Moms Can Fight Bored-At-Home Syndrome By Getting Creative!


Moms are so busy taking care of everyone else that they often forget to take care of themselves. This can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety, which is a mental health condition called "Bored-At-Home Syndrome." In this blog post, we will discuss how moms can fight Bored-At-Home Syndrome by getting creative!

One way to fight boredom is by taking a break with a new, creative hobby. 

One of my favorite ways to get creative is Diamond Art! It is a popular option for moms today, as seen on the DIY Network's show "Project Runway" and in recent articles from The Huffington Post and Buzzfeed. Diamond art allows moms to take time for themselves and turn any moment into something special by making artwork beautiful for the home. 

Thank you, Diamond Art Club, for providing us this amazing LADYBUG painting for us to try out and help with my bored-at-home feelings!

Diamond Art Club, a diamond art brand that is a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers.  Diamond painting is the new creative hobby that’s taking the crafting world by storm. You simply apply colorful resin rhinestones to richly pigmented canvas paintings to create visually dazzling mosaic diamond artworks that sparkle, shimmer, and shine. Diamond art kits range from simple to sophisticated, depending on the size and detail of the painting. 

Diamond Art Club only uses premium canvases and the most reflective diamonds and licenses genuinely unique works of art you won’t find elsewhere. Each Diamond Art Club kit comes stocked with the highest quality materials and comes equipped with everything you need to dive into this relaxing and rewarding craft. 

Kits contain a self-flattening canvas in our patent-pending velvet tarpaulin design, as well as all the color-coded resin rhinestones you need to complete the painting. You’ll also get a comfortable applicator grip, two heart-shaped wax pads, and a craft tray.

Just a little hint- Mother's Day is coming up real quick and so why not help Mom create a masterpiece and get her a Diamond Art Club kit!

The process of creating art can be intimidating. So don't be scared, mom! That’s why the Diamond Art Club, an easy-to-use kit with everything you need to make your next masterpiece. 

The kits come stocked with high-quality materials and instructions.  And it can be shipped right to your door, making it both fun and easy!

 Creating diamond art painting is a straightforward, three-step process:

  • Dip the tip of the applicator tool into the strip of wax.
  • Pick up each diamond by pressing the applicator to the diamond's rounded, faceted side.
  • Apply each diamond to the adhesive canvas template, placing it based on the color-coded chart.

See easy peasy- even for the busy mom!  MOM...It can be easy to get stuck in a rut with day-to-day life… However, getting into your creative side can help stimulate your mind and even help you feel better emotionally! 

Even if you don’t feel like you have any artistic skills, there are LOTS of ways you can use art supplies and techniques to blow off a little steam. Plus, the creative process and feeling of accomplishment when you’ve finished can be really addicting in a great way!

 We have a few more ways you can beat the Bored-At-Home feeling!

 1.     Create a painting or drawing and frame it for your home. This can be done using traditional materials, like crayons on construction paper; watercolors in a paint box; finger paints with a blank canvas! Want to do something really unique? Get crafty with chalkboard art!

2.     Paint pouring is a wonderful painting technique that always comes out unique! It is done by mixing different paint colors with pouring medium in several small containers. Then, you slowly pour small amounts of each color over a canvas. You can choose to pour them over in any amount or order you want—the important thing is to have fun with it. Just be sure you have the canvas set on top of something smaller than it to act as a platform so the paint can drip down and off the edges. Laying out a tarp or some newspapers to catch the drips is a good idea as well.

3.    Coloring- This activity is definitely not just for kids! These days, there are lots of options for adult coloring books. You can even use your kids' coloring books. The most important thing is that it’s a coloring book with a theme that makes you happy. Coloring is a very freeing way to be creative because you can decide how you want every page to look!

4.     Photography-When this is done purely for your own enjoyment, you don’t need a fancy camera to do it! All you need is your phone or even a disposable camera, and you’re on your way! Take pictures of the things that make you happy, or even of things that you want. Maybe go on a nature walk and snap some pics of cool trees, pretty flowers, or animals you come across. Photography has no rules (just as long as you don’t take pictures of other people without consent.) If you’re using your phone, you can also play around with photo editing apps to make your pictures even more unique.
