    I really love this series. It just shows you the resiliance of people who keep doing what they love, regardless of the ups and down of economy, unrest, disasters. They just keep going. It's a beautiful thing to witness.

    150 tiles (app 10mยฒ) for 31โ‚ฌ is a joke! Buying in Europe you may find the easy patterns for ~40โ‚ฌ/mยฒ. Another example how "modern" trade is killing craftmenship.

    You know, I wish people would actually band together to preserve and promote craft/artistry like this. I want to believe I'm not nearly alone in the desire to purchase things made by master craftsmen instead of cheap, Chinese mass produced crap from Home Depot and Lowe's. But I can never seem to FIND people who do this anywhere near me. I understand Etsy was launched as a way for craftspeople to promote their work, but I never see anything like this on there.

    We have more important problems and things to address than skills dying out. By definition if it dies out people don't need it. We need to worry about crime, life quality, and economic equality.

    John 14:6 KJV, "Jesus saith, I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." 1 Peter 2:24 NIV, "He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed." John 3:16 KJV, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life". Romans 3:23-24 NIV, "...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus". John 8:12 KJV, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life". Jesus is the only WAY to God, the TRUTH of salvation, and the Breath/Bread of LIFE. ACCEPT Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Sins separate us from God because He's Holy. All sins will be forgiven and erased through faith in Christ Jesus. God โ™ฅ you, is alive, merciful, faithful, truthful, and is waiting with His arms wide open FOR YOU! For Jesus did not come to establish a religion, but to become a mediator between God and men. Through the Grace of God, Jesus was given to us by paying the price at the Cross at Calvary. Repent and confess from your sins to Jesus and ask Him to forgive you. A sinner cannot save a sinner, only a sinless person can. That sinless Being is Jesus Christ Himself. Through the faith in Christ Jesus, the sick was healed; everywhere He went, He healed the blind, the mute, the deaf, the demon-possessed, raised the dead, as well as performed many miracles; He also walked on water, turned water into wine, calmed the storm with His command, and was raised up from the dead. Miracles are still being seen today! Jesus is our helper, our healer, our refuge/protection, and our strength for when time gets tough. God is standing and knocking at the door waiting for your answer right now because THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS COMING. โคโคโคโคโคโคโคโค
