Lover of life, animals, & all things related to the sea.
(Well except for those pesky hurricanes, pretty sure we could all do without those.)

I grew up in Nashville, TN and had always dreamed of living by the ocean. One day I was on a mini vacay in Pensacola Beach, looked around and thought 'Why am I not living here?' I couldn't come up with a reason that I shouldn't, so I went back to Nashville, packed up my things, and 2 months later I was living with the Gulf of Mexico in my front yard. I found the cutest little puppy @ a local rescue shelter, named her Zoe, & promptly gave her my forever home, because how can you live by the ocean without a dog to frolic with, right? A few months after that my dreams became complete when I met my future husband Fred & we were married a year later on the beautiful white sandy beach across from where we live…

I have always loved to create things, a gift given to me by my mother, who taught me many crafts. Crocheting, knitting, sewing, cross-stitch (which I actually haven't done in, oh let's say...a lot of years) and of course jewelry making. When I moved to the beach I started collecting shells, there were just so many! It was only natural that I would eventually make things from them. I was particularly drawn to the broken ones. They told a heartwarming story of no matter how much they were broken on the outside they possessed an incredible beauty within. I wanted to take that story & tell it to everyone who needed to hear. I hope that the Beautifully Broken Shell collection that I have created will do just that for you.
