Thanks! It arrived very fast and was just as described.
A wonderful pop of color for my white wall.

The edges were perfectly cut and it is surprisingly lighter than I expected, which makes it really easy to hang. It went in my remodeled bathroom, and now my daughter is begging me to get her one too. Thank you!

Purchased from her before and loved it. Contacted her several months later to ask if she could custom make one for me so it matches the one I already have and she was quick to respond and willing to custom make one for me. Even after I purchased it she made it and sent me a picture to make sure it was correct.

These are just amazing! Will make a great Christmas gift for our Kentucky loving manager. Thanks!
The joy of creativity.
I started my Etsy shop because - like most artists - I dreamed of living off my craft and creativity.
However, after selling hundreds of mosaic light switch covers, I realized that nothing can kill a passion faster, than turning it into work. After making Etsy mosaic orders for hours, I just did not feel like relaxing with some more mosaics. Soon, I came to miss the need to make mosaic experiments and being creative with tile. However, I just needed to do something different when not making mosaics for Etsy.
So, I began creating with concrete. I started off with some innocent leaf castings. I also made some pots and even a concrete sofa for my backyard. You can see both how I made the sofa and the concrete leaves on my Facebook page.
Today I have a job that does not involve getting my hands dirty with glue, grout or concrete and after a long break from making Etsy orders I am beginning to feel more like making mosaics again.
So, today the shop is about selling creations that I have made for my own joy and interest, while selling out pieces I have left over from the days when I used the shop as a source of income.
I have learned my lesson. The lesson being, that my creativity and crafts cannot be forced. Forcing them made me loose them and the comfort and joy they offered me. I am reclaiming my craft for myself and only if I make too much for myself to enjoy, will I make it available for others to enjoy as well.
