I don't have a happy place… but I can certainly create one.
PROGRESS, my friends!!! PROGRESSSSS.
I am currently 78.2% complete on Project: Kalel's Happy Place, and I am feeling quite satisfied! …or should I say, happy? haha :P But yes! Things are comin' along!
So this is my desk area. I got the desk for $70 at a flea market, and painted it lilac. My computer is covered in crazy little kawaii stickers (which I justified doing because I chipped my computer screen during moving, *sad panda* but oh well, let's put a shit ton of stickers on it!!!!!). I use a cute little notepad as a mousepad, and I typically write some kind of inspirational message on it… since it's basically a fucking miracle if I get out of bed each day. Inspirational quotes are like my fuel; they just keep me going… hahaha. Then we also have a REALLY old antique lamp, which, actually doesn't even work- but I love it. It sits on top of my treasured Walt Disney biography. He is my ultimate idol… his work ethic is just insane. Then I also have some gel pens in a silver cup… a ridiculous My Melody calculator from Tokyo… my weekly to-do list… a Tiffany's box which I keep paperclips, etc… Then just some fashion books, stationary, knickknacks, markers, candle (my beloved Pineapple Creme Puff, OMGGGG)…
Oh and then there is Misa! My little alpaca. She's not a real Alpacasso. When I bought her, I was under the impression that she was… but she's a fraud. Still cute, and I love her… but I hate supporting companies who are ripping off other designers. BURN IN HELL!!!! hahaha, I'm so sweet. But anyway, she originally came wearing a tacky-ass leopard scarf, but I helped a girl out and cut that shit off and gave her a shiny mint bow.
My stool is a little too wide for the toddler-sized chair space that my desk provided me with… but it works. I got it from etsy and I loveeeeee it.
That's about it for my desk area. It sits in front of a window, so soon I will be hanging curtains behind it. But my curtains are a DIY project. I plan to do a video on them, but it will probably be awhile! There's just so much that I'm trying to get done right now. Today, I went and bought 60 yards of soft white fabric and am preparing to transform my room into a fort. I am VERY excited for this. Crossing my fingers that it works out.
