Sorting Floss

Well a while back I had purchased some floss at the local Goodwill store. I had to sort it and put it in some order so I could find what I need. It is so pretty to view now and this was fun but time consuming too.I used the LoRan project cards and I punched holes so they would fit in the binder. I then purchased some clear sleeves that open on the sides and slipped them in to them. Here is the colors I have done thus far. I still have the browns and reds into pinks to sort and put in the sleeves. Below is some photos of the floss . And how do you store your floss, what is your favorite way to organize it?

some family pictures

Our DIL has gone and arrived home safely. She was a fun week, even with her morning sickness. Oh I remember those days with my first baby,her hubby Jeff. We took her to Cedar Point for the day with our daughter Shelly (Michelle). It was Shelly's birthday . We had a picnic lunch there and rode some rides easy ones so as not to jolt Hiwot and the baby. Oh Yeah and took to Amish country where she took a buggy ride and saw another person from her home country what are the odds of that one?
 Was going to have a baby shower for her but decided to wait..I had family over for a meet and visit and with us . Some could not come  but we still had a grand time. I will now post some of the photos  thanks for checking us all out .
