It has been almost a year since I’ve written anything for my blog.  We tend to move through many projects quickly and then forget that perhaps they made a difference in someone’s life.  Earlier this year I made a mosaic tulip sculpture for the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure event.  In honor of Elizabeth’s Garden I created a piece that could be placed in an outdoor garden.  Tonight, I attended the artists reception and met the family of Elizabeth, a woman who made a huge difference in the lives of many dealing with breast cancer.  Their appreciation of my sculpture allowed me to see that in some ways, big or small, I do impact the lives of others.  The sculpture, along with other art pieces by noted Texas artists will be on display at Collin Creek Mall through mid-June.  For more information, go to Elizabeth’s Garden at www.KomenNorthTexas.org.
Yesterday and today, Taylor and I worked on a mosaic table top with the school children at George Peabody Elementary school.  It always amazes me how quickly one can accomplish a mosaic project with a well coordinated group.  Our tabletop design is a peace symbol.  I will post pictures soon.
We are also working on a mosaic stepping stone path for Dwell with Dignity’s new offices.  This is another group project, initiated by my friend Sirena.  Check out the blog article at www.dwellwdignity.blogspot.com.
And, we just had the opening of the second mermaid and octopus show so check out the blog by Kerri Arista at http://kerriarista.blogspot.com/2010/05/in-octopus-garden-in-shade.html.
