Love Rox

One of my girlfriends had her Birthday this week and she's one of those that really have everyting already. You know, the no kids-double income variety with Dollars to spare. Anyway, what do you gift someone like that ? Of course I made her one of my lovely canvas folded Art cards, but I wanted to gift a present kinda thingy as well....Then on top of that, with our BIG move just around the corner, many of my supplies were already packed and I just happened to see those rocks I found and collected a few years ago. We were then taking a walk in one of the riverbeds in our area and I noticed rocks in the shapes of hearts. "Mother Nature's tough love or Love Rox" I call them. So I took a lot of those rocks home, big and small and I paint them with little messages as gifts. So I thought this particular friend would fit one of those Love Rox and I painted it with red (she loves red) and dots (do I need to say she loves dots too ?) She LOVED the gift, that made me really happy :) She will use it as a doorstop or a paperweight. .....I need to go and search for more of those love rox, because I noticed that I only have 1 small one left....maybe I'll find some on my way up North ...
these are two that I made for Christenings of a friends 2 sons a while back

It's no coincidence that these little heart-shaped rocks are everywhere you go--this is the reason--I love these!

How cool! All the rock, pottery and glass hunting I do every Summer...and never found any heart shaped ones!

Perfect present!

These are wonderful!
I love rocks and painting, but never thought of this amazing combination..especially with heart shaped rocks. :)

Leuk idee Joyce! Prachtige stenen natuurlijk. Maar het meest bijzondere vind ik toch weer je energie om dit nog te doen met jullie BIG move:-) xxx
