Last nights work went slower than expected. I spent a good hour digging through tile looking for the perfect background tile color for Mary and Child without having to buy MORE! I'm almost swimming in tile and really need to use the materials I have if at all possible to finish my projects. I have tile in boxes, tile on shelves, tile under tables and still I buy more and more tile ~ I just can't help it. I LUV TILE! So here we go... Last night I worked on the vestments of both Mary and Jesus and chose my... Continue reading

Last night Red Bird Marketplace hosted a FREE Arts & Crafts Family Night at Chick-fil-A at their 290 & Hollister Rd. location. Our featured project for the evening was paper mosaics. We instructed the families on how to create paper mosaics, gave them all the supplies needed for their projects and watched how they came together to glue all of their pieces together in their own unique way. It was truly a rewarding night for Red Bird Marketplace to interact with the community and be part of the fun family time that was shared on such a rainy evening! Stay... Continue reading

Everytime I walk by this WIP I really take notice to the chunky part as the halo. I simply placed all of these itty bitty tiles in the place they would rest forever, but not with the intention of how their resting. The entire mosaic is to be flat, but looking at it more and more, I want it to be elevated?!? I have time to decide later which route I'll take but for now I'm researching how to make this all chunky! I've updated my flickr page with a few photos from last nights progress. It was very little... Continue reading
