The topic for today is things that inspire me! There are so many things in the universe that fill me with enthusiasm and motivation and my mind is a *constant* kaleidoscope thinking of them all~ My teachers used to tell my parents that I was way too detached and spent too much time in my head daydreaming, almost like in another world! And they weren’t wrong! I feel drawn to fantastical worlds and feel like I’m in the process of creating one of my own~ which was the point of this blog!
I love bright rainbows, glitter, pink houses, fantasy video games, walking through plush green forests, big poofy frilly dresses, kawaii, kitschy collectables, Lolita fashion, pompoms and beads and buttons, yarn, big-eyed Blythe dolls, 80s and 90s toys, nostalgia, sugary sweets (especially that too many sweets hyper feeling!), history, animals, and bouncy positivity!
Life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, but it can be most of the time! 🙂 I use my Pinterest here to inspire me when times get tough as it reminds me who I really am so check it out if you want a dose of bright sugary kitschy cuteness!
Outside my window is ridiculously, no good, oh so freezing, why do I live here – COLD!!! Everybody is daydreaming about getting away to a hot sandy beach far far away to escape the cold. Me, I’m not such a big fan of hot either – but a trip to a magical land of CANDY is much more my thing!
One of my favourite artists and a big sweet-toothed inspiration of mine is the installation artist PIP AND POP. Pip and Pop (also known as Australian artist Tanya Schultz) creates entire worlds filled with candy, sparkly rainbow sugar, and complete and utter HAPPINESS that transport you back to the carefree days of your childhood when your teeth just ACHED from FAR TOO MANY SWEETS and there was endless possibility!
You can’t help but wanting to build a little house on the foot of a towering glittering sugar sweet mountain! Let’s GO!
I spent New Years Eve enjoying a bunch of leftover Christmas treats, making a quick colourful 2019 headband, and chasing after my cat who kept stealing the pompoms!
I had so much fun, but ended up falling asleep at 9 – oops!!! I was trying to stay up, and I was even going to set an alarm just in case I fell asleep but then fell asleep before I could do THAT! Hahaha!
I ended up watching fireworks this morning (on Youtube ;))!
My one big goal for this year is to CREATE EVERY SINGLE DAY! Even if it’s just a little bit of something. I dream of having a magical house full to the brim with colour, fabrics, knitted things, craft projects, and the constant smell of fresh baked goodies ~ my own enchanted little paradise!! And then post my creations every day (or so) here on this blog! I hope this challenge will allow me to be productive and constantly learn new skills!
I also just want to be HAPPY this year, fight through my anxiety, be healthy, and as bright and unique as can possibly be!
2018 was my absolutely best year ever, and 2019 is guaranteed to be EVEN BETTER! Can’t wait to enjoy it with you all! xoxo
