I don’t know about you but I’m still riding that new year wave of ‘let’s get organised’ and ‘it’s time to sort my life out’. You know the drill. I’m on over drive with the brand spanking new office / studio (room tour coming your way soon) and I’ve become an even bigger fan than usual when it comes to nifty ways of concealing clutter, whether that’s the piles of product and materials I own or just the clutter in my head! If like me you’re currently banging this drum, I’ve rounded up seven ways to DIY your way to a more organised workspace / home.

Wow! What a year! I think I said the same thing this time last year but it was meant in a slightly more positive sense. I feel like we’ve arrived at the end of 2017 by the skin of our teeth, weary and so aware of God carrying us on his shoulders. It’s been a tough one and yet I don’t want to forget how many great things have also happened this year. I know there’s a tendency for them to get lost in a sea of blows to the head but as with every year I feel compelled to look back and take stock of the last twelve months. In many ways I feel like I’ve aged three years in the space of one and I’m pretty sure it looks like it too but there were also so many blessings that can’t be ignored and making myself list them out here makes it clear that this year has been richer in highs than lows even though it may not feel like it on a day to day basis.
It’s always good to take time out at the end of the year to reflect on the 365 days that just passed by. There’s something really satisfying about sitting back and taking stock of the year as a whole. My Husband and I tend to do it for our lives, praising God for all that he’s done and now I thought I’d set aside some space to look at The Lovely Drawer.
