My new way to store ribbon

I was blog surfing one day and I saw this awesome idea to store the ribbon that you get by the yard(please forgive me I can not remember the blog I lifted this from or I would put the original link in) The lady that came up with this is a genius. All you do is wrap the ribbon around an "old fashioned" clothes pin and secure it with a a peralized pin. The lady that originally did this had all of her ribbon divided into clear glass jars, and it looked so pretty. I hope to do that eventually but for now all of them are in a clear storage tub. Let me tell you, I just love this idea. It really helped me to condense all of my ribbon into one place. I didn't realize how much ribbon I had untill I did this, I had enough ribbon to cover about 95 cloths pins

Some other things that I have made

I love to alter things, I have made many many projects but here are a few of my favorites. The picture frame hold my very first mothers day present from my son that he made me at preschool.
I love to make the clocks. The one pictured is actually the second one that I have made for my house, and is in my scrap space. I have made a total of 6 clock in different themes.

The stuff I made for the September Design team

I belong to a design team that my very talented friend renee(here is the link to the Design team page) started. Every month she gives us a sketch and we have to put our spin on it. I am very excited to be apart of this. This month she gave us 2 sketches and we had to make an altered item. I made a paper bag calendar. I was super excited to make this because I got to use my new sewing maching for the stiching around the edges. I am really pleased with how everyting turned out
