I’m becoming quite the collector of fluffy ‘stroke me’ cushions in our pad! I’m not sure how that happened but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s nice to break up a room by adding in some textures, particularly when most of the room is one colour, in my case all grey!
Have you ever made your Christmas gifts? As you can imagine, I have in the past. Most years it’s been something really nice and festive to do but I do remember with a real lack of fondness, the year I was far, far too ambitious! I even roped Nick in and the poor boy spent an entire day cutting the pages I had designed for my tear notepads. Then the frosted glass spray paint didn’t work for the personalised bottles I’d dreamt up, peeling off as it dried and I had to come up with a different idea on the fly to rectify this disaster. See, even DIY bloggers have fails sometimes and needless to say the whole day wasn’t the most enjoyable.
I’ve said it before and it’s true, I really do love organisation DIY projects. Maybe it’s because life feels so hectic most of the time that any small ways I can help curb the crazy is very welcome. This project can help you organise any part of your home really but my initial thoughts were for my art supplies. They’re always in need of a tidy, especially when they’re also always increasing! Just to throw another idea out there, you could also use it for mail. Perhaps one pocket for ‘keepers’, one for ‘unread’ and one for ‘action’. I could go on but I won’t bore you.
