Do you know those evenings when inspiration basically attacks you but you don’t have enough tools and materials to make your vision come true? It happens to me all the time! I have so many ideas in my mind right before I go to bed and most of the times I just think to myself that I’ll buy all the “ingredients” tomorrow and make it happen!

Who cares it’s 7pm, all the stores are closed and I don’t even have enough tools? Nobody does 馃檪 Besides, I already have a nice bra from the same velvet, so I needed the belt right away.
