Not at all. I added the pics as a reference to a post I made and I explained it there. Not sure why I didn't add it here too. Thanks for all the comments. I saw something similar on another board and tweeked it a little so it's not totally my brain child.

Thanks for adding the info! I hope I didn't soud too harsh! I forgot the smiley face!
BRILLIANT idea! I am impressed!!!!

I would have loved to buy a clip it up, but could not afford it so went searching and I made my own for under $20. I found an old lampshade at Goodwill that was as tall and wide as I wanted it and made sure the top and bottom were attached to one another so it was one piece. I stripped it of the material, spray painted it, then screwed it onto a wooden lazy susan. (my was actually too wide for the lazy susan so I had to attach it to a round piece of wood first, then the lazy susan, but depending on size you wouldn't have to.) Voila a homeade clip it up that works awesome! I use paperclips to attach the stickers, etc. The dividers from top to bottom worked great as natural dividers for my items. I used some chipboard and made tabs for each one like you see in a clothing store. I love it and it's really fuctional and I feel like I use more of my stash because I can see it all!

I think PennyScrapbooks is correct. It must be a lampshade! Fantastic idea. I'm wishing I had bought that 99 cent lampshade yesterday at Value Village.

Well that's just mean! Is it a lamp shade frame? Give some info!

Great idea!
