Here are the newly grouted pendants and the shelf I am working on. I like the greens in this shelf. I think I will continue the poplar leaves on the inside of this shelf and then perhaps do pines on the top. What do you think of this concept?

The LAST Monday in January! And I am glad.

Today is the last Monday in January and I am so glad. We are just that much closer to Spring which also makes me so happy! Right now it is snowing big fluffy Judge Parker kind of snow flakes. The kind of snow flakes that look a bit like boulders as they fall.

Here are some pendants that I hope to grout today. I changed the purple-ish red heart to teal in the one pendant as I thought the lime green triangle at the bottom was too jarring next to the red.

Also here are the end caps of a shelf that I am mosaicing. The perimeter of these popular leaves is made up of small seed beads. I hope that they don't fall off when I grout!

Monday MLK Jr Day!

I love this holiday of service to the community! When I worked in Minneapolis the students had this day off to go and do community service. Such a good idea. Some, I am sure just went shopping or stayed at home, but many students did do service work through their churches.

Here is the finished Fibannachi Wave vase as well as my 5 pendants. The heart shaped one on the far right I gave to my Aunt Lolly for her Birthday. She is my favorite aunt.

A very BUSY Tuesday, at least for me!

Today I work BOTH jobs. I will be so tired when I get home, in fact I am tired right now as I worked last night until 10.

I grouted yesterday. The wave vase took me entirely too long! Each small triangle needed to be buffed and polished. I finally finished this within an hour of needing to leave to go to work.

The five pendants look great, I think. The only step left is the resin.

THe other image is of a Valentine Mirror. I thought (of course!) that i would be able to complete the glueing of the objects on this, but I ran out of time. THe white dots are a build up of glue to add on the crystals (on the right side of the photo in the jar lid).

Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, right?

Today I will go into work and right now I really cannot see doing this. Of course I WILL go in, but right now, I am just not feeling "it". AT ALL. Oh well, I will go in and try to be perky!

This is what I have been working on the last few days. I finished attaching the pieces to the vase with the Fibanachi wave as well as these pendants. I had an absolutely WONDERFUL day off on Thursday, getting so much accomplished! Made me so happy.
