Wise words

I am addicted to Pinterest..... terrible? No..... !
To me it is a galaxy of ideas.
But I am not a very active facebooker. Anyway,
 one of my friends had this to share today
and I think it is very true.

                               Like if God is the source of your STRENGTH.
A friend of mine's dad passed away last night, another
friend's mom is terminal. My mom and dad are both 86.
We can't all be strong all the time.
Keep well,
keep strong or do a good job of crying!. x

Pamper Hamper

Bath salt "tea bags", a Lemon grass atomizer and a fragrant body scrub.
These are the products you will be making during the class on Saturday.
Then you will decorate all of them so it will make the perfect gift.
  You will use lace tape, seam binding, doilies, bling,
tissue tape, heat seal tea bags and tissue paper.
There will also be.....
Soy wax candles for sale!!
Still one of my favourite things to make,
because it smells so gorgeous.
See you on Saturday, we will be mixing and shaking and blinging!

La Vie book - Part 9

Page 16 and inside back cover.

 Another greeting card from Elise Grey Collections,
a flower and brad from Making Memories,
some flower trim and an angel dangle complete page 16.

I used the back of a greeting card from Cavania Cards 
as the focal point for my inside back cover.
The front of the card was used as part of my book's front cover.
Also on the page are ephemera by K & Company,
a metal quote by Making Memories and scraps of patterned paper.

La Vie
 Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is costly, care for it.
Life is wealth, keep it.
Life is love, enjoy it.
Life is mystery, know it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
After a few glasses of really good red wine,
a friend and I decided to translate the La Vie quote into Afrikaans.
Here is our version of it:

La Vie
 Die lewe is ’n moerse kans
Die lewe is die dood se dans;
Die lewe is ’n fuifparty
Die lewe is ’n spoelgety;
Die lewe is wel pragtig
Die lewe is ’n willewragtig;
Die lewe is ’n blye lied
Die lewe is ’n spergebied;
Die lewe is beslis begrens
Die lewe bly ’n blye wens;
Die lewe is die hart se seer
Die lewe is probeer maar weer;
Die lewe is die grys tristes
Die lewe is die runderpes;
Die lewe is ’n avontuur
Die lewe duur van uur tot uur;
Die lewe is die lewe!

(Vry vertaal uit die Frans met apologie aan Moeder Theresa)
