    I love the Diva ornament! It looks like you had a very Joyeux Noel. đŸ˜‰

    How do you make your mosaics? This one is so pretty and the photos go together so well!

      Hey Ellie….the mosaics are made at http://www.bighugelabs.com . You can do all kinds of cool things over there…as far as how they are laid out-
      I always try to have a mixture of stills (usually a food or nature shot), posed and candids. I try to capture the day as best I can.
      for example- Jean Louis called my SIL “Diva” all day so I included the ornament shot to remember.
      There was a lovely barista in the family, so I wanted to get the snowman froth magic…you get the idea.
      One secret- I use my crappier pics in the mosaics. The really good shots can stand alone, but the lower quality can sit in a mosaic and not look too terrible because they are so small…a cheater tip for you.
      I’m so new to photography and I don’t really know what I’m doing but it’s bringing me so much joy…now I have to learn how to get those crispy, clear photos.
      Can’t wait to see what you try Ellie!
