Link Your Slice of Life Story Here!

sols2The month-long Slice of Life Story Challenge is two weeks away. However, if you stopped by to submit the link to the Slice of Life Story you wrote for today, then Ruth and I have yet another little surprise for you. One lucky participant in today’s Slice of Life Story Challenge will receive a little gift the mail since yet another Etsian has generously donated an item her shop for today’s Slice of Life Story Challenge Participants. (She’s donated a second item for the month-long Slice of Life Story Challenge too!)

As a writer, you have two jobs to do:
1. Please link your Slice of Life Story to this post by leaving a comment (scroll down to the bottom of this post).
2. Check back tomorrow to see which of today’s participants will be chosen (at random — we’re talking name picked out of a bowl again) to win the item below. It could be you.

Joan from reChinafication donated a beautiful glass coaster for you to place next to you (to protect your desk or table from your hot coffee mug or tea cup).  Joan’s coasters are all studies that she’s doing to prepare for a large mosaic installation that features stained glass flowers, as well as small toys and bric-a-brac on a field of stained glass.  Instead of playing around with samples that weren’t functional, she decided to turn the samples into coasters.  Quite frankly, I think both of the coasters Joan has donated to the SOLSC are gorgeous.  Here’s the one that she’s giving away today:

The mosaic materials are signatures of Joan's work. The petal colors are favorites. The brass beadchain, which is more commonly seen hanging from fans and lights to turn the fixtures on or off, is an element you see in almost all of Joan's mosaics. Newer to the scene is the bling -- cubic zirconia -- which she can't get enough of.
