New Mosaic - Cats, of Course!

I was drawing in my sketch pad when I came up with this design.  I love when that happens because my sketches are usually fast, which means I didn't toil for hours perfecting it!  I drew a second one which I will turn into a mosaic soon. 

I used wedi board as the base, which is really easy to cut into simple shapes with a utility knife.  This mosaic is 7 1/2 x 12 1/2" and made with stained glass, millefiori, seed beads, a glass fusion heart and steel wire for the whiskers.  It's titled "Beyond Space and Time."  Hope you like it!

A Couple Beaded Mosaics

I made these two little guys for Christmas gifts for my husband and son. They were little wooden items I got from Michaels that I covered with seed beads and millefiori and then grouted. They're pretty tiny (the penguin is only an inch and a half high) so they were tricky to handle. I then crocheted them a couple little scarves to stay warm!

Book and Postcard Giveaway!

Thank you, readers, for your support and enthusiasm of me, my art, and my book all of these years. This holiday I am giving away a signed copy of my book, The Night Before Christmas, illustrated by me with my stained glass mosaics, and a set of ten postcards with images from the book.

To win, all you have to do is go to my Facebook page, find the Giveaway post (which should be very close to the top of the page) and follow the instructions.  You have up to three chances to win!

The winner will be picked in a random drawing Tuesday morning, Dec. 22 and announced on my Facebook page. If you are in the U.S., I will send the book and postcards with Priority shipping on the 22nd, in hopes that you receive them by Christmas Eve! Outside the U.S. are welcome to participate as well - it will just take a bit longer to get to you if you win. :)

Thank you for once again sharing my book, of which I am very proud, and GOOD LUCK!
