Mandalas from dressmaker

14543358_10154115731929542_316999253_nAfter I created a club for talented women in Aarhus, I am blessed with interesting meetings everyday.

This late Friday story is dedicated to an amazing person Catherina. She is one of the loveliest, funniest and kindest people I have met in my life.

Catherina is from Malaysia, but her family originally comes from India.

6 years ago, on the internet, she met a Danish guy, and they started to chat on everyday topics. Half a year later they decided to meet each other in person. Catherina flew to Denmark for the first time to meet her future husband. This couple doesn’t have an easy romantic story. All this time they had to fly thousand of kilometers to see each other. But in the end they decided, that they love each other no matter of distance, languages and cultures. They got married last year.

Blogger’s first book

8grulxxjx1iMany articles I dedicated to other people.

But on this special day I want to write about myself.

Why is it day special? Because today I released my first book on amazon. And I would be very grateful, my dear readers, if you will support my project.

A little bit about me. I am Ukrainian, who is living in Denmark.

All my school years I was dreaming about travelling, and when I was 19, I found aupair job in Belgium. That year changed direction of my life. I understood how I enjoyed working with kids, I met many people from all over the world and they showed me the diversity of this planet.

Handmade toys by Ksenia

eczwzqbo1hgToday’s guest of the blog is Ksenia, who creates beautiful toys.

Ksenia is from the city Izhevsk (Russia).

Her most bright childhood memories are from the times, when her father helped her and her sister to make different creative things. As when they did a frog from a tree fungus, by adding paper legs and button eyes.

So nobody was surprised when Ksenia decided to study at art school and later at art pedagogical department at the university.

Game night in Aarhus, creativity meeting and guide at Aarhus institute

In my struggles with Danish language recently I didn‘t write any posts, but today is the day! I really missed writing for my blog.

Yesterday I had great and interesting day in Aarhus and I am looking forward to share the story with you, my dear readers.

My day started at Hasle culture house. In the area there live a lot of pensioners and people with small incomes, so at library they opened culture house. They have different initiatives, like creative shop, where one can bring their hand – made and sell it (there are pieces from Somalia, Romania, most are from Denmark). Since I like hand made, visiting this shop gives me inspiration (one woman does painting on stones, another makes braceletes from tooth brushes). Also at the culture house they have lessons for pregnant women, glass making, bord tennis and cafe with lunches and cakes (run by volunteers, so the prices are very small).

The event I attended was creative meetings, mostly pensioners come there, so for me it was great opportunity to practise my Danish. I really like pensioners here in Denmark, they have very social life and lots of hobbies. One can argue that they have good pensions so they can afford it. Well, it can be true, but also I think it is in the culture. People here do a lot of volunteer works, and no matter how ill they can be in an old age, they go to different social events.

How to become image – maker and personal stylist

kZM-kQmntfYToday I want to share with you story about beautiful and talented girl from Odessa, image – marker Marina.

I hope her story will help you to believe in yourself and start some new project of your life.

From childhood Marina had passion for languages, books, fashion and all beautiful things around her. So when she grew up she decided to study international economic relationships.

Why did I choose this education? Because I was curious how the world is, why some countries are rich,and others – poor. I wanted to discover different cultures and to learn new languages”.

After graduation Marina started to work at international logistic company. colleagues were nice, salary was very good, but after several years she understood that this job is not enough…

Marina wanted something more in her life. I think we all feel this from time to time, but how many people do listen to their heart and feelings?
