Rockin' On

I have been looking at all the cool things everyone has been making and I wanted to link up too.  Of course that means I have to actually make something on my long list of stuff I want to do (a list long enough I don't dare call it a to-do list).  But first a shout out to Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for giving me a reason to get off my duff and get something made.

I was so excited about my alphabet rocks, that I couldn't wait for Monday.  
You can read how I made them here.

How else can I use those magnets?  

Making words of course!!  I tried painting a tree, but it looked horrid.  I went instead to my scrapbooking stash of paper and made this tree.  I attached it with Mod Podge (I have a big jar) and did a top coat to try to protect it.  

But then I was having too much fun with my rocks so I decided to try some numbers.  I used puffy paints to dot the blue rocks that were leftover from trying to find enough clear rocks (no real craft stores near-by, long story for another time).  
I wanted my kinders to match the dots to the number so I printed out some numbers.  I couldn't decide which color I liked the best, so I printed them in several colors and made them all into magnets.  I'm getting to be a pro!  

What's on the back of my cookie sheet you ask?  Fabric!  I got the idea from Amanda Madden here.  Now if I can just win a Silhouette Cameo to add cute letters.  Maybe I will even make it to the big city and Target, so I can make Amanda's dice containers.  Too much to do and not enough time.  Back to work (or is it back to play?).
