Blog Giveaway-Brush Booklet


A giveaway for one of the little booklets I have been making from old brush practice papers. This one has a quote from my mentor Jenny Hunter Groat who passed away this year. To be entered in the giveaway, please share a favorite quote. And this is important, you must put your email in the comment so I can send you a message if you are the winner. Entries will close tomorrow, December 13 at midnight.

There are brush booklets in my etsy shop, and I will add more next week.

It truly would be an honour to actually see, to touch, to own and to treasure this offering. My favourite quote for today is:

"Suppose we did our work
like the snow, quietly, quietly,
leaving nothing out."

Wendell Berry's entire poem "Like Snow" in "Leavings: Poems"

Hi, Susan, thank you for this opportunity! Here is one of my favorite quotes (I have a multitude of favorites, but this one seems so appropriate for this time of year):

Go into yourself and see how deep the place is from which your life flows. -- Rilke

Your new "brush books" are just wonderful!

What a rich challenge--I love reading the quotes from others above. The first one that sprang to mind when I read your post is from Hillel, a Jewish scholar:

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then, what am I?"

Thank you for sharing your gorgeous books with us.

These are two of my favorites:

"That so few now dare to be eccentric, marks the chief danger of the time." —John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

and (good for the coming snow and the quiet that it brings):

"Silence is the medium in which great things fashion themselves."
—Thomas Carlyle

Thanks for the game.

Susan,

"There are also times in life when a person has to rush off in pursuit of hopefulness."
— Jean Giono quoted in The Music of Time by John S. Dunne

So here's to hoping I win a beautiful brush booklet. ) )
