In case you missed a few posts, I'm planning on doing a holiday craft fair in November at a local church. My plan is to mosaic all 25, 6 x 9 inch mdf crosses, that I purchased for this event. Wish me luck!
Yesterday I did some searching and found the perfect colored tiles to go with the second cross I made and showed a photo of in yesterday's post. I'll share photos of it once it's complete.
Not all of them will have a focal point as #1 does. Some may be filled with dish shards, some will have things like broken earrings placed here and there. Everything I enjoy about mosaics is being used in these crosses. I might even dot paint a few!
I've set up a folder on flickr for this project. If you missed seeing one or two as I go along, bookmark the site so you can go back and see how it's going. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mosaic_queen2008/
I'm still dealing with what we call "the sick" because when my grandson was 3 and I told him he gave me his cold and I was sick, he said: "Nana, I'm sorry I gave you the sick". How cute is that?! Anyway, my crafting time has been very limited. I did manage to get started on the newest mosaic yesterday afternoon when the cold meds finally kicked in. I try to do something every day because it makes me happy.
News on the Christmas in July events: The Partner Auction at tophatter.com is coming up on July 10th at 7 PM. Sign up and become a member if you're interested in bidding on some of my jewelry, home decor and wall art. I'll be there to answer any questions anyone may have about any of the featured items. As soon as they are up to be viewed, I'll share the link. I do believe you get a small preview before the auction to look around and join it. I've never done this before but I know I'm going to have fun! I'm always up for new and exciting things like this! Woo-hoo!!
And the CIJ Event on Etsy starts on July 11th and runs through July 21st. There will be a Coupon Code for this event + coupons available to those who purchase anything from my shop for our Black Friday/Cyber Monday Event at the end of the year! Nice!
And now it's time to head back to bed for a bit. I'm fortunate that I don't have to push through the day unless I'm needed by the fam. That is a blessing for sure! A few family members have "the sick" too, so we're taking care of each other as family's do.
