25.11.15//There were no computers free in the library so this is where I’ll be spending the afternoon. I changed my desk set up a little bit and I’m really happy with my new corkboard. Time to finish the last presentation I’ll do before Christmasbreak! Only three weeks to go!
After seeing a post about a university that has a deity that students pray to, it made me think about Phichit and Yuuri accidentally starting an ice skating religion among the Detroit rink skaters.
Like, Phichit takes one of Yuuri’s posters of Victor and they make a large corkboard shrine where skaters can pin their prayers on post-it notes to Lord Victor to grant them luck on their jumps. Some even bring offerings of food.
Yuuri becomes the low-key shrine keeper and most devout follower of this religion the more compeitions he wins.
Later when Yuuri marries Victor, his poster joins the shrine as the second god of their religion.
Basically, its a big meme that spirals out of control.
It’s been a long time since I planned to fill up the blank wall I have on top of my bed so I’m really happy because I finally got the courage to do this!
I bought a cork board that was too small for my wall so I decided to print some photos I took back then to fill up the empty space. I feel so happy whenever i look at it! And yes, sometimes I do dream of being an astronaut because you never know, my destiny might be someone from outer space! I believe that the possibilities are endless (crazy crazy crazy).
SO HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS I DID:
1. The cork board didn’t have a frame with it so I decided to make my own. I was able to find a really nice floral-patterned paper at DAISO (Japanese store) and I used it for the borders of my board. All you need are some scissors and tape and you’re good to go! NOTE: Do not use paste or glue when sticking things onto your cork board! Just use tape so you could still remove stuff when you feel like changing how your cork board looks!
2. I was finally able to put into use all the photobooth pictures I got from my friends’ parties! I cut them out and neatly pasted them on my board. Picking out the best wacky photos was the fun part!
3. And because I wanted to add my own touch to the board, I grabbed my pen and drew lines on it to make it look like a grid board. I added some dashed lines to finish it off. Talk about perseverance!! HAHA, my neck and back was hurting so much after that. Another option you could do is wrap your cork board with a really nice patterned cloth using thumbtacks.
4. Finally I placed photos I took (which I think are pretty, hehe) around the board for maximum inspiration! I just used tape so they’re not permanent! Remember: Always use tape. Just tape.
1. If you have a big corkboard, you could actually try to divide it into sections. Let’s say you could have one corner for pictures, one corner for design inspirations/pegs (if you’re into design like me! HAHA), another one for to-do reminders, and one for your favorite quotes.
2, Your board doesn’t have to be that organised! Honestly, the best cork boards I’ve seen are those that are so random and messy but at the same time, full of hidden treasures!
3. You can also add in a calendar which you can make on your own or you could find a template on the net! I didn’t have a calendar for this one because I already have one on my other cork board (which is at my desk).
So that’s about it! Show me a picture of your cork board or inspiration wall! I would love to see it :)))
[ 5.1.16 ] and here is my lovely corkboard! it’s not super decorated since I just wanted to keep it nice and simple 🌸 it currently has my two timetables, some photos from my overseas trips last year and some quotes! school is already tough from the start, so I may not be posting that much 😨
Put up a cork-board/whiteboard up next to my Desk Pad Planner and it’s just what I needed to make my desk feel cosy. I also cut up some branches and but them in this jar to add some green. I have made sure to have less things on my desk but also implemented big objects to fill the space up.
Made this the other day for my friends birthday! Super easy! Just take a big sheet of cork board, draw out your outline and use a penknife to cut it out (doesn’t have to be a cloud!) then I used a sample chalk paint I picked up from the nearest DIY store to create the stripes! Add a few photos and you’ve got a cute personalised present!
