what is this?

I am 34 years old and my life is running away from me, like water down a greasy plughole. I thought I would be so much more by now.

If you want your life to change you need to do, not just think! So here I start, documenting the things that move me. The theory is this will focus my curiosity and push growth and development. That’s what we are all striving for right – to be our best selves. Totally self centred and narcissistic, but if you aren’t looking out for yourself then no one is looking out for you. And to be totally honest I think its a waste of time being ‘holier that thou’. Being a good person should be the baseline of course, but you can’t really help anyone else if you’re a mess. You shouldn’t go around fixing everyone else when really you should be confronting the steaming pile of crap that is your own life!

When I say I want to be more, I actually want to make things – fashion, art, crafts – I want to create beautiful functional things and I want people to admire them and love them. This is my moodboard, my research; and hopefully a resource. I know that my passions are shared by others, so I want to share with the world – and to put myself out there, try to prove to myself that I can take it all from dreamland into the real world.

Wish me luck!
