Mum & Dad, I'm sorry...

I have been feeling quite guilty ever since I wrote my 'about me' section for the website.  I state 'Rowan was born in June 1982, to possibly the least creative two parents in the UK', and it's not strictly true. They were creative for me, just not with me.  Don't call Childline. I wasn't neglected in the slightest.

Anyway. My Dad made a farm for me one year. It had painted fields and a house, and these wooden shapes that resembled blob-like sheep and blocks painted yellow that were supposed to be hay-stacks.

My Mum was pretty good at sewing and made matching dresses for her, me and my doll. Yes we all went out together like that... but I can't find the photo anywhere.  Now, that's the kinda thing I'll do when I have babies.

For now, here's me in the bridesmaid dress my Mum made for me for my brother's wedding!



I should probably add the my Grandma (THE Grandma) did the flower arranging and made the head band.

This week I have been mainly looking at vintage wedding dresses, even though I don't have (nor want) a boyfriend.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend! It's been bleedin' freezing here!

It wasn't just your gandmother that made you creative. You will realize it is a combination or good, bad, interesting, and things you remember that have made you creative. You would be who you are.

Sincerely,
