Oh Lordy.

I LOVE  learning things. I love learning about myself, and I love learning about life.

Part of learning is forgetting things then remembering again.

I think it's fair to say that these last few months (years) have been really stressful and demanding, but I've started to see the light at the end off the tunnel. As my page says "THIS is my time to shine. Is it yours?"

Creativity never really leaves you but it does have times where it's less prevalent.

With my radio stuff, the alterations I've done for a few selected friends, and , of course my make up artistry, I've been plenty creative. But there's a few things I've managed to overlook. Well I have been kinda busy.

I've managed to overlook the fact that I have a whole house to turn into a vintage paradise.

And the great thing is that it's all mine. I answer to no one, I do it as I want it.

Sounds awfully grand and expensive but I think we've established that I'm pretty damned resourceful and can probably do the lot for £100. I have a lot of materials that I can use and adapt, you really can polish a poo. Makes for an interesting talking piece.

I just made a lovely but obsolete duvet cover into a set of curtains for my romantic vintage bedroom, but I did it out with necessity, not love. I've forgotten to love it.

So I picked up my bits and bobs crochet blanket I've been putting off, I moved some of my gorgeous furniture about and the project starts right now. I can't believe I've forgotten how much I love home design and how happy it makes me.

Wow, I am seriously lucky. Working towards the career of my dreams, my friends are the most amazing creatures in the world and I have a fabulous house in a fabulous place and it's mine, all mine. CREATIVITY IS MY HIRAETH.

Stay tuned for crochet, baking, LOADS of make up, dress making, interior design and general vintage junk. I am so excited I probably will not sleep tonight!

Damn you Kirsty's Vintage Home!
