I would like to share my new friend's shop with you! I met Art on Twitter and found out he and his wife live locally and we met for lunch and were instant friends! Art's work is beautiful and I have commissioned him to make 2 window panels for me and I can't wait.
I am so excited. My Glass Fish arrived all the way from Hawaii and I am getting ready to start a mosaic with all different mediums and also a mirror. In the end it will be a cute looking aquarium good for kids room or bathroom or out by the pool!
I can't wait to make this and share it with you all. There are a few more things I need to get to make this and will get it started this week! I am so excited about this one getting done!
Congrats to Crystal for winning the giveaway on 2 Classy Chics site. Crystal has chosen Flutterby as her gift! She picked my favorite frame LOL!
I can make more of this particular frame if any of you want to order it and will offer a 2CC discount and make your Flutterby for $11.00! Offer good until August 1, 2010 so if you are interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Happy Sunday to all of you. I am so glad you all have joined Joaness of Art and have entered the giveaway on 2 Classy Chics.
I am starting on a new project with an old mirror with shelf. I have had this painted and primed and ready to go for months with no idea what to do with it. I refused to just put stuff on it without any inspiration. So there is sat, getting lonely as I picked all the pieces around it to use.
My niece kept bothering me on Facebook to join Fishville and I finally did and voila.....there was my inspiration. This mirror and shelf are going to be made to look like an aquarium! I am now excited about my decision and can't wait to get it all done. BUT I must go slow and take my time so it is just right! Once I am done I will show you all first!
In the mean time Happy Sunday and good luck on the drawing! I can't wait to see who wins and what we will decide for your gift!
Wow this week has flown by so fast. I am so happy to have some new followers and wish you lots of luck in the giveaway on Two Classy Chics. Their button is on my blog if you need to connect to them. They have LOADS of giveaways going on, and I mean loads. I can't keep up with them LOL!
I have some cute ideas stirring in my head for some new pieces I am going to start on soon. Hubby needs to prime the wood for me and do the dirty work! This is a group effort here. He gets the dirty work and I do the creative work! He does get some ideas I might think about!
I do have ONE plaque ready to customize with someones name if anyone is interested before it becomes just a welcome sign!

Welcome to Joaness of Art's blog. I am glad you stopped by for a visit. I hope you like it here and enjoy my mosiacs. A little about how/why I started this business. Several years ago I became critically ill and hospitalized for over a month. At this time I was found to have swelling in my brain from having Lupus, that I was not aware of having. At this time I was VP of a company called National Home Medical and loved my job! Due to the severity of my illness and other issues that happened I was unable to return to work and have ended up on disability. After sitting around the house bored for a year, I decided I wanted to do something fun for me. Many years before I was quite crafty but had gotten away from that! Why not get back into that? So I started doing mosiacs. My husband and I are working on these together and are both enjoying it. I do the artistic part and he does the dirty work! So that is the birth of Joaness of Art! Take a moment and check out my Etsy shop at http://joanessofart.com/ .
I am Joan, proud wife to Dennis and Mom to 2 adult kids, R my sailor and E my college student daughter.
We live in mostly sunny Florida just down the road from Weeki Wachee where you will see real mermaids perform a beautiful show for you, or you may drive 30 minutes and swim with the Manatees. It is lovely here and I always have enough coffee for a visitor as long as you let me Bassett Hound lick your empty mug!
