WHIMSICAL COLLAGE GREETING CARDS

What’s on my Art Studio Table? A plethora of collage greeting cards! The starting point for these cards was a stack of printed postcards that someone gave me ages ago. Layering papers & adding glitter & gems is just so addicting. (Not to mention that all my problems go away while I’m cutting & pasting!)

HARBOR SEAL PUP GOES FOR A SWIM & A RIDE ON MOM’S BACK!

One of the newest Harbor seal pups was being annoyed by a sea gull who thought pecking the pup’s tail might somehow be a meal.  The Harbor seal mom chased the gull away several times & then decided it was time to take her pup for a swim.  The pesky gull followed the pup right to the edge of the water.  The pup climbed onto mom’s back & off they swam!

HARBOR SEAL PUP RESCUED IN 2013 GIVES BIRTH TO HER FIRST PUP!

THIS IS THE MOST HEART WARMING HARBOR SEAL STORY!  In 2013 there was a pup named “Roxy” who had a fishing line cutting into her flesh and was rescued.  The line was removed and the Harbor seal pup was treated and released.  Right away she swam back to the seal colony at Casa Beach and rejoined the group!  Now in 2018, she has showed up at the beach with her very first birth of a Harbor seal pup, which has been named “Strummer”.  It really is amazing to see the seal who was struggling now giving birth to a new member of the La Jolla Harbor seal colony.
