• What I would do differently:Well, since I really just started crafting, I am starting to accumulate supplies rather quickly, so I definitely need to organize, and pronto!
• Items used: one of our old pant hangers that we don’t use anymore, and a bunch of ribbon that was stuck in a bag!! 😉

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
