Getting pictures of sand crabs is no easy task.
The slightest movement and they immediately
scurry under the sand.
Unlike their cousin, the hermit crab, sand crabs do not live in "borrowed shells";
so I'm not quite sure what this guy was doing with that clear bubble looking thing.
There were many sand crabs to entertain us while at the beach in Bentota.
But unfortunately, not so many shells to be found.
So while at Ikea the other day, I came home with this set of scented beach-inspired clay accents.
And when I saw this post for simple stars, I grabbed some scrap
yarn and started making little starfish.
Turns out, Becca has been doing the same thing as seen on her post Inspired by the Sea.
She has photographed her work beautifully.
And even crocheted pretty little sand dollars, too.
I used my starfish to embellish crocheted gift bags.
You can find another starfish tutorial here.
I also came across this post with some very creative beach-inspired crafting.
It's very hot and humid here today.
I came in sopping wet after doing some outside work.
Think I'll get back to making more starfish (maybe some sand dollars, too.)
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
