What’s fun about introducing (the real, non-MTV-version-of) the Jersey shore to my out-of-state friends is how little things like having to buy a beach tag to visit the ocean or swimming between the lifeguards’ flags blows their minds.
These visits also remind me of what I now take for granted. Like the luxury of having an ice cream or water ice brought to you on the beach if you just listen for the guy ringing the bell and follow all the kids running to his bicycle/cooler contraption to claim your frozen treat. (Try to refrain from throwing elbows to get that last twin pop). Of course you can have ice cream delivered to you on the beach. What kind of operation do you think we’re running here?!
In addition to celebrating ice cream delivery by bell, I’m hearing sleigh bells and getting ready to celebrate Christmas in July at Home Made with a few fabulous new workshops that will help you get a head start on a handmade holiday.
Make this Peace Wreath out of old felted sweaters on Thursday, July 14 from 6-8:30 PM OR Wednesday, July 20 from 11 AM – 1:30 PM. Cost is $32 and all materials are included.
Create a handmade stocking for someone you love out of an old felted sweater on Tuesday, July 26 from 10 AM – 12 PM OR Wednesday, July 20 from 6-8 PM. Cost is $28 and all materials are included.
As with all our classes, pre-registration with payment is required to reserve your space. Call 609.536.2940 or stop on in to sign up!
So, when the beach becomes too hot and you’re dreamin’ of a winter wonderland, why not take a break and make a little something special for the holidays? (Though, I have kept my Peace Wreath up all year and you might, too!)
Oh, and don’t forget that Home Made will be CLOSED for the holiday weekend (Saturday, July 2 + Sunday, July 3)! Fill up on your craft supplies today or tomorrow and I’ll see ya knittin’ on the beach. (:
