This weekend I have been trying to work on some earrings to sell in town, earrings that have the colors of our local school so I have just gotten done with this weeks inchie. Both are done and I am caught up (for now!)
So let's get to it. Last week's inchie world tour landed in Denmark. So many great things about Denmark to talk about that I decided to go to one thing that is actually becoming a huge deal here in the states. Cannabis, here many states are starting to legalize it for medical purposes. But in Denmark there is a district, Christiania or Freetown Christiania. It was an abandoned military base that in 1971 was taken over by some "hippies". Ever since then it has been popular as a "Green Light District" where "pot" or Marijuana is legal. Even though it isn't legal in the rest of the city.
So I decided to use that as my inchie. What a controversial issue from a country that my uninformed mind felt that Denmark was above. I know that might sound weird but sometimes you think about a different country and in your minds eye you see it totally different than it might actually be and I see Denmark as a country of sweet, gentle, well mannered people who don't know how to commit crime, much less smoke pot! Haha! That is what I get for assuming.
This week the Inchie world tour stops in Cyprus. I really did not know much about Cyprus. I knew it was an island off of Greece...and that is about it! But when I looked it up I found out about love. Apparently Aphrodite was born in Cyprus. I am all for love so for this week's inchie I made a heart because what is love without a heart?
That is it for me this week. I will hopefully (fingers crossed) be back next Monday with next weeks inchie, until then have a blessed and creative week my friends.
