Here's some photos of the kids mosaic project I did with them a while back..
There were 129 kids in 4 classes... it went really well... except for the grouting..I think I will do the grouting next time...hope the janitor didn't mind the black grout all over the floor.  It was a BIG project and I learned just as much as the kids... Over all it was really fun!!  Kids are so enthusiastic!!! Follow Me on Pinterest
Where did all the time go??   Got my partner from Lori over at prettythings.....  Bonnie and   I  are paired up again....  that makes it easy-peasy.... I know what I would like to send to  Bonnie over at JaspersGems... just have to make the beads... 

It's a bit hectic here right now... we live on a large lake and  it is fulllllll of water.. so much that it it just about over our dock... we had to put big barrels and sand bags out to keep the water from going into our little cabana that has our well in..  We have had so much rain in the last month....all the rivers are overflowing and washing away buildings, etc.  Hope we don't get any big wind which will make bigger waves!!!

Finally finished getting ready for my mosaic session with 129 Grade 5 & 6 students.... Had to drill a hole in 129 pieces of 4" x 6" glass. The old Dremel on the drill press-stand came through with flying colours.. Could not have done it without it!!!
 Just getting the frameless picture frames from all the $ stores in town was a challenge in itself. But I did  learn that I can order them if I have a least 2 weeks lead time.  Oh well..next time!!!!
Cut up 30 pounds of glass into little pieces.  By all my calculations that should be enough glass.   My kitchen scale came in handy to weigh it.  All put into baggies by the colour... Not sure how that will work..  will probably be all mixed up at the end of the sessions... I am surprised that my fingers are still working!!!!  Next came the glue.. My husband had a gallon of Weldbond, so I poured it into 8 smaller squeeze bottles.
Fortunately I am doing each grade on separate days.. I am sure the project will need a bit of tweaking.....Will post some pics. soon!! Follow Me on Pinterest
