Kids Jam + Kawaii Journaling for Business Organization

Hi friends old and new!

I thought I’d share some kawaii journaling.

I’m overwhelmed with creative ideas and business builds, so I decided to organize a massive brain dump … the kawaii creative way. Yah know?!

So Wednesday, I took my usual drawing day and did some d.i.y and repurposing. But before I hop to that though, let me share my studio, Little INKPLAY Shop‘s first event.

✨ Kawaii Journaling Organization for Business

So, like I shared earlier, I have A LOT of creative ideas. From response and feedback, it seems like a lot of my ideas have potential. I want to take the feedback more serious and do better to organise and grow my ideas. So I did a thing … I found an unused moleskin book (I tend to hoard journals and blank books 🙈😅 so I probably grabbed it some time ago) and turned it into my business planning and creative ideas book. Check it out!
favorite quote by Matisse (poorly doodled 😅)
Important note: My way of business organization is in part inspired by Kaila’s recent Hobonichi with Me project and ABC Daily Journaling with Abby Sy and friends at Kawaii Philippines. (link to recent Kawaii PH post about journaling) Items for organizing include kawaii stationary, washi tapes, and stickers from two of my favs –  Rainbowholic Shop and Kawaii Box.

♡ Organizing Overall The Vision/ Concept

aligning the objectives of my work + pay it forward + social message
how does my business fit into my local creative economy’s bigger picture?
how (& to who) am I willing to pay it forward?
explain the social message of positive self-improvement through creative living
inspirational quotes can be doodled here! ^.^
Organizing overall short/ long-term goals on a page was an after thought. So I repurposed my front page for these things. When the spirit hits again, though, I’ll probably design the page for my own creative amusement. 😅

♡ Organizing Little INKPLAY Shop Concept and Classes

Mission:Everyone has the opportunity to make a better life, but not everyone knows how to. For those who happen to know, help those who don’t.” What better way to explore this possibly overwhelming concept than with something as relaxing and creatively challenging as art?!
I’ll be doing brain dumps of art exploration classes I want to organize and host
ready to doodle organise my ideas away
excited for some of these product ideas already … but baby steps ^^

♡ Organizing Creative Projects & Ideas

Tim’s teaching me how to organise my ideas and weave them into my business (as I see it in my head ^^)
this page will be filled in no time! ^.^

  1. Whenever I see organizational journals like this it makes me wish I was more artistic! I have creative ideas but my brain just wants to put them in a list form with no frills…but I wish my brain worked with frills!

  2. That cursive font is amazing! Just had to start with that. I’m loving how colorful this is! An idea book is something I’ve always had to have because there are so many creative ideas that are fleeting unless you get them down and get organized. Getting organized doesn’t really sound all that creative, though. Ha! Nonetheless, we have to do it, right? Loving your style, girl!

  3. I am one of those planner people with a million different notebooks and journals, but your style is so cute! I love your colorful take on organization.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m extremely visual and colors (depending on the project) will keep me motivated and focused. Also it helps with remembering if you have a host of projects – think (hyper) color coordination 😉

  4. I absolutely love this! I love how you aren’t pigeon holing kawaii as “docile”. But showing it can be creative and empowering! Such a great example of how to use that creativity as a way to push forward! Super awesome :). Found you on twitter and am definitely a fan 😉

    1. OMG! Hi Bree ~
      You have truly made my day. I appreciate the kind words more than you know. I feel like I’m on the right track now! *woot* Thank you for confirmation and please, please, please don’t be a stranger <3
