Couldn't resist!

This is my treat for this month. I couldn't resist it as soon as I saw it. Hand made by 'Kim Smith', I bought this through her Etsy Shop. I know I should be buying presents for other people in in the run up to Christmas but it looks like I've just added myself on my list of people to buy for! Beautiful!

'Green with Envy'

Another one of this weekend's makes! I bought these lovely tiles months ago but haven't managed to sit down and make anything with them until now. The tiles are iridescent, so they have an emerald green base but reflect shades of blue, green, yellow and pink as they catch the light. I've just added the mirror to my Ebay Shop so I'll see what sort of feedback I get. Fingers crossed :)

Absense makes the heart grow fonder!

I can't believe I've been away from my blog for 3 months! At least my excuse is that I've been really busy with my mosaics. At the moment I'm spending ever spare minute I have on my craft - lots of orders have been keeping me busy!

I've had a quite a few commissions this month. These have been requests for other shapes and sizes in some existing designs. The 'Strawberries & Cream' mirror is for a little girl's birthday - hopefully it will look lovely in her newly decorated pink bedroom!

Also taking up my time recently has been painting. No, not canvasses (although I have got one sitting on my desk at the moment with a set of acrylics, reading for when I have a free afternoon on my hands). I've decided to turn one of the bedrooms in to a craft room, as my current set up is a bit of a disaster at the moment! The walls are almost painted and I've decided on a nice feature wall. It involves pink I'm proud to say, so I can see a nice pink mosaic creation emerging at some point to finish the room off. Pictures will follow...!
