Summer Inspired

In "honor" of my upcoming trip (just one more day!!!) to California, and considering we may visit the ocean, I figured I would need somethin' to put my sea shells in (dry ones of course). So I made this:

It took about 15 minutes because I hand sewed it....but I love it!

About this trip, I am SO excited! My grandma & I will be traveling (by TRAIN!). The ocean is my favorite place to be (although I've only been there twice *ahem*), but there's something about this place that makes me long for more the minute I step on that plane (or in this case, the minute I step on the train).
Of course, I love going to the ocean when there's hardly anyone there (which I'm sure is rare) because a crowded beach is not fun. At all. But about 2 years ago, this one beach was pretty empty, and it was total bliss. It was peaceful, quiet; the sun wasn't all in my face; it was breezy; I LOVed this place.

I love collecting {real} shells fresh from the sand, hence the adorable little pouch as in the pictures above. Hope you enjoyed!

Anyway, sorry about my {non-crafting} rambles! Just had to get it outta my system I guess.

P.S. I will be posting more about my trip on my personal blog {and if you've never been there, click HERE to visit!}
