Happy Wednesday! It’s been an odd sort of week but I have been doing just a little mosaic work, so that means it was a successful one!

I am almost finished editing photos of my older mosaics to list on Etsy and IndieMade. I’m not used to doing so many at one time. It is tedious work but very rewarding when the photos come out well. Not so much fun when they don’t. It seems that some days all I do is sit at the computer and use the photo editor program and watch grandchildren … I think I skipped a few meals too although that’s not a big deal. I’ve been known to do that when I’m working. I’m getting through them and finding great enjoyment seeing them photographed with a better eye and a better camera. I only have a few more to work on and consider listing but I’m on the fence about listing most of them. There is one, in particular, that I really want to get photographed and listed but a few others can wait. I think I’m ready to switch gears again and get back to creating some more new mosaics! Hazzah!!

And speaking of new mosaics … I have been at the crafts table this week. I’ve missed it and enjoy my time when I’m there! I made a stained glass sun catcher and started in on a small candle holder which I finished up yesterday. They should get grouted and hopefully listed within the next few days.

Green, blue and lilac are the sun catcher’s colors and greens and blue for the candle holder. I often use what is around me. Soothing colors are my choice right now, especially ones that remind me of water or a cool forest. These colors prove that! I’ve put those aside so I can work on a more intense, colorful piece, but I do love them.  Yesterday while looking for the blue I wanted to use in the candle holder, I found a slew of aquamarine glass I didn’t know I still had. Look for that beautiful color soon on a vase and/or sun catcher. The glass is now considered vintage since it was given to me in the large batch of glass I got a few years ago. I learned recently that most of it was from the 1980’s. It’s gorgeous!

Today, I’m feeling pulled towards the 3-D elephant so that means for a few days, or maybe a week, that’s what I’ll be doing until I feel the need towards making more things to list. It is always an adventure to discover where I’ll be headed creatively each day.

New listings are happening almost daily on each site thanks to all these old mosaics I’m ready to part with. I have given myself some time to look at each site and see what catches my eye. My favorite on Etsy today is this one:

“Many Moons”

Over on IndieMade, my favorite newest listing is this one:

“Flower Power”

Both of them are real oldies but goodies made between 2006 and 2009. These are the ones I have had a little trouble letting go. But now I am ready, willing and able!

Okay, that rather large goofy looking elephant is beckoning me from the crafts table and I must go pay it some attention! It would be nice to see a lot more work done on that within the next few days. Wish me luck!

Enjoy your weekend.

A photograph taken by my cousin of a lily in her pond inspired this piece. It was a very nice white lily with yellow in the center when she shared it with me. I decided to adapt it into a mosaic and make it my own as an abstract piece of mosaic art.

In the Studio

Happy Wednesday!

It’s been so hot here that I haven’t done as much as I had hoped I would this past week. But I did do a few things and will share them here.

I have been busy taking updated pictures of old mosaics from between 2006-2010. These are the ones I mentioned before, saying I didn’t feel were quite good enough to list but also feel like I’m ready to let them go. So, I’ve started listing these on IndieMade and a few on Etsy too and sharing the listings every day that I add more to the IndieMade shop. 3 a day! And there’s still so many to photograph, look at and list! MUCH more! I’ve done quite a few mosaics over the years and I don’t seem to be slowing down either. You can find the link for IndieMade and Etsy at the top of the blog. Head on over and take a look at what I’ve got listed so far.

I started putting glass and mirror on the elephant, but lost momentum almost as soon as I began. Here’s what it looks like right now:

Lots to do and I’m looking forward to it! It will take a while but I’ve got all the time I need to finish it. I’ve learned that the muse comes and goes and I try to follow along and keep up!

I made a scrap glass vase which was a delight to do. It had been way too long since I’ve done one and I always say after I do one that I need to do another one. Just look at how the stained glass sparkles through the vase!

I also redid a trivet by adding stained glass and grouting it again. I like it!

And I finished and grouted the wooden key holder although it still needs finishing up with a bit of paint and some hooks. As always, I love doing sun designs!

Still needs painting and the hooks added for keys and hanging.

I had a little fun one day with paints. My designs are limited to geometric shapes but I’m okay with that because I love them so much!

I’m not sure what the next week will bring but I’m fairly sure I’ll find myself listing more mosaics on IndieMade and Etsy!

I’ve been doing the Photo A Day Challenge for July and enjoying it tremendously. Finding something to take a photo of every day is great practice and my photography skills have improved already only after 18 days. I share these photos on Facebook, flickr, Pinterest and Blogger. Once in a while if the colors are awesome or there’s a design element to my photo, I share it on my tumblr blog too. If you are interested in looking at them, check one of those places! Here is the one I did yesterday that I really like a lot.

#17. my addiction – #photoadayjuly

Pistachio nuts and vintage/retro/colorful dishes … it was a toss up as to which was more of an addiction, so I decided to pick them both!

Today’s challenge is “plate”. My goodness it isn’t possible for a collector to pick just one. I love them all! Here’s what I settled on:
