Here is the thing..

I have no idea what I am doing! This whole blogging thing is very new to me!

I guess, I will start by telling you a bit about myself and my shop! That's a good idea right? My shop is called Pieces of Home Mosaics here is link www.etsy.com/shop/PiecesofhomeMosaics
I make Mosaics & Fused Glass Pieces....


                                                                     My Story

I started playing around with mosaics & fusing glasses almost 2 years ago. My kids had all got married and bought home of their own. I needed something to do! Here's the thing... You can only clean and watch tv for so long before you feel like you want to kill yourself. I had to find me...well,  I found me. I found me sitting in the middle of vintage tiles (that I found for free & made my hubby go get) with a hammer. I found out that I just loved it! Find your passion and the world is yours!

The idea of broken pieces becoming whole is my truth. This message touches my soul. My mosaics are intended to reflect that beauty is all our pieces integrated together!

I think life is just like a mosaic and well sure..a box of chocolates too! In life, we invite all sorts of people into our lives. We have all sorts of experiences. Some of those experiences feel like they shatter us into little bits of jagged pieces and some make us feel whole.

In my family...I am adopted. My parents took me in and made a whole.

In my family...we have opened our hearts and home by fostering a few amazing kids.

I figure if you just add the "Grout" of LOVE you will have the best mix of awesome you can get! By the way... sometimes yelling and freaking out is part of the Love process!

I am also a preschool owner and teacher. I think I get my inspiration from my little students. They love art, they love to get messy and they just Do what they want with what they have to work with. I wanted that! I wanted to feel free to do what I wanted. I wanted to get messy and create! Well, I did it! I found the love of mosaics and now I am an artist! Life is an amazing adventure!

Someone asked me not long ago... what is your favorite piece of art and why. I said.... Oh, wow! Now that is a question! Hmmm, that's like asking which kid you love best! But I will say, I enjoy working on my windows the most. I love taking those Old vintage windows and transforming them into something beautiful! Giving them a second life filled with color. What do people say... What is old is new again!

That is the scoop! Or as my 85 year old Dad says.... Now you know the poop!
