Butterfly Rocks

Categories: Crafty's Projects, Rocks, and Whimsy.

It is the time of year when the butterflies are beginning their long migration south. We recently visited the Cobourg Ecology Garden, (Coboug Ontario) and I decided to make a few decoupaged butterfly rocks to leave in their rock garden. If you notice, one rock doesn’t fit the theme. It is a painted bird rock that I decided to take to the gardens too. I added some positive messages to my rocks this time … spread your wings, fly free, smile, family and a heart. There is one garden dedicated to rocks, and the sign says it all. I left

We were so lucky to have a week away at a cottage recently.

The Fisguard Lighthouse is a favourite place to visit on our trips to British Columbia. I can’t believe that I haven’t shared photos from this place.

A few years ago our granddaughter said this was the place she wanted to visit with us. So on a foggy September day off we went to climb the stairs leading up to the lighthouse and then to climb the circular stairs inside. Naturally we had to count the stairs

Decoupage Rocks

Categories: Crafty's Projects, Nature Crafts, Rocks, and Whimsy.

The latest project I’m working on is decoupage rocks. I did a lot of rock painting which was lots of fun but I wanted to change it up a little bit. This craft is fantastic for those that say they can’t paint on rocks. All you have to do is paint the whole rock one colour and then add some photos. My inspiration for this craft came from my mother in law many years ago when she gave us some rocks she had decoupaged. She was a crafter just like me. Unfortunately after about 35 years the flowers on this
