I am a lucky girl. My friends have many talents. I have a friend who makes the most adorable baby moccasins, a friend who is an amazing sewer and has made my son a number of beautiful items for his nursery, a friend who is a fantastic photographer and captured very special photos of my family last fall, and most recently a friend who is so incredibly artistic and started making story stones.
My friend E for some time has collected interesting and pretty rocks from the beach. She has found a number of heart shaped rocks which she has framed and made into beautiful pieces of artwork for the walls in her home.
A short time ago she posted some “story stones” on her Instagram. Holy hidden talent. For real. I had one of those “you could totally sell those” moments.
At the time our favourite book to read was Kid Tea by Elizabeth Ficocelli. Our favourite page is the painting page where it says “blobs of yellow, shake like jello” at which point we shake our heads back and forth. It is always good for a cute little boy giggle :) So when E offered to make a set of story stones to go along with one of Max’s favourite books, Kid Tea immediately came to mind.
We received our set of story stones this week and all I can say is wow. How cool are these right!? Not only does Max have a special set of stones to go along with a favourite book, but these are so educational; teaching him words, colours and sequence. Love, love, LOVE!!
(these are only about 1/3rd of the rocks E made for us).
Thanks E. You are the best.
We are now in full vacation mode in our home... complete with afternoon mother-son naps today.. Lovely :) We have a whole two weeks of summer fun ahead of us!
