Since Hubster and I decided to purchase the house we currently live in, we have started to organise ourselves and are trying to sort things so they are just the way we want them. One catalyst for all this organisation is the fact that we are getting the carpets replaced. As we are already living in the house, this means moving ALL of the furniture out of the house while the old carpets are pulled up and the new ones installed. Phew, the thought of this literally makes my blood run cold so we have decided to start early and get things ship shape so we aren’t moving junk out and then back in at the time.
The first stop for us is the Kitchen. We’ve already installed this handy dandy kitchen shelf.
Today we started on corralling all the junk we had attached to the fridge. Unfortunately I didn’t take a before photo (I swear my brain is like goo at the moment) but rest assured it was a state. Photos, menus, recipes, other assorted papers stuck all over it. So much so that we could no longer see the awesome magnets we were given as wedding presents and those that we have collected on our travels.
So many friends are about to have babies! Luckily I’ve been laid up with an injury so that gives me plenty of opportunity for knitting all sorts of baby-cuteness!
It seems that life is getting in the way of crafty times again… A series of unfortunate events has equated to my being quite seriously injured. Not conducive to getting things done. Luckily, I can still search for all sorts of inspiration to tide me over until I’m back to normal.
As mentioned previously I’ve recently acquired a pair of shutters.
After much ummm-ing and ahhh-ing over what the heck to do with them I finally made up my mind. Distress them of course!
For as long as i can remember, I have wanted a secretary desk with a fold down desktop surface. When I worked in an office job I would spend many a lunch hour in furniture shops ooh-ing and ahh-ing over desks that I could not afford.
It seems I’ve stumbled onto a winner with my little vesties! I’ve been inundated by orders from friends wanting them for their littlies or for gifts… So a lot of my time has been taken up whipping these up….
Nevertheless I’ve still had time for inspiration so here’s what I’ve been perusing this week. Continue reading
Recently a friend of mine did some research and gave me some advice on starting a small business. To thank her I wanted to make her something cute yet practical that wouldn’t take a lot of time…. Enter LOLA.
