Bits and pieces of mosaic

My first mosaic I did was done in high school, a project I loved and thought I had a knack for, but never did again... until last year. When I was pregnant I was forever inspired by anything and everything I saw. I had tons of projects planned in my head that I wanted to do but didn't know when, where or how to start and like my usual self I was procrastinating, until I walked into a tile shop. Joy! I knew where to start.

 My crazy cool little family and I live in a small town where I don't have much choice of tiles. So with a small budget and a small variety of tiles to choose from I came up with this- my first mosaic since school days.
Then came Cape Town... I had found my mosaic rapture. I happened to stumble across Mosaic Works, a shop with everything a mosaic artist could ask for. I ended up spending 2 hours walking around the store ooohing over all the beautiful ceramics and tiles not knowing what to buy. I was there so long I even had to use their office to breastfeed my 2 month old baby! So hours later and my purse hurting I walked out of there with 3 boxes full of goodies! Below are some of the works that came out of all the wonderful tiles I bought.

Bem Vindo

This is my very first post- YAY! Welcome to my blog where, over the next who knows how long, I'll be sharing with you my artwork, crafts, recipe's, all my trials and errors in different things and thereby hopefully putting some inspiration into you too, to get your creative juices flowing.

I will be trying my very best to post as often as I can, and am hoping that by starting this blog I'll be more motivated to get into my art rather than procrastinating like I tend to do.

I am wanting not only to share my work with you but also wanting to get feed back from you. Tell me what inspires you, what feelings my work brings to you and what you'd like to see on my blog. Lets do this together.
