Inexpensive DIY Wall Art~

I have been loving all of the framed rock/geode/crystal art that is popular right now.

Lucky for me, I have an 8-year-old who is obsessed with collecting rocks.  At first, I was a little bit annoyed that rocks were taking over the bedroom he shares with his 9-year-old brother.
But once I really started looking at them,
I've been down-right impressed with some of the rocks he's come home with.
Which gave me an idea.
A true light bulb moment.

Thought For a Thursday~

It's all about your attitude...

The same boiling water that softens a potato, hardens an egg.

It's about what you're made of.  Not the circumstances.


We choose our path in life by our reactions to the events that are thrown our way.  It's not always easy to choose to be happy.  But it can be done.  Choose joy.
