Finally got around to organizing all my web stuff and realized that I haven’t been around these parts since last October and … could it be that the last thing I sat down to create was the mosaic tile mirror I made for Alice’s birthday? How can that be?
Shameful and the studio is a mess. But time waits for no woman and I have to minimize my distractions, so I can focus on the feeds my soul part, again, starting Saturday. :)
The shop was closed, again, so Renee knocked on the side door and said, “we’ve been here before … you were closed and we see that you’re closed again but … I just have to have one of the pieces in the front window … can we please come in?
They were both like little kids in a candy store and then Renee said, “I must have a piece of your art because I can feel all of the love and the light shining through.” Me too.
Touched beyond belief and all I can say is that this big beautiful universe, wearing a straw hat, is hard at work on my behalf.
I was flipping through the lessons of becoming an Everyday Genius and I immediately received an email about the very same book.
Coincidence? I think not!
Whether you check out the book or not, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that it might be the book you want to write, or the business you want to build, or the blog you want to start, or the art you want to create.
Whatever it is, ask yourself the question: Am I willing to work hard to bring that ideal vision to life?
HARD WORK being the operative word(s). That means reading the directions all the way through and working through the roadblocks that weren’t in your original vision. Probably because you didn’t have a plan in the first place … you just saw a cool ending. (deep thoughts … from personal experience with Mara) Think it all the way through, before you throw money at it.
“There is surely no point in being a person of vision unless we have the will to act. Daydreams and inklings about taking our personal mission seriously must be translated into action or be lost in the dust of “could have but didn’t.”” ~ Mary-Elaine Jacobsen, Psy.D. from The Gifted Adult
Could have. Should have. Would have.

The vintage window was a gift from my sister friend, Tilly Evan Jones … I think it sat around for a couple of years, until I finally decided to glue a bulk of my vintage glass collection to it.
It never ceases to amaze me how magically the pieces fit together and as an added bonus … it fit perfectly inside the guest bedroom window.
All you need is a sturdy window (or frame), mosaic tile & glass tools, safety glasses, vintage glass dishes (or otherwise), random glass pieces and e6000 adhesive to be glued in a well ventilated area.
FYI … Just so you know … when using e6000 adhesive … once you place the glass on the glass, you can shift it a bit but basically it’s over … live with it.
WARNING: ALWAYS wear safety glasses when cutting glass or tile and as a FYI … I do not recommend this project for kids.
