In The Studio - Wednesday

Wow have I been busy this week!! I worked on putting mosaics on crosses and even did some grouting. I have more grouting to do but I'm fairly sure I'll get most if not all of it done by the end of the week. Good for me!!

This cross is part of a custom order.
All sparkly and waiting for grout.

Freshly grouted and STILL sparkly.
One of these crosses will finish up the custom order. I'm allowing the customer to choose from them once they are all grouted.

Positive this one will be grouted in black.

This cross will definitely get white grout.

This one will also get white grout.

This candle holder has been sitting and waiting for a while for grout. It needs one more good cleaning and then I can get some photos of it for Etsy.

Really love the process of slapping grout all over glass, mirror, dish shards and tiles too. I got my fingers in this stuff this time. I love getting messy!

Grout was still wet and there was a lot to clean off at this point but I am very happy with the results. Look for it soon in my Etsy shop.

Let's Go Shopping!

Mosaic Stained Glass, Trivet, Candle Holder, Octagon, Mosaic Mirror, Earth Tones, For The Home, Gift Idea, Wedding, Anniversary - 6.5 Inches - $38.25

A plain, boring mirrored candle holder and/or trivet is now a piece of original mosaic art! A simple design in waves of stained glass in orange, amber, yellow and red weave throughout this 6-1/2 inch trivet. Felt pads on the bottom to protect your table or other surfaces.








The reflective qualities in this are outstanding. You can see from the photos the way the triangles are shown throughout the mirror underneath the glass. In bright light you have an amazing light show! The last photo shows how the mosaic looked before grout, still as a work-in-progress.








This mirrored trivet looks great sitting on a table with a lit candle in the center - reflections go everywhere. This would make a great wedding gift or housewarming gift. Give the gift of handmade art to those you love especially yourself!

In The Studio - Friday

As promised on Wednesday, here is the next project I'm working on.

This is a 3 inch candle holder. I'm gifting this to my daughter's friend who is hosting an event very soon. This will be grouted only days before her event. It'll be a close one, but I can do it!



Once this butterfly is finished, I have one of two custom ordered crosses to start on. This one is going to be done in whites, silvers and golds.


I haven't decided what the other one will look like yet. Be sure to check back to see the progress of all of the mosaics I've been working on lately.

Have a great weekend!

In The Studio - Wednesday

What a glorious week! I've completed my recycled mosaic as far as getting all the dish tiles and other goodies on it. It's waiting for grout. I have a large grout pile forming. It's safe to say I'll be grouting within a week or so.







Originally I had thought about putting tess on the bottom as well but it needs to be sturdy to hold a lit candle. I will share the grouting experience as I suspect it will take days.

Friday I'll be sharing the next project plus the one after that! I love being busy!!

Let's Go Shopping!

I'm in the midst of redoing my listings; adding extra photos to them now that we have 10 slots available plus adding my Instagram link within each listing. My attention span is minimal during these hot days in July, so it's a slow process for me. I hope to get them all organized and updated by the end of this week.

Please take a look at the featured item I'm sharing here from my Etsy shop and enjoy!

Lotus Mosaic Wall Art, Mosaic Wall Hanging, Bohemian Art, Hippie Decor, For The Home, Wedding, Birthday, Great Gift, Anniversary, Retirement - $50.00 USD

One of my all-time favorite designs to draw and make into mosaics is the lotus. This mosaic has stained glass in iridescent pink, pieces of a broken lamp in pink, green and purple, some bright green glass tiles, stained glass in green, mirror, ball chain, and small plastic flowers. Lots to see in this 8 x 10 inch wall art.

Bohemian in nature, this has a soothing quality to it, especially when near sunlight. It is very sparkly and shines brightly making even the most gloomy of days extra special and will make you smile. Meditate with it near you to feel the good vibrations. Namaste!




I couldn't decide which way I wanted it to hang, which is why there are no photos of it hanging on the wall. It looks great vertically as well as horizontally. Therefore, there is a hanger and hardware taped to the back of this piece waiting for your decision. You can request I add it before I send it out to you and in which direction you'd like it or the hardware can be included for you. It's not too difficult to attach the hardware and string once you've seen it in person. Don't forgot to include this info when you purchase this beauty. Thank you!

In The Studio - Wednesday

The fun continues with my "Mr Coffee Candle Holder" mosaic. It's been a slow process, maybe only working for 1/2 an hour in the morning and then after dinner about the same amount of time. I can work in the heat of the day if I wanted to, but I don't. And this piece is for me so it doesn't matter how long it takes. It is super fun to work on, though!

This was where I left off a few days ago.
I didn't get back to this one until yesterday, which means I had a 4 day break from it. That's why I didn't write a blog post on Friday. There really wasn't much to show or share.

Now there's only been a little more added but I'm going slowly and truly enjoying the journey on this mosaic. My breathing slows down as I concentrate on each piece in my hand and where it should be placed. I find listening to New Age music is good on some days, while Classic Rock music works on other days.



These were taken Tuesday afternoon. Hopefully I'll keep going and share the progress on Friday.

Meanwhile, I'm happy to report that I've made a few sales on Etsy and got a custom order from a good extended family member! Woo-hoo! Believe it or not the custom order is for Christmas presents! Yikes!! I can't believe how fast the major holidays are creeping up on us. While I listen to the grandbabies splashing around in the pool below me when I work at my table, it's hard to believe that the seasons will be changing again soon.



I finally packed up all the reward mosaics for the fundraiser (that debt has been completely paid off) and they are shipping out today! Yay!!

Such a pretty sight to me ... 3 mosaics lovingly packed and heading on out to the folks who donated to the fundraiser last year.

Let's Go Shopping!

Mosaic Tree Flower Pot, Mosaic Tree, Vase, Stained Glass Mosaic, Tree, Pine Tree Mosaic, Woodland Decor, For The Home, Anniversary, Wedding - $40.00 USD

We love trees! Stained Glass pine trees surround this pot. Hand cut green and brown stained glass create the trees. I placed two large trees on either side and a lot of small stick-like trees around them. I made you a forest just like a good Earth Mother should! I loved the color of this pot a lot and didn't want to cover the entire thing in glass that would take away from it. Using instead clear glass called tempered or crash glass was the answer. You can still see the beautiful green color of the pot from the outside.



I would suggest putting a self-contained flower pot or small tree within this one, as there is no hole at the bottom for drainage. This has more uses than even I can think of. Put it on a desk and let it hold scissors, rulers, pens, pencils. Place it in the kitchen and use it for wooden spoons and spatulas. It fits in a bathroom holding rolled up washcloths or brushes and combs. The uses are endless. It could hold remote controls for your TV room, place flowers in it and use it as a display in the center of your table.


We love useful and decorative art. Perfect!!

This flower pot is handmade with love by EarthMotherMosaics.
