A Coastal Collage

After a few crazy weeks at work , I finally got time for a little creativity over the weekend. My to-do list looks a little more encouraging now:
Plant the annuals
Scrub the lawn furniture
Paint the Playhouse
Make curtains for the Casita
Plant flowers at the cemetary
Wall stencil in Casita bathroom
Work on four collages
Sew the broken awning
Do the laundry
Clean the house
Write a blog post
Lose 31.4 pounds! (thanks Mary Elizabeth!)

Here's a peek at the first of my "drawer colleges", actually finished...

I made this one for our friends, Astrig and Steve, to thank them for a wonderful weekend at their oceanfront campground in Searsport, Maine. It's all boxed up and finally in the mail. The sand dollars were collected on the beach in front of the campground...

Couldn't resist using more of this pretty "Gardening Nurtures the Soul" ribbon in this collage...

There are still three drawers left to do and I actually got two of them started this weekend...all will be gifts.

And there is still plenty of "junk" left to create with...
So, on the wings of  small accomplishments, I'm heading back to work...can't wait for summer and more quiet time to do what "the fun stuff".

Love the drawer collage. You are so creative. I really like that the sand dollars came from their beach. What a thoughtful gift. Can't wait to see the rest of them when done.
