I don’t think I even wished you all a good start of 2018 so Happy New Year everyone!
My first post of this year will be a carol because outside is snowing, fairy lights are still all around the neighborhood and my Christmas tree is not in the storage room yet. Down below you have my dark version of the Ukrainian carol called “Carol of the Bells” (also known as “Ukrainian Bell Carol”) but most of the people know it from the “Home Alone” movie and this just makes me watch it again and again *cough*.
Although the song has been recorded about a month ago, yesterday I went into the forest and froze my fingers off while taking photos for the digital artwork that I also did last night (it took me more than 7 hours). I used to spend my nights playing with my graphic tablet and creating digital fantasy worlds, but at some point I just stopped but because the “New Year’s resolution” is quite popular nowadays, here’s my resolution for this year: to continue creating photomanipulations. What’s your resolution/s for this year?
Most of the Finns celebrated Halloween this year on 4th of November and that’s why yesterday when we went to the grocery store, the town was almost empty and a few of the stores were closed. And I was wondering why, until I checked my news feed and my beloved Finnish friends were sharing photos of their outfits and then I realized that all my decorations are now in boxes in our storage room waiting to see the light of the day next year -_- So yeah, I celebrated Halloween when there was still snow outside and it felt like a spooky Christmas to be honest xD

So yeah, here is a video of this year’s home decor! And subscribe to my YouTube channel if you are into music, art and life in Finland 🙂
’till next time!
I’ve been wanting to record the song “Once upon a December” for a while now but I didn’t have any free time or good disposition (the lack of sun here in Finland makes me really tired sometimes).
But yesterday I finished everything: from recording to filming and some extra photos in my “home studio” 😀 So everything is done by me!
The voice might sound like it’s coming out of a jar because I’m still learning my recording software but I’ll get there! Appreciate the effort, please! 😛
So, here you have my cover of “Once upon a December”. The movie has a special meaning to me and each time I watch it, my thoughts fly to my grandmother who is waiting for me home in Romania so I dedicate this to her with all my heart ❤
