Another recent project
Forever ago (okay, maybe a year or so), I purchased a cute amulet bag kit on EBay from Sassy Art Goddess . I recently finished beading it and am so pleased with how it turned out. I don't think I used any of the beads that came with the kit, but that's okay - I'm sure they will be perfect for another project in the future. This was my first little leather bag and I rather enjoyed it. I love to bead around faces and this artist creates beautiful faces. I also love to bead fringe, making this project particularly fun for me!
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
