About the Author

Elyse Major has always loved making pretty handcrafted objects, and has indulged her love of all things artistic both while working as a communications consultant and as a mother and homemaker. She began blogging about her adventures in DIY several years ago and rediscovered her love of creating – she now has a considerable following and has opened an online shop. She regularly contributes features and articles to magazines such as Romantic Country and Romantic Homes. This is her first book. The author is based in Rhode Island, USA.

Using items from the seashore, holiday essentials, and things you will already have in your home, she has recreated the feeling of summer in these beautiful souvenirs of days spent by the sea. Mermaids made from laundry pegs, shell-topped jars, a beach cottage built from lolly sticks, or a windchime constructed from sticks and shells, are just some of the unique ideas to help you keep your happy summer memories alive throughout the year. Many of the projects use recycled materials, and "tinkering" requires no specialist tools, equipment or techniques – anyone can do it! As well as the 35 projects, there are "Fancy This" alternatives for many of the items, substituting different materials or changing the colours for a different look.
