Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

It's Saturday!

Three hours of fabulously creative therapeutic art, with four fabulously funny ladies who feed my soul (mostly).

Today, I finished my house number tile and began painting the clay baubles that I made two weeks ago. They will be threaded onto chains and become a hanging mobile when they're fired and finished.

As a group, we made the decision to create a mosaic pot for our next project! We are very excited and keen to get started and our mission this week, is to search out tiles and glass and other materials that we can use for our project.

I'm especially excited because I've had a plan, ever since we moved into our house, to mosaic the floor of our outdoor area. My old hairdresser once worked in an old shed with a concrete floor that had a beautiful mosaic design in the entry way and I absolutely loved it.

Once I get a feel for it, I hope that the experience will inspire me to design something amazing for my floor, and during the process I hope to discover a 'tile/glass/other heaven' where I can have easy access to all the materials that I need!

I've spent an hour this evening in Pinterest checking out lots of Mosaic Projects and I've created a board under the Romance Your Life Pinterest page. The most difficult part will be deciding on my design ... but I need to choose a pot first.

I like these ...

I also spent an hour in my workspace this afternoon, where I emptied a draw of paperwork so that I could fill it with the jewellery that arrived last week.

My desk is now a little clearer of jewellery, but it houses a pile of paperwork that needs a home! I seem to be chasing my tail.

I hope to spend an entire day at my desk tomorrow. Sunday will NOT be my day of rest. I want to be super productive!

That means that I'm off to bed.

Nite all.
