I never look forward to this time of year... the end of August. There is a chill in the morning air... the nights are a bit cooler and days are getting shorter.
The malls soon become bustling with back-to-school shoppers and you find yourself purchasing closed toed shoes instead of another pair of trusty flip flops. There is mad dash to capture last beach days and nightly walks to the local ice cream stand slowly come to an end.
The end of Summer... it seems to sneak up on me. I guess I am just never prepared for its departure.
I have always loved handmade. I grew up making my presents for people - and still do! I have taught my children to make their gifts as well. There is always so much more though and love that goes into creating something special for someone. I am a mom of 2 girls and own my own biz - Sea Glass Things. I have been collecting & designing sea glass and shipwreck posttery jewelry, art, home decor and wearables for 13+ years. It is for the love of all handmade that I have started this blog.... in hope of bringing the simple joy of a handmade way of life to others.
