Greetings from Seaside, OR! There’s always been something I love about the beach, so to match the beach theme I made a shirt that says “If I get crabby, take me to the beach.”
Many years ago, when I was still getting free parenting magazines in the mail, I read some advice that stuck with me.
It said, regarding children, “if you’re dealing with a crab, add water.” 🙂 The idea was, of course, that a gumpy kiddo would often change mood quickly if allowed to play in the bath, a baby pool outside, a bucket of soapy water, a spray bottle, etc.
I think that advice may apply to me and I haven’t outgrown it! Now that we don’t live super far away, I make sure we visit the coast at least once a summer.
Then you can visit each post below to get the other designs from the group. Make sure you let us know if you make something – we love to see how the projects turn out and how you put your own colors and spin on things.

USEFUL TOOLS AND SUPPLIES
- Cricut or Silhouette

- Sticker paper – printable vinyl or Avery full sticker sheets are better than Cricut sticker paper in my opinion.
