Do you care about climate change? This is a movie you need to see. I was sceptic, I was biting my nails the first 15 minutes, but then it grabbed me and made me think. Us eating meat is the number 1 reason for climate change. 18%. Think about that. Meat the truth.

Every day around 18:40 he has his own item where he tells a fact. And the fact is not always 100% guaranteed correct as he get's them from other sources...like...the internet. And we know the b*shit they write there. Take this blog for example.
Anyway, the facts are mostly funny, not very important, but of high entertainment value. You ask what? An example? Are you sure? I am warning you. Okay, here it goes. Did you know you breathe in 1000cc of farts daily?
Sorry you asked yet?
Again, anyway, one day a publisher thought it would be fun to put all the things he collected over the 5 years he has been doing this together in a book. I am still not sure why, but it all came together in his book that is now for sale. And as you might understand, I have ab-so-lu-te-ly NOTHING to do with this. It's a guy thing I guess.

Hierboven zie je mijn inzending. Ik ben heel benieuwd welke stofjes er later op mijn deurmat vallen..

I wanted to have this from before I ever used a sewing machine. What is it you say?It is a great way of carrying a sketch book and some pencils around. I made it to take it with me on holidays and travels. My very own pencil cover.
Right after I took the picture above, the pencil fell out. And to avoid that ever happening again, I made small pockets to keep them in place.
I am so happy with this! And then to think that LittleZ has it on her blog as a free pattern...
This sure was an ascension day well spent.

For that reason I hosted a passport cover swap on swapbot in our Dutch group. I made this cover for Mirjam to personalize her travel document. I learned a lot again sewing this. With every project I make a mistake and learn from it. And with every project I like sewing more and more.

And this....ladies and gentlepeople...this item I found for 1,60 euro in a thrift store.
It is a sack to store items in I guess. But I loved the detailed mandala on it. Especially for that little price.
I guess that's all for now on mandala's. Can you tell I really like them? What gave it away?

Madrid - Spain

Another mosaic with 2 mandala shaped figures in it. Over 1600 years old. Can you imagine?
And the diameter is over 1 meter. Makes me wonder how many people worked on this, how, how long and also....why? What is the story behind it? And no...that story is not on the piece of paper next to it. That just says how old it is and where it was purchased. In case you were thinking of out smarting Moi.

Today I ran into these pictures.
That is the Northern Light. Isn't it the prettiest thing ever? It makes me love Mother nature even more! The pictures were taken in Yellow Knife in Canada.
I received these beauties in my inbox but there's not mentioned who took the pictures.
Scientifically, the Auroras are produced by the collision of charged particles from Earth's magnetosphere, mostly electrons but also protons and heavier particles, with atoms and molecules of Earth's upper atmosphere (at altitudes above 80 km (50 miles).
The point about the Northern Light that makes me hesitate to ever go see it in real life? This
What did I say about loving Mother Nature? Well, she's a woman...and women can be .. fill out the dots as you please.

Yesterday was Queensday in the Netherlands. Juri had to entertain people at the Light Square in Eindhoven for an hour and he did a very good job. I went along with my camera and tried to take some pictures to catch a little of the Queensday atmosphere. People dressed up in orange dancing and having fun in the streets. I love Queensday!
