About Me

Clacton-on-Sea, North Essex, United Kingdom
Hello and welcome, I'm Diane and I am Mum to two lovely, lively and craft-minded children, Tayla and Arron. I love my crafts,especially knitting and crochet but my main passion is designing and making mosaics. I have been mosaicing since 2007, using a variety of different items. I suppose I should call myself a mixed-media mosaic artist. I also love the challenge of a commission!!! All my items (including those on Flickr) are for sale, just leave me a message for details. (I do have Paypal)

My new tops for wearing to events...

These arrived this morning...

A polo shirt and a hoodie for me to wear at events.

Machine embroidered with my logo by the lovely (and clever) Sarah at http://www.sewandsoaps.co.uk/
Very fast delivery and a very patient lady. She took me through what I wanted and what could be done. Even though I had seen a graphic, I was still very pleasantly surprised when I saw the real thing. Can't wait for the next fair now!

Latest works from me... think my button and beads fetish is coming to and end!

Firstly is an Autumn box and then a Fairies Jewellery box
This one I have called Waterfalls (on a natural wood slice)

These glass backed sun catchers are called Spring blossom, Summer love, Autumn falls and Winter magic. I have encorporated some buttons into two other mosaiced pieces which I must finish today. Watch this space....

Where does the time go???

I really must get round to updating this blog with my latest button and beads creations but I have been so busy in the run up to my first fair (this Sunday) that I really have not had time. All items are photographed I just need to get them loaded on to the computer. I will be doing this on Monday. In the meantime I shall carry on stressing about the fair. All the advertising etc is done. I am off out tomorrow putting road signs up and replacing in taken down posters. Then it's all systems go for Sunday. Fingers crossed for fine weather x
