Is there anyone else out there that loves to craft…even while on a beach vacation? I just can’t help myself. I feel especially creative when I’m on vacation – I guess I get so relaxed I can’t shutoff my creative brain 🙂 It happened to me again on a recent beach vacation.

Another passion of mine is searching for washed up seashells. I can’t even begin to guess how many pounds of seashells, or beach sand I have collected over the decades. I always promise myself that “I’m just gonna go for a walk” before I know it my head is bent down and I’m looking for shells. On this particular trip I was decorating our rented condo with my fabulous finds. I also wanted to incorporate them at the dinner table.

    I’ll be doing this one, I love to gather shells and just did so at Sanibel Island. Think I’ll have my Grand daughter make these when she visits soon for vacation! She and her Mom are professional shellers! Thanks for a great idea.
