Woah, it’s been ages since I wrote a post…again.
Mr T and I have just returned from a trip to Camber Sands with our church. We arrived knackered and came home even more so.
I feel like I need a holiday to recover from our holiday.
Hard times eh!
Good news is though, that while away, I managed to go on two runs and went to a stretch class.
I survived the stretch class purely as I became hypnotised by the instructors amazing sparkly leggings.
When we got back, apart from doing, the standard shed loads of washing and wanting to sleep for a week, I did a little sorting of my craft space.
I was prompted by the in-laws, who politely asked how it was going and I couldn’t joyfully announce it was done which was a bit sad, so with a slight flurry of energy on Sunday evening I set to work to get it a bit more sorted.
This bureau used to have Mr T’s music things stored in it, but now has a man-cave/music room, this was freed up and I had some fun arranging my craft supplies.
I say fun, mostly it was ok but then I got a bit tired and wanted it to sort itself out.
I’m mostly pleased with the pull down front as when it’s opened out, I can see buttons, glitter, washi tape and sharpies.
It’s like a crafting dream sequence people.
Next to the bureau, I moved our two small ikea cabinets which contains things like card stock and, I discovered lots of different sticking implements, yes not purely for glue sticks, there is space for a magical glue gun and awesome sticky dots.
I know, I know. I’m livin’ the dream.
Now, you might be thinking, that’s quite a lot of drawers for a few things. The thing is, I don’t like it when a drawer so rammed full that you can’t see what’s inside it when you open it, so things here are spread out to make using the area a calm and serene one rather than a frantic, searching nightmare.
On top of the drawers are my reused Orla Kiely bedding boxes with sewing threads, fabric bundles and scissors in them, and the sewing machine.
To be honest, I just like gazing at the boxes. Who knows if I’ll ever take their lids off.
I haven’t shown you the rest of the room though.
Quite simply, I don’t want to focus on the rest as it makes me feel restless. There are some tools lying about, a random suitcase, two Hoovers (no we are not going to adopt anymore like we did when we became a sofa rescue centre) and a guitar mould. Yes, that’s correct, a guitar mould.
So, in order to feel zen and all that, I shall focus on this small corner of paradise.
One day I shall think about making a curtain to hide the tools and other belonging that live in this room but until then, I will try to craft and be creative. Failing that, I will enjoying sitting and looking at everything, happily organised.
