Earth Day Mosaic Project

While cruising around the web I stumbled upon an interesting idea. The Earth Mosaic project was something I wanted to be a part of. I submitted two photos which were taken on Earth Day in my backyard, which were to be made into a worldwide photo mosaic.
The mosaic is complete (1630 images from around the globe) and you can view it here!
I searched far and wide and found my flower photo (it's up near Alaska), but I am still searching for Lucy's picture. Where in the world is Lucy? She could be floating in the Atlantic Ocean for all I know, at least she's a good swimmer!
My latest addition to my card shop on Etsy is a set of four blank notecards made with my Earth Day flower image, titled "California Sunshine" available for $12.00. My flowers may be fading, but I'll forever have this beautiful image!

team of 4 has been a challenge...but I'm determined to find my final teammate!
As my friends dropped out one by one with some excuse, I decided to use the power of Twitter to find "tweetmates". So far, I've found 2 total strangers, as crazy as me, that are willing to get down and dirty in this 5K. Now I'm on the final quest for that last fun and adventureous person to complete my "Team Tweet". I promise it will be a day you will never forget, plus you'll get a cool handmade team shirt from me, plus more surprises! Visit to check out the details, then leave a comment if you'd like the final spot! ( did I mention that some former Survivor contestants will be there?)
