After: Still long but not freakishly so, with more layers.
My weekend craft project was this lovely ribbon holder. It was my BFF's idea (link to her blog --->) and is basically just a piece of ribbon strung though the middle of the ribbon spools and then tied to my desk shelf. It works quite well and is expandable as I get more ribbon.
That was basically all I did this weekend other than study for my Applied Math: Differential Equations course exam.
