As the host of this Blog-Hop, I do love Spring for many reasons.
Spring to me is like an awakening call, is like things has been pressed the re-set button and life has a new beginning. There are many new events and projects to look forward to in this time of the year 😀
For many of you who has been following me for a while, you may realize that I’ve been away for the past few days. I needed to as I need some time out. Partially I was busy with SPRING-Cleaning.
I must say the inspiration came after I’ve read an earlier post by Handmade by Hannah. Hannah did a Book Review on Craft Show & Sell: Expert Tips for Confident Craft Selling earlier this year.
I chance upon this book last Friday in the bookshop.
When I flipped it, I immediately fell in love with it.
I agree with the Review done by Hannah and how inspiring this book has been 😉
The first Chapter has been the source of the inspiration for me~
THE BIG SPRING CLEAN UP.
For the past 1 year, I had been contemplating on doing craft full-time. I knew deep down in my heart somewhere that crafting is the thing I wanted to do now, but I still can’t let go of the past. To be honest, I was pretty much torn apart somewhere between what I want to do and what the reality was.
After reading part of the book on the train ride home, I had a chat with my loving hubby once I reached home last Friday.
I told him that I really want to do craft full-time now, and I needed the a space. (The thing is we only had 2 rooms in this house. One being our bedroom and the other a study room which is co-shared between me and Hubby.)
As you may know the past one year, I had been crafting at a crafting table. The thing is, I had many craft supplies kept away. Some in the drawers, some under the bed, some hidden elsewhere. Many forgotten items keep away in some dusty corner.
It was really messy.
Hubby has really been very supportive and told me,
“Yes, is time to reorganised, you’ve put it away too long.
Just clean it up and have it organised.”
And so the BIG SPRING-cleaning happened…
Don’t ask me why or how, but this book really got me Springing into action. Is like this invisible energy came from no-where and I started clearing out. I don’t want to bore you to death with the before look. I begin organizing, putting all the cloth and felt in the basket. Beads, bells, buttons, sequins in glass jars. Paper in folders. Yarn into the basket. I’ve been sorting out the ribbon, trims and laces.
~Phew it was really all very hard work with this organizing 😦
Lovely hubby gave me his table too for this Big Clean Up.
Now my items are sorted out and clearly seen and I must say I can easy craft with what I had.. Yay! 😀
I threw away my uni-books and got my craft resources into the room. The wall has many resources which I collected over the years. You can see that is nicely segregated and labelled. I’ve also pinned up some inspirational words on the wall. The extreme right photo above showed how I’ve strung up my hoop art. And I’ve also got the SAL which I did earlier all framed and hung up too.
Yay! I really excited now to seat here and craft away all day long.
(*Big Grin* 😀 )
