Rhonda Markham

Thank you for the lovely quote--a gentle reminder that, often, saying nothing while giving a smile is the best advice and support one can give...Rhonda, the neighbor~~~


Love the book.
I have one similar...made from an old book cover. My quotes have landed there..and I am happy with it.

I am also one who continues to tweak things after I "think" they are finished. You know...just one more ribbon, button, piece of lace...a little stitch here, one there.

Thanks for the quote today. I had been thinking of something similar...to remind myself to speak lovely, uplifting things.

Enjoy the weekend, dear Rebecca.

These beautiful, as I find all of your art work. Your pieces seem to have so much meaning and they really touch my heart. I have a similar journal and just didn't know what to do with it. It seemed to special to use. Silly, I know. Collecting words of wisdom is a good thing to do with it.

I went "to the city" as my 4 year old son calls it to purchase the new Sommerset Life issue. I really love your traveling art companion. Thank you again and again for sharing your heart with us.


oh wow....i'm so inspired.
i've had my "P" journal sitting right here, smack dab in front of me for weeks....i've been trying to decide just what special 'thing' to use it for...a quote journal
i'm so excited
& i think i might just add today's quote from you as my first entry.



I am so happy to have stumbled upon your blog. Your writing is simply delightful!

Whitney Johnson

That is a wonderful quote. I think I'll encourage my four young teenagers to memorize it... :)right now they have it all backwards!

I love that quote. What a great way to keep ourselves from those lovely stuck-my-foot-in-my-mouth moments.The word book is wonderful-excellent concept and beautifully (as always) implemented.


Here's a quote for you by me, "My thoughts are scattered in drawers with my collections".(Nathalie Thompson) I should really organize them into a book or two.. I only have SEVERAL started! Your Mr. Serious is a wonderful mess of pages.


Lovely quote book and what better than to have Mr serious guard it's content!


Hi Rebecca...I just read about you in "Artful Blogging"...I'm glad to have found your blog. I'm fairly new to "Blogland", and am realizing that there's so much out there, and it's actually a little overwhelming.
I'm feeling like I will need to stick to the blogs I really love, otherwise I will be at my computer all day! You are definitely on my list that I'd like to visit on a regualar basis...Love your quote for today!...Take care, Katie


I'm wondering, did Sai Baba happen to be reading Philippians 4:8 and Ephesians 4:29? :D

Your blog is so sweet.


I love that little book I need to make something that will hold my daughters art journals and just want to grab that little book of yours and put them all in it.
Thanks for sharing such inspiration.


You're such a inspiration to me! Thanks for sharing your projects and your quotes. I have a similar book (and my "special stuff" box) that I've decorated with a bit of everything. I love my book, I write pretty much anything in it...from quotes I find and love (even quotes from my children) to stories and poems...favorites,etc. It's a journal of sorts. Don't you just love your book?

Oh! LOVE IT! I'm not a journal keeper but I have always been facinated by quotes....will have to do this one! Thank you so much for the inspiration!


I love your idea of the book, and what a great quote!


Here's a quote I love:

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance"

~Aristotle, 384-322 BC~


Hi Rebecca--Love "Mr. Serious"! I think I will copy your idea and make myself a "words book". I have little scraps of paper, magazines, junk mail corners, tucked absolutely EVERYWHERE...that would be a fun thing to have...Love your quote--My Pastor did a whole message on the acrostic THINK--
Before you say it, is it T-true?, H-helpful?,I-inspiring?, N-necessary?, K-kind?
I have taught it to my kids and we try to live by that word!
Love your blog, Rebecca! You are an inspriation!

Hi Rebecca, Ilove your quote. I have saved this quote from the Little House series of books: "If wisdom's ways you wisely seek, five things observe with care: to whom you speak, of whom you speak and how and when and where" - Ma Ingalls. :)

Okay, that book looks so yummy...I love everything about it. Reminds me of an old cozy quilt...Kara


oh I love this...you just find the neatest things to do with old photo's. Wish I would have been here soon as I missed out on them in etsy...maybe you'll make more?!!!!!



Love your quote book! Beautiful.


What a wonderful "keeper of words" book you created! I'm sorry that I missed them when they were available in your etsy shop.Thank you so much for sharing a photo of it as well as the encouraging quote!

Actually, the first two questions of the quote are ones that I often ask my children when I hear them speaking in a dishonorable way to one another...it's such a great reminder for them (and myself) to be careful with our words. :)
