I'm not Martha dammit, but I did stuff


Been feeling pretty blah blah(blahg) lately, as I usually do when it's cold outside. But not in the bad way, I've just been hibernating by the fire place. I did get a little creative and finally did my shell frame that, in my mind, I finished a long time ago. Like? The coral and I think the sea glass I found in Hawaii(at a secret beach, yessss, we had a secret beach there too!). One of the snail shells I found 11 years ago in the Filipines. And the rest are from around here. Well except for the peach one, I think I found that in Tampa a long time ago. I don't remember....

I used regular school glue because I'm too lazy to go the craft store and get the proper glue, in case anyone wants to borrow this idea for a project. I would suggest using craft glue or hot glue, but since I had neither, I didn't. Hopefully I won't regret this. Another good idea would be to mix glue and clear glitter and brush it on the sides and in between the shells to make it look like sand but like I said, I'm too lazy to go to the store so it stays like this. I'm sure Martha would pee in her pants but less is more I think. Plus if I gave a crap what Martha would do, I would have just went to the store and bought a new damn frame.

Uh oh. I just now realized how dirty it sounded so I have to change it. It IS funny though. Damn I need to stop using the f- word.

My favorite is the one in the top right corner.

You can't find shells like that on the beaches over here.

I so envy your access to secret beaches and beautiful shells because I love shells!

You did a great job. What are you going to put in it?

Beautiful. The glue you used should be good for quite a whild. I would not use hot glue. The problem with it is that if it gets too warm, it just gets soft and stuff falls off not to mention that I couldnever use the stuff without burning myself.
