Another Cool Idea

So today is the day!!!  Today is an open house celebrating a friend's new digs.  More importantly.... her new crafting digs!!!  There is nothing more exciting than upgrading scrap space, I definitely know!!!  So for her housewarming (craft-room-warming as I'm calling it), I got her some organizational items for the new space.  You all know me.... it's all about the Chi!!!  So among some of the organizational items I got for her (and the thing I'm most excited about) was THIS little slice of awesomeness:

This is the Dignitet curtain wire from IKEA.  It doesn't look like much in it's packaging, but let me share with you just how cool this unassuming wire really is!!!

Use this wire with clips and hooks to store ribbon!!!  Get that ribbon OFF your work surfaces and on the wall!  It's visible, accessible and organized!!!  LOVE this idea (click on pics to go directly to the blog posts that featured each of these pics)!!!

Hanging curtains from the ceiling to divide a room or create a fun custom made canopy bed!  And then there's always the intended use... hanging curtains.

This pic of the curtains looks very modern and industrial.  What a great look for ANY craft space!!! :)

Then, of course, there's always the fun EMBELLISHMENT storage!!! What a fun way to SEE all of your embellisments while getting them out of the way.  This almost looks a little artsy fartsy if you ask me!!!  But I can't end this post without, what I think is the COOLEST use for this incredible wire, the gallery!!!  This wire makes for the perfect gallery to show off all the masterpieces that are created in your new craft space:

The pic shows the wire hung in a child's room, but I think this would look AMAZING with my Tim Holtz-esque tags hanging from it!!!  HMMMMMMMM.... I'm suddenly tempted to keep this gift for myself!

What other uses could this thing have????  You all know I'm gonna break down and get me one, or two!!!  Honestly, I think I'm finally running out of vertical space to cover!!! hahahahaha.  I hope this gave everyone some fun ideas!  Until next time.....
