Trip to the Beach

The first ever trip to the ocean with my family still sticks in my memory. I had no idea what to expect. It was the summer after graduating high school before leaving home for college.

We drove and made many stops along the way including Myrtle Beach, Busch Gardens, Disney and Epcot Center. The final stay was for several days on Sanibel Island in Florida.

By then I was already sunburned and had picked up several souvenirs. The one I remember the most was a bracelet. It was a one strand bracelet of puka shells and I LOVED it.

These white seed beads really reminded me of those shells, but most importantly, they reminded me of the unusual WHITE sand beach on Sanibel. To me this takes me right to Sanibel every time I have put it on since I made it.

Thanks Cousin Corporation for this great, memory inducing experience.

Can I just say that I can't get enough of the seed beads? I posted a pic recently of the multi strand package that includes white, off white, clear, ebeads and tiny seed beads. So fun to work with!

By the way, check out Cousin on Facebook for weekly bead giveaways!
