Back from the Beach and Inspired

Had a great time playing at the beach for three days, but now it's time to get to work! Coming back from the beach inspired me to create this sweet sign for my entrance table and then one for my shop...


You can even make a lamp inspired! Just adding this starfish ornament changed it up a bit!


You also might remember my beachy mantle (which is always a work in progress):




Meanwhile...

At the beach, we played lots of mini golf, had great dinners, and of course, played at the beach. We even created this replica of my son's new lizard:

We also had some fun making these smiley faces all over the beach...people kept looking and smiling (that's what we wanted!)



















Dug a big hole and FINALLY, reached water!


Love this picture...pure joy!

Getting ready to go out to dinner on my b-day...


Then, we had to go home...oh well, something to look forward to...Another beach day trip before school begins? You bet!

I'm glad you two had such a good time!! I think some days at the beach sound wonderful! It looks like you gathered some great inspiration while you were there.

What fun sign! Looks like yall had a great time! Making holes until the reach the water is the best!

I hope I come back inspired from the beach. Sure could use some. Feeling kind uninspired lately.
