ROCKS IN A BOX
Men do not want flowers, jewelry, or other silly gifts for Valentine's Day. What do men want? I have tried to think like a man (G-rated man) and have concluded that they want a lady friend, food, sticks, rocks, and other manly things. So...this year my Other Half is getting just that, ROCKS in a BOX from his Lady Friend!
I gathered and cleaned 14 rocks from my neighbors yards (just kidding) and came up with 7 Favorite Memories and 7 Promises for the future. Using rubber stamps, acrylic paints, permanent markers, and paint brushes I decorated each rock to represent one of the favorite memories or promises. I will include a note which briefly explains each rock. However, I will not give the note to him until after he has made a few humorous guesses.
Would you like to peak at my rocks?
Some of the rocks had messages on both sides:
My Box was a re-used tissue box! I removed the plastic pieces from the box, placed my note upside down in the bottom, wrapped each rock in tissue paper, and then stuffed the top with more tissue paper.
