No Work - Just Play

Hi dear friends - I sure hope you are staying cool.  Summer has only just begun and I am already getting tired of the 100 degree plus temperatures.  The cool part (yes pun intended) is our challenge for this week at Tuesday Alchemy is called - "No work - Just Play" and I don't know about you but those kind of days are my favorite.  This challenge will be two fold for me and maybe you will decide to share two projects for this weeks challenge as well.  

To me play is doing just about anything creative and of course there is nothing more relaxing than spending time on the beach.  Of course, lots of sun block and a cool drink (non-alcoholic for me) are just what the doctor would order.  What about you - what's your idea of play (other than crafting)?

My project for this weeks challenge are some glass coasters I altered with some photos of the Eiffel Tower.  A trip to Paris is a dream of mine which is why I chose to share this project first.  Even though a trip to Paris is not on my "to do list" at this moment in time - I can still sit outside under a shade tree on a lounge chair with my feet propped up and a cold glass of unsweetened ice tea resting on top of one of these coasters.  Ah - I am relaxing already.

I am really excited about our Spotlight Artist this week.  Susie's SeaShell World makes some absolutely gorgeous items using sea shells.  Check out her Etsy Store and I think you will agree.

I hope you will decide to join in our challenge this week.  I am looking forward to seeing your creations.  Stay cool my friends!!!

With hugs and smiles,
