a Sand Dollar…. breathes through its feet

I have been combing the beaches all my life finding seashells and beach treasures, viewing sea life and beach birds. This summer I was so inspired by all of these beautiful beach creatures I photograph and blog about that I decided to pick up the paint brush again. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had 16 designs that I packaged into notecard gift packs with FUN FACTS about each sea creature for a fun twist. Check a few out…..

a Horse Conch … makes ocean sounds if it’s next to your ear

a Dolphin … sleeps with one eye open and one eye closed

They really do! Half of their brain sleeps while the other half is awake…. so the half that’s asleep- the eye closes.

a White Pelican … has an average wingspan of 10 feet

They are HUGE!

Here’s what the front of the Sea Life box looks like…

a Seahorse … has a single mate for life

There are 4 designs (2 each) in each 8-pack box of Seashells, Beach Treasures, Sea Life and Birds.

So now you know what I’ve been up to when I’m not blogging. I am very excited that some of my favorite retailers already have them in their stores- check them out!
