I am crystal obsessed! Literally. I have crystals threw out my house because I'm one of those "crazy" people who are all about the energy they give off. My house is totally one awesome place radiating all sorts of fabulous energy! If you need some good vibes in your life. This is totally the place to come chill. My crystals have ya covered ;-)
The main two I have sitting on my mantle are a amethyst, which radiates peace & happiness and I also have a citrine, which is suppose to bring you lots of riches ($$$). I use to have a rose quartz, which radiates love sitting up on my mantle as well & it randomly broke one day :( since most of my friends think I'm a wack job with all my crystal energy beliefs, it was a joke for the longest time that since my Quartz broke I wasn't meant to have love in my life lol.... Jokes on all of you though because my daughter, Kitty Magic and hubby all love me, well I think they do anyway lol ;-)
So when the awesome people at Dr.Cool contacted me about doing a review I got all sorts of excited!!! My princess was going to be able to crack open her own crystals!!! Neatest thing ever if you ask me since we are all about sparkly things! Honestly what girl isn't?

And here is the fun part! Cracking these things open! We let Haylie attempt to crack them since technically this is her kit, but she's 3 and yeah.... It did make for some adorable pictures, but she was never going to crack these babies open lol... She did love trying though.
That's when hubby came in handy! After Haylie spent like 5 minutes wacking the geodes, hubby took the hammer and chisel (butter knife in our castle since we don't own a chisel) and cracked these things open! The directions say you can also put them in a sock and wack them with a hammer to open them, but doing it that way you're very likely to get a pile of sparkly crumbs. So butter knife chisel it was.
Ta Da!!!! And after a few minutes getting these things open, we now have pretty crystals :)
They came out wayyyy better than I thought they were considering our very first attempt, the geod kinda exploded and we got a lot of crumbs lol. I think hubby was just too rough with that one, thinking it was a rock and he had go to war with the thing, which you totally DON'T have to do lol... because the rest came out fanatic once he was wayyyy more gentle with them.
