One of my brothers is making a bike for kids, it is a put-it-together-your-self bike for smaller kids. It has a lot of potential, and you can build a mini harley dream, or what you desire, a lot of ideas is on its way. The first model is here, so look at his homepage, and as seen on the pictures below. Believe me it is so cool- try google “blinkenbike” and learn more…

cactus

Suddenly there appeared cactus up anywhere in my media universe, and at the Christmas markets I visited, at graphic artists and elsewhere. I was inspired by one of them, and made this pincushion for my friend and my niece for Christmas in green veleour and with pins. Will have to make one for myself too. For more “real” cactus look on instagram at palmasalonspa she loves cactus as well…

fashion blogger’s

Nothing wrong about that, there is just so many of them. Like going into a supermarket looking for breakfast cereals, and realizing there is 5 rows of it …and then I cannot decide! But I have two fashion bloggers, that I look at sometimes when I need to look at something else than climate changes, refugees and other horrible things in this world: mayawyh.com fashion, art and other, and sincerelyjules.com mostly fashion and travel destinations. – and it is not all about destroyed jeans, that is a coincidence 😉

For 30 years I have collected driftwood and stones, and made furnitures, sculptures, small wood art pieces, and wind chaims just to mention a few, but this I found today on Pinterest and I think it is beautiful right here in a world full of famous brands and diamonds…

 

 

 

all back again…

A sweet lady wrote to me the other day, where are you? there has not been any activity on your posts since March and now I am worried! I do not know her but I was honestly happy. I have been in a kind of hibernation, had some personal things to take care of, but most of all it happened that my two beloved sons, who for two years had saved up for a major trip abroad, got seriously ill on Bali. This happened in the beginning of April. They had planned several months of touring in the East with several surf spot stop, here and there, and as they had travelled in just 12 days, one of them got seriously ill with Dengue fever. None of us imagined that this was a possibility. We had talked about virtually everything else but that. Emil was admitted to the intensive care unit and was there with drop in both arms in 10 days crisis. His brother was happily beside him. When he got better, my second son Albert got sick – which is statistically impossible, as they said at the hospital in Bali. Imagine that both your children are seriously ill, 24 hours flight away on the other side of the world in a country where they speak poor English. I could write hours about the fear that was in me, the grief and fear I had in my body, until I after 30 days got them both home in a wheelchair. To week to walk themselves, skinny and pale. But they came home alive 🙂 and I have all greatest gratitude. There is an insurance company in Denmark called “Safe” (Tryg), and those I can only recommend, they kept me informed 24/7 along the way, was there for me with blood test answers and other informations, and the doctors who handled the case from here in Denmark were nice and proffessional. When I got a call on the approximately 20 day, that I should be ready to take off and get all the vaccines, I kind of broke down. One was now so seriously ill that they thought It was best for me to leave the next day. Miracle happens and his clinical picture turned acute for the better, and I made the decision that I could do more staying in Denmark,  working on getting them home, or making their stay in the hospital easier. To this day, I still ask myself wheather it was right to leave or stay. Several of my acquaintances came with good advice, but we can only ourselves feel what we need to do. Making decisions in a situation where it comes to life and death, is the most difficult dilemma, especially when you get different professional input. One thing I found out is that, we only know the answer ourselves and I am very aware now, not to give any advice in a situation I do not have been in. We simply just need to be there for each other, listen and contribute with what is asked for. My husband was unique, he listened, held his arms around me, and arranged and took care of everything daily, so I should not think about anything else than getting my sons home safe and sound. There is year-long individually complications after the disease, the course with side effects is another story, and we do not know enough about the disease. They are still struggling with a huge physical and mental fatigue, they have to rest all the time, and have had to put their beloved daily sports on the shelf for about a year. (been playing ice hockey since they were small). I do not wish for someone young to have a near-death experience, in such an otherwise young and carefree age. My own experience with this first came when I was 31 years old, and it was not easy but probably better. Every day I thank our Lord for my children, and that they came home. Everything else we need to work on, the disease is getting closer to an epidemic now, so I think it is important to find a cure or a vaccine- I know that WHO is working on that. I am just so grateful …
