PLANTEREO: A Kawaii & Chic Convertible Self-watering Planter & Terrarium + Hobonichi Diary Updates!

Hi friends!

Last year, my college friend/Papercraft designer Rich moved to New York to study Industrial Design. She and her boyfriend (who is also my friend haha, hi Vic!!) designed this cleverly beautiful self-watering planter that can also be converted into a terrarium. It’s called Plantereo and they’re live on Kickstarter now! Of course, I’m one of their 100% supporters!

She also made this amazing Rainbowholic cake house design and Dancing Groot (Guardians of The Galaxy) papercraft! This girl is a CREATIVE genius, obviously! *_*

They have been growing a lot of plants in this easy-to-use planter. They shot a really cool timelapse of wheatgrass growing with just one refill of water. Check out Totoro’s surprise cameo in the end!

Plantereo can be used either as a terrarium, or a self-watering planter. The terrarium is for plants that thrive in humid environments.

Plantereo’s self-watering mode allows you to forget about watering for up to 5 days! You can also just use the ceramic pot on it’s own- so neat!

Ahh, sooo pretty to look at! I think I will add a catbus / nekobus or Totoro somewhere there and make my own Totoro Forest miniature haha.

Hi everyone!

Just taking a break from today’s work duties. Taking a break = blogger mode on, haha!

If you’ve been following my snaps (rainbowholic.me), you would know how I’ve become so (overly) attached to my hobonichi.

I think that this hobonichi activity has become my regular stress-reliever. Everyday, I respond to many emails and messages (mostly to answer clients’ inquiries / to disseminate tasks within my team) and I would easily get overwhelmed by everything happening all at the same time. I’ve realized that allowing myself to have a downtime (and just be myself, doodling my dreams on papers and designing the pages with washi tapes lol) is actually a good creative exercise. : ) You guys should also try it! Add more color to your day ~

It’s amazing how a simple work day like today (and mind you, it was stressful haha) became much more interesting with this simple form of leisure!

I bought some Gudetama stickers / washi tapes when I went to Sanrio Puroland before.. and I’m so happy that I finally get to use these for a personal project! 😀
