This week has just flown by as I have been creating and crafting/arting away. Lol!  I said arting! Yeah, I know I am silly and that is okay.  Spending too much time being so serious has not exactly benefited me in the past so why carry it with me into the future?  That’s not to say that I do not have a serious side, believe me it is still there, but I am finding a balance.  I am learning what I need to let go of from my life and I am finding it to be a wonderfully profound experience.

I do not hide the fact that I find great inspiration from the beach. Last Sunday I was looking at the Yarnista blog post that was called “What will become of me?” It was a picture of some beautiful yarn that immediately reminded me of the shoreline in San Clemente.  I was so inspired that I left the following comment and I wanted to share it with all of you.

“I walk along the sandy shoreline and see your beauty filling my eyes and my heart. Taking off my shoes and socks my feet are covered in the embrace of your sparkly caresses. As I soak in your beauty not only through my eyes but with each step I take I am so hesitant to leave your companionship. I hear the roar of the waves as they momentarily alter out union, rushing in but unable to break our connection. I wander along feeling alternating kisses of warmth and cool upon my feet. What will become of you? I sit down with you and pull forth your loving colors, the colors of the shoreline, the colors of nature, the colors of the beach. You are not the colors of the sea, you are the colors of the earth as it meets the sea. My heart is open and embraces the beauty that resides within you. I work these colors into a beautiful shawl to wrap around my body as I envision the sandy shoreline hugging me in a lover’s embrace. A tear rolls down my cheek as we depart but I find my heart warms as I know I am embraced by your love.”

Sometimes I forget that the beautiful beaches in San Clemente require maintenance.  Some of the walk ways to the beach fill up with beach sand and need to be shoveled out periodically.  Other areas need more heavy equipment to rearrange the sand.  Here is a prime example.

Time for my Craft or Bust update:

I am continuing to work on my 12×12 inch square.  Should be done within the next week and mailed by next Friday.

I am slowly making some progress on my Traveling Woman shawl for the TwitterKAL.

I took about 500 photographs that I need to sort through to upload to my Fine Art America Gallery.  Depending on time constraints it will take me a week or two to sort through them all and pick out the ones I like the best.

I finished my Art Card Exchange for Imbolc.  I have some pictures to share from that but not until it is received.  So later in this week I will post some pics and share more details about the process.

Well that is my update for now.  I am off to spend a little time with my family.  Have a great night.
