CAROLYN SHAWGO is looking for SAND DOLLARS, and its for a good cause. She paints them then sells them by donation at SLEEPY MONK COFFEE ROASTERS (www.sleepymonkcoffee.com), 1235 S. Hemlock St. in Cannon Beach, which is owned by Carolyns granddaughter, SARAH CONYERS, and JOEL BERNHARD.
Some of her work is pictured. Its a labor of love, as all of the donations go to the Cannon Beach Food Bank. We have sold over 100 this year, Carolyn said.
Have some sand dollars youd like to donate? Give her at call at 503-739-3560.
I started painting sand dollars for fun and then was invited to paint them for a wedding, Carolyn explained. After that I had requests to paint them for several different events. It has evolved over the years and it is now my therapy. This is my way of giving back because I have been so blessed.
