mmm. one big white wall to put up my current ideas, with a table facing it, connecting to the table in an 'L' will be the table with my computer and sewing machine and typewriter & some shelves. this will be wallpapered (also maybe a window) a brown/orange/yellow/cream pattern. the other two walls will be solid brown and orange, with a big white stripe going through the brown one that curves at the end and goes into the ground. this will hold picture frames and a small old bookcase in that stripe. the orange wall will have the door and storage space with supplies on it.
the desk will be wooden, old, beautiful. the chair will be an armchair with wheels, super comfy. there may be a small couch under the white stripe on the brown wall. and there would always be a quilt made by my mum in there.
i watched 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' tonight.
i'm not a massive Brad Pitt fan, and old southern accents aren't my favourite, but for some reason, this film intoxicated me.
probably the story- i loved the idea of him being born an old man and growing younger.
and i love a girl with red hair.
my dad said it reminded him of Forest Gump, but it made me want to go read Time Traveler's Wife again and again and again.
my favourite part was when they 'lived on that mattress' in their little 70's duplex...
it reminded me of pictures of my mum&dad when they were newly weds. starting a new life with just a mattress and a lot of love and big dreams.
it's so magical.
i get so excited about life sometimes. every stage.
i definitely have a few chapters before this. but maybe one day.
right now i am enjoying this strange transition period where nothing is solid and everything is going from old to new and it's slightly scary but very exciting. sometimes it feels so slow! when will i finally leave!?! and other times it goes so fast. so i'm trying to remind myself that "the present now will later be past" (Bob Dylan) and that little impatient girl inside of me needs to take a breath of that sweet summer air, and relax a little bit. these moments are precious. and there is a time for everything.
i think i'm going to beg my dad to teach me Tai Chi.
[ramble over. :D]
the last few days i've been sitting in my exhibition space (when i say 'my' exhibition space, i mean 'my spot' in the sixth form exhibition at school), and talking to people and selling some of my books!
i plan to take some more (better!) photos tomorrow, but here is a peek;
i'm planning another etsy update for this weekend sometime, and some of those books will be going up.
i'm really pleased with how they turned out (all handmade&bound!), and i got some great feedback this week on them.
there are still plenty of spots on my Online Class available. (remember, even if you're not going to be here for that week, the tutorials and tips will be e-mailed to you in a document- and you can always ask me questions via e-mail)
what are your dreams about life changes? are you where you dreamed you would be?
