We got to spend part of the Christmas holidays at the beach. Everyday as I walked on the beach I collected shells. The first few days we were at the beach there was a storm and I found lots of large shells. I was collecting because I knew I wanted to make something for “The Grandma” to take home to remember what a wonderful holiday we had. I had my hot glue gun (a girl can’t travel without her hot glue gun and her cork screw right?) and bought a frame at a large box store. The frame was unfinished and it looked perfect the way it was. We had so much fun arranging the shells. I put all the pieces on the table and several of us took turns arranging the shells. It was a very collaborative effort.
I had collected many shells so the process was really easy. The hot glue gun made it a quick craft. I had a picture enlarged to fit the frame. I think this would be a great tradition to start. Every year collect shells on the beach trip, make a frame and put a picture taken during the trip in it. It would be wonderful to hang all the pictures together to document all your beach trips. It was a wonderful holiday. I got to spend time with the people who mean the most to me.
