  • found on the beach – mellow yellow

    I’ve been holding on to these photos for quite a few months now. Sadly, I haven’t been doing too much beach combing lately. The last time I went was actually my birthday at the beginning of the month. While there is still more trash than there should be, my favorite spot to hang out is fairly clean in the warmer months. It’s also full of people this time of the

  • pouch update : found on the beach!

    If you already know where this post is going & want to skip reading before anything sells out. Here’s the link to the shop! Enjoy! A bit of a quick recap here – The Dainty Squid actually started as a sewing business. I made and sold zipper pouches from super cute fabrics. My work was sold in boutiques all across the world. Eventually I began to feel burnt out from

    This is a little bit different than my normal found on the beach arrangements. There weren’t too many large items on the beach to be picked up. Woo! The city does a decent job of keeping larger debris off the beach during the warm months. They use a backhoe to push everything to one end where they then scoop it all into a huge dumpster (…that lives on the beach.)

    Just a small ‘found on the beach‘ layout for you here today. In my last beach trash post, I mentioned how the last few times I had been to the beach previous to that visit it was actually very clean. It seemed like the park was on the up and up! There were new picnic benches, a fancy pants wooden fence, and most noticeably of all, it was clean. This

    The weather here in Cleveland is finally warming up, at least for now. Everyone knows we’ll probably get at least one last surprise snow storm because that’s just what happens here. The warm-ish weather had me aching to get back to the beach. It’s been so long since my last found on the beach arrangement but I am back in action… and kind of completely hooked all over again! The

    I’ve been talking a lot about the beach here on the blog these last few weeks. Driftwood forts, presents for strangers + magical sunsets. Beach talk always starts to happen as the weather warms up a little bit more but I recently started following a bunch of beach glass people on instagram and my obsession just went through the roof. I never really realized how serious some people are about

  • found on the beach pouch update!

    Today is the day! The fourth round of limited edition pouches are available.  With each announcement of new limited edition sets of pouches made from custom printed fabric I always ask what you want to see in a future batch and over and over I heard beach trash. It was always in the plans, it was just a matter of time and figuring out how exactly I wanted to photograph

  • found on the beach // balls

    For as long as I can remember I’ve suffered from chronic headaches. I’ve been to the doctor, had CT scans, and tried just about everything. Last year I started having vision problems too so I visited the optometrist who was actually the first person to give me some helpful hints. My vision problems, and subsequently my headaches, were being caused by some overworked muscles in my eyes. Basically I stare

     For the longest time I’ve been wanting to do something more with my beach trash finds but I just haven’t been sure exactly what that is. I would love to leave my arrangements for others to find but I’m not sure how long they’d last with the waves and although doing this has never really been about cleaning up litter (because lets be real here what I’m doing doesn’t even

  • found on the beach – feeling blue

    It’s beach season again! Swimsuits, sun, swimming or… ya know, trash. If you’re a new reader and totally confused already, be sure to check out the tag found on the beach. Last week I headed to my favorite beach to get some fresh air. Still feeling a bit like there was a dark cloud hovering over me I figured spending the evening watching the sun go down over the lake,

    Back in May of last year while wandering the beach I noticed I was seeing a lot of lighters. Every few steps I was finding one. I decided to pick all of them that I found up in hopes that I’d maybe find enough to take a neat picture. By the time I was done, maybe an hour and a half later, I had found fifty lighters total. I decided

  • Found on the Beach

    Last month I opened a Society6 shop. Before doing that I shot a quick little series of photos featuring some of my favorite pressed plants. What was something just for fun ended up being something I really loved and it inspired me to shoot similar photos using other objects. I was brainstorming what to shoot when I spotted a little jar I keep in my curiosity cabinet that is full

  • found on the beach

    Another rainbow edition of my found on the beach series. After I put this one together I realized maybe this wouldn’t be the best way to do them from now on since it looks so similar to the last one. Although, I do like this one much better without the white, black and grey section on the end. With the rainbow layout you’re looking more at the colors than the

  • found on the beach

    Well, I have set a new standard for myself with these found on the beach sets. As someone who organizes just about everything by color – my closet, my DVDs, etc – it’s kind of shocking to me I never thought to do this before. I’m obsessed with how it looks. It was so hard to choose what photos to share because I took so many. I had so much
