In our travels over the years I have developed an annoying habit. Annoying for my husband, not me. Everywhere we went, I would collect small rocks at the beach or during long drives. It was my way of quite literally taking a piece of the country I was visiting back with me to cherish the moments spent relaxing and taking in the sights, culture and wonder every country has to offer.
His annoyance finally found relief when I discovered rock painting. Finally all those rocks I collected over the years would be put to good and creative use!
I turned to Pinterest for inspiration and was dazzled by all the amazing designs out there. Being a novice I chose a few basic designs for inspiration.
Here are the patterns I came up with.
First up I did a few ladybugs and bees as well as flowers to create a rock flower garden of sorts. These went really well with my houseplants.
The next set was an abstract design that beautifully glowed and matched my house shaped lava lamp.
I found yet another very vibrant set pattern that went really well with my small bamboo plant.
And last but definitely not the least I discovered kindness rocks. And kindness really rocks!
I placed them at my work from home desk and they serve as a daily reminder of the times we live in and that kindness is the one thing that should come easily to all of us.
I still have one set of rocks left and am contemplating either another set of kindness rocks for my office desk or a medley of mandala designs on rocks. Still haven’t made up my mind!
Until next time!
