Fridays with Friends

Hey Ladies -

It's been a long time since I've done a Fridays with Friends post.  But I was approached at a crop earlier this month by a long-time mosaic lover with her latest creation.  Amanda shared her awesome Las Vegas Mosaic with me and I just had to share it with you!  It is even further proof of the magnificence of Chihuly glass in a mosaic layout.

I took two pics and the glare from the overhead lighting is in a different place in each, so I'm sharing both so you get the full effect of just how vibrant this mosaic is!  Pictures just do NOT do it justice.

If you have any mosaics that you've completed, I implore you to share them with me on my Facebook page Minerva Mosaics Scrapbooking with Tami Potter's Mosaic Moments.

Do You Celebrate Personal Chef Day?

The Days of the Year Website tells me that today is Personal Chef Day.  How do you celebrate this occasion?  Do you have a personal chef?  Yeah, me neither!!!

But I did make this awesome layout where I actually sewed scraps of fabric from the aprons pictured onto the mosaic grid paper to create the mosaic effect.  I had sewn aprons for many of my loved ones for Christmas that year and I thought it was a fun idea to create a page about it.

The layout itself was a Design Team challenge when I was on Tami Potter's Mosaic Moments design team.  The instructions were to create a layout using the 2 1/8" squares.  I had a lot of fun with this one.

Happy Mardi Gras

New Orleans is my absolute favorite place I've ever been.  In honor of Mardi Gras, let's take a little tour of the Garden District with Tami Potter's New Orleans Mosaic

Wish I was there!
