This week's Photohunt theme is Memorial. Okay, I have to admit - I was not inspired to play this weekend. But I had a last minute inspiration.
I had wanted to do a mosaic garden stepping stone for a while. I am not very creative so I decided to purchase a kit. I found a kit that was a large square step which is what I wanted instead of the round type. I liked this kit because it came with stamps to do lettering and had several ideas on the box.
One idea was to do a pet memorial. I mentioned it to my hubby and he really liked the idea of creating memorial plaque for Mina who died in 2007. We decided to do it together as a project. This had its pros and cons. G is very artistic and I knew he would come up with a great design. But it also meant we would have to work together on the project which has not always worked out. We usually disagree with how to do something and end up in an argument.
But one Monday was stormy and rainy. Perfect day to stay at home so we decided to work on the project. We talked it out and it ended up being a great way to spend the day. The box provided glass marbles and a bunch of chips of stained glass. We slowly took the pieces and put them together to make a rather abstract cat. I think we came up with a great design.
