Lover’s Cove on Catalina Island
It’s really difficult to stay focused on anything when you live in a hotel on Catalina Island in the summer. The smell of suntan lotion and the sight of my hotel guests parading by my door wearing bathing suits and sundresses really makes me want to drop what I’m doing and head outside.
I’ve been crocheting quite a bit recently because it’s portable and takes very little concentration. I think I cranked out about ten headbands this week. I’m making mostly wool headbands now in anticipation of fall and the Catalina Festival of Art on September 21, 22 & 23.
Here are some of the wool hairbands I just listed in my shop. Don’t forget, if you want to create one of these great headbands yourself, check out my three-part post, starting with DIY – How to Make a Crochet Headband for step-by-step instructions.

Sunrise View of Avalon Harbor From My Window
I love living on Catalina Island but I must admit it can be rather distracting in the Summer. I’m so lucky to have an amazing view of Avalon Harbor and the Pacific Ocean right out my living room window. It provides endless inspiration and beauty and I never tire of seeing it. However, frequently in the Summer, those waving palm trees beckon me to come out and play. The coconuty smell of suntan lotion wafts up to my window and it’s all over. It’s all I can do to keep my mind on whatever I should be doing such as hotel business or projects for my Esty Shop.
My Daughter & I at Lover’s Cove on Catalina Island
Yesterday my daughter and I dropped what we were doing and went out to enjoy the Southern California sun. It’s a slow time of year in the shop which makes for a great excuse when you’re looking for one. The only problem is that it only fuels the fire. That warm, clear, sea water sure did feel great!
