Storage things are almost...almost...as addicting as fabric to me.
In my wanderings through What's on Your Work desk Wednesday...also fondly referred to as WOYWW......one of the gals was talking about this marvelous piece of organization that she had discovered through another friend.
Well, of course I saw the usefulness and hurried down to my local Harbor Freight Tools center and bought one....$18.99...and believe me...it holds a LOT of brick-a-brack. Isn't it marvelous? It's like a 4 layered Lazy Susan....it's metal and spins like a dream! Ok....maybe that's a little dramatic but I DO love it!
While I was shopping...I don't think that's what the guys say when they go to Harbor Freight...but that's what I was doing, shopping, I also found ON SALE these magnetic holder strips....bingo!...I have been wanting to get one of these to hold my scissors for a long time and there they were....$4.99 regular price $9.99!! So of course, I bought two.
When I opened them up, wouldn't you know it?...That name right there in the middle was just printed on one very long sticker. Well, naturally, I thought...I bet I could make that cute before I hang it up.
And so I did!
I peeled off the sticker (sorry US General, ya gotta go).
I got out my trusty E-600. Can I just say....I LOVE E-600!
And some simply cute black and white swiss dot 1" grosgrain ribbon.....I also love swiss dot anything!
I just covered the magnets with my wonderful E-600 and laid the ribbon perfectly over the top of the magnets...doesn't that look sooooo much better than that sticker?
Of course, you could also use something like Washi tape instead of ribbon, I just happen to have a LOT of ribbon and NO Washi Tape.
And there you have it....a place for all my scissors.....
....uh, oh...my scissor addiction is showing pfffffff! Secretly, I have more in the drawer, I might have to buy a third strip :)
And look, even my rotary cutters can hang there and look pretty!
So, now with this new organization, I feel ready to dive into some of my procrastination pile.
