So when I'm nervous or stressed, I clean or organize something. Yesterday after Keely's nap I cleaned up my ribbon spools.
They were all coming unraveled and dangling down all over the place and now they are all pretty much rolled up. I have two more boxes of pretty ribbon that won't fit up there on those spools though. That's a bummer because I really like to look at them. They're pretty. I plow through the falling towers of thrifted sheets on the floor of my dark, messy, craft closet and sit my giant angelic harp on the floor in front of them and play odes to their prettiness.
I don't really have a harp.
I do like to sing about my ribbons.
(You look pret-TEE! Oh so pret-TEE! So grosgrain-y and satiny and Briiiiiiiight!…..)
Here's a Tip from the Trench I guess. I used these clear over-the-door shoe organizers in my classroom to hold all sorts of stuff. I quickly brought that idea home. I have this one inside my craft closet.
