So Many Seashells...

So I have an extensive, growing collection of shells. Everytime I go to the beach, I come home with a bag full of shells... and I love the beach so you can do the math. Beyond clutter my home with them (I'm running out of space), I'm trying to figure out what to do with them. I made a mosiac table with them (still needs more resin to cover), but I know there's more. These sailor's valentines are kind of neat. Most of the craft ideas I'm finding are kind of hokey or are like hippy jewelry (not my style). Why do so many craft sites not include pictures? I mean, I have an imagination and can figure things out pretty well on my own, but sometimes things that sound like great ideas end up turning out pretty ass, and if someone's going to all the trouble of writing step by step instructions, then post a picture! Is it that hard? I usually just go by pics for ideas, and figure out and change the process on my own. Sorry, rant there. Back to shells. So yeah, I have a growing collection of miscellanous jars, candy dishes, and random spots for displaying my shells... I just know there's some fantastic plan for all of them... until then I'll just keep collecting. (And woohoo! I'm going to the beach in Florida in 2 weeks and will get more to add!)
