Betty's Philosophies

 What I Want Weaver's Cottage to be --
Express yourself --Tell me who you are and what you want --How you feel and what you have to say.
But do it in a subtle way with your particular form of art or craft.

Let it cry for you - Bubble over with laughter - but -
Do it because it is so good to be alive and free and able --
