Today's Inspiration: Magic Wishing Stones at Craftbits

It's been awhile since I've published "Today's Inspiration" as vacation and the back to work and life busy-ness took over.  But today I was at Craftbits and saw this post: Magic Wishing Stones.  I like their idea of taking natural rocks and making them magical and special.  I think Nana Bear's classmates would enjoy them. 

However, my delusions of grandeur self envisions something slightly different.  Instead of making a wish and throwing the rocks, I envision using flat marbles and gluing icons to them, such as a heart for love, holding hands for friendship, an airplane for travel, etc., and people can rub or hug or sleep with them under their pillow.  I could even make a small pouch for storage.  hmm...  inspiration.

Well, I probably will do the Craftbit rocks for Nana Bear's class - I can just see them throwing the rocks and giggling.  But I am somewhat enchanted by the bigger project... I can't believe there are only 6 weeks of school left.

Happy Crafting!
