When I need to be inspired I gather some of the little things that put a smile on my face. Here photographed are: postcards from Minitoko, a vintage kokeshi doll, sticker flakes, kitty doll, kawaii notepads from Japan and Korea, Essie nail polish (okay, I might've bought these just for photo props), and pink pom poms from my sister Hillary.
I might take a cue from the colors, the illustrations, the subjects, the lovely vibe they emit (^•^) Anyhow, they put my mind in a creative state. Maybe I'll do a mood/inspiration board. I haven't done those in a while....hmmm.
