I’ll get to work on the moodboards for this year’s 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners and hopefully it won’t take me as long as last year’s! ;) Thank all again so much, I loved each and every one of these stories!

You know it’s only eleven months and ten days before Christmas Day, but it’s still the winter season! Won’t you want to come take a trip down here and spend the night under the Northern lights?

I ordered the tree from AliExpress months ago, but it only arrived now orz. Worry not, Wei Ying won’t let it go to waste! After hours of crafting and attaching tiny ornaments, here we are :)
