My/OUR new home!

After nearly nine years at 595 Snelling Ave. my shop Mosaic on a Stick is getting a new- old home.The new site is only one block north and east of my current location, 1564 Lafond Ave. The Building was built by Cap Wiginton more on Cap here in 1938. It has been a very long process- far longer then I ever thought it would be. Still we are not there yet -the floors have been stipped and soon cleaned and polished.Walls to be torn down and new ones put up fresh coats of colorful paint applied.... Lots to do. We move in on Saturday!!!

So many memories have happened here many pieces of art created and wonderful people have shared their stories and their hearts with all of us.

I received a letter from an old friend of the stick with this beautiful bead she made you can see her web site here

The hardest part has been the packing of all my art supplies- I can hardly bare to be away from them for a minute, but of course I have plenty to do!

And when things start to happen,
don't worry. Don't stew.
Just go right along.
You'll start happening too.

thanks to Dr.Seuss

que milagro!

I am waiting again- for lots to begin... lots!!! (maybe I should pack?)
plus its a snow day! which means play day- super quiet at my shop not much traffic on the roads...

I have been obsessed with milagros for a long time, both the power of them- these tiny objects having the power to cure pains etc and the look of them. I am trying to make my own again. These are mostly of glass frit poured into fiber paper molds and fired in my kiln.
