It feels like ages since I blogged. I've been in a state of flux. I've closed my Etsy store for the meantime, as we're moving soon - I'm feeling strangely guilty not doing anything apart from dream jewellery-wise. This morning I went for a walk - this gorgeous beach will be one of the only things I'll miss about where we live - apart from the proximity to some of my dear friends. I'm so ready to move on! Tomorrow my boys will be having a Transition Day at their new schools, and I will have my first shift at my new work - everything is changing, and I think for the first time in my life - I'm not scared. Overwhelmed at times? Absolutely. But scared? No. I'm ready to move, and to move on, and I can't wait to see what the future will bring for me and my gorgeous family.
PS: I have started some very preliminary sketches for my first collection, which will tentatively be released in December/January. Stay tuned!
I just finished this amazing biography of Jim Morrison. I've always been a Doors fan, but never realised just how ground breaking they were. I was fascinated with Jim's ill-fated relationship with Pamela Courson.
A little behind with this! (but I have been decluttering)
Pictured here are a steamer, a honey pot (bought for being delightfully cute but never used), an odd plate (not sure where it came from), a set of 8 cream napkins, an old baking tray past its best, a pizza stone stand, and a battery charger - the batteries disappeared years ago.
My husband came in as I was photographing this, and didn't want most of this thrown out - he's taken them up to the apartment he's using while in Angaston - I hope I don't see any of it at our new house!
I borrowed this wonderful book from the library, not expecting it to be anywhere near as inspiring and motivating. I now have this on back order from the Book Depository, I simply must own my own copy! you can also buy it here, which I might end up doing if it doesn't come into stock soon!
In the meantime, I have this link bookmarked to read more about Megan.
This week the photograph below only accounts for a very small amount of items that I have delcuttered, donated, thrown away or recycled. My oldest son was away for the weekend - for the Pedal Prix - so I took advantage of it and reorganised and cleaned his room thoroughly. He was not impressed, but I managed to recycle, throw out, and donate about 3 1/2 garbage bags full...let's see how much he notices is gone, seeing as he knew "exactly where his stuff was".
This week my photo above is of 5 scarves that I did not wear even once this winter, and two handbags I haven't used for at least 3 years...possibly more like 5. Off they go to the Salvos!
