This is my first mosaic 3-D project and I had so much fun doing it! I made this for my mom because she loves to garden and I thought her garden needed an accessory. I think with all the various colors, it will blend/accent it nicely. Enjoy!

When I was a little girl, a neighbor of my grandmother had a birdbath that he created from
cement and embedded with tiles and other objects including marbles. I thought it was the most wonderful thing I had ever seen in a garden. You reminded me of that object. What a great memory. I would sneak into his yard just to touch the birdbath.
In the field of crafts, we're a novice among experts here on Hometalk. However this idea has very special meaning to an AK team member. She started the tradition of making memorial ornaments for herself, and her family members, to honor their loved ones that had passed on that year. There could be a million ways to do this, and she chose pictures with frames and she and her children enjoy some sentimental moments but happy memories when hanging these on the tree.
This can be the time of year when we missed our departed loved ones the most,and this is just an idea to keep those we love part of our happiest moments.

I really like the fact that the island/table is fairly narrow yet allows for a work surface
and I like the contrast color. When we had our kitchen cabinets/floor/counter replaced, we were told that our kitchen space is really too narrow for an island, because it is only 8 1/2 feet (open space) across. We felt that we could get a nice island in the space and still leave adequate room to walk around. This table looks like it would fit well.
So after going to A LOT of trouble to hang these pictures (taking the pictures, having them developed, finding small frames, making templates for each one and taping them on the wall to
have the holes in the right spots) it turns out that the dang (and I use that work kindly) hooks are not in the center of the frame.
Here is my question: I have had several people tell me that they like the way they look. I (being the one that did it) can decide what I think; so I am hoping you will chime in and tell me what you think. To straighten or not to straighten????

Kim, Kass (above) might be on to something. I was thinking that you might make the frames
stretch more across the space above the couch rather than in a square. Consider making rectangles of black construction paper that imitate the size of the frames and experiment with the shapes by taping the papers on the wall. Your photos are lovely
Do you like it? Do you not like it? Do you have an ecological alternative? Is it the best thing since sliced bread, or could you live without it?

I love my Swiffer mop too but I only wish it had a wooden handle. I sometimes really want to
push down on the mop and the flimsy handle doesn't feel as if it can take it. I don't have the spray type, but I do use the wet pad and the dry cloth and have used microfiber cloths in my Swiffer but sometimes the cloths are too bulky or too short to fit properly. I have also used the dry cloths with the mop to wipe my walls free of any cobwebs or dust.
