Random Thoughts.


This is my current favorite corner in my little house. Yesterday, I found this magnetic blackboard at Wilcon's. The wooden frames were painted in beautiful pale white. But I wanted it super white like everything else in my house, so I painted it last night. Yes, I do my painting at night because I have work during the day, which I also do not get to finish because I keep on daydreaming about my house decorating project. This is happy-crazy!

. . . . .

I have thrown and given away more than half of what I own -- that includes all my magazines, DVD collection, and my paintings. It's not very easy to let go, but the moment you do, it feels very liberating. I feel like I live in a new house now -- I have more breathing space.

. . . . .

I found so many things I thought I lost from cleaning up and organizing. Like that photocopy of the cheque Kris Aquino paid me when she bought accessories from me. Brought back happy memories of my accessories-making days. I also found my Paris & Switzerland pictures! I thought I lost them forever.

. . . . .

The entire process of purging and organizing has taught me that I can live with the basics, with what is essential, with what truly matters.

Pin It!
