House Renovation – Floors everywhere and a new entry door

Since the last time I posted about our house renovation project, there have been a few things my parents progressed with. We have now floors on all levels! (insert clapping and sounds of cheers here) It’s been a long time coming, as it’s a lot of work and needed a lot of coordination such as…

Experimenting with a new way of drawing animals

A couple of weeks ago, amongst all the travel preparations and house renovation organisation, I took a break and spent almost the entire day trying out drawing with ink and bamboo pens.
