Our Mosaic Weekend

Well i had a great time last weekend with my sister, i honestly didn’t think she would enjoy it, not being crafty at all but she surprised me and absolutely loved it.  I arrived at her place on Friday afternoon and i just couldn’t get her to start lol  even she didn’t think she would enjoy it so of course there was a lot of procrastination on her part lol   we got up early on Saturday and took the plunge 🙂  Her neighbour came in for a couple of hours to have a quick lesson and then it was just Julie and I.  She loved it that much we ended up doing a marathon 14 hrs straight of mosaics lol   good music on in the background , her partner Mark keep coming in at the appropriate times to feed and water us lol  and I’ve never seen her so relaxed, she actually slept like a log after that ( not usually a good sleeper) and now she’s determined to keep going,  think I’ve created a mosaic monster haha ,

Here’s  a few pics for you.  After me trying to get her to work our what sort of picture she wanted over the last few weeks !!!  I ended up just drawing out this flower pot which she loves, so i know its not a really tech drawing but she was very happy.

Totally engrossed and didn’t want to stop

    Great job Julie, the mosaic is beautiful. Kudos to you Karen for persistently encouraging her. The fact she slept well speaks volumes. Sometimes we all need a shove to find out something is good for us.

    What a great job she did. I’m sure she is as proud as you are Karen. Sometimes it does take encouragement but there is a well of creativity in all of us. You just need to tap into it. 🙂
