As you probably can see on the pictures my barbie's did not look like the average barbie. At first I had a period when I wanted to become a hairdressers, hence why most of them have very short hair:-) But the longest period of my childhood I wanted to become a designer. I used to sit with the ellos catalogue and look at outfits that I liked and then I sewed them for my barbie's. Sometimes with the help of my mother but later all by myself (which you probably can see)
I think I loved making new clothes for them more than actually playing with them. This is also the same period when I learned to knit. The first sweater I ever knitted was for my barbie, it was in two shades of pink with a incorporated gold thread. I loved it and wished I could make one for myself!I looked and looked but I could not find it now!
So, what I did, then 14 years ago is not much different from what I do now?! I remember getting this overwhelming urge to make something and I'll rush down in the basement to sew something for the barbie's and after a couple of hours I had I good feling again and cold go on with the rest of the day. I'm still creative and I still have these urges to make something. This is probably something that I'll have all my life and that comforts me... Being creative is who I am, and by the looks of it, who I have always been.
This has been a long and kind of philosophical post, hope you could make something out of it:-)
Have a good day!
