Who would have thought that 2 months ago I would now be fully engaged in setting up a brand new website! A website that is going to feature my hobby passion - collecting sea glass.

For years bottles of the 'stuff' have been growing and filling just about every room in my house. Always wanted to do something with my precious collection but never really doing anything about it.

Well now I am. This 'plan' is formulating in my head. It's a liquid plan that changes as I delve deeper into the project but I am starting to see how its going to work.

At the moment I'm teaching myself new skills so that I will be able to share my ideas with others. I've not got much to show for the work I've done so far as creating the foundation for this new project takes a lot of different components.

This was my first attempt at producing a little 3D card, since then I've come up with card kits and other extensions to the idea.

I managed to raid some OP Shops before self isolation hit me hard, so part of this new project is to work on re-purposing these into new tangible products for the home, such as suncatchers, using my drilled sea glass. The picture is in my brain, just not done a sample yet ... :-)

I know one thing, my creative juices are flowing and the ideas are coming at me so fast I have to jump to catch them!

Stay safe and healthy.
Southern Shores Sea Glass( Love that name!)
