Good morning beachy friends and seashell lovers!
It has been a beautiful week here in central Florida with plenty of sunshine, and lower humidity! This is perfect weather for me :)
It was definitely perfect weather for the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot! I didn't have a pair of earrings to match my outfit (can you believe that???) so I made a pair right before we left yesterday morning.
I ordered a couple of styles of bookmarks, and had a chance to play around with one of the mermaid bookmarks-
Back in August during my whirlwind redecorating fling, I had an idea to make a seashell mirror. I was actually contemplating surrounding my huge bathroom mirror with shells (I've changed my mind). I did order some shells I can't find here, but may make a smaller mirror instead, or use them for something else. I haven't decided yet, but thought I'd show you the shells I got for the project. I sure didn't want to use just my found shells, and I'm a little stingy about what I use them for. Bought shells are easier to use for just any ole' craft.
When I was crafting my candle, and making some new beachy decorations, I remembered something I saw on HGTV or Crafters Coast to Coast ( which later became That's Clever). I have been wanting to make these for years!
Last week I was looking around for a dress made with seashell fabric, or fabric to make one. I stumbled upon this gorgeous dress on Ebay!
I would love to find some of this fabric!!!
While looking through my files, I ran across my birthday present from my son, and I have to share it with you. He's very talented using PAINT, the program.
I have taken some time to start stringing that necklace with the Olive shell (finally) but haven't had as much time as I want to spend on it. It was a crazy week at my house to say the least!
I did get to check something off my Bucket List this week! Visit Epcot/Disney World.
It was my 1st time yesterday! Crazy!...since I'm a native.... but Universal/Islands of Adventure is the place to go for the great rides. We used to have season passes!!! (Another gift from Shae!)
I am in a great mood, can't ya tell?!
It's going to be a great day!
YOU have a great Saturday too!
