I’m in awe of artists that can create everyday.
If I could find that daily inspiration, I’m pretty sure I would too.
Problem is … I can’t force the artist within, I have to coax her, like a lost dog on the street.
For me … there has to be a catalyst and that catalyst has to have friends that want to play nice together.
When they do … Oh, what a feeling 😉 … it has to be better than a runner’s high!
Unfortunately, I can’t seem to run far enough to get inspiration to kick in … it’ll come to me when it’s time and still learning that the joy is in the journey;)

It takes more time to come up with a mosaic tile design than it does to glue it down.
Problem is the materials (go through your junk drawers and jewelry boxes) change as you go along … some pieces make the cut … others will not. This is not the time to get discouraged.
If I’m on a roll and the pieces are falling into place … it takes me about an hour to glue a single light switch cover.
If I’m not on a roll … I’ve already started gluing something else.
The gypsy quote is a pendant that I’ve had since high school … and it went from there.
added a little iridescent tile and a purple glass heart …
Going to glue ball and chain to the outer edge, after the grout dries.
Maybe you should too.
