I always hunt for shells and pretty rocks on my vacations. I like to make crafts with my finds, so I have something to remind me of my vacations. I love the blue jars! I think I will make a jar for each of the families that vacation with us. That will help them remember our summer together!

I'm not anywhere near a beach and don't vacation anywhere near one, but I am thinking this idea would be neat to make with some prairie or desert items in it, like maybe a bit of fosslized wood, some interesting rocks and some dried plants. I even have one of those old jars!

Just getting back from vacation this is a perfect reminder of how amazing and peaceful it was.
