    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    It’s been since April that I posted a new “found on the beach” photoset. For the most part they’ve been keeping the beach fairly clean. The last few weeks though, it’s been a wreck. Shards of broken plastic, tons of bottles, and of course, the normal tampon applicator. Ugh. While looking for a place to lay out the days findings I was only able to spot one area that had

  • found on the beach // lighters

    The day I spent picking trash up on the beach (see here!) I realized I seemed to be finding 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 special picture of them on their own. By the time I was done, maybe an hour and a half

    I finally found a beach I can do one of my favorite hobbies at! Mickey and I had visited a beach right before everything thawed hoping to find some glass. I was super stoked because, although we found barely any glass, there was tons of trash. I couldn’t wait to go back and collect it for one of my found on the beach trash photos. I went back right after
