With millions of Americans staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are wondering how to keep themselves occupied. Activities, like internet surfing or streaming an endless amount of shows and movies, can keep people entertained, but it also puts a considerable amount of strain on the eyes and the body.
Crafting is a fun and unique alternative to repetitive eye strain. Diamond Art Club makes creative and affordable art kits painting with “diamonds” to create beautiful works that anyone can do at home.
I have found it is very easy to do while watching movies, even if you look up, it’s easy to get right back to where you were. It’s also very relaxing, unlike sewing or cross stitch, since it doesn’t have to be perfect or require skill. It’s not frustrating at all, just simple and up front and easy and relaxing.
I love how the Diamond Art Club kits look sparkly and pretty and to me it seems like a mix of cross stitch, puzzles and paint by numbers. I have a really large one, so I spend a lot of time working on it but I know I will feel accomplished and I will be able to tell people that I placed all of the diamonds on a huge canvas to make a gorgeous picture.
i also like that I always have something to work on when so i don’t feel lazy while watching movies or just hanging out. It’s also easy to start back up again, it requires no planning and I can just easily come back to it at any time!
Below are just a few of the many designs they have available at Diamond Art Club:
