Tuesday Tour: The Office

The day our stuff was delivered there were few things in our office. By office I mean the room formally designated as master bedroom. It has a large window that lets in a ton of bright light in the morning and perfect light in the afternoon. Perfect light for taking photographs. Made more sense to us to use it as an office than a bedroom.


As I was unpacking a few things made their way in there.

The next day I used some of the book boxes to “make” storage “shelves”.

Some craft and art supplies were in our shipment and I needed some way to contain it for the time being.




There’s too much cardboard all over the place and too many white walls.

I felt the need for some color on the walls so made some chevrons.

Currently, this is how it looks. Yep, really messy. I didn’t tidy up before shooting these photos. You know, just keeping it real. Eventually, I’d like to get better storage for all the supplies (maybe a few of these?). Or maybe do something better with the boxes. In any case this room is nowhere close to done.

If anyone is wondering, the furniture is all from IKEA. The metal wastebasket (or rubbish bin) was found in the garden section.

Tuesday Tour: Brisbane Apartment

So when we moved into our current apartment in Brisbane I captured a video on my phone. I finally got around to uploading it to my computer. And I figured out how to do some basic editing. What I can’t do  is post the video on my blog (cause I’m cheap and this is a free blog). But I can do the next best thing and post a link to it on you tube!


Currently our place is lacking an organizational method. I’ve got paper work and receipts everywhere. Ok, so they’re not everywhere, just all over our bookcase. We’re still waiting for our stuff to get here off the boat. It’s possible (I hope!) that in the beginning of May I’ll be able to hang my artwork on the walls. And have little decorative bowls to put things in.  I feel as if we’re in this awkward waiting phase.  I know we have stuff coming. Not a lot, but some. I don’t want to go out and start buying lots of stuff (I’m really missing my kitchen utensils). But I really, really want stuff on my walls! And the rest of my yarn stash. Yarn is important.
