Just Call Me Martha

When I moved to California in August, I quickly started filling my days with making crafts. It gave me something to do once all of the unpacking was over. It kept me busy and my mind off of missing people and things from back home. Crafts was a good idea. Over time, I scaled back on the crafts but one remained left unfinished. I finally finished it! 

This is the pin that I saw on Pinterest that inspired the whole project....
This is how mine turned out. 
I think it turned out really great. Would I make another one? NO! It was a ton of work. Each one of those rocks had to be placed and glued down. You had to figure out which rocks would lay certain ways, etc. Needless to say it was a big craft. 

If you decide to do this craft here's what you'll need: 

Glue. I used E600.
Rubber Mat. I used a shelf liner.
Rocks. I got mine from the Dollar Store.
Sissors.

I think I used probably around seven or eight bags of rocks. It's about two and a half feet long and a little over one foot wide. It also took two tubes of glue. All in all, I think I have about 15 dollars into this craft. It looks really cute by the door to set your shoes on. So all in all I think it was worth the $15.00 and my time.

LOVE IT! I would totally do that if I had a house! Sounds like a ton of work, but looks like it was well worth it!
