Hobonichi Flipthrough + June Small Goals + #DCtoJapan

Hi かわいい + creative family!

It’s time to set some goals & intentions for June.

Also, it’s my birthday month and really excited to share what I’ve decided to tackle this month.

But first, may I ask for your prayers and well wishes. I just learned that my dad is battling cancer.

Thankfully, I am keeping up with basic work and things. And though I understand impermanence, suffering and ultimately death, I’m having an extremely hard time grasping everything. It’s just … hard.

So please send prayers and boosters of happy thoughts to the universe on my (and my family’s) behalf.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to grasp my happy like a big girl soon enough.

Arigatou and enjoy ~

🌸ほぼ日 Flip-through + #INKPLAY Highlights

This month’s flip through is shares of my pages & thoughts from my recent Japan trip.

🌸May Small Goals + Events

Please forgive me.

A lot of things have not been done and some things have been tabled, thanks to a burst of organisation inspiration compliments of Japan ~


❌Design Nakayoshi Friends (kawaii + otaku) art merch

❌Organize original character profile sheets

❌Print Sakura Nakayoshi friends current art

I found an easier, less intense way to organize my OC’s and available art 😬

✨Big Blog Give-a-Way Follow-up

❌Must complete the tasks so I can past GO!

I’ve completed the tasks but decided to have some merch to include as well. So this is on hold ~

✨Social Media Growth

ipkuekawaii, personal brand

❌Blog | now @ 13K → 14K
