End of Chapter

Concerns: taking on a more professional approach, starting work on prime projects, showing the person behind the creations, gathering new ideas and materials and uncovering previous work.

Little Vacation

Taking a few days out, treating myself to not one, but two shows by Norwegian formation Trail of Tears, the accomplished Black/Gothic Metal act that manages to prove itself more amazing each time I see them.

Quick Fix

Almost Finished Left Bracer

In realizing I would not be able to get both bracers duly finished in time, I decided to shift all focus onto completing at least one of them, upholding quality standards while granting myself some sleep before a heavy few days of melodious appreciation ahead.

The illustrious queen-sized Picnic Blanket that accommodates two to three on a beautifully bordered soft molton, spread out over a waterproof underground, and protected from rain by internal lining, with three variant color-panels, interchangeable for setting the surroundings to extend the determined outfits’ mood.
