Ok, so this is weird, probably really weird, but I recently got into the painted rock scavenger hunt in my area and have been having fun biking and hunting the woodland trails of my local community for rock gems. I have found some really cool rocks that I have added to my collection. Some I keep, and others I re-hide, but recently I came across a piece of a tree that had been sawed into a thick slice. I noticed that someone had used a chainsaw to cut criss cross lines across the top of the tree trunk that was left behind.
Being a lover of games, I decided to drag the large piece of wood home with me and used my wood burner to burn some solid lines into the top and then went out in search of round rocks which I painted with X and O’s and created a rustic, natural tic tac toe game that now sits on my front porch.
I know it’s weird, but the pandemic has ignited my creativity beyond art, writing and cooking, and now I’m thinking outside of the box, or in this case, outside of the rock.
Whatever you’re into, games, biking, hiking, creating, do something kind of crazy, you might just rock it!
