Hi everyone, time to introduce myself. I'm "mum" (Chris) on this wonderful blogspot my lovely daughter has developed. I hope you are not under the influence of alcohol while you are reading this as I am now presenting the third and last of our party tables.
It's still waiting to be siliconed into the table frame. We have labelled it the "LSD party table" and you will no doubt see why. Here's a before pic of the table as it was (the other two were identical), and also no. 1 and 2 after completion...
I had a lot of fun doing no. 3 and even though it looks complicated it was actually quite easy to do. A bit time consuming but satisfying to say the least. I will admit to being a bit dizzy after sitting for several hours cutting out circles and placing them. My next project is quite sedate by comparison, albeit fiddly as it will be done in glass. I have to say to anyone contemplating taking up mosaics - DO IT! I have never had a hobby and took this one up in the middle of last year after a bit of convincing by Megan - I haven't looked back. It is very therapeutic (although people think that they have to have a lot of patience and that may be true for some people) and you do have to have the time (which I have) and support of family and friends (which I have also).
(I might mention here that I ended up selling the Naked Lady for $300 a few days after I finished it!)
My lovely partner Hank made me a little studio of sorts in a section of our back veranda which was used by our dear old dogs until they passed away early last year. Consequently it is called the Dog House. Therefore if anybody wants to know where I am, I'm simply in the Dog House. Contrary to popular belief, it is not gender specific!
So there you have it ladies (and gentlemen - just so they don't feel left out!). I have really enjoyed reading all your blogs and seeing the amazing creations coming out of them. I think it is a wonderful way of having a little brag about our accomplishments, but more so spreading the amazing feelings of self satisfaction from doing something yourself and enjoying the end result. Keep them coming.
Peace and love,
Post Script from Meg: In keeping with the psychadelic table (and the comment made by my friend Sonia from Raine and Sage), I just had to share with you a photo of Mum recently at my cousin's party...
