8 Ultimate Painted Rock Monsters For Kids To Make That Will Blow Your Mind

8 Ultimate Painted Rock Monsters For Kids To Make That Will Blow Your MindMy son, Jackson, and I have been making a lot of crafts to put on the blog. It has been a lot of fun. 

It was Jackson’s idea to make these cute rock monsters. He helped me with the title of this post, 8 Ultimate Painted Rock Monsters For Kids to Make Will Blow Your Mind.

I figured it would be too simple to catch his attention. Once I started painting the base colors of the rock monsters he got excited to give them silly faces. He came up with a few of the monsters by himself.

Stitch Fix Review

Stitch Fix Review

Spring Style Inspiration It’s time for another Stitch Fix review! If you do not know what Stitch Fix is, check out this post. I requested a full outfit. I wish I had requested full outfits when I started getting subscription boxes. I ended up with several pieces that do not go with anything. I request pieces that go together now. That is the whole reason I started receiving clothing subscriptions. I needed a new wardrobe that did not consist of all t-shirts and yoga pants. Seriously. I still wear t-shirts and yoga pants. Not everyday. I hope you get some inspiration out of this review.

Stitch Fix Athleisure

 

Stitch Fix Athleisure Review: In this Fix I wanted all the items I saw in one of the pictures on the Stitch Fix blog, except for the leggings. I have several pair of leggings that would go with this athleisure outfit. It’s the picture to the left (or above if you are on your phone). I have requested it each month for at least one of my boxes. I get two boxes a month in my subscription. My stylist hasn’t been able to find any of the pieces UNTIL THIS MONTH. I was SO excited when I opened my box!

I read the note that my stylist sent me. She said that she wasn’t able to find all of the pieces that are in the picture, but she found some that were REALLY close. Keep reading if you want to see what I got!
