So its official I love being surrounded by all the clutter, its how I work, probably (make that deffo) way too much for some people but its how my brain likes to work for some reason. I am definitely a visual person cue the million framed and blue tac-ed pictures on the walls. So I took the plunge at the start of the week with the help from the father and de-cluttered my space ( yes this is really my life de-cluttered!) moved a lot of furniture out and bought a whole new room of cabinets, a bed, a desk, lamps and storage to fit my ever expanding life. I did how ever donate twenty bin bags full of clothes to my local charity shop and a hospice shop that supported my Grandma in her dying days so it felt rewarding not just for me but knowing that my unwanted items were going to others. Yes I could of ebayed them or depoped them to the max as I am always asked about hauling my clothes, I just couldn’t stand snapping and posting like 200 items of clothing that had been laying around for yonks, I know it doesn’t sound like much of an ask but when you’re helping look after a seven week old, work plus being poorly I couldn’t face it. I have reduced my clothing now down to one small box of shoes/bags and a chest of drawers of clothes which before was two cupboards, chest of drawers and six boxes plus three boxes for shoes and bags, I decided that as I only live in jumpers, breton tops, skinny jeans and boots that, that was a crazy amount for one girl, plus skater dresses and fancy things don’t really suit me anymore.
I have been struggling with the worlds worst chest infection, cue at least three asthma attacks a day, don’t worry I am dosed up to the eye balls on paracetamol and antibiotics its just fallen at the wrong time just before my adventures to Paris. But I am attacking 2015 with a more positive outlook, which really isn’t like me. Its finally nice to have a big space where I can feel comfortable and dedicate my time to being creative probably the first time since I left university almost five years ago that I feel comfortable and have enough space to work.
The bed itself still needs jazzing up on the hunt for the perfect bed covers but that can wait, I am so looking forward to getting my teeth into all my commissions for, new products and new business ventures in the year to come. I also bagged myself a copy of the latest edition “the stripped back issue” of things and ink magazine hello inspiration time to snuggle up in bed and get planning finally!
– Lamps were a gift but I believe from Wilkinsons (now in the sale!) and Debenhams and the mini white shelves were from tiger that I painted white * This is not a sponsored post.
