I thought I’d kick this week off, by sharing the next instalment of my wardrobe declutter [ps… if you want to read the first one – pop over here]… Today I’m tackling my shoes.

More specifically… my boots.

Quite a few pairs of my boots were no longer fit for walking.

but they still hung around the wardrobe…

I think that boots are harder to throw away – considering the fact that the investment is so much greater than my other shoes… so I let them sit there, gathering dust [and the occasional snail trail… which I only realised when I actually took them out!!! Ugh].

But today… if they no longer rocked my world… they needed to go!

and I chucked 5 pairs of boots!

[Which made space for my really nice new pair 😉]

Anyway… back to the chucking [Or… onto the artwork]

The artwork begins…

I thought about the shoes [and the jersey and jeans that also needed to go… ps… I knew you would think that 5 pairs of boots is not 10 items… so I added another 5 items to the mix!!! Haha], and started off creating a scene where Dago [Nathan’s toy dragon] was trying the shoes on… but the scene wasn’t working for me…

See… it was a bit meh… [and Dago was showing too much cleavage!!!]

So then I started playing with some of the items… I thought that the boots would make a great tree… Then I thought about the fact that all this decluttering was making space for something new… so I created a birds nest in the tree…

and with a little editing afterwards…

Voila…
