So I finish my part-time job at the end of this week, and as I ponder on what to do next and start the joyous task of job hunting, I thought while there is no time like the present. I throw my heart and soul into Wooden Flamingo.

My aim? Well in-between job hunting, I want to bring you guys the best content possible, work on all the new product ideas that have been floating around my head the last year, and to try and do more then 1 craft show a year…maybe even 1 every couple of months…ooo I know pushing the boat out or what…

But I am excited about what’s to come, and hoping finance won’t be too much of a burden… But setting up a home office, which I have been planning to do for months, now has a deadline. So to pinterest I went to get some fun inspiration!!



From Because It’s Awesome blog this little office space looks so cute and colourful. I suppose I’m looking to create a space that inspires me, but obviously on a small budget. DIY is going to be a massive part of it..Our spare room is rather lacking space, especially as it has 2 built-in wardrobes in it, so clever storage and maximising the potential of the room is a must.

This is from Marie Mersier. And how well do these crates work as a backdrop and storage space for the office?? As much as I like a minimalistic space, that’s just not possible with the amount of clutter I own. A big sort out is going to happen soon, because my house is ripping at the seams.



This is a more accurate account of how my desk space might end up looking. I have a variety of postcards and odd bits that I have saved over the years that inspire me, and I’d love to make a mood board like this. This is from The Design Files. 



Bri Emery’s (from Design Love Fest)  old studio space is to die for, I love the light and block colour mixed with patterns. We know my love for plants, so I am sure they will find themselves introduced into the new office space. This is from The Glitter Guide. 


And interesting must have for an office space, it would be nice to tick off as many of these things, as they all look essential to me..But like I said, playing around with space is going to be interesting, plus it’s rented, so sadly I have to stick with magnolia, instead of a lovely white finish. This is from The Every Girl.



I couldn’t find the source for this, so as usual if you know drop me an email. I do love a gallery wall, I just want a space that I want to work in you know??

So it’s going to be an excitement month that’s for sure! If you work at home do feel free to link us to a picture of your home office, or let us into secrets of how to stay focused and motivated!!
