Lots of pretty pastel sea shells! I painted them with Martha Stewart's luscious new colors: Beach Glass, Antique Silk (pearl finish), and Wintermint (w/glitter added). I mixed and blended and then coated them all with a heavy helping of glitter glue for added shine and sparkle. So pleased with them!
This will be the kids craft. They are wooden shells and starfish I found at Michael's. The top ones will hang on a net or string to show them examples and the rest will be painted a solid color. Will put out glitter glue and gems of all sorts to make their own. The wooden wands we did like this last year were a big hit. Still on the look out for some sharks and/or fish to make it more interesting for the boys. Yea, I know... I've got time!
Got myself a hot glue gun and reinvented Ruby's barely-worn Jasmine crown. I decided I was not going to buy another costume that will just sit in the closet and would instead buy her something in the same color palette. Something that can be worn again. But to jazz it up a bit I will layer over her aqua tutu, add this crown, and add this seashell pin...
Feel like this needs a little something yet. Maybe pearls???
Had a ball with this stuff, but now it's time to get busy around here and do all the things that have neglected since I have been down and out this week. Like laundry, taking more Christmas stuff to the basement, and rehearsing some new material for an upcoming gig (now that my voice is back again).
Happy hump day!
