I’m a big fan of painted rocks. I like them, and I like painting them myself.

I’ve probably painted hundreds over the years, starting back in the early 1970s.

You can find a rock most anywhere you look, or you can buy bunches of them in craft stores, or gardening centers.

The paint I use is acrylic, which comes in all kinds of pretty colors, and dries fast. I usually try to seal with a clear coat, too.

I do these just for fun, but I also give them as gifts, and for the ongoing Kindness Rock fad that happens all over the world.

“You Rock”

With one little rock

From Rock-a-bye-baby, to

Rock around the clock

Rock ‘n roll with Buddy, and

Jenny from the block

Find a painted rock

Happiness unlock

We rock your world,

And I have to say

You’ll be rocked

Day by day

When I leave some rocks to be found, I put one of my labels on the back. It says:

I’ve painted rocks for all kinds of holidays, and/or also just a nice, funny, or uplifting message on them.

Sometimes I actually find a rock someone else has left around town. That’s always fun. I post it to the groups, and then re-hide it for someone else to find. 🙂

There are lots of little everyday things a person can do to show kindness to others. Even if you’re just being nice, the other person is appreciative of this, whether they tell you or not, I think. These could be as simple as holding open a door for someone, complimenting them for their clothes or hairstyle, letting someone go ahead of you in line somewhere, or just plain old listening…really listening to someone, and caring about what they are saying – not thinking random thoughts when they are speaking, waiting for your turn to talk. I try to do all of these on many occasions.

I’ve painted many rocks, called Kindness Rocks, and I leave them all around town for people to find. They are fun to paint and I hope whoever finds them gets a smile or a good feeling from them. I try to make them cute or funny, or just a word or two of something uplifting…such as ‘smile’, ‘hope’, ‘believe’, ‘yes’, ‘peace’, etc. I will also paint a butterfly, or ladybug, or tree, or flower, just anything simple and fun onto the rocks.

Here are few photo of some:

Yesterday was the final day of the Halloween Challenge for this year. I’ve had fun painting all the rocks, and hope you enjoyed seeing them.

The last prompt to use was ‘costume’. I was busy with Halloween things, so never got this last one posted, but here it is. 🙂
