In The Studio - Part One

Busy week so far! Even though the infection in my ears are better, the right one is still stubbornly clogged. The weather has been very cold and there's been some rain ... it's not a great time of year to have sinus troubles. But then when is there a good time of year??

I've done some grouting and sealing on all the art pieces that needed it. I'll be sharing these on all my favorite social media sites, including the page on this blog this week, I hope. All are just about for ready. Yay!

Here's the pile before I got busy with grouting and sealing.





I've got the tray and one cross to finish up. I'll share those in their final stage on Friday.









If you see something you like, give a shout!

"Groovy Pear" on Society6

"Groovy Pear"

One of my first attempts at photographing a still life came about with some wooden fruit my Dad gave me to sell for him a few years ago. I fell in love with the shape of the pear and might end up covering them all of them at some point in mosaics but meanwhile, I have photo editing magic!

Below you'll find a small selection of gift ideas for the upcoming holidays. I think "Groovy Pear" framed would look really cool in a contemporary kitchen. Love the pillow cover and tote bag too! And laptop covers are brilliant ways to change your mood; this print is especially groovy. Truthfully, I just love it no matter how it's displayed!

Monday - Promo Blast!

FREE SHIPPING Within US - Etsy Mosaic Jewelry - 3 Piece Set - Sophia - Ceramic Mini Tiles - Bracelet, Earrings, Pendant - $125.00

Blasting the Promo from Etsy today!

My Mosaic 3 Piece Jewelry Set is named "Sophia" in honor of the amazing Sophia Loren. This set could make you feel warm and sexy ... possibly even make you speak in Italian. ;)


I adore Mid-Century Modern design and always feel the finished product represents that style when I use them. Mini tiles in ceramic are used in each piece. The bracelet has squares and oblong shapes, earrings are triangles and pendant is circles with one very small square in the center. These were made using tweezers and a magnifying glass so I could see where they were being placed within each area. Definitely a labor of love.



The pendant comes with a necklace. All jewelry is wrapped in tissue paper and placed in an organza bag perfect for gift giving.

Don't forget the added bonus of FREE SHIPPING Within US!

In The Studio - Part One

Unfortunately my crafts table is covered with dust this week. I've been dealing with a sinus infection that has gone into both of my ears (a weak spot since childhood) and I've done nothing but try to keep myself balanced when standing mostly. One ear is completely swollen and closed, the other is healing now so that's a good sign.

However, today I'll just say good morning and I hope everyone has a nice day. Look for a post on Saturday but until then, I'm headed back to Netflix with the volume up way too loudly.

'Lemon Graffiti' on Society6

'Lemon Graffiti'
Art Print

This print was a fairly new editing technique for me. I've combined colors and textures to get this effect. If I could draw, this is what I'd create.

This art print is quite versatile. It looks fantastic in all forms, as shown below. As an art print it will add interest to any room room or take it with you as a tote bag or mug.

Think of those on your holiday shopping list that could use something new and unusual. New college student, new homeowner, newly married. A teacher, a new Mom or your favorite coworker.

Give the gift of art.
