Hello friends!! Wow- it’s been 3 weeks since I last spoke to you all. Thank you for your kind words, support and well-wishes. I am back on the go, the shop is open, and life goes on!!
The last few weeks have been good for me. I took a mental and physical “break” and have been re-focussing. I re-organised parts of the house that have been in a state of chaos since I did the markets at the end of last year (yes – it’s taken me THAT long……), and I finally got around to sorting out and organising my workspace. Bags and bags of recycling and donations later and I am once again feeling good about my space! Do you also feel happier when your environment is organised, everything has a place, and most importantly it looks good and makes you happy to be there! I do. So – want to take a little tour around my office with me?
This is what I see while I sit at my computer. I have my desk in the middle of the room, which is not always the most practical, but it works for me. I can see the sunshine coming in the windows, and keep an eye on the front-gate (to spot the all-important courier!!). Sometimes It’s VERY messy, sometimes there are flowers – at the moment it is relatively tidy and I have a lovely delicate Orchid keeping me company. Sammy also joins me on the desk quite often – but wasn’t around when I took these pictures.
I have displayed all my favourite goodies on the shelves directly across from me – lovely white ceramics, the cute owls, precious books from some of my favourte, inspiring authors (recognise any?), a lovely SweetWilliam print, and a collection of favourite stationery and the hanging birds from papertales.
And then – my worktable! Above which I have now organised and displayed my (embarrassing) collection of lovely washi tape!! I tell myself that I do NOT need more, and must not be afraid to use it – there is more than enough!!!
On the other side of the room is another set of shelves and work space, where somehow the colours are softer…….funny how that happened. Notice my lovely knitting bag from lovely leah at sangthebird. And I love the wooden pegs and spools in the glass jars – reminiscent of a candy-store. The map boxes remind me of my dad who is map-mad!!!!
So – this is where I spend my days making lovely things and packing orders to send off to all of you lovely gals!! I am really fortunate to have this space.
So now it’s back to normal – sending out orders, creating lovely designs and blogging!!!! For those of you who live nearby I’ll be hosting a pop-up market here at my house next week. I’ll post all the details here on the blog a little later today!!
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!! Big hugs.
