this must be the place








Lately I've been thinking a lot (more than usual) about being elsewhere, but I cleaned up my room this weekend and am feeling better about spending time where I am until the end of the summer. Even if I'm in a slump and haven't been writing or drawing or taking pictures I'm pleased with, at least I have my personal space as an extension of the way I want things to look. Since childhood I've been somewhat obsessed with surrounding myself with decoration and garnishes of any sort, and am completely guilty of taking comfort in my possessions (though to be fair we're talking cat masks and a staggering surplus of hair bows here, not luxury vehicles).

Nice blog you got here.. and your artifacts are dreamy! I identify with you on being little and getting lost in setting up your artifacts a certain way. I still do this as well. Surrounding yourself with your treasures, creating daydreams and a space to be inspired in.
