Beach Daydreaming

I have been day dreaming about the beach for weeks now. Since I don't live as close as I would like, I decided to make a necklace with some of my beach trip finds. This piece is made with black recycled African glass, potato pearls, seashells and an ocean rock.

The first thing to be added to my Stash To Go Sale is my Quickutz handle, alphabets and dies. I enjoy it but don't use it and so I have decided to part with it. If anyone is interested in it, let me know and I can get a picture of it and let you know which alphabets and dies I have for it. I will be putting stuff on ebay on Tuesday, July 28.

I have another necklace to share tomorrow. The camera battery died and of course when it was ready I had lost daylight.

Time to Catch Up

Where to start? Let's see when I left off it was July 4th. Had lunch with my blog buddy Diana and her family. We dined at one of the local BBQ joints and it was fab! Check her blog out for the yummy pics of our food. Next time we meet we are going to a yarn store and hubbies can go to the local brewery.

This was our lovely quiet 4th meal. We shared the evening with a wonderful brat the hubby cooked on the grill and had lemonade and/or sweat tea with homegrown mint. Boy does that stuff spread. I have so many ideas for gardening next year. We spent the evening playing bocce ball on a much smaller scale than the directions say, but we still had a blast.

On the creative side I made an apron - forgot to take a photo. Now to tackle the studio to be able to make more. I am wanting to open an Art Fire shop this week as well as stock the etsy store. I have started a box of books/supplies to list on ebay as well.

Also, here is the PIF I signed up for:
