Today I have been really busy!
Baba went to my mums, and after I finished my work related things, I decided to carry on with the sorting of the house.
I finished my art cupboard, and it is so organised now, I am so pleased. I can finally see things, and I know what I have and don’t have. I did not realise that I had so much paper, which is great as I can now get on with my scrapbooking and being arty.
I love doing all art projects and always have, but came to a bit of a standstill when Baba was about 6 months. Since then I haven’t really picked anything up. It has been lurking in the cupboard and I think that I have actually been a bit scared of it. But no more!
I have found all the items that I kept from Baba’s christening so that is the next album that I am going to start. I have also got a couple of others, that I want to complete, but the bug has come back. How quickly things change, not long after I finished the cupboard. I got an email inviting me to a scrapbooking day, karma I think. So I am all booked in for that and I can’t wait. Seven hours of total bliss. Just time to scrapbook. I can’t wait!
I have also sorted out all of my knitting stuff, and quilting items. I haven’t done either of these for years, so I am going to have to look back into the techniques before I really get going. I am hoping that it is like riding a bike and that I will just pick them all up again. Hopefully that will happen!
I can’t wait to get back into all my arts and crafts. But even more important than that, I finally have a space to write. A little space in my kitchen, a nice clean bureaux that is no longer cluttered. But it is still a space and it is my space.
The bureaux sits underneath all of Baba’s paintings that are on the wall. So whenever I get stuck I can sit there and look at them for a bit of inspiration. So number 67) Create a writing space in the house on my 101 Things in 1001 Days List has been completed number five, and I am so pleased! I am getting there you know.
So tomorrow I have another busy day planned. Clean the upstairs of the house, iron, sort paperwork, then work. Then the evening is just me time! How nice is it to say that!
