Inspiration

There is a park of mosaic art about 30 to 60 minutes (depending on traffic) from where I live. It isn't very big at all, but if you love art and detail you can spend a couple of hours at this park finding art within art. You need to look at the big picture then… Continue reading Inspiration

Commitment issues

If you ask me for my favorite color, breakfast, food, movie, book, author, season, song, number, place, person, and so on you might be frustrated with my answer.

Under Construction

Pink by Canela Ajena Coming up with ideas for a mosaic project is not a problem. I have hundreds of them keeping me awake at night. My dilemma lies instead in something more irritating.

To save money, contribute to a more sustainable world, and to help put money back into the pockets of my local community as we financially suffer through this Covid "economy". It has been an exciting three weeks… Continue reading Thrifty Finds

Baby Blankets

I began to crotchet when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, a little more than 18 years ago. My first serious project was a baby blanket of a light pink color. I hadn't learned to finish a project or how to tighten my stitches. The end result was a very loose and large holed… Continue reading Baby Blankets

This month’s projects

Last week I moved my mosaic everything from my room to my office. I decluttered my desk first and had someone help me hang a shelf above my desk for my mosaic tile and parts. Then I moved the rest of my mosaic stuff to my desk. My room is now decluttered and cleaner. I… Continue reading This month’s projects

Project Mosaic Table

I have brainstormed Project Mosaic Table since January 2020 (maybe sooner). I bought the sander in April and earlier this month I finally came across the exact mosaic tile I want to use on it. The mosaic tile isn't made of recycled material, but my table will be refurbished so environmental I hope that counts… Continue reading Project Mosaic Table
