We do a lot of rock collecting over here. I've enjoyed collecting rocks since I was a kid and when I met Dr. J I was introduced to a whole subculture of buying rocks and crystals. Needless to say everywhere we go our family ends up bringing rocks, fossils and crystals home.
I love the feel of a smooth rock and remember hearing the concept of 'Gratitude Rock' from the book The Secret. The concept is that by having a tangible object to remind you and help you focus your gratitude, you will attract good energy.
I decided to combine my love of words with some smooth rocks and make gratitude rocks.
I bought these adhesive stickers at Target and rubbed them onto smooth rocks. For rocks that were not as smooth I simply brushed on a layer of Mod Podge first and let it dry before adding the adhesive and repeating the step.
After sticking on the adhesive I gave it a few brush overs with the Mod Podge
I'm pretty happy with the final result, especially with the Red Rock which we find plenty of close to home.
I will be mailing these to friends and family with thank you notes as needed.
Do you believe in the concept of a Gratitude Rock?
