Here are some things I’ve been working on.  Sorry for my absence, as I’ve been updating on Tumblr more these days since it’s connected to my Instagram account. It just makes things much easier to upload. Feel free to check them out and/or follow me there : ).

Sorry, I’ve been neglecting my WordPress account and using my Tumblr blog http://chrystalchan.tumblr.com/ more often due to convenience.  (My instagram account hooks up straight to it!)  But, I will still keep this up to date…just a bit slower.  I’ll be posting one more blog post right after this, for information of the upcoming show this Saturday!  Stay tuned!
