I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Exciting Times!

I planned on posting some new earrings, but decided to shift gears and tell you what is up and coming.

#1 My daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids will be here in just a bit less than a week! YEAH!
Kandi and Jake are going on a cruise, and we get the kids!

G'Pa will be bringing an air compressor home from the shop to blow up all of these pool toys!
Let the fun begin! They have also arranged for Brady to practice with our local wrestling team, and to compete in Kissimmee while they are here. He has a meet, or competition, shortly after they return home, and needs to stay focused and on track for his upcoming event! We get to watch him wrestle for the first time!!! His dad was Utah State Champ in high school, and I think we have another state champ in the making ;)
We will be taking the grandkids to the beach for a weekend, and Gwyn has assured me that she is up for some 3am shelling! I would love to have her as my shelling buddy all summer ;)

#2 The reason I have been so steadfastly stocking my shop is.....
last October I was contacted by UCF to come and do a demonstration on making my seashell jewelry at an Agriculture event for people from all over the United States in October of 2012! I will also be able to sell! I still have so much to do to prepare for this event, but I think I am right on schedule. I still need to purchase some earring cards, and price hang tags. That's the easiest part! I am a little nervous...okay I am a little terrified. But I always over think everything, and I'm sure it will go just fine!

#3 I have a big custom order for a wedding next year! I mean BIG! I am so excited for it, and am going to have to do some serious shelling to get what I need for it. I'm on the hunt for more orange scallops in various sizes. I means LOTS of orange scallops!!! Let the beach excursions and shelling begin!

#4 is still a big secret. I can't tell yet as it may not come to fruition, but if it does, you will know! I'll even tell you if it doesn't go through, but have to wait until July or August until I am contacted again. My fingers and toes are crossed!!!

I'll be back tomorrow with some new seashell jewelry!

You are in for some busy and fun times ahead. Exciting about the grandkids. My kids will be here at the end of June so we are planning a pool party and cookout. Don't you just love it!

Good luck at the demonstration! Don't be nervous. They are going to love you and your creations. That does sound exciting!
