20% DISCOUNT ON MY ETSY ORGANISING CHAOS SHOP!!!

The last week of school has finally arrived! These last weeks have felt so long but they are finally here.
This morning I made my last school lunch for this academic year. It is a ridiculous (and a bit tragic) how great it made me feel. We are so ready for the holidays, a far less regimented life.

As soon as the boys finish school tomorrow at noon, we are driving down to West Cork, one of the most beautiful parts of the country. We have rented a house with some friends in the Bere Peninsula. We were there for the weekend and it is truly breathtaking, I can’t wait to go back!

As it tends to happen in this remote areas, internet coverage is not all that regular, which is a great excuse to turn off all electrical devises and really kick back and relax and enjoy quality time with friends and family.

But before I fall off the grid, I wanted to leave you with a discount to use on my ETSY SHOP. Use code SUMMER20 to get a 20% DISCOUNT on any of the Notice Boards on my ETSY SHOP and I will post your purchase to you as soon as I am back next week.

GET ORGANIZED WITH BUTTONS

You must all know by now that I like boards, any type of notice boards.

I think they are a wonderful way of getting papers organized, putting things away, displaying photos and keepsakes and getting rid of the dreaded pile of paper at the end of the kitchen counter.

Although some notice boards are lovely and they look even better displaying photos and souvenirs, others can look not so attractive displaying bills, school notices and reminders. I find cork notice boards the ugly duckling of message boards so I have been looking for ways to beautify them (too much time in my hands??? – maybe!)
Organising Chaos - Get organized with buttons
This simple project will make your cork board look a hundred times better, it will add more color, more style and it will be more presentable. All these while up-cycling all those random buttons that you have lying around and all for the price of a small tub of glue and some push pins – are you sold yet? Let’s get cracking!

Now, again, this is one of the very complicated projects that if you loose concentration or you take a call half way through the project you might not be able to continue. I have broken it down in small steps so it is easier to follow. Pay attention:

Step 1 – Get the glue, the push pins and the buttons

Step 2 – Put the button upside down, put some glue on it and rest the push pin on top – Let it dry

Step 3 – Use your new pretty pins on your cork board

If you have managed to follow this complicated procedure, I hope you are smiling and admiring your Friday project.

WEEKLY INSPIRATION

Hi lovely people, I hope you have had a fabulous weekend. Mine was pretty nice despite the nasty tummy bug that decided to visit me, so I didn’t manage to share my weekly inspiration with you today, but don’t worry, I am making up for it today.

Las week, adding my boards to my Etsy shop took extra long, not because there was anything wrong with the website, quite the opposite, the website is highly efficient and it is full of gorgeous and very inspiring things. I love that Etsy is one shop for all international handmade sellers, it is such a beautiful community!

I love these arrows. I must get these arrows. They match my tattoos and my kid’s weapons

These crochet floor cushions are just so pretty, They are also on my wish list for my birthday or Christmas, I can wait.

I don’t really use jewellery but I would buy some just to use this beautuful Jewellery plate

As for this Storm Trooper Wall Art, we can safely say that there would be discussions as to what room would get to host it!

I love the style and pattern in this clutch. This I might have to get for myself very very soon!

Have a great day. Be isnpired!
