I started this one 8 days ago, and have struggled getting it finished - creativity level 0. I wasn't happy with it at all, apart from the two large circles, and came very close to pulling it all up and starting again. My daughter helped me sort out some colour combos I wasn't satisfied with... Continue Reading →
I always want to be working on something, so as soon as one is finished, another is begun. This design has been popular so didn't have to think much about the design, however it's the colours that take me time to decide on. I've already changed the petals from orange to a blue/green stained glass....
I've been asked by a friend's daughter to make a simple mosaic - a pineapple with a white background on a circular backing. I've used white iridised tiles around the border, venetian glass tiles for the background, glass gems for the border of the pineapple, and stained glass to fill in the pineapple and to...

I love this challenge as I find quotes simple yet effective ways of communicating inspiring, empowering and what can be life changing, ways of thinking and being. So I thank Rory from A Guy Called Bloke and Doodlepip Adventures for again nominating me in a topic he knew is in the realms of my thinking... Continue Reading →
This is the latest mosaic I've been working on. It will be sold with a mirror in it, not a tuxedo cat!! I love how our boy, Ji (J-eye), took to this frame! He was determined not to get up and out, and I ended up just taking the frame up from around him. He... Continue Reading →
I'd wanted to make a mosaic in memory of Nita and was inspired by a recent photo of a pale flowering Iris Nita had given to her son and daughter in law. Nita loved her garden and flowers, and I've included her flowering iris on the bottom left. I wanted the flowers to be bright... Continue Reading →

A down to earth and humorous reminder that there is always good in our lives – we just need to be open to seeing it and accepting it is there.
Thank you to Robyn from The Robin Bird’s Nest
Sundance sent this to me.
Not only does she accept the good in her life, she appreciates it!
I am quite delightful. (smirks while typing)
Embrace the good in your world in whatever form it arrives.
Sometimes those things you least expect, or question the presence of, turn out to be what you most need.
You say “exasperating” I say “fucking delight” either way there is good. It’s win-win!
Occasionally, life is rough.
We’re so focused on the trouble, or pain, all manner of ick that hits us upside the head. Even when we’re swimming around in the ick till our fingers are pruney, there is good in our lives, in the world.
All you have to do is open your eyes.
There is a quote:
When you look for the good in others you discover the best in yourself.
But, when you’re up to up to your…

https://youtu.be/otgbBDaZzCw Today I was watching a documentary, The Champions, about the dogs that were rescued from NRL player, Michael Vick and his dog fighting ring. My daughter asked me how I could watch shows like that because they're so sad. Yes, they are very sad. Learning about what those poor dogs endured, and the fate... Continue Reading →
https://youtu.be/s0rPcpvTygw As talked about in the above clip, without gratitude we can't really find true happiness. Plans and goals for the future are important but we must never lose sight of what we have in the present. Keeping that in mind, today I'm grateful for: my daughter sharing with me what's been going on... Continue Reading →
I was going to skip this today, but decided that the days I find it harder to think of the things I'm grateful for are the days I need to practice gratitude the most. So, opening my mind, today I'm grateful for: my daughter getting home safely after going out with friends hot showers supportive... Continue Reading →
