Rustic Rock Games

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!

 

 

The Art of Zenful Play

I love the combination of mindful/mindless activities with the mix of strategic fun.  Is it possible to have both?  Yes it is! Tim and I continue creating new games and Zencala is one of our newest creations.  We custom make board games, which are made out of solid oak or poplar wood.  Choose your colors and prepare to have hours of zenful fun as there are over 100 ways to play!

BrightStar Entrepreneur Hatch Award

Very excited to announce that our new game, Therapy Cubes won the Hatch Entrepreneur Award last night!

I have often been told that I work to hard, but it’s different when you love what you are doing.  Creating has always been my passion whether it is writing, painting or creating games.

I am so excited to share the news about winning the Hatch award, but also excited to help others follow their own passions and reach their dreams!  If you believe, you can succeed!

 

Are you Following your Creative Passions?

Creating is my passion, whether its through food, art, writing, or creating new games!  We recently launched one of our new dice games on Kickstarter.  Also available on Tomorrow River Games.

I would love to hear what your creative passions are.  Another passion of mine is helping people to follow their own creativity and talents.
