If you're a parent, there's a good chance that your little one (or one of your little ones) loves to collect rocks. I've always loved to watch the kids carefully select which rocks are "good ones" and wonder what it is that makes a rock "good" or "bad". I typically make the kids leave them outside (otherwise our house would be FULL of rocks), except for a few.
Little J continues to collect rocks and also takes the time to pick out a few here and there for his brothers, hubs and I. I usually leave the ones he's chosen for me outside on the front step, but last week it hit me that I should cherish this act of his a little more than I do.
So I went to Micheals and bought a small wooden box, some beautiful paint and got to work.
I had been looking for a teal box for my office space for a while now, so I decided to paint the box in this gorgeous colour and to then glue one of the rocks that J had picked out for me on to the top.
I'm so thrilled with how it turned out and love that this hobby of his will forever be frozen in time.
