Dina doll making its way to Hannover

Made Dina doll yesterday and she will embark on her journey via airmail to Frankfurt. She will be given away as lucky draw to those who buy my e-book (My Mother’s Garden in German language) published by Feingespinst, a project of KONO Design and Technology GmbH. The enhanced ebook with audio will be published before Christmas this year. It will be made available for sale at Apple’s iBook Store, and for the Google and Amazons Kindle devices.

Do you think she’s cute?


A Tree, I would be


If I have to be a tree,
to be the vital part of your earth,
I would.

* Changed ‘life’ to ‘earth’. Relevant that way.

I love Trees poem by Joyce Kilmer. Hear this:

Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918

I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain. 

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Jord – Telling more than time

I am not much of a materialistic kind of person but getting a Jord wood watch is too good to not brag about.

A wood watch? Nice concept, right? Simply means earth, soil, land (Swedish), Jord is made up of watches that are created from a variety of sustainably sourced wood from across the globe. Some of their current series of watches feature bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, zebrawood, and koa. Some series may contain one or multiple types of wood in line with the design and function of each watch.

Wood is not just a component of Jord watches, it is the main feature; guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design.

Personally, I like this watch because of what it is made of; sustainable wood, and the fact that it communicates well with my emotion. Say, if you are seated beside me on a cafe and you noticed a wood watch on my wrist, what would you say about me? Can you tell the basics about me from my accessories? It will be interesting to know. Do let me know your thoughts in the comment box.

jordwatchesEach JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. Normal wear and use can include kitchen activities, a day on the beach, the gym, etc.
