Making life simple An idillic environment and an inspiring collection of stories about finding natural sanctuary in a modern world
My name is Jonna Jinton, I’m 26 years old live in the woods in the north of Sweden. I practice the art of kulning, which is the name of the ancient Swedish herdingcall. It was used a long time ago to call the herdstock (the cows and goats) and to communicate with other women. Because of it’s very high pitch tones the sound can travel through very far distances and makes very load echoes. To me “kulning” has become a form of art and I love to share my music here on this channel. Besides kulning, I work as an artist, photographer and are running one of the most popular blogs in Sweden. I hope you will like my channel and that you would like to subscribe! 🙂
Hi my lovely friends! So much have happened since my last video. Both in our lives, but also in the world. Isn’t it strange how fast things can change? How vulnerable we actually are. It’s a time with so much thoughts in my mind, and I guess, also in yours. But I hope with this video I can share some inspiration and positive vibes from our daily lives in the northern woods. It’s still the time of the year when I struggle with creativity, but it’s only about a month left until the spring arrives here as well. And I think the spring will come with so much new energy. And I hope to use it in making more videos and music, and hopefully, be able to spread some good energy in these hard times. So in this video, you will see what I’ve been up to lately. We have finally moved our jewellery workshop into our newly renovated room in the barn. And we needed to change some plans and make new decisions regarding the release of the new webshop that was supposed to happen now in April, because of the situation in the world right now. We have also gone through a loss here in our little family. We lost one of our cats, which has been making us feel very down lately. I will let you know more about all this in the video. I hope you will like the video! Thank you so much for watching! ♥ And my heart goes out to all of you in the world who has a challenging time right now. Stay safe and well. Much love to all of you ♥
Hi my dear friends ♥
For so long I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to go to the mountains again. My heart has been longing like crazy. Especially every autumn I get this urge to come to this beautiful wild place. It feels like my second home.
And finally, I went for a week to the mountains.
I have been hiking around in the open spaces. Taken really deep breaths of the clean air.
Swimming in the ice cold rivers in the evenings and been out all days to film and take photos.
It’s been a real boost of inspiration and energy.
In this vlog I share some moment of this week with you. Both the ups and the downs.
Hope you will enjoy it ♥
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING! ♥
Sending you all lots of love and light!

The winter days are slowly passing by. On sunny days I can finally hear the birds sing again, and the sun rises higher every day. And in the darkest of nights, the northern lights spreads its wings of light over the sky. Its a beautiful part of the winter, where we still get the cold, the snow, and the nightsky, but feeling the very first tiny signs of spring. I finally woke up from my little “winter hibernation” after feeling really uninspired for the past two weeks. I let you know a little more about that in this video. I also let you know what we been up to lately. A glimpse into our everyday life right now.
This video is about how I changed my life 8 years ago, when I left the citylife and moved 1000 km to the north and started a new life close to nature. Close to all the things my heart was longing for. These 8 years have been so challenging and hard but also wonderful and magical in every single way. I have learnt so much from that day I came to the old house in this smal village in the forest with no money, no job and no plan on what I should do with my life. But from that day I started living, for real. I started appreciating things that I had never even thought of when living in an apartment in the city. And I learnt that you can never feel the wonderful, comfort feeling of warmth if you have not yet been cold. I started with nothing but a dream. And today, I live my dream. Everyday I feel so thankful for still being able to live here in my little paradise deep in the forests in the north of Sweden, and working with all the things I love, and sharing my life with someone I love. In this video you get to see a short summary of these years. Of course, many details are not included since the video would be 2 years long if I would include all the things that happened along the way. But at least it tells my story in a big picture 🙂 I hope you like it! ♥ ► SOCIAL MEDIA AND LINKS! • Instagram: @jonnajinton http://www.instagram.com/jonnajinton
