I have been admiring Satsuki Shibuya's works and followed her blog for quite sometime now.
I don’t know why it took me so long to discover her video seminar, here, in 2013.
As a freelancer, I found her lecture so helpful in focusing on what I need to do on a daily basis
and where I should invest my energy into. I hope you find the video helpful as much as I did :)
Last Saturday, I got some tickets to see a fireworks show in Itabashi.
It was my very first official hanabi show in Japan as I usually take-a-peek at them through my windows!
Although the weather was brutally hot and the train was all packed like this (not joking!),
I really did enjoy the show and summer street food! Hope you love the photos, my favorite is the second photo.
I think it looks more like the universe than fireworks :)
Remember my last post about DIY concrete stool? Since I have some left over concrete mix from the last project,
I'm wondering what to do next with the concrete? I found these interesting concrete projects all over the internet.
Concrete coffee table sounds like a good idea!

If you follow the link here , you can find that the video instruction is pretty easy to follow.
I used a smaller bucket size than what it was being used in the video,
so I simply used 2 kg of concrete mix with approximately 2 cups of water.
I found that once you pour the water into the concrete mix, it will become pretty dense and a little difficult to mix,
so I used a small gardening shovel to make sure everything is all mixed.
Oh, and I suggest making a small hole in the middle of the mound, and then add the water into the
hole (as if you were making bread) it will make mixing so much easier!
The fun part is that once you get the water and concrete ratio just right,
the texture will be very much gelato-like, so easy to sculpt (I hope it makes sense!) and shiny.
That’s it for now. I hope my tips are somewhat helpful!
