Beach Treasury

As you can imagine, the beaches in Miami are beautiful.  Sometimes the ocean is as smooth as a turquoise mirror.  

Other time during bad weather, ocean is quite rough and dark in color.

My recent visit to the beach was not very successful.  When I decided to go to the beach, it was clear with a few clouds.  The raining season in South Florida begins in the morning where the sky is virtually clear with only a few clouds.  Almost every afternoon is filled with fast-moving thunderstorms originating from the everglades (west of Miami).  It’s the same pattern almost every day.  You can almost set your watch with this daily weather occurrence.  The beautiful part of the raining season is as fast as the thunderstorm appears, it disappears and we are left with a beautiful rainbow.

Upon my arrival at the beach, I saw interesting sea shells and began collecting them.  Ten minutes later, after laying out my beach towel and collecting sea shells, the smooth turquoise ocean turned violent as the wind picked up.  The clouds collected in the sky very quickly over the beach.  Within minutes from the first wind gust the sky opened with heavy rain.  I found myself huddling under an umbrella of the neighboring beach resort; stuck with my towel and sea shells and no where else to go. 

During the ten minutes of the down pour, I looked at the sea shells that I had collected.  That is when I first conceived my idea to create gift  boxes.  That day, I designed 4 gift boxes.  These gift boxes can be used for many different occasions; such as anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, baby showers, graduations, etc.
