Tiny Shells from the sea......

My muse has come back with a vengeance and I'm soooo happy!!! (wiggling finger to come closer....I'm making her a jar so I can put her in it at night so she can't disappear on me again but shhhhh don't tell her)

When I was making the sand dollar ornies and was going through our stash of seashells, I discovered quiet a few small ones with a natural hole on the top. Some of them I used for the cording with the sand dollars but I still had some left....just sitting here on my desk...just needing something done with them. So I did something with them!!!

I painted them....well....not all of them...some more will be painted soon though.  I'm thinking these sure would be cute hanging on a table top tree or a wreath or perhaps a few hung from the center of a big ribbon as a grouping. So many possibilities!! I have a few more ideas for some...want to hear them? Of course you do and if you don't well you are going to hear about them anyways. That is unless you click off this post but now who would do that? I mean really....I'm entertaining...ri iight?? For those that are still are the ideas...let me know what you think:

Penguins standing in snow
Snowmen standing in snow
Rudolph laying on the beach
Santa in swimsuit
Fish swimming with bubbles

Now I would love to hear some ideas and I might even use them....that is if ya don't mind. Do keep in mind that these are tiny shells. Let me show you........

That's what I'm up to of the things. I'm also working on a fabric rose corsage to wear with my gypsy shawl. I just love that I'm being creative again. Soooo what are YOU doing today? Nosey Inquiring minds want to know. ^_^

Until next time.....HUGS, Regi


  1. These are really cute! They look like fun making them too!

  2. Wow! What a steady hand you have to paint with such detail in such tiny space! Lovely work.
    I´m working on some art journaling that has more journaling than art. :D

  3. these are just darling! I can't believe you paint things of time. I think I'm going to have to share this on Facebook.

    I can't wait to see your penguins and snowmen. Have a great weekend!

  4. Very cute sea shells! I like all of your ideas!

  5. Oh my goodness I thought these were large shells!! Your painting is so perfect in such a small space. Incredible. Would love to see penquins. Hugs Mrs A.
