Say It With Letter's Mosaic Seahorse And A Few Catch-Ups

Say It With Letters Seahorse using mosaic glass pieces that I cut with a wheeled glass nippers from Delphi and Weldbond glue and mosaic glass all found HERE. The grout was added after the glass pieces were down then dried wiping the extra grout off of the glass. Then I sprayed the piece with clear gloss sealer. The shells in the eye and fin are real finds from the beach. I so enjoyed making this and it is so easy and fun. You could use any of the Say It With Letters cut-outs to make mosaics with. Fun Fun Fun!!

Here you can see some of the shine from the sealer and the opalescence of the glass.

The grout was a mix of a gray and white to get the tan...IDK but it worked!!! LOL!

Here is where you can purchase one of these seahorses to make it a DIY at Say It With Letters

Here is some more things I have been working on 1x3 soldered charms or pendents. Using mixed media collage digital printouts I purchased from Etsy.

This is one of the charms I made for the Art & Soul Retreat I made 14 of them all just a little different the theme is Putting On The Ritz which was perfect! The digital ATC card and 1x1 print are from Etsy and even the bling music charm. I soldered the charms too.

Here is a melted record that me and my dear friend Nancy made together for her friends 50th birthday, I cut everything from the Silhouette Cameo and made the pom poms from yarn using my fabulous favorite pom pom makers from Clover. I have a tutorial HERE.

Ok now here is one of my favorite things to do too lol, tooooo many hobbies!! LOL! I made homemade fresh pear preserves which I made a tutorial for and hope to get it up soon. Since then I have done strawberry jam too as I do every year.

More charms I participated in the Lucky Charm 7 at Ornamentea  I received back a whole new 7 from 7 other artist from around the world, and some very famous ones too!!! Love it!!! You can see some of the post at the Ornamentea Blog where Cynthia will keep you looking and looking for hours so be prepared!! LOL! I soldered these and bought the digital cutouts from Etsy at Masterpiecedesigns and the charms from WineCharms on Etsy. Fun fun fun!!

As if you didn't know photography has been a lifetime hobby of mine....no joke I have always had a camera and sometimes you would really laugh at the ones I had but like they say the best camera is the one in your hands!!!! Sooooo true!  I took this with my IPhone which is always in my hand, lol! I do put it down to create but every since I have had it I have been fascinated with all the photography apps, cant get enough and continue to play with them always....this was taken in the regular IPhone camera and edited in Instagram with a filter. I love it not only was it on my person while in the garden (which is some of my wild flowers) I was able to capture this wonderful butterfly flying by....simply  BEAUTIFUL!!!

This is the inside of my garden shed/metal shop (if ya saw it now it is a mess) I have several jewelry projects going on right now and as the ugg I am all migrated out...lol! I finally moved the metal shop from my third floor studio which took up one small room up there now I have even more room....LOOKOUT!!!!

Dusty has been enjoying the springtime with bubbles, IDK if I enjoy them more than them. He is getting big he will be four in July. WOW!!

The bubble guns are soooo much fun, the boys will play with them for hours.

Cooper will start school this year, yep I know I can't believe it either....already!!! He had his Kindergarten preview this past month. He is excited!! He will be six in September.

It has been awhile I know but you know I just have tooooo much to do and every time I do get on the computer I either window shop or just stay on Pinterest, or start editing photos....so then it is too late to do the blog, I know my head hung low....I also have more exciting news from ArtBliss, which I will share in my next post. Another unbelievable thing has happened too..........both my boys had broken arms....yep Colten who is 10 broke his March 31 in Maryland ice skating, he just got the cast off yesterday. Cooper broke his on Friday the 13th ( I know right) of April and had surgery and three pins.....he is still in his cast. So I have been running back and forth with doctor appts....for myself and them. My stuff was just routine things...but it really consumes alot of time. Well hope everyone is doing well and ready for the summer because I am!!!!!!!!
