Like A Hole In My Head

I've always admired mosaic and glass work but felt like it was a craft that was out of reach because of all the fancy supplies and skills it required. Fortunately, I found a great place in our neighborhood, Seattle Mosaic Arts, that offers classes for newbies like me!

I need another hobby like I need a hole in my head but I can't help but be hooked on this craft!

I made a trivet but the studio also offers garden stones and wall hangings. There were endless jars of glass in every color you can imagine and we didn't have to do any of the messy work! We created the design on contact paper and the studio did the cement and grout work (in the color of our choice). Putting all of the pieces together felt like doing a real-life Tetris puzzle!

It's, by no means, perfect but I had such a great time making it. I'm excited to go back to apply what I learned to another project! I may even try the messy stuff next time!

Anyone else recently discovered a new craft obsession??

I'm trying not to gain any new hobbies for now - we're moving at the end of the month. Once we're there though... I have my own craft room! So who knows?

This looks super fun... ;)
