Monday Morning Mosaics

The mosaic today is all about the ocean and a handful of wonderful artisans who feature her beauty!

Growing up, one of the things I loved most about summer was camping and I always begged for spots that were right near the ocean. I loved the ocean best. I wasn't into sun bathing or checking out the guys but I loved to explore the tide pools, body surf and swim within the waves. Fascinating during daylight or at night, it was, in my mind, the perfect place to spend a long weekend.
