I’ve gravitated towards tidying up ever since I was a little girl. I actually enjoyed helping my friends declutter their rooms. Fast-forward to marriage and two kids though, and I was feeling overwhelmed by stuff and chores, and I was completely stressed out!
At my wit’s end, I searched for remedies, wanting to feel more content and more connected. Then I remembered a little A-frame I’d holidayed at -I had felt relaxed, present and happy in that unencumbered space. Epiphany: I could replicate those feelings I was after by adopting the ‘keep it simple’ solution!
Applying those principles to tackle my own home, I soon graduated to helping others. Combining those experiences with the skills I have mastered over years of clerical work and teaching high school, I have become a professional organizer.
Ebb and Spruce was born out of my desire to share the know-how of reducing the outer frenzy to foster peacefulness on the inside, without compromising aesthetics and authenticity.
