Mini Workspace Tour Intro:

I thought it would be fun to give you a peak into my workspace. So let me show you some of what I see on a regular basis as I’m working on personal projects.  I plan on doing a full workspace tour via my Youtube channel so I don’t want to show too much. Tell me in the comments bellow if that is something you’d be interested in seeing.

Anyway, on to the mini tour. My desk is a little messy but it’s mostly pens, markers and pencils so it still looks pretty cool. All the boring clutter and mess is pushed off to the side so I can pretended that I’m super organized. I’m definitely one of those people whos productivity is effected by their workspace. Because of that I keep a tidy working area, or push any mess out of the way. Out of sight, out of mind! lol.

I do enjoy some good organization and keeping things clean, but It can be a bit hard when working in a small space with a lot of stuff. Basically, I have way too much stuff, specifically art supplies and packaging stuff.. UGH!!

 

Whats on my desk:

As for what I keep on my desk, the obvious would be my Copic markers and writing utensils. I try to keep the space open so it’s easier for me to use when drawing or working on my laptop. I do have a corkboard and some white boards but I’m still trying to figure out the best usage for them.

In addition to the practical, I like to keep some sentimental knick-knacks around. There is a vase filled with sand and sea shells from my trip to Brazil along with a carousel horse figurine that my father gave me. A lovely tea and teapot set I got for my birthday, and a honey bare tin can I stole from my mother.  Also I have the Lord of the Rings Trilogy books from my fathers childhood next to my grandmother’s bible.

All of the things make me happy in one way or another, reminding me of people that I love and memories that make me smile. I’m not a religious person, but the bible meant so much to my grandmother. My father used to read me the Lord of the rings books as a child, and a good friend gave me the tea pot.

It’s funny how simple objects can have strong meanings that mean so much more than the objects themselves. Anyway, that’s enough of that! Hope you enjoyed this mini workspace tour along with the memory lane tangent that followed. Lol. If you did be sure to subscribe to my newsletter, and follow the blog via bloglovin!

Samantha’s First Kiss – Valentines:

It’s Valentines! The time of year when love is in the air. When chocolates, jewelry and stuffed teddy bears are plentiful. This year on the new Love, Teacup Kisses blog I wanted to share an old image. I did this drawing in 2014 during Inktober. It was the first year I did inktober and the year that made me love it.

I focused many of the drawings around a witch character named Samantha. Inktober that year showcased her child hood, her teenage years, her family and her adulthood. This particular drawing was Samantha’s first kiss. Their is something so charming about ones first kiss. The awkward attempt at romance from two totally unaware young individuals. Childhood romance being explored with a single kiss is exciting.

Often when your first kiss is experience at a young age you are unaware of what to expect. Bashful and shy towards the other person. A quick peck is all you can think to do. All you are willing to do. It’s perfect in it’s imperfections. Something so quick somehow means so much.

My First Kiss:

When I was in first or second grade I had a crush on this kid Skyler. We didn’t interact much but my friends new that I thought he was so dreamy. One day, our friends got the bright idea to bring us together on the playground. His friends egged him on to kiss me, and my friends egged me on to kiss him back. They pushed us towards each other and we resisted.

I secretly hoped that he would do it, but fought back to hide my desire. Our friends being there definitely made it awkward. Eventually the bell rang and we were saved. Our friends took off to their class rooms but we stayed behind momentarily. I think the world stopped for a second, and then he leaned in and kissed me.

I can’t remember if it was on the lips or the cheek, but I remembered that it was perfect. A moment I will never forget.

This Year:

This year I am single, no crushes or love interests to spend the holiday with. Most of the time I’m happy to be single, prefer it even. But romantic holidays can leave me wanting. So this year I hope to spend the holiday cozy in a bubble bath reading a good book and falling in love with life. I hope you have a wonderful Valentines day and let me know in the comments bellow what you’re doing.

 

Until Next time,
