Walmart had a couple of really nice Mosaic books on sale for less than $7 with great ideas in them!  Not sure if they'd be in every store, but worth taking a look if you are looking for any books.

Glass mosaics are awesome. It's like stained glass but MUCH easier. I love doing mosaics, though I don't do them often because they cost a lot to mail (and sell).

I've gotten 3 projects under my belt so far and I LOVE it! I did a wooden letter initial for both my son and daughter, and a picture frame for my living room. they came out great and I had such a fun time doing them. I also made a couple of mosaic pendants that came out awesome. and I am very excited because someone bought one of the mosaic pendants and is going to wear it to the annual national mosaic conference. I am so thrilled about that. I have a mosaic page on my website now if you are interested to see my projects.

I don't understand why my pictures are not showing up, that is the method I use to post in other forums. well, if you follow these links you can see the mosaic pendants! Sorry I can't make them links, if you tell me how then I'll change them. thanks!

Lori, you need to use html. The coding is <img src="image.jpg"> . And you'll need to edit your post for it to insert the photo correctly.
