Habits, revolutions and crochet

I spent the entire day yesterday finishing my most recent crochet project, the striped summer top. It’s almost done! I’ll do a separate blog post about it later, but here you can see the pattern I’ve been following. It’s a combination of single, double and triple crochet. Lately, the weather in Finland has been rather…

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…

Insert elegant evil and refuse to comment – House of Cards

In the aftermath of World Environment Day blogging contest by UNEP and TreeHugger, I started watching House of Cards, a TV series only available at Netflix. So far I’ve only seen two episodes, and already the series is far better than I expected. But then again, how could anyone fail with Kevin Spacey? It seems…

World Environment Day blogging contest, part III

It seems the online voting system for the World Environment Day blogging contest was opened sometime yesterday so that anyone can vote as many times as they want. I realized it sometime in the evening, maybe around 9pm Finnish time. And just to be specific, I’m talking about my own experiences only – I suddenly…

World Environment Day blogging competition, part II

Pheew! The past two days have been intense with the online voting starting for the World Environment Day blogging competition by UNEP & Treehugger. In case you missed my last post, here’s a link to my final blog text Diamonds are not forever, the one that’s actually being voted on. In case you want to…
