Yay Me!

I am just so excited that I made my first sale yesterday! I only started announcing and promoting my shop for a couple of days and got an order. I sold the Fiesta picture frame shown above. That is a good sign for me!
Check out my Etsy shop at . I will also take special requests for colors etc. If you have some plates you want used to make a decorative mirror let me know and we can make arrangements.
I hope you all enjoy checking out my site and I will be adding on soon!

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 .
