January planning.


It's that time of year again, Christmas feels like it was months away not weeks, and all is calm.
This is the time when I like to steal myself some moments to wrap my hands around a steaming hot cup of tea, look out at the garden, and think about the year ahead.
Last year after qualifying as an interior designer, I set out on a new venture, to change my path, and create something to be proud of!

I launched the first of my watercolour fabrics which I added to my vintage store, and then got extremely tired and spent the rest of the year just trying to find balance and ease up a bit.
Reflection is key to appreciate what has happened and evaluate the future.
I'm thinking of going back to college again this year, I love learning!
I'm actually thinking of going back full time to study art, the course includes print making, design and photography- all the areas I love.

As I said, I'm just pondering at the moment but, I've promised myself and my hubby that if we don't move this year, then I will go back to school in the September.
I'm nearly 40 and wish to continue my career in print and photography, and I hope to make this my final career (after spending the last 24yrs in the hair and beauty industry).

Has anyone else found a different path to the one they started, or have gone back to college/uni?
I'd love to hear your stories!

Hope everyone is having a good week!
