White Wednesday

"A self portrait without using a portrait"

48 squares
1.5 in. X 1.5 in. each
No faces allowed.

That was our homework assignment last week.

How to let people know about me,
and what I like?

How to let people know
what inspires me
and what makes me feel alive?

48 squares.

Each one a little piece of my home.
A little piece of the place
where I am what I always wanted to be:

a wife and a mom.

I got those two right...
the rest is only gravy!

"Life is the sum of all your choices"
~Albert Camus~

Now I'm off to enjoy White Wednesday!

I think you've summed yourself up pretty nicely, but wait....I think I see a little of myself mixed in there as well.

Great photos!

Wonderful mosaic. Thanks for sharing!!!

Susanne said...

What a cool concept! I have been intrigued by a magazine ad that read something like 'make a room look like you without you in it'. Kinda the same idea.
Love it!

Lynette Killam said...

Such a clever idea..and all the tiles bound together by your choice of lovely creams and whites! I love it...


Sue said...

And each of those little squares is SO you! That talented "Miss M" is at it again!

oooo ~ love it! Great job. I would just love to know how you did it. I see the mosaics often and have no clue how to start.

That really turned out beautifully! I've got one stuck in Picasa I'm trying to finish, just different colors. I hope it turns out half as nice as yours. Wonderful to see such a dedicated love for family and motherhood!

Happy WW!
