🌼 Inspiration Board + Workspace Tour! 🌼

Hey guys! I know my blog posts are always super long, so here’s a lighter, short one. :)

IMG_1284

Today, I’d like to give you a short tour around my tiny workspace!

IMG_5286

It looks really neat here but it doesn’t really stay this way. haha

By the way, the photos in this post were not taken in the same day, so you might notice some stuff changing location. I just move things around a lot without noticing (i.e. I tend to misplace stuff / forget to put them back where I took them from (γ‚œβ–½γ‚œ;))

🌈  Inspiration Board  🌈

I’m going to show you my inspiration board (which I keep on changing). ( οΎŸβˆ€ ゚)

A board filled with some of my favorite things and stuff/art/people that inspire me. :)

I really need to add more things to this board to update it though! But in the meantime, here’s a close-up look at my current inspo board! β™₯

🌈  Desk Tour  🌈

Just a few pictures of what I normally have on my desk.

Recently I got a new pen organizer, so it replaced these cute cans. *_*

IMG_4012

Pile of plush that just keeps on..piling up (γ‚œβ–½γ‚œ;)

IMG_5310

Some of my books and magazines.

IMG_5304

More plush hahaha

IMG_5320

My tiny Totoro shrine :)) and a framed photo of myself LOL

IMGP0074

My 4-year-old laptop. :) I remember choosing this because it can handle video games. 8)

As you can see, I don’t really have much space for painting on his desk. ( οΎŸβˆ€ ゚) I have another smaller portable table which I use when I’m painting or drawing on paper or eating lunch/dinner in front of my laptop haha.

Desk Update ~~~

IMGP0386

Here’s the pen organizer I mentioned earlier!

These crocheted coasters are great for two things: iced coffee, and my water jar whenever I watercolor. I use the darker one for wiping my brush when there’s too much water in it. :)

IMGP0387

Francis gave me this cute sticker from B-Side Label :D

IMGP0390

I also have this scented candle that I really love. Also, a small jar of dried flowers from our garden. :)

🌈  Workspace Tour 🌈

Here’s the rest of the space~

IMGP0075

On the right side of my desk is a space for some of my art materials, journaling materials, paper supplies, and one of my 2 printers. I used to have just the Epson one but I felt like I needed to have a CISS Canon Pixma printer too because of its borderless printing function, so I saved up for it. It’s not one of the higher-tier Pixma printers though, it’s one of the cheaper ones but it does the job well!

IMGP0073

This photo was taken just after the GirlsGirlsGirls exhibit, hence all the paint I haven’t put away yet.

IMGP0069

The space on the lower portion of this cabinet is for my journaling materials / sticker collection. I’ll show them to you in a different post! :)

IMG_5312

Some drawing pads~ and spot my chunky hobonichi! haha

IMGP0070

Pens, pencils, markers, paint tubes, etc etc etc

IMG_5318

Wow I really need to organize these

IMGP0072

On the left side are my Epson printer and scanner (covered with pink fabric), paint drawers, and a space where I stash all my old drawings.

Just above my inspiration board is a small cabinet filled with more plushies, toys, and collectibles. These are the contents:

IMG_5306

Haha I have this Japanese piggy bank collection (I don’t know what it’s called but I have like 5 of them)

IMG_5307

A portion of my Kiiroitori collection given to me by friends, mostly by Francis. :))

IMG_5305

Another piggy bank! And yes, I put coins in all of them. *_*

IMG_5315

Last but not the least, this very cute painting Kaye made for me. <3

Update ~~~

Recently, I made another board (it’s more of a rack, actually). Here’s how it looks:

IMGP0406_

It’s another inspiration board(rack!) composed of artworks that I’m so lucky to receive from awesome people~ ;A; β™₯ β™₯ β™₯

IMGP0408_

A. Gift art given to me last Creators Market by @kiwiichloe! ;A; β™₯ B. From Armaine, C. From Rian, D. From Kate, E. From Alex, F. Toast sticker from Francis lol, G. Postcard from Keeshia, H. Postcard from Aian, I. Girls Girls Girls Postcard from our exhibit. β™₯

I’m currently making another inspiration rack because I want to display all the artworks I’ve received in the past too! ((o(Β΄βˆ€ο½€)o))

I do realize that my space is too small for all of my things. #hoarderproblems #buraralife My mom always jokes that if she lights a match inside my room, my workspace will instantly catch fire because of all the clutter LOL. I have tons of stuff that I can’t display because I don’t have space for them anymore, and because they’re stored away, I forget that I have them. (γ‚œ-γ‚œ;)

But I’m already very thankful for this space!Β ( ᡘ α΅• ᡘ ⁎) It’s my tiny area in the house and so far I’ve been able to do anything I want with it. (I’m planning to put more live plants in it, a small bookshelf, and fairy lights!) Also, because it’s small, everything’s literally within my reach hahaha.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Cheers, Chichi β™₯
