Not exactly at lightening speed, or any speed for that matter :) but moving along at least. Faux goodies are done and almost ready to pack off to my sweet friends. I think I'll have that done by Monday, well in time for my Christmas deadline. :) :) :)
Have started working on my two little mosaic projects...first I had to dig out the items I wanted to mosaic, the birdhouse and the teapot. Then I had to gather some plates to smash. If there is a design I want to save I put clear tape over it to keep it together, then I place the plate between two paper plates and slide it into a bag. Then it's wham ! bam ! with a hammer. I keep checking to remove pieces that are just the right size and keep whacking until I have the sizes and shapes I want. Then I put them into a container ... tile nippers are very handy to help you get just the right shape you want. You can also buy small tiles and bits and pieces at craft stores if you don't want to whack your own or to supplement what you have.
If all goes well I will have some progress to share on Monday's Show and Tell.
Thanks for stopping by to check on me, I so appreciate you all.
My wish for you: Even if you can't move at lightening speed may you mosey along and enjoy the journey.
