12 - Multilingual Positive-Message Bookmarks with English translations (four are completely in English)

* happy words -- happy thoughts -- happy you!

Each is 2" x 6" in a cellophane envelope; package contains a peel-and-stick magnet which you can cut up, so you can convert them into magnets! Antique gold chainette tassel included. Material is ViaStone paper alternative, 60% limestone and made with no trees, water or bleaching. It's a super-green yet durable and waterproof :-).

The perfect gift for the cosmopolitan person in your life, or just for any person who could use more happy in their life!

Started making these fifteen years ago when I lived near the sea in Swampscott, MA and used the local flowers and grass to make collages to accompany these beautiful words. So much power in a few words to lift the spirit and help a person just keep on keeping on!

Love world cultures, so continue to collect sayings from every culture I can, as I can. This collection includes:

1 - Arabic - learned from a Palestinian businessman I met in Vinnin Square, Salem, MA. He gave me this poignant saying, which reaches right into the heart.
2 - Spanish - real perseverance-boosters! "No hay mal" - Gloria Estefan included this traditional saying in a song, but it's true outside Miami, too!
2 - Chinese - Palest ink - treasure the "now;" the saying about failure really insists that there be a comma after a fall, not a period.
2 - Yiddish - one ("If I try") from myjewishlearning.com; the second, by Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman, z"l, was something she just said one day. I was blessed to have been her assistant for three years, and she could be counted on to come out with quotable funny, wise, practical guidance, on a regular basis!
1 - Greek - a commission for a friend; delighted to discover this encouragement to keep questioning and dreaming.
4 - English:
* caught the quote by Chris Gethard on one of his Beautiful Anonymous podcast episodes; this quote blew me away. He kindly gave Happy Notes permission to use it.
* Rabbi Heschel's daughter, Susannah, a professor at Dartmouth, generously gives Happy Notes permission to use her father's quote. It evokes a lot of misty-eyed nods.

The bookmark I purchased, was exactly what I expected. It is simple and pure in its design, which allows the works to speak loudly. The seller seems to be a wonderful person. I genuinely wish her success in her business
