​Root girl and zero waste.

In my family I’m known as the root girl, because if I had my way I would only feed on parsley, carrots, beetroot and celery. Root vegetables, or “rooties” as I lovingly call the mix of my favorite ingredients, found a way to my heart one winter when I realized I stopped eating vegetables altogether, because somehow I could not work up an appetite for the tasteless tomatoes, hothouse plastic cucumbers and foiled lettuce.

The click

I was supposed to write about analyzing all of the ideas I wrote about previously, but right now let’s just say that both the workshop and the fairy tales ideas were considered as good, but not scalable enough. We have the desire to conquer the world in our blood, so unfortunately we had to discard these two ideas, at least for now. Also, the moment the idea of a clothing brand was brought up and Kasia described her vision in mere three sentences, we all knew that this would be it.

Butterbur and birch sap, or how now I go out into the field.

As I was one day traveling on a train run by the Małopolska regional railway, I noticed an advertising slogan on the reverse of the ticket, which read: "I am from Lesser Poland, I go out into the field". Cool, right? I have always appreciated local patriotism. As many of you probably know, people from Małopolska (or Lesser Poland) say that they go out into the field to denote that they are going outside, while in general in other parts of Poland they say they go out into the courtyard. Let’s not get into the intricacies of linguistics or compare regional dialects here. I'm not an expert so I shouldn’t step into these foreign territories. The truth, however, is that since I moved to the countryside, the language I use daily has not only changed a tad but has also incorporated new words that I have never heard before. As a result, I become familiar with concepts that I want to explore linguistically as well as get to know them almost face to face.

Beetroot muffins

My idea of how my involvement in this blog would look like was quite different. I wanted to write a fairy tale about our business. But since Maciek started telling you about the business aspect of what we create in his blog entries, I decided to put my "fairy tale" idea on the shelf.

Inspired by Marlena's last post about dream, I decided to make one of my dreams come true and share my culinary travels in the form of a painter’s cooking blog :)

„Why Attachment Parenting* doesn't work”

I remember when very soon after becoming a mother I bought one of the first available books about the soon to be very popular philosophies of Attachment Parenting and Nonviolent Communication. It was like a revelation to me! The book depicted what I can only describe as a dream come true relationship with my daughter! Empathy, trust, invisibility, following a child, trusting its needs, not violating its boundaries, appealing to its needs and becoming aware of your own.

about making your dreams come true...

Let me begin by talking about fulfilling your dreams, or more precisely about turning your plans into a reality. We can choose to live inside our dreams, in the small and cozy space of our imagination. No one looks there. There we can think about things which can be more or less real. Our dreams belong to us alone, and if they stay in this space for the rest of our lives, there’s a chance that nobody will ever know about them. What a pity!

The Beginning

Our ‘paterns’ adventure started in the spring of 2016. Kasia worked two jobs back then. As an interior designer for a Big Corporation, and the second as an art student, finishing her diploma in the class of painting - by the way, the subject and scope of her final work deserve a separate entry, which I promise to write in the near future. In any case, the sheer size of her diploma project corresponded with how deeply involved she is in everything she does. Simply put, she gave and continues to give her all.
