zween comes from Arabic and means:
Beautiful, cool, cute, lovely, pretty, kind, attractive, appealing, unique, wonderful, pleasing, fine, delightful, ideal, exquisite, dazzling, elegant, magnificent, marvelous, superb, excellent, interesting, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera…
In the context of this blog, zween is about embracing a D.I.Y. attitude and celebrating the handmade.
Because our planet is becoming a more homogenous place every day and I do not want Wal-Mart to take over the world.
Because I appreciate the handmade and recognize creativity in each person.
Because Do-It-Yourself is a good mantra to live by and there is a small but growing army of people doing so.
And because as an individual with a blog I have the power to help people create not only things, but experiences to enrich their lives which aren’t available at big box retailers.
