It’s been a while since I blogged on here. Too long to be honest. My silence began during my pregnancy with the gorgeous Georgia and I began preparing for life with two children. I can honestly say that during that time; through those sleepless nights, the frantic days as my eldest started nursery and then school, Dollies Daydream and my blog has always been at the back of my mind.
You see, there have been two ambitions of mine that I have had since being small; to be a mother and to live a creative life. It is true that in my other life I teach Psychology. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being in the classroom but my heart has always pulled me back to creative activities.
I haven’t always enjoyed every creative endeavour I have pursued. In fact, during my A level Art course, I began to dislike art and decided against undertaking a degree in Art as a result of my experiences with a couple of teachers.
During the years that followed, I rejected all I had been taught and moved into teaching. It was only after the birth of my eldest that I began to crave the act of creating – whether it be knitting, drawing, sewing or baking, I couldn’t get enough of it. Although my experience has not been the same following Georgia’s arrival, I have decided I cannot ignore that nagging voice inside my head to craft.
