This morning I had a strange but good dream...
I dreamt I was still in college, and I was still living in the mountains (where I lived when I was in college, with my parents) and I had a range to design and complete for the end of year. Then suddenly, I had another one to complete or I would fail my whole three years of study. I was panicking!
So I had two ranges (or collections) I needed to complete, and I needed to catch the train into the city, to find fabric and trims for all designs in each range. I went to the local train station, and I kept on missing the trains...
then I woke up. I realised, "oh thank goodness I am not in college any more!". Then I realised, "I don't HAVE TO design any ranges any more." I design my ranges because I LOVE doing it, and you know what the best feel was? Waking up just that little bit further and realising I have a whole room of fabric and trims just waiting to be used!
I guess this dream couldn't have come at a better time really. I was feeling extremely worn out, and a little disenchanted, but the relief of waking up and realising that I get to create my designs when I want to, rather than when I have to has made me so happy!
So I am back into thinking of some new ideas, and I actually woke up at 5:30am because I was so happy!
So this posting will have no pictures today... I promise the next posting will. I don't usually write something quite so personal on here, but I guess it fits.
Wishing all other designers, artists and business people out there a dream that will help to inspire them!
