“Work at midnight like Cinderella’s mice, almost always, when everyone is sleeping and something pops up in my mind. I'm the queen of bad days, but some days I have nice days, 'nobody loves me' I think all the time, and this phrase sounds in my head with the soundtrack of Cinderella when her stepsisters destroy her dress. Maybe it's something maybe is nothing. I think that accidentally I recorded an UFO or maybe is just the reflection of my loneliness In the sky.” 

*This is a hand painted design. Each bag is unique!
