Mosaic Me!


Ellen, did some mosaic making at her "L.A. Is My Beat" blog, and I thought it looked like fun!

Well... (ahem)... It took a little LONGER to do than I would have liked, because 1) I can't follow DIRECTIONS!! Grr... and 2) The pictures I would pick out were not being offered for show by the owners anymore...

(Oh, come on!!!... You can't share a picture of JELLY BEANS any more?!! Whatever!!.. EDIT!!)

Anyways... I did like looking through all the beautifully creative photos, and coming up with a finished mosaic all my own! So Thanks Big Huge Labs, and to all the talented photographers who SHARED their work!!

Well, it's been quite a week, and I'm looking forward to the one ahead. Though Old Man Winter is not finished with all he has to say and do for the season, I'm sure, it's been nice to actually reach the high40-low50 degree temps recently! I'd like to see some MORE of that, if we could! I think today, I will relax with my crocheting and probably some reading. I'd like to watch a good movie with the kids, fully set up with a buffet of snacks and various goodies! Hmm, those happy cupcakes in my mosaic are looking very tempting! I may have to make some! Then, maybe we'll head up to our nearest video store to pick out something good! I hope my friends, family, and blogging visitors are ALL having a great weekend too!

Oh, and Happy National Crochet Month! I shall certainly give some thought to how I would like to commemorate and celebrate such recognition to our craft! (0:
