All Tied Up - Ribbon Holder

Hi everyone.  I have been gone for a lonnnnng time baby.  Things have truly been crazy.  My Uncle Bill's battle with cancer is over, and, my father-in-law has been moved home so grandma can be with him.    School is out, my daycare numbers are really low and my kids are still super busy with sports, work and friends.  I have been working on this project (it has been almost done for 5 months) for a while.  I decided to finish it when my daughter was helping herself to more of my ribbon.  My greatest fear is that an animal is using all of the pieces to build a nest in her room -- YUCK.  So, here it is:

She is such a jock -- but loves her girlie side.

I started with a piece of wood I got from Micheal's for about 1.50 with a 40% coupon.  Love those coupons.

I painted it a turquoise blue and picked out zebra print to go with it.

I LOVE mod podge.

I painted a few clothes pins and attached them with some hot glue.  I put a few ribbons on for now.  It will be such fun finding all the little stragglers under her bed : 0

Oh, I have been dabbling with a few beads -- so much fun.

There it is.  I just used a picture hanger thingy on the back so it can be hung up in her room.

Thanks for stopping by  ; )
