A Box Full of Art

Yes, a huge box in a shape of a building called Artbox


Or in another word: My favorite place in Seoul, ever. I think I've shown some pictures about it but haven't really talked about it. A place filled with adorable stationary goods, I can spend a day there just looking at everything and feel happy. In fact, I did go there one day and just enjoyed everything and came back the next day to repeat the activity.

It's crazy.

Crazy.

This is a place where I can go insane just looking at the pretty pictures in the cover of the stationary, and opening the pages and feel even more inspired and crazier, and then looking around and realize that there are still rows of notes, and diaries, and planners I've yet to touch, and it doesn't only contain notes, it has all stationary goodies you're looking for, or maybe even not looking for but you'll find it there anyways.


In short, this is my heaven, I mean, look at all those goodies winking at me and tempting me to touch them! Oh the temptation! And do you know the hardest part? It's that I spent hours (literally) just to choose which one I want to buy because clearly this poor young lady couldn't buy everything (because I still have to buy makeup and dresses, you know, lololololol). 


It'd be nice if someday I can see my artwork there too. I mean, almost all the stationary has the artists' name on it. Which is seriously adorable, seriously. I've said that Korean-style art is one of my favorite, they seem to have this certain dose of cuteness with their pastel colored illustrations and stuff. Of course there are differences between artists but I can always tell when it's a Korean artist.


By  the way, why do I suddenly bring this topic up? (1) Because I'm in dire need of new notebooks, worse is I'm running out of my own notebook (means: notebook with my artwork on the cover), and (2) Maddie from Head High Heart Strong is currently having a giveaway with something from Artbox as one of the prizes. I shouldn't miss this huge opportunity now, should I? So you should join the fun too~! (~ ̄▽ ̄)~

I am so envious of her because she's currently in Korea while I'm still struggling to finish my thesis before I can finally run away from whatever shit I'm doing right now (oops! I just said bad words!). But really though, all these thesis-related stuff is killing me (╥_╥) I just wish I can finish everything soon.

AMEN.

Oh, and as I've said before, everything in Artbox is cute, including this sign~ which can be found outside the store. ^O^.

  9. Ah! I'd like to visit Korea so much. I like that this store is called Artbox :D Maaaan I love stationary and pens and stuff --since I was broke, that was literally all I bought myself when I visited Japan XD. Seriously, though, cute cute stuff here. I understand totally about spending hours trying to decide what you want :D I'd like to visit this place some day, thanks for bringing it to my attention. P.S. I will send you good vibes for your post college(?) endeavors in the hopes that you can travel to wherever you want. THat is, of course, the wish for myself as well when I graduate in (unfortunately) a year and a half.
