Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays


To all my friends,

Somehow not only for Christmas but all the long year through, the joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing the poor and lonely and sad, the more of your heart's possessing returns to make you glad.
by John Greenleaf Whittier

Happy Holidays!!!

xxoo

Queridos amigos,
De alguma forma, não só para Natal, mas durante todo o ano , a alegria que você dá aos outros é a alegria que vem de volta para você. E quanto mais você gasta em abençoar os pobres e solitário e tristes, mais de retorno tera para seu coração se alegrar
. por John Greenleaf Whittier

Feliz Natal!!!
beijocas

Show Past weekend



I had a good time at Princeton Show this past weekend, even though the show was much slower than previous years. I saw old costumers and got new ones! But in my opinion they should be more strictly when jurying... anyway I spent a lot of time explaining what is felting , sold well and had fun , my husband and daughter who just came back from Stanford, Ca for the holidays came with us as well, so set up and break down was easy . Thank God!

Zelia a brazilian textile artist

"É no sossego de casa que dona Zélia, junto à roda de fiar, transforma lã de ovelha em fios que depois vão se transformar em peças de roupas. Sua vida está ligada ao artesanato em um arte que lhe dá alegria e também preserva uma cultura que une poesia e beleza."



Good morning all. This is a story about a brazilian weaver , who is as happy as she can be... isn't she soooo cute? always weaving. I want to age like her, making what I love the most ... weaving, crochet or Felting... take a look at video, even though it is in Portuguese ... you can sense her sweet inspirational spirit.


Blog do Rene Scholz: Zélia Scholz no jornal do meio dia da RPC - TV: "Foi veiculada hoje uma reportagem sobre o trabalho de Zélia Scholz com Tecelagem Artesanal. O link da reportagem é http://www.rpctv.com.br/..."

Our 27th anniversary today!!!! Nosso 27 aniversario de casamento!!



OMG! I may sound cliche , but it seems like it was yesterday when I said " Yes, I do!!!" Even though life sometimes is very difficult, and living together as couple can be even more, I don"t regret any second ... and I pray to God that we can be together for many, many, many more years

I love you!!!


Meu Deus! Essa frase soa tao comum... mas parece que foi ontem que eu disse: "Sim aceito", oubtavez tenha sido outra frase do tipo... A vida nao eh fcil, para ninguem, e vida a dois as vezes eh muito complicada... mas nao me arrependo nem um so segundo e faria tudo outra vez... agradeco muito a Deus e peco para que possamos ficar muito , muitos, muitos anos celebrando essa data.


Amo voce!
