REST, RELAX, LAUGH.





Okay, so this is my first post in absolute ages, well it feels like ages and boy have I missed it!
We are still on holiday in New Zealand but only for one more week. My Christmas camera has been getting a real work out but I am still such an amateur!
I got a bit crafty at the beach yesterday while the others were clambering over rocks and exploring the sea-life in the rock pools. I have had a love of sea-shells since I was little and could spend hours digging around looking for that 1 perfect specimen. Unfortunately airport customs would not take to kindly to bagloads of shells being transported across the Tasman so I had to make the most of them while I was here. Yesterday I collected enough to make these 3 slogans which I am hoping will be my inspiration this year...I intend to do more of each...

REST RELAX LAUGH

i love it!!! i think you should print these and frame them in white chippy paint frames and hang each one with a big silk ribbon...or velvet...or gingham or something! blessings!

Ange said...

Hi other Ange - nice to see you back! Looks like you had a great time with the new camera! You get to take your shells back with you anyway - as photos ;-) Happy New year! Hope to be home myself sometime this year !!

Hi there Ange,
Sorry for leaving another comment but I just realised that I don't have your email address. Just wanted to let you know I have a wee give away going since a couple of day's ago. Scroll down to I think Dec 31st or Jan 1st and you will find it!

Hi Ange
Thanks for stopping in and following my blog. I love this post and what you have done with the shells. It reminded me of New Zealand. I can sympathize with trying to take the shells..it is such a wonderful past time. I think you should frame each of these and hang them together. They are a lot of fun!
