Happy New Year!

I can’t believe it is already the 10th of January.  I hope everyone is enjoying the new year.  Even though I haven’t posted I have been writing down ideas for new blog posts and I already have a sheet full so stay tuned.

Some of the topics will be:

  • Word for 2018
  • Instant Pot tips and recipes – I have a few friends who just got an Instant Pot (or electric pressure cooker) so these are definitely needed
  • My new camera and some of my photos
  • Home Improvement projects
  • More companies with great customer service
  • Sewing projects
  • Trips we have taken
  • Planner tips

I have some internal goals when it comes to posting, but I won’t share them until it appears I can actually follow my plan.  I will say that there will be multiple posts in the month of January – I know that is shocking 🙂

Until later – Heather



Updated: DIY Ribbon Organizing

This is an update to one of my first blog posts.  I think this idea is much better and takes up less room.

So, when I was first organizing ribbon I used a plastic basket, dowels and some twist ties.  This basket was still in my cupboard until January of this year.


January is when I started to seriously reorganize the sewing/craft, etc room (that will take multiple posts to show so that will be done some other time).

Anyways, I saw on Pinterest (or somewhere) about the idea of hanging ribbons on a mutiple pant hanger (or at least that is what I call it) and I had one sitting in my closet.  This allows me to use the space in the cupboard for stackable items  (labeled boxes, etc) and I can hang the ribbon holder on the door handle when I am working on a project.  When it is not being used it could hang in a closet.

Anyone have any suggestions?
