Diamond Painting

Recommended Posts

Have any of you tried the diamond painting kits?   I have been studiously ignoring them since I first saw them, but so many people in the coloring community are getting into them now.   I saw one that I liked but didn't want to spend $45 so trotted off to amazon and found one for a more reasonable $12.99 that I decided to try for one of Mini Fluffy Bunny's christmas presents. 

I just started it yesterday and I am really enjoying it.   I find I get the relaxation effect like I do with coloring because I have to really think about the "drill" placement.   

This might be a great option for those of you that are worried about "ruining" a picture or not being able to make color choices.

I've watched a few videos on Youtube and a lot of people order from aliexpress.com.  I know a lot of people order art supplies from there and wish.com.   I've ordered from wish before with good luck.   I checked out the pricing at aliexpress and it's quite reasonable.   I will probably order my next one from there.  Reading reviews for each "shop" there is very important if you do try them out.

There are several "shops" on aliexpress where you can use your own picture to create one.  There are some review videos about different shops on YT and there is a rating system.   Depending on how long it takes me to complete this first one (and I think I've sped up a bit since I first started already), I might order a custom one of my husband's beloved papillon who passed away a few years ago.  I can work on it while he's at work and keep it a surprise, I think.

I bought one on amazon the other day to test, but it's not here yet. I meant to link you one the other day, and shiny things attacked and I never did.

I'm enjoying it.  It's just the distraction I need right now because I have to focus enough my mind can't wander, but it's not as stressful as some other hobbies because the colors are already chosen and I'm just filling in the blanks.

I saw this one and thought it would be really cute for the baby's nursery.  They love cats.  I love butterflies and it's got a soft fantasy feel.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.

      I want to paint my hallway bright orange, my sons room bright sea green, and then the dilemma: What color for the laundry?

      Since April we have been looking for a house that has at least one bedroom on the main floor in one of several neighborhoods that are not too far (half hour or less) from our doctors and our kids.  We keep escalating what we are willing to pay.  We keep relaxing the “must haves” — but every house we have wanted has either gone under contract before we even saw it, or gone under contract as we were in the process of offering for it.  It is very discouraging.  I feel that I am living in limbo ever since the pandemic.
