As The Tile Crumbles…

As the Tile Crumbles ~ The Ongoing Saga of a Girl and her Little Bits (of tile). It is very easy to get too big for your britches.  I have made tiles for over 5 years.  I'm pretty proud at how far I've come, what I've learned, and how I've done it mostly on my own.  Boredom from repetition had settled in and it was time to stretch myself.  I've designed 8" tiles that have turned out...
