Traditional Slavic charm doll - Travnica

She cares about health, good mood and well-being of each family member. The doll is filled with sintepon (to keep feminine form of her hips:) and dried sweetgrass - lavender. It will help you to sleep good if you put Travnica next to your pillow.


Summer means Tanbo art or “rice paddy art” season in Inakadate, a village located in northern Japan’s Aomori Prefecture (previously featured here) where farmers have been growing rice for over 2000 years. Since the early 1990s they’ve been celebrating their agricultural heritage by turning their fields into gigantic canvases, planting four different strains of rice to grow living illustrations.

For this year’s organic opus Inakadate residents were inspired by a galaxy far, far away. They turned their fields into an awesome Star Wars tribute featuring beloved droids C-3PO and R2-D2, as well as BB-8, the newest droid to join the franchise:

Unikeonpäivä, or ‘National Sleepy Head Day’, has taken place in Finland on the 27th July every year since 1709.

National Sleepy Head Day is based on the belief that whoever sleeps the latest on that day will be tired all year and is the “sleepyhead of the year”. The “sleepyhead” is woken up with water; for example, by throwing them into a lake or sea. The day is based on an old Christian myth of the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus who hid in a cave to escape persecution around 250 AD.

Another common belief is if it rains on the day, it will rain for the next 7 weeks.

Working Together

Working on a story with another person can be a lot of fun! However, it’s important to always remember that it’s a partnership and your opinions matter just as much as theirs, of course.

Remember to use the phrases 

  • “That’s a great idea! Can you explain?”
  • "How do you think this would work with what you’re thinking…”
  • "Maybe we could try <insert suggestion> as well”
  • ”What do you think of…?”

Writing together is all about communication and understanding. If they don’t like your ideas, try to work around it and compromise. A good story is seen in so many different lights and your view of something isn’t going to be the same as their’s. That’s what makes the story rich!


Tradition meets Future Bohemian Crystal Manufacture & Tour de France The making of two champions Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. Aristotle

People don’t like saying “doing it the same way we’ve always done it, willfully ignoring any sense of perspective or context, until we all die of stupidity”. 

Some popular euphemisms are “tradition” and “values” and “dictionary definition” and “religious freedom”.
