DIY – Rocking around the Christmas tree! 🎨 My kinda Blogmas: Day 2 β˜ƒοΈ

Hello elf-ryone! πŸ’šβ€οΈ

Welcome to day 2 of My kinda Blogmas! πŸ₯³ It took me so long to think of a name for this one and I’m not even sure if it’s classed as a DIY but we’ll let that slide 🀣. The other day my sister and I used a festive rock painting kit and it’s got to have been the most Christmassy thing we’ve done so far (other than putting up the tree πŸ€”…that felt pretty Christmassy but then it would, wouldn’t it! πŸ˜‚πŸŽ„). We put Home Alone 3 on in the background (I think I laugh the most at that one!), lit some candles, tried to ward the dogs AWAY from the paint and flicked through the kits accompanying booklet to pick a design and were on our merry way to creating the most festive rocks out there! (But then again, I am incredibly biased because I would say that 😏🀣).

We went for the same painting: a snowman surrounded by a starry night sky but with different objects placed on his palm – I chose a snowball and my sister went with a spray bottle because she’s mad about cleaning (any other Mrs Hinch fans out there? 🧼…and now I know that through typing in “cleaning” you’ll get a soap emoji I was unaware existed! You live and you learn 🀣). If I could think of a good pun involving the cleaning brand Bold and boulders I would but there’s no time for that! Check out my camera-roll that captured the super cozy moment perfectly! ✨

Ready to go!
Starting out β›„
Toby thought the table was our sofa when it was covered with a towel so he kept trying to climb onto it before giving up for a snooze 😴🀣.
Mine on the left and my sis did the other one!

We had so much fun!! I’ll admit I’m up and down with feeling festive but this definitely made me feel it! πŸ˜πŸŽ„ I can’t remember the last time I used paint, probably for my bullet journal last December πŸ€”…gosh that’s a horrible thought when it only feels like yesterday but it’s not!! πŸ˜…βŒš Seeing as the kit came with 4 rocks there were two left and I think we were not wanting to focus as much as we had done on getting the previous design right so for the last two rocks we just did random things. My sister painted a heart and I drew a star on half mint, half pale pink and I thought I was being all artistic by making the lighter shades myself but the pink kinda looked like raw meat 🀒…I’m not a vegan/vegetarian, it’s just not what I was going for with a painted rock 🀣. Do you know what, I still love it but it doesn’t win out over the snowman!! β˜ƒοΈ He’s too cool πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ and speaking of “cool”, later that night we saw the Very Merry Countess Christmas Livestream and really enjoyed it! πŸ’ƒπŸ½ (Any other RHONY fans out there?). Here’s to more moments like that all over the festive season! πŸ™Œβœ¨

Have you done any festive crafts? πŸ–ŒοΈ Do you plan to? Have any fun ideas for things to try out? Let me know in the comments! πŸ˜„πŸŽ„ Hop on the sleigh and be on your way πŸ€£πŸŽ…πŸ» (Santa’s an emoji that does NOT come up when I type in his name so I always have to go searching but for you, certainly! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‚). Have a wonderfully festive day peeps! Take care, stay safe and buh-bye! πŸ’šβ€οΈ
