Mosaic Books and a blog Widget

Ok let me see if this code is going to work. The books below are a small sample of titles from Amazon. All if these books are by Emma Biggs, the instructor that taught the workshop I attended last week. Sherry (one of my art blogging pals) had mentioned wanting to do mosaics and so I wanted to try out this cool widget from Amazon.  I have been a member of the amazon affiliates for years. It is a great way to share book titles with your readers and you can earn a few cents here and there if someone buys through your link . Unless you work it hard across many websites it is pretty tough to earn any real money off of affiliate programs like this, but every now and then I may earn enough to get a $25 check per quarter. More than anything else it is just a great way to provide an interesting reading list with easy to use embedding tools.  The widget below is one layout option among many choices. You can get one that will fit the entire width and height of your menu column.  Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy looking through the book titles, I know there are a few I want to place on my wish list.

Oooh, thanks for this, Rebecca!! Of course, I have to remember it is here when I have a few extra dollars...but I like knowing where to come and finding your recommendations. It will be a big help. I think I will end up doing mosaics, and hopefully sooner rather than later. I so love them! (Always comes down to money, but once I gather a few things I will be off and running!)

Have fun girl. It is very easy to get started with Mosaics. I know I made the workshop sound hard, but that was just because I was working in a new way with new materials, trying to break out of old ways of thinking. The basics of mosaics are pretty simple and you can take it as far as you want ...always new stuff to learn and new materials to try.
