Dear Universe, I ask to be surrounded by abundant, flowing, limitless love. I ask to be around people who see my divinity and support me in sharing my light with the world. I want genuine love, genuine joy, genuine passion and genuine support by my friends, mentors, and family members. I’m ready to receive. I’m ready to give the same in return. I am ready.
The Capsula Mundi concept, from designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel, uses an egg-shaped burial pod made from biodegradable starch plastic as the coffin, in which the body is placed in a fetal position and buried under the ground. A tree (or tree seed) is then planted over the top of the pod, which will use the nutrients from the decomposing body as fertilizer for its growth. Although the Capsula Mundi is still a design concept, not an actual option for those planning for their funerals (in part because of regulations about burials and cemeteries), the designers hope that in the future, this type of burial will be allowed and “memory parks” full of trees will be planted. Instead of cemeteries full of headstones, the trees would serve as living memorials to the deceased.
ERRRRRRRR DOES THIS NOT TAKE PLACE ALL READY?
diy colour block clock
Like me are you in need of a quick DIY to spruce up that bare wall in your home office or room? I came across this diy clock by Molly from Almost Makes Perfect, and love the concept. I am a huge fan of colour blocking, and while you can be as wild with colours as you wish, this is a good example of a minimal blocking where texture plays a part. Personally I like the clean and simplistic option of the bare clock face and single colour against the beautiful wood grain.
• A clock kit (purchase here:)
• Wood clock base
• Acrylic paint of your choice
• Painters tape
not pictured :
• A small paint brush
• A pencil
• Sand paper
• Anything with a circular shape to trace around
Step 1: Sand your clock to get a smooth finish, then tape off half the wood with your painters tape and burnish it by smoothing with your nails.
Step 2: Using anything that has a round shape and is smaller than your clock, trace around the shape for a semi – circle, think pot lids (Molly used an old trash bin that was sized just right).
Step 3: Mix your paint with water so it’s more of a wash rather than a thick layer of paint.
Step 4: Paint the center and then carefully free hand around your circular shape. Make sure you dont have much paint on the brush when you do the edges or it’ll bleed.
Step 5: Once your paint is dry, slowly remove the tape and assemble your clock kit as instructed.
Wouldn’t these make great holiday gifts?
