Sorry for the lack of updates during the second half of the year. phew
I had to give my maximum effort to make this goal a reality before 2018 ends.
Rainbowholic Studio is no longer a dream but a real space where I can freely create content, hold workshops / meet-ups, and fulfill orders for rainbowholic-shop.com.
I used to do everything in this small Japanese apartment… ;_; I was so inspired to work extra hard so that I can finally spend a happier self-care time here in my apato (apartment) without seeing “work” everywhere (packing supplies / boxes), lol.
It wasn’t easy and it was such an “uncomfortable” journey for me to pursue as I juggle many jobs ( teacher / entrepreneur / stationery store / custom kawaii tokyo tour guide ) but I’m so glad everything has fallen into place. ;_;
I had to set aside a good amount of money every month to be able to afford the “heavy” first month of payments. My savings made it just in time, lol!
If you haven’t watched my #ThankYouPatrons / patreon journey video, please do! ^^
(Note lol: Couch / other displays not mine. This was when we were checking apartment options (it took a month!!)
From this… (stamping postcards at a kombini with my bestfriend ) ….
… to this.
I cannot believe I won’t feel frustrated about space anymore!!! ;___;
( The room above will be for content creation. )
This room will serve as my mini office / packing area for Rainbowholic Shop / patreon rewards! I have a new business venture with friends (Chichi / Kaye) & will reveal everything after setting up the studio for faster processing! ^^
The empty studio tour video will be up anytime this December and it’s going to be a youtube series (STUDIO VLOG – the kind of vlog that I wanna do regularly lol because #iloveworking). Still saving up for the furniture needed to make this a tidy / organized office space haha! Excited to go to IKEA / Nitori / Jumble Store / recycle shops tbh, lol.
More photos later. I haven’t been back there yet since the first day of renting will start this December 1st!
Thank you to my readers, subscribers, long-time supporters, patrons, for helping me to be where I am today. Everyday is still challenging as ever but I don’t feel so alone in this journey because I have so many cheerleaders backing me up whenever I’d feel that the world is testing me in many ways.
Starting a patreon and focusing my energy on it contributed a lot. I took 2 social media breaks this year and currently in one… it works!!
I’m super excited to share what kind of content & what projects I will be working on with #rainbowholicstudio.
Please look forward to the workshops that will be available during Spring season. I’ve hired 2 lovely people to work with me (to process / help me shoot + list new items / update my shop).
Wanna make workshops / events soon but I have to spice up the place first, haha! Please wait~!
Until the next update,
