Here are a few photos from the Sanibel Shell Fair this year. It was great seeing old friends and meeting new friends. Rachel, in the first photo, had been on a trip with me over eight years ago. She recently took a class on making sailor valentines with the talented Sandy Moran. This year she entered a beautiful piece of work as you can see. Great job Rachel and congrats on a ribbon!
I enjoyed meeting the lovely Karen Robertson. Her work is amazing. I look forward to talking with her again and seeing more of her beautiful creations.
I always find it rewarding to mingle with fellow shellers and artistic creators of the sea
at the Sanibel Shell Fair.
