Gifts from the Sea, by Erin G.
I've lived near the ocean most of my life and find myself drawn to the beach several times a week to run, walk, surf, play or relax. My husband and I always collect driftwood, shells and sea glass - whether it's at home in Southern California or on vacation somewhere else. One day, I decided to make a cross for our home with what I'd found. Then, my daughter made one for her room. I realized how much I love the process of turning some of my favorite things into beautiful creations that everyone can treasure in their homes.
Now, I'm completely enamored of creating these Beach Blessings from the bounty that washes ashore - and every day, the creative ideas become more and more inspired. I hope that those who happen upon my creations see something that reminds them of a special day or a vacation on the beach.
