On deck this week- pendants and earrings, mostly of the seashell variety.

Now that the kiddos are gone all day at school, I am trying to get back to work full-force. Today I'm fulfilling a pendant order for a local retail shop.
And the little seahorse in the bottom left corner is going to go to Etsy when he's finished.
More photos later this week!

Well between Hurricane (Tropical Storm) Irene, loss of electricity for several days and school starting last week, it's been chaotic around here to say the least.
Last Wednesday Aidan started second grade and Avery went in for his Kindergarten orientation.
On Thursday, I put my baby on the "big kid bus" for his first full day of school. Aidan was so cute. "Come on, Avery, I'll show you what to do" taking him by the hand...
With the kids off to school and several hours all to myself each day now, I have begun a real and true full time work schedule for myself. Difficult for a WAHM.
Today I shut down my website and in the process moved another 30 some odd items over to my new Etsy shop.
I also listed some items to my original Etsy shop. (now the proud wearer of my domain name www.scarboroughseashells.com)
I was supposed to start running again today. I had been running 4 miles a day, about 5 times a week. Then I broke my toe. And, well, that ended that. I've been two months without a run.
So I had it all planned out. To start with, I will run Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays immediately after the kids get on the bus and I'll be back home and ready to work by 10:00. This morning I woke up, suited up with my new sneaks
I guess there's no harm in waiting another week, right? Ugh.
In other news, I saw a great tutorial for making these little felt flowers to put together a wreath today.
I'm going to make one for my fireplace mantel that should stretch me through until Christmas time.
It's now entering the 3:00 hour- which is my draggin hour.
I could just crawl into bed and sleep til dinner. What do you do to stay awake when the mid afternoon drags hit you?

The kids asked when we were going camping when they saw me take out this stuff. I told them we already were! :)
Maybe we'll pitch one of the tents tonight if the power is still out...

We are packing up and moving to higher ground. Due to our proximity to the water, we're in a mandatory evacuation area and have to be out by 10am tomorrow morning.
So we picked every last veggie we could see
Stay safe everyone!

This past Saturday we took our annual (this is our second year and we plan to do it again next year, so that makes it "annual" now right?) trip out to Block Island, RI with the motorcycles.
A gorgeous day riding around the island and stopping at the beaches to wade, look for sea glass and relax.
I was lucky enough to find the first piece of glass

I've got a ton of work on my bench this week, but the most exciting is this pendant I'm designing.

I have so many craft shells and beach themed supplies I decided it was time for them to have their own shop!
A smattering of what you'll find:
