1. You know more about the products and tools in Home Depot and
where they are located than your husband.

2. 99% of your shopping trips involve things having to do with mosaics and the other 1% is food.

3. You have a bandaid on more than one finger

When you're eat in a nice restuarant and your Hubby tells you, "No you can't take the dishes home!"

This actually happened to me yesterday when my Hubby took me to Red Lobster for our belated Valentines dinner. They were using Beautiful bright multi-colored crockery!!

Tasy- I LOVE those Red Lobster plates

Lets see, when
you look at ANY plate and try to figure how you'd break it

when every surface in you house looks like it needs
glass or broken dishes on it

when I hate to drive 10 min to the grocery store but think nothing of planning on a 1 hr drive to the glass store

1- when you have mosaic WIP projects throughout the house. (I have one on my coffe table in the living room, a birdbath in the family room and finished projects on a table in the family room - besides I have a glass shop in the shed.)

2- You'd rather shop for glass and dishes than food, clothes, and basic needs.

3 - When you can't sleep because all you can think of is your next project.

Let's make a book! This is good.

I accidently broke a Fiesta coffee mug last night. My daughter (13) was at my mothers, I was telling her on the phone and replied "Dont make anthing with it, until I see it."
She loves our Fiesta, so much she buys it herself. I think she did not quite belive that i did not do it on purpose!

When you stay up all night because YOU JUST HAD TO SEE IT GROUTED!

When you look at every item at the thrift/auction/yard sale deciding whether an item can be mosaiked or broken.

When you stop lusting after jewelry to wear and only dream of glueing it to something.

When you order a mannequin.

when you have your Dh calling from Lowes to verify, if you wanted sanded or unsanded.

when caring for your family's needs is just something to get over with so you can go back to glueing.

when everytime your friend calls and asks what you're doing, you keep giving her the same answer, she even answers for you now... I'm glueing... you say in unison!

If the only thing you break is a plate when your best friend says 'You're an uncontrollable crack addict, sniffing too much glue and buying too much alcohol.'

You have irresistible urges to leave or lurk by back doors of restaurants using expensive dinnerware.

The temptation of 'nudging' a table heavily laden with Bridal gifts has you climbing walls muttering something about mosaics-in-law.

When your surfing son suddenly figures why mom was so excited about 'those really great breakers'.
As he stares in wonder at his newly decorated board.

When the sales clerk at the local china store is always out on the side walk with Windex at the ready when she wasn't there a few minutes before when you drove into town.

When the silicone fumes from one project cause your nose to run, you use your black grout-covered fingers from another project to wipe it.... then walk outside and have a nice long convo with the neighbor who is giving you weird side-glances all the while.

When you've finished cooking your hurridly-made grilled cheese sandwich, you reach for a plate, but discover you have no more clean plates... so you grab one off of the stack of smasher plates. And you don't care that it's not washed until well after the fact.

....being told by your DH..ya know were gonna have to put you on "MOSAIC" restriction...

...trying to pay your boss to lay you off so you have "more time" to mosaic!!

...when you hear of someone breaking an entering on the news you wonder if they put good alarms at the glass store/2nd hand store!

...you start calling neighbors looking for "usable" household items and dishes to donate to your "cause"

...you wonder how long your family would stop talking to you if you broke ALL the family china that was handed down for generations!!

......when your DH has to bribe you w/a trip to the glass store just to get you to stop gluing and take a shower.

......when you get excited at the sound of crashing glass at the resteraunt.

1. When your husband goes out and buys a set of glasses and tells you they are NOT to be used by you because of all the adhesive stuck on the old ones.

2. Assuring even strangers that the black under your nails isn't dirt, but grout....somehow that seems like it would be more socially acceptable in your own mind.

3. You come home from work and your drive way is lined with bowling balls from complete strangers...by your door is boxes of broken dishes, junk jewelry, etc. left by friends.

4. You walk everywhere with your head down thinking you might find a "treasure" to pick up to use for mosaicing...parking lots especially!

5. Buying grout and junk is more important than perfume and lipstick! (and that's a biggie for me)

...when your piles of plates get so high that you have to periodically go thru them to remember what you have and find the perfect plate to finish a project on the bottom!

