My Story

Hi! I’m Shiella, the author of Tidying My Tiny Space. Currently, I’m an overjoyed SAHM to 3 wonderful children – 2 boys and a girl.

A little bit about my background…

I started teaching as a private and group tutor more than a decade ago, way before I entered university, before I finally decide to pursue my dreams to teach in schools. For the past 7 years, I taught in a secondary school (2 years in a primary school). Therefore, it is not a surprise how this became an occupational hazard in my household – I am obsessed with organising and keeping a schedule and I love educating my kids in fun ways.

I tied the knot with the most compassionate, genuine and empathetic man I’ve ever met in 2014. We had our first child the following year. From then on, our lives took a 180 degree turn. Things that were important to us no longer became a priority and everything that we did, we had to put a cute little human into consideration. Over a span of 5 years, we were blessed with one child after another. This isn’t a surprise as I love children and would want to have a dozen of them, if I could. ❤️

I’ve journeyed through my life as a FTWM, a PTWM and now a SAHM. I’ve experienced each phase with plenty of ups and downs. Hence, I feel like I’ve so much to share (other than children’s worksheets! 😆) and I needed a platform to do just that. And that is exactly how I started this blogas a space to share my journey as a SAHM while using my experience as a teacher to educate my children and run my household – effectively AND happily! By (virtually 😀) taking you into my space (a HDB BTO), I hope to inspire and motivate you to manage your household well and create a happy home by having an organised and tidy space, educating your children well, having an abundance of self-care and being able to personally achieve your dreams while you’re at it!

Currently, I am working on expanding my printables library for everyone, especially mummies, to be able to use to help run their daily lives with ease. This library will consist of all things which I personally use and find useful – learning activities with my children, trackers for my daily routines and planners to keep my life organised. I will also be creating more blog posts containing nuggets of gold information intended to help you with your child’s education, organising your home and more. If you’re as excited as I am and would like to go through this precious parenthood journey with me, subscribe to my email list below! I would love to have you! Meanwhile, feel free to connect with me through my socials below. I like to only share things that are of value there (my idea of how we should treat our children, how to keep things together at home, how to take care of ourselves etc.). See you there! 💗

Always cheering you on,

Shiella A.

P.S. I craft my posts at night after the kids go to bed, while breastfeeding my baby or during pockets of time in the day. Mostly in a rush. Every post in this blog is personally written by me. Therefore, please pardon me if you were to find errors (grammatical, punctuation etc.) or you find me repeating certain things like a broken record. 😆

Whether you are a full-time working mum, a stay-at-home mum, a mum-to-be, a parent or anyone with kids in your household, I would love to connect with you! Follow me on IG @tidyingmytinyspace or email me at

I also run a small side hustle. If you are interested in gifting personalised gift sets for your loved ones, check out:
