All my life I dreamed of moving to Cape Cod. Twelve years ago a friend who lived at the Cape in the summers convinced my husband and I that we should make my dream come true. I now live in South Dennis with my husband Tim and our little Yorkie, Dolly.
The years when I wasn't working full time, I took several painting classes in Acrylic and oils. I found that I love the acrylic best for what I like to do. I eventually decided to make greeting cards out of many of things I painted.
One day while strolling on the beach I found the cutest thing....a horseshoe crab. I picked it up and took it home. After studying it for a bit, I felt it needed a little something to make it more beachy. I painted it and decorated it with little shells.
Friends and family saw it and loved how beachy it was and wanted one for their home. Since then I have been making them for coffee tables, bathrooms, bedrooms and more.
Hope I can introduce these little cuties to more people so they too can have a little part of Cape Cod to bring home and enjoy.
