I dream in citrine, where blog props find new homes

This weeks Mumslist comes to you from Etsy, namely my new store!

Real Life

OK, there’s not much on there yet but I finally set up an Etsy store. I Dream in Citrine does two things, it allows me to feel better about the vintage treasures I’ve accumulated over the years and it helps me move them on to new owners as blog photo props, now I just need to put some time into stocking it!

Blog life

I’ve had to accept that between now and September I can’t blog daily, and I’m OK with that. I’m hitting a critical point in my working year and that can take over into home life if I’m not careful, so I need to free up a bit of diary space to see friends and arrange playdates and may need to use the odd spare hour for reading instead of blogging. Popular posts continue to be my crafty ones, including these washi tape ones



I’m browsing/reading the Calm Things blog at the moment; I’m in a busy place so I need calming influences in my life!

  1. Great idea for an Etsy shop, I love vintage too. I think props are important for successful blog images. I’m starting to see the end of my crazy busy spell, and I did find in the end it was blogging that had to give way.

  2. I love the direction you are taking your blog. And the etsy store is a great idea!

    OK right, so say I want a pocket in my notebook, what would I then put in it? Also are you faithful to one notebook at a time or do you dot around (like me – is this the reason I am so disorganised?!)?

    It’s great that you can take a step back from the blog to get your work done – the only reason I blog every day is because of that silly new years resolution. I won’t be doing it next year, I think it’s too much but I’m hoping the discipline of writing everyday will stay with me…! xxx
