The Art of Mosaic

I can't tell you how much fun I had this weekend! I went to a class in Grover Beach that is the best kept secret in the Central Cost Area! It is called Passiflora Mosaics, the owners Fred and Donnell Pasion are great teachers and hosts! It was an incredible two days, starting with introducing our selves (everyone in the class), then picking out our glass and starting to mosaic our pieces. The first day went so quick that I don't think anyone stopped for lunch, but I was so busy cutting my glass and applying it to my mushroom that I don't think I even looked around. When I got home the first night I went to bed at 7 pm I was so tired (a wonderful tired)! The next morning we started to clean our pieces and then then apply the grout. Then to let our piece dry and clean it up. Last night I had a hard time going to sleep my head was so full of ideas and when I finally did go to sleep I was up at 3:40 am. It is so hard when you can't turn your head off, but, oh what wonderful ideas are in my head. If you live in this area or you are coming to visit you need to make sure you drive by their house, where the classes are held and look at their yard, it is like Disney Land to me. It is just incredible, stepping stones, mushrooms, wall hangings, bird baths, tables, even the crack in the driveway is mosaic! It is eye candy and unbelievable to behold. The address is 330 N. 10th Street in Grover Beach. Fred and Donnell's next classes start in January please go to their website for information about the classes, you will truly be happy that you took a class from these two wonderful and very talented people. This class has pulled me out of my depression since I have moved back to this area and I feel it was a wonderful blessing for me to take this class, I feel like I have my grove back. Thank you so much Fred and Donnell! Here is a picture of my mushroom, mind you not a very good one but you can get an idea of what fun I had! The website is
