Be vewy vewy quiet...

we're hunting seaglass.

The weekend before last we took Kerig to Headlands for the first time.  At about a mile from end to end, I think it's the biggest natural sand beach in Ohio.  After wading our way from the parking lot to the water's edge, Molly plunked down in the small rocks of the high tide mark and started looking for seaglass.  

I have to say - it's a highly contagious and addicting activity. It wasn't long before Ted and I were in on it, too.  Kerig was the official glass keeper and photographer.  It's nice to have one of those around!  

I have been using these teal-ish blues all summer long.  I don't know if it's a trend or a crutch at this point.  But at least time it has a basis in the photos... sort of. 

The papers are all new from last week's Archiver's run, as are the letter stickers and the ticket-y looking things.   I don't know if it's a good thing that I'm using everything that I got right away or if it's causing me to ignore the already-huge stash of papers that I already have.  

In my last post I made a comment about maybe selling banners and word based cuts on Etsy.  That wasn't a fleeting thought that I threw out there to see how it sounded.  I've actually spent a fair amount of free time making designs.  You can't just buy shapes from the Silhouette store, but them out in bulk and sell them.  The designs are Silhouette's intellectual property, and can't be used like that.  But I can design my own things and cut and sell them.  I'm no artist, that's for certain.  But I think I can make this work.  The "amazing" banner and the little marker with the three red hearts are (a tiny little) part of what I've come up with so far. 

I think that's all I've got for today.
