she sells seashells...

The other night we headed down to the beach to see the huge waves that Hurricane Bill was causing. The tide was super high and as the boys were playing near the edge of the water, I noticed that all of these perfect little seashells had washed up on shore.

They were everywhere! And every one that we picked up was just perfect!

But what I really couldn't believe was just how tiny some of them were... tiny!!!

I want to play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you seen these at Michaels? They are called Vintage Findings from Making Memories. I started picking them up before school was out and I remember thinking to myself, "these will be fun to play with this summer!" Hmmmm....what was I thinking!!!???? Even while taking these pictures I must have heard "mommy" only about 3,458,983 times! But really, aren't they so neat!!??
This one is called, "mini travel kit". What I also love is that on the back they show a picture of what you can do with it."mini kit girl"And then there are these little packages of glassine envelopes, artisan labels, plain labels, stamps, tickets and much, much more!

Every morning when I wake up I say to myself, "no matter I am going to make something!!!!!!" Today I actually managed to take these out of the packages.
So in the meantime, I'll just keep looking at pretty millinery....

...and great old papers!

There's always tomorrow!
