from my beach

it is a beautiful sunny day here in IB and I have been cooped up in the bedroom forcing myself to read a book and do its homework for english class. boo.



being in this room (my craft room) i can't really focus on english, so i bribed myself to read 1/5 of the book and then craft for a while before reading some more. hey, whatever gets me through the day.


rather than crafting new, i decided to take advantage of the warm sun on our patio and photograph some of the beachy things i made last week. take a look!


The sand on each item has been sealed so that it will not peel or scratch off. The sand, shells and sandollars were all recovered locally in Imperial Beach, CA.

Standard sized single switch plate covered with sand and sealed, then adorned with a natural shell. Comes with standard screws washed in ocean blue.
I can't wait to make more fun things with sand and shells. Summer is fast approaching and this little beach town will not be sleepy for long.
