I'm very proud to say that everything in my studio has been made from recycled materials. The main storage unit with the drawers started out as an old hand-me-down dresser that my husband had in his apartment when he was single. When I had our first son, he painted it to match the baby's room and we used it for both of the boys. It now houses plates, nippers, glue, and many other things I use all in one spot.
The drop down work area was once a desk top in my son's room. We used door hinges from our old front door so it can be pushed up and out of the way when I'm not using it.
That big comfy black office chair belonged to someone in the neighborhood and was sitting out on the curb calling out my name!
Look closely and you'll see my "The End of the Day" mosaic while it was a work in progress. Some day when my kids go off to college I'll move my studio into the house, but for now this is a great spot!

Living in California near the beach certainly inspires me. Seashells are so beautiful so I thought that I'd use them for my first mosaic mirror. I used a layered style and set the shells on top of one another. I really love the feminity that the shells create. The Mermaid Mirror is currently for sale in my Etsy shop. More shell creations coming soon!
Don't miss the "Yart Sale" going on now until Friday June 20th. Selected mosaics are 20% off and I have a special "10 Dollar Sale" section also. Search "Yart Sale" on Etsy for all participating shops!
