Here is my idea board and major points of reference.
I live in Canada but my home country is Russia. Just as for many Russians, me and my family love celebrating New Years - probably our most favorite holiday. It brings warmth and magic into the house. So, I thought embedding elements of magic, elegance and winter into my work would be an interesting idea. Hopefully.!

Throughout many years, she has become an imminent part of Russian winter celebrations.
