2015 Bulletin Board

Tuesday, February 03, 2015

 At the beginning of each year I take everything off my bulletin board. A change of scenery is nice and I definitely do like to think of each new year as a fresh start. It just so happens that the beginning of this year also brought a new apartment my way. I haven't gotten too much hung in my office yet, actually my bulletin board is the only thing on that wall so far. I don't necessarily need a bulletin board, I don't actually put anything important up there and when I do put a note to myself up there I usually forget about it. I just can't seem to part with my bulletin board though. I love filling it with things I like. Happy photos, memories of good times, patches that won't fit on my jacket, etc. Just a bunch of things I enjoy looking at.
I'm absolutely loving the little corner of my office that my desk is in. It's already shaping up to be an awesome space. I'm dying to get the room finished. On one hand I feel like it might be one of the most complete rooms in my apartment so far but it's definitely missing a lot. I could fit A LOT more furniture in here but other than lockers which I've been stalking craigslist and just about everywhere else for I think I'm going to leave it fairly open in here. Having a big room filled with plants, and just a cozy little corner to work in will be nice. I can't wait to get it to a point where I can photograph and share it on here. Cross your fingers I can get my paws on some lockers soon!

Take a peek at past year's bulletin boards here - 2012, 2013 + 2014.

  2. God, I seriously do the same thing with my bulletin board. I do it a few times a year and get all choosy over what I'm going to put on it, then I hardly look at it or really draw much inspiration from it! I guess I do it because it's a fun little afternoon project and the results are nice? Haha. I love the little vintage valentine card on yours! :)

  3. I couldn't help but be distracted if such a cool thing was above me whilst I was working! It looks great x


  4. I like the idea of starting a new one every year! I feel like I often get too stuck on things I like but then they become stale.

    Glad to hear you are loving your new apartment and desk space!

    1. Exactly. I have a rule that I can't put anything up two years in a row no matter how much I like it.

  5. I love it. I found a big cork board last year, but I haven't figured out where to put it up yet.

  6. I want a bulletin board, too. It would be a great vision board as I have a lot of big dreams. Great post.


  7. I really love it! Super inspirational. The idea of hanging your goals for this year is also very clever to keep track on it! Ill sure do that on mine!


    1. Oh yeah, it's really easy for me to forget what goals I set unless I see them often.

  8. i love bulletin boards. not for holding necessary things, but for holding fun things. yours rocks!

  9. Would it be weird to ask where you got that anatomical skull from? I need one.
