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.

      Yes, it's oral thrush!  Treating it with miconazole gel 4 times a day.  Whoever decided to flavour it chocolate orange is a flipping genius!
      Also needing 1 litre of electrolyte solution per day because my steroid load is killing my levels.  Tomorrow's the last day of prednisolone, thank goodness.  Fingers crossed it's done the job, because I'm still having the occasional wobble with breathing. 
      I see the practice nurse on Monday.

      I'm not able to update the logos to the fall ones today -- there's a bug that is solved in a recent update version to fix it, but I don't have the time to do that until next week. Until then, we are still living in an endless summer friends!

      Today is a "I ain't wearing pants" day. Yesterday was pretty shitty so today I'm doing as little as I can get away with.

      Second Covid vax is currently kicking my butt. Fever, chills, body aches, exhaustion, etc. 
      Miserable, but so so grateful to be vaccinated. Sure as hell beats actual Covid.

      Started prednisolone tablets today because the asthma inhaler isn't enough. Now I have a sore throat and feel like I have a cold coming.  Need the tablets because breathing isn't an optional body function.  Really don't need the tablets if I have an infection brewing.

      My husband commented this morning about how nice the weather is after a cold front moved in last night. Before I could stop him, he asked out loud if I thought this meant an early fall for us.
      That's like when you live up north and start talking about an early spring...
      Be careful, the weather gods are always listening.

      Grew up fundie-adjacent. My mother called herself a recovering fu**tamendalist, & she was not given to swearing. Thankfully she raised me as free of religious weirdness as she was capable. Her mother is all the regressive things -- racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-semitic, ableist, fundamentalist Protestant nonsense, all of it, & longing for a golden past that never existed.
      I'm an atheist with a bit of an obsession about fundies, particularly of the Christian varieties cuz that's what I'm surrounded by. I've been reading this forum for well over a decade now & finally decided to make an account.
      Thanks for having me here.
