This wonderful doll was sent to me by Denis. This doll was made by the doll master @alyona_dorokhova from Odessa, Ukraine. It’s so beautiful, isn’t it?

Fishing and Mushrooming
What is summer without good fishing and mushrooming?
Cymbal from Jamie Morrison
One of my cymbals was broken this summer. I posted about that on my Twitter account. You won’t believe it but Jamie Morrison and Stereophonics responded and gave me a new cymbal instead of my broken one:
This fantastic Tama chair was given by Markus Fuchs @feuerfux:
The biggest secret and adventure of the summer 2018 was the girl rock band The Sixsters. Rehearsals, rehearsals, and new rehearsals for several months!
Our debut performance was held on the the 16th Charity Children Festival “Black Sea Games 2018” (Skadovsk, Ukraine) on the 29th of July. It was unforgettable! Incredible experience and great lessons of friendship and creativity.
Hooray!!! I became the owner of the Paiste cymbals. Huge thank you to Meelis Kasepalu, Гарькавый Александр, Konstantin Żmijewski, and Realmusic.ua for their support!
What Else Was There?
Of course, there were a lot of other interesting events this summer too. It’s difficult to mention all of them. But for sure the summer 2018 was cool – with a lot of trainings, adventures, exciting challenges, and meetings with many beautiful people 🙂
