Yesterday I spent the day cleaning the whole house, including my fiber room which I have created for myself out of a small closet/storage room. I needed a space for all of my fiber things and wheel, and most importantly I think I needed a special designated space for my fiber and yarn, to organize my thoughts, and grow the business. As of late it had become just another place to throw things that "I would get to later". Such a common excuse, right? But it had gotten out of hand, boxes for future projects and things to be mailed, and unorganized fibery things. I took time last night and cleaned it all out and organized it to make a usable space for myself. And not just a usable space but an enjoyable space.
I found that when I first created the fiber room, I was spending most of my down time out in the living room with my husband. I wasn't really okay with hanging out in a tiny room all alone in the back of the apartment, which defeated its purpose. So I am looking forward now that I have taken the time to organize and make it a new space, to really enjoy the space and make it mine. As well as be okay spending time alone with my thoughts about my yarn and business, and meditating with spinning. I am really hoping to make the room my quiet space, a special place for Emily. I am planning to start doing morning yoga in this room as well. Again, another way of creating the space to be a happy calm escape. whether I'm diving into self care or yarn creating. I added some nice touches like the hanger on the wall to display some of my yarn on, and I did some treasure hunting at my mother-in-laws and found this adorable copper bowl and it is now supporting some lovely green life to brighten up the space.
Crossed fingers for many wonderful moments spent spinning, planning or just breathing in this happy new space.
