  • Rock Painting Fun for All Ages
    If you're looking for an inexpensive art or craft activity for yourself or to share with kids, consider the art of painting on rocks. Rock painting may be man's original art form, but these days it is probably the easiest and most fun way to learn to paint.
  • Fight Stress with Rocks
    Mental health experts have long known the value of developing creative outlets to relieve stress. But what if you hate knitting, don't have the resources to take up scrapbooking and are convinced you don't possess a drop of creativity? It might just be time for you get rocking!
  • Craft Trends Reflect Timeless Truths
    Embracing change means actively seeking a position at the leading edge of trends rather than forever scrambling to keep up with the pack. At the same time, it means allowing yesterday's huge trend to ebb into a niche activity where it may survive for months or years before evolving and resurfacing as the next new big thing.
