Lucky number 12


So my mosaicing is becoming a real little money-maker! Ok, so I won’t be quiting my job anytime soon, but it does bring in some extra cash (chaching!). The most recent mosaic order was for a house number, the number 12. This means double trouble! Two numbers instead of one, eeeeck. AND to be done in only one week. Whew, time to get down to business.

As usual, Vince was roped in, I needed somebody to cut numbers out of wood (jigsaw+me = not friends). So after the tracing, the cutting, the drilling and the painting, I could get started on the glueing. This is a pic of the number in progress, I had just started glueing the pieces of cut mirror onto the wooden number.

It does take a while to get the momentum going, but once it’s going, you just can’t stop me. I become obsessed! Waking up at 5am in the morning to mosaic before I go to work is like the best. thing. EVER. Totally obsessed! Sometimes I drive Vince crazy, but I just can’t help myself. Here is a pic of the finished product all glued and grouted and polished. See than shine? Nothing like good ol’ elbow grease.

My client was soooooo happy and even placed an order for a mosaiced mirror. Yay for happy clients and more orders! I must be doing something right. ūüôā
