I had a really nice day today. A friend came over, and we spent the day doing mosaics. We did a mosaic workshop about three years ago, and every couple of months (not often enough) we get together and spend a day making things. I have been working on a number and address sign to put on the outside wall of our house for about two years now, the project turned out to take a lot longer than I thought it would. It's been one of those things lying by the wayside, gathering dust - but today I FINALLY finished it! I still have to attach it to the wall and grout it, so I'll show you what it looks like when it's up.
I also worked on a little flower pot, which you can see in the photo. It still has to be grouted, so it doesn't doesn't look all that great at the moment. The grout is the magic ingredient that turns even the most dodgy looking project into something that you end up feeling quite good about.
I felt good afterwards, like I had achieved something, just something small...and I even managed to sort out my mosaic supplies and store them together all in one place. Now it's just the rest of my craft supplies I have to worry about :) I am a great collector of things that I plan to make something with one day. Chaos rules supreme, I don't even know what I've got lurking around, piled up in corners and hibernating in dark cupboards. All in good time, but sooner rather than later!!!
