Message In A Stone

When I saw this photo online, I suddenly remembered the movie of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo. I can't clearly recall, but if I am not mistaken, the title of that movie is "Miss You Like Crazy". Actually, I wasn't able to watch it on a big screen, I was just able to watch it through a DVD. In that movie, Bea was using stones to write down her messages to herself and to the world.  I find it cute! :)

Now, looking at this photo, I realized that there are so many ways to treat these stones with the inscripted messages. From the movie, Bea used to leave the stones in public places after having written down her messages on it, but I was thinking that these stones could also be nice and attractive decorative pieces in your garden, in your living room or even in your kitchen. You can stick it to one part of the wall in your pocket garden, or you can make a lovely center piece by attaching the stones on a plain card board or a piece of plywood. Just add some embellishments and you're all set for a wonderful work of art. You can also stick it to a cork board and frame it to remind you of your thoughts and feelings.  It would be nice if you could date those stones too.

Here is another example of recreating those stones:

I might be including this on my "to do list" this summer and I will make it as a family activity.  Anyway, I'm all set for my home leave next month and I'm just so excited about it! :)
