A Special Mother's Day Gift




I have been doing mosaics on Monday nights at the 4th Street Studio. I really enjoy creating art with a different medium, while getting some galpal time in with my Etsy sisters. It is fun to see all of the nice creations everyone is doing on a weekly basis.

Another friend of mine gave me a great idea for a Mother's Day gift. She wanted to create a mosaic stone for her daughter to give to her grandparents for their gardens. I got to thinking about it, and realized I too could create something with my grandchildren to give to their mother. I know how to do it and have access to the tools too!

I purchased a couple small cement pavers at the local hardware store. I also purchased the glue that I needed since they will be used outdoors. My thought was to have the girls over to my house to complete the project. Each child could create their very own masterpieces, and then I would take it to mosaics and grout them.

So, I had my son bring the girls over while their mother was working. I purchased already broken glass and a few glass stars to add to the mix. I got a few sticks for them to get the glue out of the tub and place it on the pavers. The fun began!

With a little help from my son and I, the girls created something unique to give to their mom on Mother's Day. Gifts from the heart make the day even more special!

Oh, and by the way, their mother loved her surprise on Mother's Day!
