World Environment Day – how to create good quality content

What an interesting week it has been. After being chosen to the top5 with my World Environment Day video, I’ve spent the entire week on the campaign trail – promoting World Environment Day, telling people about my video, commenting, talking, tweeting and blogging more. It’s great! Questions of the climate change, rising sea level, and…

World Environment Day – the campaign trail

It’s always so exciting to campaign, be it for a politician, cause, or even just an event. There’s something in the horizon that you want to see happening, and campaigning brings the horizon a little closer, widens the circle of people who are interested and at best, creates new ways of thinking and acting, widens your…

World Environment Day – made it to the top5

You may remember my post some weeks ago, where I showed you the video I made for UNEP’s video blogging contest for the World Environment Day? It seems the video made it to the TOP 5. Wow. I was pretty speechless when I heard the news. But of course, I should have learned by now:…

Doilies, stripes and triforce crochet

As I’m again starting a new crochet project, a striped and airy tunic for the summer, I can’t help but stop and think how versatile crochet is as a technique. There are so many things you can do, and none of them have to be granny squares, lacy curtains or bedspreads. Take a look. First…

World Environment Day – my video

I’m taking part in the World Environment Day blogging contest again. As you may remember, last year we wrote traditional blog posts about sustainable consumption and food waste in particular, but this year it’s all about video blogging. The broad theme for #WED2014 is small islands and climate change. If last year I worked on the…

Climate change is real and you too can change

Here I am, with my white tulips and my next read, The Power of Habit. I want to find out if I can change some things in my life, and I want to understand why it seems so difficult to accomplish changes, even though I know they are good for me in the long run. While…

Plan A

You know that feeling, when your dreams are slowly starting to shift towards reality? Perhaps ever so slightly, but still? That’s how I feel every time I start crocheting something. Here’s a doily rug in the making, a pattern called Asteri. It’s refreshing to follow a pattern every once in a while! I recently read an interesting…

The Happiness project, part II

Time seems to fly, when there’s daylight. I can’t believe it’s been almost one month since my previous post. Spring equinox is tomorrow. Already? I’ve stopped using my Wake-up light in the mornings only this week, as the day starts to dawn around 6 a.m. and I don’t need to wake up to pitch black darkness…

The happiness project

Ten good things from today. The good news from Ukraine, where violence has ceased and people are slowly returning to normal life. I’ve heard so many inspirational radio interviews on people who may have suffered significant losses, and yet, they speak with such poetic beauty about their country, their fellow citizens, democracy, truth, human rights…
