I recently (last July so I guess not too recently) decided to try selling my crafts at fairs, any bit of money helps right? Life circumstances are such that an crafts I made had to be made with very little out of pocket expenses.  With this in mind I went to Pintrest and looked for rock crafts.  I am a rock girl through and through so I have a ton of rocks on hand.  I found story stones almost immediately and fell in love with the idea. What a wonderful tool to encourage creativity in children.  These are what I came up with...

Family Time


Fishing Trip


Day at the Beach


Family Vacation


Camping Trip


Pirate


Fairy Tale


I made a pouch for each set and attached directions









Thanks for looking

Two suggestions:
-get into schools, daycares or group programs.  I work with primary special needs kids.  Many have fine motor problems and the clones would be perfect to handle. 

-get a Kickstarter.com project going to set up a base business.  I would buy!

I am so pleased you all like them. I am never sure if what I make is other people's style as well...I am a bit of an oddball  Smiley

A few of you have asked if I have an etsy store...not yet but Diginit Designs will be up and running in the next two weeks.
