I hope you all had a beautiful summer. Before we transition into a new season, I'd like to share a few photos of my trips to the water.
There's a seasonal shack selling seafood sandwiches.
Summer is never complete without chowder, lobster rolls and clam strips!
Another trip with some friends at a cabin by the lake:
The evenings were breezy and beautiful.
We followed everything stated on this lake house sign!
Even if I was on vacation, I couldn't help but craft. Here are the inspirations and my creations:
A garden filled with late summer Black-eyed Susans.
I picked a few and pressed them in between some heavy books. I like how the petals tuned into a deep yellow. I might add these to a shadow box or turn it into a pendant.
These were really good bottles of wine that we enjoyed over meals that we cooked. I took a picture for future reference.
I even saved a label to include in my travel journal...TADA!
My journal page made with sketches, stamps, and ephemera.
Here's another trip, this time by the beach:
I brought my watercolor pad and paints so I could practice. Painting water and waves is something I still have to work on.
A little souvenir from a day at the beach...TADA!
