Had I always known...?
When I look back at my childhood I guess I would say, "Yes, I've always known." Could it have been that Barbies were my favorite toy - not Barbie or Ken though - the dream house! I absolutely loved my barbie dream house and all the furniture (I still have it btw). While most kids my age were playing; my friend, Michelle, and I were selling something or thinking of selling something! Cherry tomatoes, lemonade, yard sales, hosting dance recitals - anything to be creative and inventive!
I came across this journal that I wrote in high school - take a look at number 3! When I found this I was REALLY shocked - I really hadn't remembered writing this! (Excuse all spelling errors, hehe)
In high school,when most of my peers wanted to be like the spice girls or other singers/actresses, I was obsessed with Martha Stewart! This explains number 1,2,4,5 and 6! Should I be embarrassed that these were my goals?? Let me clarify, since this list I have added many new goals- hehe!
All of the shopping trips to antique malls and little boutiques, with both my parents, could have had a great deal to do with my love for everything vintage and creative! At the time I HATED going to these stores! My dad would slam his brakes when he would see a sign for antiques, yard sales, thrift stores or any crafty boutiques! He still does this btw! I didn't have an appreciation for these shops at the time. Now I am just as guilty! I've thought about getting a sign for my car that says, "may make sudden stops for vintage goods!" Have you ever created a list of things you've wanted to accomplish?
I've added some great new etsy items, take a look!!
Thanks for stopping!
