Beauty Room and Home Office Prep

Beauty Room and Home Office Prep

Have you been ready for summer?  Gah, I’ve been counting the days.  July is the ultimate  ME time.  My day job allows me to have the month of July off work each year and I’m planning to take full advantage of this time to get projects done and cross things off my list.  I’ve been prepping my beauty room / home office and getting it all organized and ready to create!  My biggest personal endeavor is my personal website that I will be launching by the end of summer.  As I go along this journey, I will be making journal posts of the progress!

I’ve been doing my research on the right markers, sketch pens, and other digital tools to help me create as much as I can this summer!  I love the phrase that I placed above my desk – it’s something that helps remind and drive me…

At any given time this month you can catch me with Spotify blaring and more than a few Adobe programs open.  I’m creating Photoshop brushes, logo kits, blog kits, and illustrations to be transformed into clip art.  I just need a small platform to start – I’m getting really freaking excited. 😛

A clean beauty vanity is EVERYTHING!  I have all things in their place and ready to use – this vanity (which my lovely husband so sweetly put together for me) is something I use every. single. day.  I will never use or put on makeup in the bathroom ever again!

My vanity lights are IKEA Musik lights that were rewired to a dimmer switch attached to the desk.  The lights on either side are $29 each, but if you’re lucky enough to hit up IKEA when they’re on sale – $14.99!!! Here a list of the items used to make the vanity you see below!

About April

I’m a product of the 80’s and survived the era of Rainbow Brite, British Knights, New Kids on the Block, and the beginning of MTV. I’m 34 years old, born and raised in Sacramento, CA. I have always had a fascination with buttons, so as digital media progressed I found myself using my traditional artistic skills on a computer screen. Visit my website, Open Image Media, for my hand-drawn clip art, illustrations, graphics, blog kits and more!
