Hello blog friends, it’s been some time. Let’s catch up.
We’re about 1 month away from our [fingers crossed] last move for a little while. I’m tired of packing up, moving, unpacking over the last few years. But there is something kind of great about moving & redesigning to fit new parameters and getting creative with what you already have. So besides the budget planning, this is where the rest of my thoughts have been lately.
A new creative space.
Being on a budget, many of the details/ideas are DIY.
First: A new coat of paint on my desk and on the file cabinets to set a matching set of tones are first on the list. Right now I’ve got more of a crazy un-matching color scheme that doesn’t really work together or inspire calmness.
Second: Washi tape. Washi tape will be present in the new space. I’ve got plans to create a washi tape calendar and washi tape border details arount whatever prints/images are inspiring at the moment. That way, they’re easily switched out and leave no marks on the wall afterwards.
Third: A chalkboard for ideas.
Fourth: A string of photos, cards and mementos that speak to me hung with twine above the desk.
Fifth: Succulents/cactus plants for company.
I’ve been corralling ideas/inspiration here.
We’ll work with what we have, once we get there.. but it’s fun to dream & to plan. The details in the plan are what make it special.
May you notice the special details today. Have a happy one!
