However, since it is Thrifty Thursday let me start with that.
Last week while shopping at Michael's I followed my usual path: beads, wood, paint, as is, clearance, scrapbooking. While looking over the "As Is" bin, I found a broken thread spool organized marked significantly down from $15 to $3.75. I snatched it up, knowing I could work with the flaw.
Basically the only thing wrong was that one of the bars was unglued/undone on one side.
So, I ripped it off the broken bar
and hammered down the pointy staples.
Then, I screwed in some of the enclosed hooks into the top of the vertical pieces before hammering some nails into the wall and and hanging the organizer.
What did I do with it once it was hung? Well, added wire of course.
Granted this is not all of my wire and it's not very well organized, but I've been too busy to finish. In any case, it's great having my wire so easily accessible.
The Alabama Accents Etsy Team (of which I am a member) has been VERY active the last few days in making treasuries. As such, let me share two of the treasuries I've been included in.
| Spring is in the Air|
|Beat the Winter Blues|
In addition, there are a new pair of earrings in the shop.
