This means that even if we possess a modicum of talent and some skills, we have to put it on the backburner to do the more routine things of life.

DIY Stone Craft Ideas
Here Are Some DIY Stone Craft Ideas That Will Make You Feel As If You Are High On Life:
Pebbles and stones as the base: When you start working on stone arts and crafts ideas that you will do yourself, the first thing that you need to do is start collecting stones that you can use. When you are collecting such stones, we are sure that you will come across some pretty stones that are good to look at but too small to do anything with. Use these stones to line a glass container at the base and fill it up with other things so that you have some pretty to arrange your flowers or other decorations with.
Wall art and hangings: Another good idea for DIY stone art work is that of sticking small stones on wall art. You can make these art figures look as if they are based on the primitive styles of art. It can look like abstract art that seems to have a different perspective every time you look at it. You can either add a frame around the wall art that you do or leave it just like that making it look almost but not quite a part of the wall itself.
Painting ideas for any surface: Some stones almost seem to call upon an artist to paint on them and you can do this too. And even if you are not too sure about how steady your hand is with a paintbrush, then you can stencil the drawing on to the stone and then fill it up with paint instead of directly painting it on. Starting from the simplest figures to complicated ethnic art, the possibilities of stone art that you can do yourself are unlimited. You can also create a texture on a smooth stone by sticking spangles and other things on to the stone.
Paperweights and placeholders: The smooth and reasonably sized stones can be used as paperweights and you can decorate it, to use as paperweights. This can range from the most complicated motifs to something as simple as a quote to keep you going.
