My divided attention

I’d been meaning to watch The Cove for ages, but I didn’t think I could handle it if I gave it my full attention. You see, I’m the kind of girl who cries more in movies when animals die than when people do (generally speaking). So to give a movie dedicated to the slaughter of dolphins my complete and undivided attention, well, that was going to be a stretch if I didn’t want to turn into a blubbering mess. The solution: watch the movie while mosaicking. And this is the result:


We ♥ Jack (and Sally’s not bad either)

My brother’s fiancée is a huge Nightmare Before Christmas fan. We’re talking huge fan – she’s got more Nightmare paraphernalia than Ottawa has civil servants. So this year I decided to contribute to her collection by making her a Jack mosaic. I chose the simplest design I could find, and even once I got it drawn on the plate I had to simplify it even more – Jack’s mouth just had way too many lines! Damn him! Even though this piece was a bit of a challenge, it did have one advantage: if I can’t come up with any gift ideas for her next year, I can always follow up with a Sally mosaic!
