The days are short, weekdays are spend in darkness as when the sun still shines, your are locked away in your office at work. Driving to work in darkness, driving home in darkness
The weekends are spend mostly at home, with an occasional trip outside when the snow has fallen and the kids have an opportunity to play outside. The other days the kids have to release their endless amount of energy in the house generating a continuous stream of sound.
But now the Sun remains up while driving to work and the sunset can be experienced while driving home. The birds are appearing in the garden, the rosebuds are appearing in the rose bushes. The flower bulbs have woken up and the first traces of green can be seen coming out of the soil.
Travels have been planned. In the coming four weeks we will see Israel, Poland, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria & Germany.
Clothes have been designed and purchased.
This T-Shirt will be worn in Israel mid of March:
Next up will be a business trip to Sweden end of March, where I will be promoting my favorite project in the Tron Crypto world, Cityuptake:
Then beginning of April there will be the 10SC-weekend in Lierneux:
Step by step I am setting up the right micro-climate for my apparel “kingdom”.
With a limited budget it takes a lot of investigation to find a way to set up a shop with a shipping solution and a kind of nice user interface.
At first I checked apparel design sites with the intention to set up a webshop. However the costs are high (300$ / year) and there are no shipping solutions combined with warehousing. So the alternative was to create a website and claim a small shop in a not too accessible clothing Webshop called storenvy.
As storenvy itself is difficult to find and once you find it, it is impossible to find Carpathian Basin, there is the need to drive customers to the webshop and here this website comes in. The other purpose of this website is to create a frame (story) behind the brand,
Than the next question is how to drive traffic to the website? For that on of the solutions is Instagram. So Carpathian Basin Instagram is now live as well!
