Mary's Mosaic Monday

Welcome to the first edition of Mosaic Monday.
Confession: I have cheated. I looked at the participants' offerings last evening and oh.my.heck. what am I doing here? =D They're beautiful!

But I have been practicing. I grow better by leaps and bounds drips and splats.

For my first entry, I decided to do a mosaic focused around this blog. I had fun doing it and perhaps that's more important than being my usual perfectionistic self.



If you should find your way back for tomorrow, I'll give you the lowdown on Mrs. Lincoln's cake. Have a great day...

  5. Very nice!

    Now, to do Blue Monday or Mosaic Monday next week? Maybe I can do a blue mosaic!

    I love that you have words in your mosaic. Tricky!

  8. Oh come on, Vee, you're too hard on yourself. You don't need to practice at all. It's wonderful!!! I love all the pics from around your house. Is that a photo of you, bottom left?

    Thanks so much for joining the fun! :)

  11. It looks wonderful. I think I will have to participate next week for sure. I have to check if they have a theme each week or you can just make up your own theme? I will go and see what is happening but this is going to be so much fun. I will peak in at your blog again.

  12. Ooooooooo! I like your new header, Vee! Not only the subject matter, but you got a great shot!

    Your mosaic looks pretty darn good to me. What program did you use? I think there's a mosaic thingie on Picasa but I've never done it. I'll have to check it out...

  13. Fun instead of perfectionism...now there's a concept worth exploring! I think your mosaic is delightful and speaks of you. I haven't tried a mosaic yet. I love visiting Mary's blog. Maybe I can give one a try for next week. Have a great Monday! Kathy

  15. The addition of words really set this one off. May I ask what photo editor you used. I was using Picnik but it is so slow and keeps crashing (so glad I paid to use that extra part) Yesterday I used a different one but can't remember the name right now.

  18. So hope that her blog, will give tips on where to find sites, to help make mosaics, and etc. Hope. Hope. Hope.

    I'll go take a peek in, later.

    Btw, that's the first time I've used the word 'hope,' in blogging, in a long, long time. It was hi-jacked, a while ago. :-(

  19. Hmmmm, the click-able link you give, doesn't take me to her post. It says: "Page not found
    Sorry, the page you were looking for in the blog Little Red House does not exist."

    But there is a link there, to her blog.

    But I think you want your click-able link to take readers to that particular entry in her blog.

    Just saying...
