Ribbon Organizer Review by Suzanne, and Show Us ***Your*** Happy Place-Week 2!

Welcome to Week 2 of our “Show Us Your Happy Place” promotion!

Now for a great product review by Suzanne!

Hello, crafty friends! This is Suzanne from Scrapbooking Sue, here today with a product review from Organize More. I had the pleasure of trying out the 12-cubby Ribbon Organizer from Organize More recently, and let me tell you, I was impressed! First of all, this is how the Ribbon Organizer came out of the box…

Ribbon Organizer 1

…fully assembled! Who wouldn’t love that? Not only was it ready to go out of the box, but it also had the hardware (sawtooth hangers) mounted on the back for wall mounting, and felt feet on the bottom to keep your desk/counter scratch-free. I love that the folks at Organize More have taken their product a step further and really prepared it for all of our needs.

Ribbon Organizer 2

I could not wait to get started filling the cubbies with ribbon, and soon found my very favorite feature of the Ribbon Organizer…. I did not have to thread my ribbon spools through any dowels! I hate having to take my entire ribbon system apart once a spool of ribbon has ended, just to take the empty spool off of the dowel. Well, with the Ribbon Organizer, that is not a problem! Each spool of ribbon sits comfortably on the shelf, and the only dowels present are the ones that hold your spools in place! When you need a spool of ribbon off the shelf, it is super easy to take it off and put in back in its place. And, just look at all of the different sizes of ribbon spools it holds.

In the picture above, I showed how the wooden dowel can be used for more than just keeping your spools from rolling off the shelf. If you like to unroll your ribbon in a controlled manner and have it at the ready at all times (no searching for the ribbon ends), then you can thread the end of the ribbon under the dowel and it will securely hold it in place for you!

Ribbon Organizer 3

Personally, I like to take each spool off of the shelf when I am using it, so I did not take the time to thread each ribbon end under the dowels… but it is always an option! This is a picture of my Ribbon Organizer fully stocked! Organize More also makes Ribbon Organizers in smaller (6 cubbies) and larger (20 cubbies) sizes to meet your needs. Plus, you could always stack the organizers side-by-side, on top of one another, or mount on the wall to save desk space.

I really love this product! It keeps my ribbon neat and organized, and very easily accessible. And best of all, I ditched the dowel! You can find out more about this Ribbon Organizer and other products at the Organize More website.

 

Now, since you’ve read the review by our fantastic Suzanne, you can link up YOUR happy place at the bottom of the post from now until Thursday afternoon (October 16). The winner for this week will receive an identical Ribbon Organizer of their very own from our friends at OrganizeMore!

Something’s Coming…. Something BIG!

Hi friends! I am so soooooo excited to announce today the FUN things we have planned for CSI for the ENTIRE month of October! *squeak* it’s so thrilling!!! 🙂

We are launching a month long promotion called “Show Us Your Happy Place!” We want to see YOUR awesome craft rooms, art studios, photography spaces, sewing rooms, and MORE! Your room does not have to be a traditional “craft room” OR considered “magazine worthy” to enter any of the 4 week-long contests we are running this month, we are looking for REAL rooms that feature creative and unique storage ideas.

So, here’s how it works:

Every Monday in October one of our Contributors will review a FABULOUS craft storage related product they have received. At the bottom of the post will be an InLinkz button where you can link us to your blog and show us YOUR room. You will be able to add your space to InLinkz until Thursday at noon (Mountain Time Zone).

Then (beginning a week from this Friday) on Friday mornings in October, we will announce the weekly winner. They will WIN the same product reviewed by our Contributor Team on Monday of that same week. We will also feature their space on that post and what our favorite things were about their room!

So, on Monday, October 6, we will begin our first link party. If you haven’t ever posted about your space on your blog, NOW is the time to get that done! You will have 4 chances to enter your space to win a prize in October.

So, maybe you’re feeling sad because you don’t have a space to share? Or a blog to feature your room on? GUESS WHAT? There’s still opportunities for you to WIN PRIZES every Wednesday.

Yes, every Wednesday in October we will be featuring RANDOM DRAWING GIVEAWAYS as well!

We will actually do our FIRST random winner giveaway this FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3 to kick off this fun party month here at Craft Storage Ideas! The winner will be announced Monday, along with our first review and link up.

We are hoping, wishing, and have our fingers crossed that you will Show Us Your Happy Place in October! 🙂
