Much Needed Month Off but alot of band stuff going on !

Hey Lovelies!!
I know I have been MIA all month long, but it was very much needed after all of my stressful but very fun month of October! All of the Halloween prepping and blogging had me sooooo exhaustes! I have taken off from the blogging scene for the month of November, but it has been a very busy real life for me, nonetheless. My band Stelladeora has been prepping all month long for our first ever acoustic show on December 1st! We have been practicing 3x a week, and it still feels like we are so unprepared. I'm sure things will be fine, things always seem to come together last minute, or under the pressure of watching eyes, but that anxiety is still there.

Well I just wanted to share some of the stuff we've been working on. Here is a sticker I designed to hand out at our upcoming shows...

Also here is a little doodle that I did in my sketchbook... It is a hot air balloon because our song "Magnetic Poetry" is about a man who takes his lover up on a hot air balloon ride,in a secret plan to throw her to her death because she couldn't be with him due to a mental disorder. He throws her to the ground only to find out that she had put a note in his pocket saying that she is now being treated for her illness and they can finally be together. He screams to himself "WHAT HAVE I DONE!?!" Here is our Hot Air Balloon logo that we are now using on our website

This drawing was done in Ink, water color, color pencil , and the hot air balloon stripes was a napkin I collaged onto the drawing. This image I am working on to put onto some band merchandise which will be available to purchase on our webstore in the near future. Our bass player Ryan also had the idea to make die cut magnets with our "Magnetic Poetry" balloon , lol how fitting !

Also, speaking of Magnetic Poetry, Hollywood Girl decided to use our track again for Quinn's Video Log!

And one last bit of band news! We are competing in Converse's Get Out of the Garage Contest!
