My friend, Melissa, and I have long been planning a picnic at the beach one day this summer. However, now the summer is here - we are both pregnant and feeling yucky off and on - and it is H-O-T! So, we have postponed this idea for a while!
However, I had already come up with this cute pail of goodies for her and gave it to her this past weekend! I covered an inexpensive beach pail with scrapbook paper and attached with double-sided tape. I wrote her name on a shell and tied it on the handle along with a pretty shell photo and a poem I wrote on the back.
Inside the bucket, was a new pair of fun flip-flops and a copy of Gift From The Sea. I've never read this book but have heard enough good things about it that I decided it was high time. I bought myself a copy too.
We'll enjoy reading our books inside next to the nice cool air conditioner vent this summer!
PS: I've been bitten by the crafty bug lately! So, be watching for some craft ideas to come! :)
