Classy Ladies

If you know me and my business, you probably know that although I like to use my tools, junk, and imagination to make stuff, my REAL vision for Refunction Junktion is that it be a place where people can gather to make creations of their own. Last night was just such a night.

Two sisters treated their 4 daughters, 1 daughter-in-law, and even 1 son-in-law to a night of mosaicing.

Of course one of the best things about mosaicing is getting to smash the tiles and plates.

Everyone came with their own projects -- 2 clay pots, a wine and cheese tray, patio table, trivet, table top, address display, and a bar stool. So much variety and none of it was planned that way.

Even the tile designs themselves were very varied. This design was very shabby chicish.

Time to get busy!

A bit of tile mastic and a plastic knife seemed to do the job.

Probably the most complicated design of the night! (It was no problem for Justin)

It was hard to believe that none of them had done this before, they were all naturals!

These ladies made it happen and had a good time all the way through!

Laying the pieces is usually the most time consuming part.

Here's a close up of that shabbly chic patio table entitled "Beautiful Garden". I say "Beautiful Table!" (Notice that she included scrabble tiles, a faucet head, broken china, seashells, and spoon pieces).

Ah, yes, more fun -- GROUTING!

Still more grouting!

The finished products looked so great!

All in all I would say that the night was, well......

This is on my .. must do eventually list. There is so much you can do with tile's and so many mediums to do it on. I am going to have to set a date for it. I work better under pressure.. :)
