This is ... What I want to be When I Grow up

First up, thanks to Miss Sharon for being so lovely as to let me pick this week. I also have to say that I think no-one will put it quite as eloquently as Miss Curly pops. More players over at Three Buttons.

You would think if I picked this week's theme I would have an inbuilt witty post, when I am in fact struggling, though I have loved reading everyones responses so far and I hope that it was an interesting one. I found it really interesting that so many followed the aspirations of their youth in some form. I on the other hand was always one that never had an idea of what or where I wanted to be. At the end of high school it was a film-making revolutionary and then I realised that at some stage I wanted to be able to afford to eat. Then came interior design, which one day I would love to finish, but a really hard industry to get into. Finally it dawned on me I think what I really would like to be is stay at home mum to my beautiful babies, with my dream of just one more little one with a day or 2 to myself to keep sewing. If anyone chose a doctor please let me know as my Hubby may need one after he reads this!
I can't believe how much creativity I had inside (Not that I am saying I am amazing). Ideas are coming all because I just decided to listen for once. That is so what I want to be!!
Speaking of which here is the latest custom dress that I have done. I love this fabric and have a box pleat dress coming in it. As you can see my model is back and they are all slowly on the mend, thanks to all for your well wishes.

Yes! I couldn't agree more with what you have said. It's so great to find/rediscover your creativity. It's an important part of me that I too often ignore.... BTW Just love that dress!

Thanks for the great theme - really got me thinking and re-focused. It's wonderful to know that you are doing what you really want to be doing and I think part of the fun comes from the journey :-)
