Where did she go?

I bet some of you were wondering that, right?

(I just wrote this post, version 1, about how everything has been going really crappy for me the last year or so, was adding the pictures at the end when blogger crashed, and ta-da! Apparently no more autosave to draft! Didn't see that one coming, 30 minutes of writing gone. Oh the irony!)

Well anyway, here's take 2, and I hope you don't mind the blog being just a bit overly personal just this once. (If you don't want to know, scroll down and look at some lovely interior design inspiration instead!)

Last summer, this little Miss Overachiever burned-out, spent months in the couch staring at the wall. I did of course spend quite a lot of time in front of the sewing machine as well (as I think you know), now that's great therapy! Then - no job for the latter of fall and all winter (both because I just didn't have the energy and because the market isn't exactly peachy). Somewhere in this mess, the relationship I've been in for the last few years went belly up and died. So the last few months have been all about what to do next, who is going to move, and where to, and what will I do if I can't find a job... With all those things rambling around in my head like a bunch of wild boar there has been absolutely no room for sewing. But then finally a month ago I did find a job, and a quite good one actually, so I'll be able to support myself again. Now in two days my ex is moving out, and in between the chaos, the boxes and bags, I have decided to stay here, in my big apartment.

Maybe now I can get something done again, in a time not too far away! I have so many great ideas! I just need to get me a desk/sewing table. I have looked at a big one I can use for both purposes at IKEA, quite cheap but really ugly. However at this point I don't care. It's not always about the furniture, a lot can be done to make a room look great anyway!  I've been reading a lot of home decor magazines and blogs the last week, inspired to make this place more "me" in the near future. It's all about color!

We'll see what happens, but for now I wanted to share some of my favorite inspiration pictures of gorgeous homes at this moment.

  1. Why does it seem like things tend to take a nose at exactly the same time? I'm happy for you that your job and housing situation worked out well though! Have fun decorating it and making it your space!