...when you realize everything in your house and garden would look better mosaicked and start doing it!

...when you can always find another time to do housework but theres never enough time to mosaic!!

when today, I was in a ts and found the most beautiful set of dishes..the saucers were completely covered with print..the dishes were around the edges but they didn't accept debit cards..
so, after I left..I called to have them hold them (instead of having them hold them before I left)
they asked me to describe them...one of 3 sets there..
the really striking pretty ones..the blues, lavenders and the pale peachy color apples....
and she says they were being wrapped up as we were speaking..someone had just bought them!!!!!

When your hubby asks "what's for dinner?" You say, "nothing."

When your hubby runs to Lowes to get your more grout. When asked why he is so nice about it, he replies, "I like watching you smile while you work."

My rule #5432: Never work after dark. I know I am addicted to mosaics when I can't wait for, and anticipate what I will do when, it is morning.

When my mosaic is equal to that which was magneted to the fridge, when I was 5.

Thanks guys! :) They were fun, easy first time beginner projects.

mmqchdygg...they would make great paperweights.

This site is the most fun I've had in a long time! (pretty sad, huh?)

Thanks for the welcome!

Fiddlekate...THANKS! the apple is actually one piece of wood...an apple cutout...I did both sides...one red and the other side green. I didn't grout the apple...wasn't sure if I should...to grout or not to grout...:)

On a day out shopping with my girls, I promise our next stop is for groceries then we're home bound. Yet suddenly you're pulling off the road and telling them to sit tight for a sec.... while mommy goes back to the street to pick up all that beautiful mirror broken at the curb. (Oh yeah, I need to get that out the car!) LOL

Now that's what I call ingenuity, LIVN - Never would have thought of using half globs entirely on a piece. BEAUTIFUL. Oh, where was I - the game. Mosaicing addict - when you rush your family out the door and even though you say "come back soon", you know your lying cuz you hope they don't come back for a loooooooooooooooong time so you can get back to mosaicing.

When you are walking down the street in your work clothes and you see a construction guy pulling up tiles in an entryway of a downtown building and ask if you can have them. Seriously, he gave me a bucketful!!!

When during your remodel you build your new craft room in line-of-sight to the store, so you can play while you watch for customers to come in (and you built the laundry room cleeeeeaaar on the other side of the house! I just realized how fortuitous that was! : D)

You know you're a mosaicin' maniac when ......

Working on a project right up to the minute I had to leave, and then realizing OH NO I'm late, I grabbed my keys and dashed out the door to meet a best friend at Home Depot to help her pick out crown molding, not seeing her car (she's late also) I sit down on a bench outside the store to wait, and in passing, a little girl with her mommy hands me a dollar. I'm shocked and speechless...in a panic, I go back to my car, assess myself, and realize I too hadn't showered, brushed my hair (much less my teeth), was wearing my worst stained, siliconed, and ripped jeans and t-shirt, had BLACK stained HANDS and finger nails, AND to top it off, I had painted my laundry room that morning and some white paint must have dripped on the top of my head which, to a little girl, must have looked like bird doo doo...IÂm sure the little girl thought I was HOMELESS! I was mortified, determined I wasn't getting out of my car again except to go in to my house...I called my friend and told her I couldn't make it..sorry, something had came up. It was several weeks before I could tell her what REALLY happened. We laughed so hard I almost wet my pants....but I wasn't laughing when it happened.

you know you're a mosaicing maniac when...
i was meeting a friends mother for the first time and when she walked up she handed me a gift box, which i thought was a little strange, but i thanked her politely and apologized for not getting her anything. she started laughing and told me to open the box. inside was several broken plates and tiles. my friend was horrified that her mother had given me a "broken" gift, and started apologizing. she had forgotten that she told her mom i did mosaics. i thought it was like christmas.

Remember when I broke my leg and posted that picture of my cast and everybody took turns virtually "mosaicing" it?! That was sooo funny! I think a Mosaic tribute would be to mosaic a "clacking cat" to give to each other....like the frying pan mosaic exchange we did!ha!We could call it :Ode to Mosaicing
