Yey! I Broke A Mirror

Seven years bad luck? Not in my book!

Can you believe that when I opened my luggage from my trip that this broken mirror brought a smile to my face? Well, it did!


That's because it means I can make another one of my mosaic switchplates.


I made this one years back for my first apartment in college. It's traveled with me ever since and I still love it today. I 'plan' to work on my new one over the weekend - if I do and if your interested I can try to get a tutorial together for you too!

So neat - I would love to try this with some old cups (I would even be willing to break them as a commitment to the project). A tutorial would be awesome.

That is so great! I'm a little jealous you are able to find time to do this stuff -- I kept some pretty broken tea plates for a long time for a project like this,then finally gave up & tossed them.

I'll just live vicariously through you for a while. Unless...




Wanna babysit?


bwa-ha-ha TOTALLY teasing! ;)
