The story of Creations from the Sand

While on a girl’s weekend to Daytona Beach, Gina noticed the resort had a " Island Art” sand box. Gina and each of her companions were intrigued and decided to engaged in the sand box experience. It was so much fun! They each used their own handprint and created a memorable souvenir that they still treasure from their special weekend.

About a year and a half later, Gina was again in Daytona Beach with one of her friends who had shared in the sand box experience. They remembered the fun they had creating their own beach art. Gina jokingly said to her friend, “I think that is what I would like to do someday…Have a sand box kiosk set up on the beach!”

Ironically, Gina and Steve had been doing some soul searching. They had both run successful businesses in the past. The kids were now grown. It was time to have a little fun and make some positive changes in their lives and career goals. The love of the water, the beach and the salt air was a driving force for future change, but what could they do together that would get them closer to the beach?

Gina remembered a business card that had been given to her from the “Island Art” representative and pulled it out. She told Steve, “This is probably a crazy idea, but what do you think about this?” They went to the website and within minutes became very excited about the possibilities. The next day, they met with Ashley Willis and became the proud owners of “Creations from the Sand”.

Steve and Gina are beginning their 7th season of working in their sandbox and still loving every minute of it. It doesn’t feel like a job! Every day they get to meet and work with fun people who enjoy creating their special beach memory.
