I wasn’t on planning on posting an updated mood board during Blogtober. However, recently when I was moving out my belongings for them to install the wood flooring I had to take down everything off my bulletin board which was the perfect time to rearrange my board. I’m someone who needs to be in a creative environment in order to be inspired. The items that I keep on my bulletin board are things that help me to stay inspired on days when I’m feeling unmotivated so it’s important to make this space bright and colorful. I’m my happiest when I’m surrounded by things that make me smile.
If you’ve seen my past boards then you’ll notice that they’re all somewhat similar which is why I thought it would be fun to add a theme to my board to match the time of the year. Of course, I still kept my usual style but I also added some autumn and a few Halloween pieces.
In the center of my board, I have my autumn bucket list. The coffee print and the ‘ I’m Falling For You’ print are notecards from Happy Mail. The DS print is from Vickisigh, one of my favorite illustrators. I also keep a polaroid garland on the side of my board.
I display my old MooeyAndFriends card as a memento of how far I’ve come and as motivation to keep going. Next to the card is a mini egg Smooshy Mushy keychain. Underneath the keychain, I have a cow candy skull that I crocheted a few years ago. I love to display my crochet pieces on my board. At the bottom, I keep an inspirational quote that I got from Laura.
On the top left corner, I have an Anna from Frozen Tsum Tsum strap and a Pastel Elixir tag. The D.VA print on the top left is also from Vickisigh, it sparkles! I currently have a granny square obsession so to be festive I crocheted an autumn colored granny square because.
Here I have another one of my Halloween pieces I made, a candy pumpkin cow. Next, I have a Chicago Bear keychain my mom got me from her last trip to Chicago (for those who didn’t know I have born and raised in Chicago). That Seoul keychain is from my friend Jenny. My dream is to visit South Korea so this is a reminder to not give up and keep fighting for my dream. I also have another Smooshy Mushy keychain. The Alice and Wonderland postcard is from a store at Walt Disney World. The crocheted 2018 champagne bottle is a pattern from Twinkie Chan, I make one every year.
That Pusheen candy corn keychain is currently resting on my board but I do plan on attaching her to my bag.
Lastly, strung across the bottom of my bulletin board is a crochet pumpkin bunting. I’m still not sure if they look more like pumpkins or peaches. haha
