I Saw Bugs Today !

I'm not a happy camper at the moment because I saw mosquitoes hanging out on my windows today. Winter is not my favorite season, but at least it keeps the bugs away ! This got me wondering what the talented artists on etsy had to offer, based around my least favorite bug - the mosquito. I found these terrific items:

Details :
  • GretchenKramp's Mosquito Tile caught my attention first. It perfectly captures the look of the tiny fella on my window today. 
  • Artforkids creates such colorful pieces. I found this amazing mosquito, a bold yellow, orange and lime green collage.
  • Loveabug's shop has some amazing creatures, including the New Mexico Mosquito, who "attracts her prey with color".
I wanted pictures of the items for this blog post, but was not quite sure how to combine them creatively. After some searching on the etsy forums, I found an interesting solution. The site I used is bighugelabs.com. I followed the link to Mosaic Maker to create the picture you see above. There were only a few setup steps, then I was able to create and save this terrific .jpg. I'm going to check out more of the site's features - it has a bunch more !!

Stay safe - Stay inside - unless you get some of that citronella soap !!
