Just a few things to say !

Just a few things I did last week. the first book is paris oriented and the other is kind of a memories thing. Have been trying to learn how to do coptic bookbinding, slow process to learn. I will do it however,eventually. Going to do some tea cozies. Some to put on ebay and some for gifts.Beautiful weather here. Had about 120 trick or treaters. Fun and so cute. Lots of big kids this year but fully costumed.

A lie does not consist in the indirect position of words, but in the desire and intention by false speaking, to deceive and injure another.

When someone shows you who they are, believe them.

Water and words....easy to pour....impossible to recover.

The best apology against false accusers is silence and sufferance, and honest deeds against dishonest words.

A half truth is the most cowardly of lies.

You may write me down in history
with your bitter twisted lies.
You may trod me in the very dirt.
But still I RISE. Maya Angelou

Jesus knows me, this I love.

No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar.
Abraham Lincoln

We tell lies when we are afraid... afraid of what we don't know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us. But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows stronger. ~Tad Williams
May you have the wisdom to feel discomfort at easy answers, half truths, superficial relationships, so that you will live deep within your heart.

May you have the wisdom to feel anger at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people so that you will work for justice, equality and peace.

May you have the wisdom to feel sorrow and tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war, so that you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain into joy.

May you have the wisdom to feel the foolishness to think that you can make a difference in the world, so that you will do the things which others tell you cannot be done.

Betty, I am amazed at how much art you can create in a week! I love the little Paris book and the colorful journal and the vintage book cover with the button - all of your work is so rich and appealing!
