Sea glass & Red

My home surrounds me with things I enjoy most.  That takes in things I like to: wear, eat, see, smell  and craft. That said you know where my posts are going, well most of them might be going to crafting at my Scrap N wrap blog where I talk about beachcombing, wirewrapping and scrapbooking. Then other posts will come from my Hats’n Hospitalitea blog where I talk about our tea room, tourism, family, fun times and places in Prince Edward Island. So I hope you enjoy the home party that Sandi has created.

HOME = Heart Of My Enviroment #1

Recently home from a two week beachcombing vacation and I have lots of goodies to share.  First and foremost I love red, be it a sweater on a chilly day, wine in a nice glass, a red sky at night, but most of all I love red seaglass. I know you can’t see my pouting but I found but a grain of red sea glass on this last trip to the beach. I know, I know better a grain than a crumb. 





However I needed red and so I took red wire and made a weave then pulled it through a drilled hole and made the weave smaller and unique. I had to include sea glass and found this lovely white piece that was a nice size chunk, added some red wire and swarovski crystals and vola, it’s a wrap ready for the gift shop.  I’ve got a blue piece in the making and that is what I’ll share next.

Do you have something you would like to share? You are welcome to share anything pertaining to your HOME such as 

Cooking and baking, recipes, antiquing, home decor, ceramics, crafts, crocheting/knitting, quilting/sewing, floral arranging, gardening, homemaking tips, hospitality, refinishing furniture, renos, tea time, tablescapes, thrifting etc…. Maybe there’s a new baby in the family or you have a new fur baby you would like to introduce us to. They are welcome too!  Anything and everything which makes your HOME more enjoyable to come HOME to, for your family, your friends, and yourself.

Enjoying life, and the colour red today, Cindy

Scrapbooked Album Cover


Every year  customers come into the shop and the question I get asked most often is, “do you have any albums of PEI?”  Last year I covered a number of 12×12 album with a handmade paper covering the album with different medium.

It was a hit with the pictures of the lighthouse, lupin and walking on the beach, cut out paper shells, a hand written poem I made, and the many beach related punches of a lobster, shell, crab, anchor, seagull, starfish and a couple of stickers, I also like to use hemp to tie things up and sew in a sun.

Sorry the picture isn’t as clear as I’d like, but I left the album in the plastic sleeve when taking the picture.


That is all on scrapbooking a beach album cover, I hope you enjoyed my cover.
