It Wednesday again and that means it's time for Wishcasting Wednesday. Today, Jamie over at jamieridlerstudios.ca asks "What do you wish for your space?"
I wish for peace in my space. Last summer we bought my in-laws house. It's a cute ranch house in the town where both me and my husband grew up. It has a great big backyard that I love. The only issue is that it is a small house. We are a family of 5, but my in-laws raised a family of 6 in this house! The biggest problem is that my husband and I so much stuff and then there is the fact that we have 3 kids that are 26 1/2 months and 16 month twins. That means that we have a ton of toddler toys and not necessarily the space for them. It is nice that the warm weather is finally here and some of the toys can go outside, but we still have toys inside, my craft stuff and my husbands wood working stuff, not to mention the other household things that people normally have. I think for me to have peace in my space, it will mean going through a lot of things and re-evaluating how necessary they really are. I then need to get rid of what I don't need and organize the things that I want to keep! The most important thing that I need to remember and follow through with is, "if I don't a have a space for it, don't buy it"!
I really like my house and my yard and need to really buckle down and make this my family's home, not just a house. Along with having peace inside, I wish to have a peaceful space near my garden to spend some free time in the nice weather. I also want to have a peaceful space to retreat to when I want to be creative! Regarding a peaceful space for creativity, it could mean the kitchen table so that my family is near, it could mean the basement away from others depending on my mood. I just want to have a space where I can enjoy being creative!
