Lady, actually, I am hoping to mosaic over my kitchen floor(just straight over the tile as it's a concrete slab too and the tiles are on there good) and the backsplash, soooo, I have to do a really good job on the fireplace so DH will be more "receptive" at that idea....or I'll just start when he's at work for 12hrs and than it'll already be on the wall and he can't say nuthin'! lol!!! Are you catching this Daisyme??hee hee!!!!

I AM SO HOPELESS!!! I did jigsaw my finger!! It's all chewed up now, I'm so mad at myself!!! I was trying to get my front window project done since DH can't seem to find the time!(Workaholic) I just get going too fast and my brain gets ahead of my hands!!! Today I took it easy and just went snooping/scrounging around for lumber and such, and also went to the pond guy, who talked me out of buying a pump right now(Has he been talking to DH??!!!)since we have this reno/insurance job to pay for. He even said that he can hardly wait to see what I do, mosaic wise, to the fireplace!lol! (I showed him pics of my garden art)
