Seaglass is tugging at me again. We're not big into Christmas shopping for each other anymore, but I saw a book on Amazon that I was dying to have. Pure Seaglass! So I decided to just buy my own gift, wrap it up, and put it under the tree.I'm also thinking I may want Santa to bring me a special drill I can use to make little holes in those pieces of seaglass. I haven't been totally pleased with my attempts to wire wrap pieces, not to mention I have cracks in my thumbs from trying! I broke a beautiful yellow arrowhead-shaped piece the other day when it fell onto the tile from the wire wrap. Oops. Back to the drawing board!
If the sun, moon, and stars all fall into alignment, we may get to take a little beach trip! Craig's discovered he may have some time off at the last minute over the Christmas holidays, and Michael will still be working in this area, so he could babysit Miss Saby. It doesn't involve a tropical locale, but I'm looking into someplace within six hours where we can get some beachcombing time. What's that poem by John Masefield -- I must go down to the seas again . . . ? It truly IS an obsession!
I've also discovered online seaglass communities out there one can join to share information about crafts, best seaglass beaches, etc.... I was on a seaglass board the other day and read a comment from a member that she'd hunted Playa Media Luna on Isla Mujeres for seaglass and found nothing but trash. That amazed me. Everything in this tray and more was picked up on that beach in two short trips up and down it after Hurricane Ida passed. I wish I'd gotten out there earlier because I waited until the next morning! I guess one person's trash is another person's treasure!
Can't wait to get back out there on the hunt!
