About Me

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)

Apologies for a lack of blogging!

Just wanted to apologise for my lack of blogging. Mainly due to two things;

The event at Clare Priory on the weekend of 10th/11th July which was brilliant, I just love the atmosphere at this event and the professionalism of the organisers and the welcome received. Can't wait for next year's event.

Secondly, both my children are changing schools in September, Tayla moving up to secondary school and Arron changing to a more local primary! unless you are a parent in the same situation, you just would not believe the amount of time involved in this, what I thought to be a simple process. All the visits to the schools to meet teachers etc, uniforms to be ordered and collected etc as well as all the paperwork for emergency numbers, allergies etc. Well that's all done now. Both children have today said their goodbyes to the old school and friends (with many tears-and that's just me!) and are looking forward to the new chapters of their lives!

Now it's time to concentrate on holidays, family, the sun and the garden, all in the that order (hopefully)

On the mosaic front I do have some new pieces to show but until I get time to upload the photos, I am afraid my dear followers will have to stay in suspense.

Lastly, unless I don't get back to blog and update before the end of the school holidays, I'd just like to finish by wishing everyone a happy summer!
