Thoughtful Thursdays: Down Time!

Can I just say how happy I am that it's Summer? Here at the shore, I call it summer as soon as Memorial Day weekend rolls around. Well, actually I call it Summer as soon as a weekend day that's over 70° rolls around. And I just love to spend my down time at the beach. It's only a short 3-block walk from my house, and I love to bring lots of reading material, sketchbooks, pencils, and other projects I might be working on at the moment. I've pinned sewing projects, cut out material, stuffed dolls, collaged, pasted, painted, glued and journaled on the sandy shores of Ocean Grove, New Jersey! And sometimes, I just sit quietly in my beach chair and do nothing but listen to the waves crashing and the seagulls cawing. It's a total recharge for me.

So... what's your favorite Summer down time activity?

  1. Ooooh, I should hate you, really!!! The beach is my favorite place in the whole wide world ... ANY beach! Yet I haven't made the trip (about 2 hour drive) to the Oregon coast in nearly 2 years. Sigh.

    When I DO go, though, I am going to shamelessly copy your idea - I LOVE this beach memory collage - I've always collected beach stuff, then not known what to do with it!

    Thank you so much for the inspiration!!!
