You Rock My World


We’ve been going outdoors more now that the weather is better. It still isn’t as warm as I would like it but it is good enough for a nice stroll, even a nice picnic by the lake. We went out as family the other weekend and I had myself a blast. I think everyone else enjoyed themselves as well. We went where there was enough lawn to lounge on and enough water to skip pebbles on. The kids and I even brought back some as souvenirs. We’re a sentimental kind after all.

There have been, however, many rocks collected over many holidays that have disappeared somewhere in this house. I’m sure when we choose to deep clean this house, we’ll find seashells, unusual looking twigs and other nature given memorabilia that I doubt we’ll match to the specific holiday. Instead of doing the same thing over and over again, I decided to do something different. Sometimes ideas come like strokes of genius and other times all I can hear are crickets and so I took the opportunity to do something about it instead of letting the idea fade.

With just a few ingredients – choice of pebbles and acrylic paints – we set on a mission to transform the rocks into postcards of our holiday. We painted our favorite memory on to the rock and now they are sitting snuggly in our garden. Some of them have made their way into the house as paperweights! What a brilliant idea, if I can say so myself.

Have you ever tried your hand at rock crafts? I’d love to hear about it if you have. Leave a comment.
