This weekend we got to enjoy time at the beach and time with Nick. He loved visiting his Great Aunt, especially her new puppy. And of course there is nothing better than exploring the beach with Nick.
It was a beautiful day on the beach and lots of sailboats enjoying the breeze. Grandpa and Nick were being silly.
Nick found a shell tree and added his own shells.
And he loved exploring the beach, he even found some glass for me and a few hidden crabs.
And we had a nice haul, lots of larger pieces too and some fun new shapes.
And that gave me inspiration to make some new things. I used a couple of the larger pieces of glass and painted some nautical designs on them. I used acrylic paint and a coat of gloss over the design to protect them. I left the rest alone, so the frosted glass shows. I like the idea of mounting the larger pieces and working on some ideas for ornaments I can give as gifts.
And used some of the rocks to paint more smile rocks. We will be hiding them this week, when we go camping. If you want to know more about my group, you can visit at DSmiles4Miles on Facebook. The heart rocks are something fun and easy, that anyone can do.
And after all that work of hunting on the beach, we took a swim. Nick loved bobbing up and down on the waves. We will be camping locally, our cat sitter isn't feeling well, so we will stay close to home. That way we can come back every day to take care of the kitties. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
