I spent some time this weekend pretending I was at the beach and organizing all of our shells. I had a lot of them in plastic boxes before but not organized. I decided to organize them by type and it would make things a lot easier....boy what a job!! It was fine on Friday when it was 70 here, but today when it was 45 it wasn't as easy to pretend I was at the beach!! What a mess....but it is much more organized....believe it or not!!!
|I had now idea we had this many alphabet cones!!|
I know it looks like a mess, but it is organized chaos!! ....an assembly line of sorts! I would grab a container and walk around the garage and put it in the proper container!!
While I was at it, I was picking one of each, the best colors etc for the wreaths I was going to make for my Mom and Jess. They both had seen my wreath, (see pics here) and wanted one too!! Which means I get to do a little shell therapy after this!!
My Mom's wreath needs to be a little smaller, as she has a smaller apartment door, so I decided to make her a 12", and Jess another 18" like mine!
Here is my Mom's....I think I went a little overboard and tried to put too much, but she will like it anyway....I hope!!
Jess' wreath looked a little better proportioned I think, I hope she and her hubby Brad will enjoy it!!
I think I could do this for days!! I have another thin wreath that I may just play with later on and put here at our house!! Stay tuned!! I am in shell craft therapy mode now!!
