Inspiring Design

Just got reminded today of Biomimicry. The Biomimicry Institute was founded by Janine Benyus who noticed that brilliant design answers are all around us in the astonishing elegance of design in nature. Engineers using biomimicry look to nature for design answers, for examples please click on this link:

Todays thoughts:
Iwant to be a real live human being!
I don't want to be a plastic perfect simulation
I want to hear my lifebloods urgency
howling in furious ecstasy

Daily Prayer

Origin Window 2002 by Jessica Berry

The magnetic power of the heart is 5000x stronger than thought! We are all connected through this heart field. If you drop your pilot down into the heart seat, what dreams may come?

Thought I'd share my daily prayer:

I am blessed by the warmth of friendship
I am blessed by the experience of contrast (joy and sorrow)
I am blessed by the wellspring of eternal love
I am blessed by the ecstasy of sex
I am blessed by the joy of dance
I am blessed by my masters and teachers
I am blessed by the ripeness of timing
I am blessed by the presence of grace
I am blessed by the unfolding mystery of each day
I am blessed by the magic, wonder and beauty of life
I am blessed by the tapestry of interconnection
I am blessed by the field of infinite potential and give thanks for what I receive
I am blessed, nurtured and sustained by earth mother goddess and father sun
who dwell in me as one
I am one with the universe in divine co creation
I am an instrument of loving kindness
I am a radiant dancing goddess of joy!
I am one with the one love
and So it is.
Peace is on Earth* Loving kindness is blossoming* Sacred Wilderness is always honoured

Whats important in this life? We experience the illusion of separateness in this physical world in order to meet each other! What a divine game of hide and seek.

dolls with souls

Something that is a lot of fun for me is doll making. My favourite moment is when the soul of the little character reveals itself and i meet them for the first time. Most of the dolls I make have been commissioned and intuitively made for a client, I get a strong sense of the character needed for the person it will belong to, i usually ask for a few personal details to help me out. Please enjoy the images of some of the dolls I've made over the years... If you happen to feel like asking me to make you a special intuitively made little friend that would be my pleasure, email me on

Sharing the joy!

Welcome to my first ever post! I am Jessica Berry- the artist behind the label Knippen. Knippen is Dutch for 'snip'or more specifically 'to cut with scissors'. I have been handy with the scissors since kindergarten, Knippen celebrates over 25 years of make and do. Make and do is what I've always done, for me the creative process is pure joy. Working as a creative facilitator is also joyful for me as sharing the joy is even better ;o) What brings you joy? why not share it around today? Each of us was created beautifully to contribute individually to the song of the whole.xx more soon
