We have been very busy here lately. I’m excited to say its because we have been decluttering. Oh my deary me, you won’t believe the amount of stuff I have sorted through!! We have started in the attic in a bid to make some space in order to move other stuff (like my craft things) up into the attic.
I mentioned here that I would like a craft space in the attic. I would ideally like space for a table for my sewing machine, and storage for all my bits and bobs. However, I have sooooo much stuff it’s unbelievable. I’m not sure if I have shown you this picture before but I actually find it embarrassing that I have so much stuff.
Hubby and I have spent 2 full days up in the attic together and hubby has spent an extra day on his own up there, and it is starting to come together nicely. I have thrown away anything that has no use, bagged up some crafty things for little lady’s school, donated items to the charity shop, given fabric to friends and made a pile of unusable scraps that can be used as stuffing. I was physically and emotionally exhausted!
But!! Most of my bits and pieces are organised into drawers,
It’s not quite there yet but it is getting there and I am so excited! It’s not the spacious, light filled studio I always imagined but it’s mine, it’s big enough and I will take that! Hubby is planning to rearrange the lighting and run an extension lead for power. I also plan to ask for daylight lamps/bulbs for my birthday to make sure the light is adequate.
I am so excited by this you can’t believe. And the fabric I have rediscovered is amazing! I can’t wait to get up there and get stuck in! 😀
