I've been busy this week sewing for others and making gifts and new items for my shop so I haven't had time to make anything new for myself for the $30 Budget Challenge. I'll get back to it. I still have a lot of ideas for projects. I will also share the gifts I made next week!
This is what's been on my mind: The beach! We will be leaving for the beach in a few weeks and Annabelle is getting so excited! So am I! I can't wait to show the beach to Dashiell and see if Annabelle still loves it! The last time we went she was 16 months and I don't think remembers it. She would RUN into the ocean!
Annabelle and I did an art project yesterday that turned into a countdown to the beach!
We stared with some seashells and paint.
Here she is getting messy!
One of our finished projects!
Then I had the idea about the countdown. I made circles and she helped me use the seashells to print around the circles.
Then I cut them out and attached them to a ribbon with tape.
It looks great hanging on our mantle which I decorated with seashells and some of my Dad's beach photographs. I love it! Totally getting me in the mood for the beach.
Each day we'll pull off another number until we've reached the day we leave! I think it will help Annabelle realized she's not going to the beach every day she wakes up!
