Celebrating Individuality

Creating custom has led to many personal revelations.

I've found that individuality offers uniqueness, interest, creativity, and A LOT of inventory, especially ribbon!

I've got so much inventory in fact that soon I'll be moving into my new home studio.

In anticipation of this move, I've come across a great way to organize my rolls of ribbon. I'm so excited about this revelation, there's nothing else to do now but share it with all of you!

Inexpensive Valance rods are the perfect solution. They are extremely easy to hang, the cost is only about $3 per rod, they adjust to any length you need, and they are really strong and durable. I love that the rolls can be removed and transported to your project and easily placed back. You can also slide the rolls over to make way for a new color
(that unusual colored ribbon on clearance you couldn't pass up)
that happens to go best right in the middle of the rod without having to remove any of the other rolls.

My favorite part.....just look at it!!!!
What a celebration of Individuality
I can't wait to make more custom books
without having to search through my inventory for the perfect ribbon!


  1. Awesome idea!!!!! I love ribbon and this is a perfect way to store/display it. And, a new home studio...even more fun. Hope all is well!!!

  2. It really is a very clever and convenient way to organize ribbon spools. Thanks for sharing!

  3. You are a GENIUS!! We too are moving and I am fortunate (and really excited) to have a Craft Room. I have zillions (yes, zillions) of ribbon and have been scouring the internet for creative ways to store it. You take the prize!! Once settled in I'll grab a few pics to share! Thanks again!!
