Anchor's Away - BBA July Challenge

https://www.etsy.com/listing/157799543/anchor-mr-and-mrs-champagne-flutes
This month's challenge at the Blogging Business Artisans is Vacation Time brought to us by Sarah of Magnolia Surprise. Sarah says: "We are into vacation season in July -- create something that brings back a favorite vacation memory, something that represents a place you've visited or one you'd like to visit, colors or scents associated with a special place, or perhaps something funny that happened on a vacation. Make it fun!!"

Coming Soon!

Summer time and vacation always remind me of water. When I was growing up, we went to Branson, MO every year for vacation and almost always rented a pontoon and spent our days out on the water. As an adult I've owned a ski boat and some jet skis. Jesse and I used to go boating quite often in the summer. And now we own our air boat, so boating is a big part of our summers.

I've noticed the nautical trend going strong lately and my anchor cuff links and anniversary card have done very well. I decided to expand this line with lots of new items. I added champagne flutes, shot glasses, earrings, wood invitations and a matching guest book! This challenge was just what I needed to get those creative juices flowing and get some new items listed!

  4. I think growing up in the midwest mandates vacationing and even spending every weekend near water! We always were at the lake and my dad still takes his boat out as often as he can. What great memories and fabulous items Edi!
