Creation Station

This morning I got the itch. This week was my first week at my new job. And I love it! My new boss is just as crazy about shells and Sanibel Island as I am so we have a lot in common. Anyway I think that's what got me going again.
I haven't been able to finish some of the frames I have been working on so... I just started new ones ;)

Until I have a house big enough for my own room/area - this is where it all goes down.

I seem to find a lot of these Coquina's and I thought a little frame would be cute.

These are also everywhere in Sanibel. I have no idea what they're called.

I did not find these shells below - I think my mother in law actually gave them to me. Anyway, I had just enough for a frame.

I went to Michaels yesterday for glue sticks and I found wine bottle stoppers! I couldn't resist.

So, all of these items are for sale in my Etsy shop. I can't wait to finish the others!


  1. So lovely.... you have a good eye for pretty things. thanks for sharing.

  2. Cheryl, the shells that you didn't know the name of, are called Spiny Jewel Box. Before being rolled around in the sand for a long time, those rows of little bumps would have been tubular spines sticking up. We don't find many here that have spines left on them. They made a pretty frame. :)

  3. Thank you Debbie and Tootie! Such helpful information - I learn something new every day :)
