    Just as a random video idea/challenge could you do a full picture using only pink and pastel blue/turquoise? Those are some of my favorite colors and they look really cool together. This is just a request, but you don't have to if you don't want to.🙂

    Hello mako... I wish you all the luck in the world for your new spectacular beginning....l know you are probably busy these days with the renovation and all........but since you are like a really good friend l'd like to share my thoughts with see that there is an art prodigy 'Autumn de Forest' and really feel that she doesn't deserve the fame she gets through her artworks and l know l should not be boasting but l feel that though l am younger than her but my artworks are better. I wish to express my talent. What should l do?
    Please do see and judge my artwork. You can find it on Pinterest by the name 'Discovering Myself'.
    Yours truly,

    I wish we were allowed to paint our apartment. I dislike the cream and white thats throughout all of the rooms :/ The paint scuffs so easily and doesnt seem to be very high quality so I have a feeling there will be a lot of touch ups required if we ever move.
