I love the beach! We had a wonderful family vacation combing the beach, eating seafood, and just relaxing and chatting away as the waves crashed along the shore. (I think that was the best therapy for me!!!) As we walked along the beach path there was this “rock garden”. It just made me smile as I read the weathered board and looked at all the different painted rocks.
How simple yet powerful! It hit me that this is something I could do with my students! I go back to the doctor this week and I’m hoping to be cleared to go back to school. I would love to involve my Pre-K students in painting rocks and making a special Kindness Garden at school. I teach my little ones that they can make a difference (even at 4 years old) and we role play ways to show kindness. This would be something they could be involved in as well as the school community. I can just imagine the kids on their way home from school or church choosing a rock or adding one of their own to share. I’m excited!
The sentiment on my card today says it all. A little kindness, whether it’s a card, a smile, or a painted rock can brighten someone’s day. I hope you are inspired to spread a little kindness today.
This simple card layout is one that would work with whatever Designer Series Paper and sentiments you have. I used the Abstract Impressions Stamp set with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits. The ribbon is wrapped around the DSP layer and tied with Linen Thread. The DSP is from the retired Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack.
I have another project to share with you that ties in with today’s theme.
I bought some Chocolate “Rocks” at a gift shop and knew I could use them to make little gifts for my team members. The sentiment is just perfect!
The stamp set and punch are from the Darling Label Punch Box. It includes a beautiful tin filled with crafting must-haves…a versatile 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, clear stamp block, 2 ink spots, and a matching punch.
The Darling Label Punch Box would make a great gift for a crafty friend or family member! Shop now during BONUS DAYS and get a $5 coupon for every $50 you spend. (*See below for more information about Bonus Days.)
I hope you enjoyed today’s projects. I would love to hear from you! Leave a comment sharing an act of kindness…either something you did or something someone did for you. I will pick a random winner to receive some blog candy! I am blessed with many wonderful people in my life. I strive to pay forward the kindness shown to me. An act of kindness that will forever stand out in my mind was a beautiful handmade prayer shawl I received in the mail after my dear friend, Sister Corda, passed away. It was from someone I had never met that reads my blog. I was so touched and comforted by her gift and thoughtfulness. I can’t thank her enough! I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy in April and she is truly a wonderful and special person!
Have a great day!
