I've been on such a crazy needle felting burst of late my entire living room looks as though a rainbow coloured sheep exploded. The hilarious thing is our daughter is enjoying crafting at the moment too and she has taken up residence at the dining table with her weaving as well as her needle felting on the couch lol. There is now no longer anywhere safe to sit and watch tv or eat a meal hahaha.
Eating at our dining table or sitting on our lounge is like playing some sort of bizarre board game, in which one has to slide items into various positions to fit successfully.
I've found I'm not one to put everything away tidy when the day is is upon us as I do lose my creative mojo and can't be bothered pulling it all back out to continue. This has caused me to end up with a serious amount of half finished projects over the years.
I know I'm not the only one to do this, I've spoken with several creative friends and they assure me through photographic evidence that their homes are creatively decorated in the same way hehehe.
We've only been here at our new property for a few months and its the first house I've had without a dedicated art/creative area. I'm ok with it for now, I know my time is coming and when we start renovating, there WILL be an art room with my name on it lol.
We're just at that stage of ok so what are we going to do with this butt ugly 80's brown brick house we purchased. I'm not totally bagging out the 80's, there was some pretty groovy stuff come from that era, but as far as housing in Australia..... lets just say it's was very conservative, which in my case is just not something I deal well with lol.
We've always built or purchased homes full of character, people that know me know I don't do boring, I like my house to be an inviting home with it's own personality, to feel cosy and welcoming, but in this case we totally loved the energy of the property and it's location is perfectly situated between the city, the mountains and the ocean, so that kind of won over the ugly lol.
The guy we bought it off was pretty much a hippy bushy if you know what I mean, everywhere you turn there are different fruit trees and gardens, he has planted over 50 different varieties of Bamboo!! It's incredible walking through the maze of bamboo trees scattered all over the property.
There's also an insanely large Jacaranda tree that towers over all the other trees, I can't even get it in a full photo, it's massive. Living in North Queensland we never had the delight of these vibrant lavender flower bombs. It's stunning and mesmerising when in flower. So I will happily just wander off now and continue creating a crazy mess throughout the living areas and enjoying our beautiful property, whilst flooding my boards on Pinterest with renovating ideas. hahaha
