DIY moodboard and exciting video news

Today I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve been brave enough to do something that scares me and I’ve been putting off for ages – I’ve launched my very own brand new YouTube channel!

Impractical, frequently piled high with coats, shoes, bags and other assorted items, this area definitely needed some serious attention, and so was perfect fodder for the storage challenge set by the Tots100 Home Club in association with Homebase.
