Time to Get Organized

I'm in the process of moving my sewing stuff to our guest room so I'll be in "organizing mode" today.  Here's a peak at a project I'm working on to help organize some of my ribbon & lace.

I found this shelf at the flea market.  It has about a billion little shelves.
I took some of them out and took the original back off -- it was nasty.

I took some of the pages out of these old magazines and decoupaged
a new piece of plywood and attached it to the back.

Here's a close-up.  I really like the way it turned out.
I'll have to figure out how many shelves to put back in because
I'd like some of the graphics to show.

Before I go, I want to mention that I've added some things to my side bar...

First, Thought for the Day...
today's topic is organization.

Second, a link to a swap I signed up for.
I think it's still open if you want to join, just click on the picture. (on my side bar.)
I think it'll be great fun!

(Sorry for the blurry pics.  I sized them small for my sidebar so they're showing blurry here.)
