Life has a tendency to interfere with craft and blogging. Take this last week. I’ve just changed my work pattern – now two days a week in a local college and the rest working on other projects, largely from home. So, I’ve been setting up a workspace/ office/ craft room. I’m really keen to keep work separate from the rest of my home life, so having a separate area is really important
and luckily we have the room. I’ve set myself a strict budget and, anyway, I much prefer to re-use or upcycle. I also want to work in a space that’s practical and makes me happy.
Long story short, I invested in some pegboard to help keep tools off my worktable. Yesterday and this morning I’ve been happily getting it sorted into a collection of found, recycled and charity shop frames. I’m not quite there yet – I think what I need to put up there will emerge gradually, so for the moment it’s a work in progress. The good news is that it makes me smile, particularly the blingy gold-framed mini magnetic whiteboard. Great for shopping and to-do lists. And if it all looks a little wonky, that’s because everything in our hundred plus year-old house is a bit wonky.
(As a side note, the cat just jumped up onto the keyboard and typed ‘deeeeeeeer’ into the title box of this post. A craving for venison perhaps? A mis-spelled display of affection? [he is a cat after all]. Or just his usual heat-seeking behaviour? BTW, remind me to tell you some time about my previous puss who dialled the emergency services at 1.30 in the morning. True story. Honest.)
