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. 🙂


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

Monthly Shape Adventure – Owl Wonder


Monthly Shape Adventure – Owl Wonder

And Now The End Is Here… Maybe?


Do you remember the Monthly Shape Adventure challenge that I took part in? It was so much fun to find shapes, each month a different one.

The challenge has ended, but Veronica has been so sweet to give me the award for participating…and…she gifted me with her wonderful book, “Owl’s Shape Adventure”!

This is a very colorful book, with lots of shapes, numbers, and colors to find within the pages, along with a cute story of the Owl’s day of adventure. I’m sure any child learning about shapes would love to have this book, also.

I’m planning on giving this book to my grand-daughter, who is 4 years old, and loves books. She’s also a great fan of owls, and always has been.

Thank you so much, Veronica, for hosting the challenge, and the gift of your book. I look forward to following Owl’s adventures on your blog.

You can find Veronica’s blog at the above link. It’s a fun place to visit!

WRITING 101 … EXPAND A COMMENTcropped-seal_v2-03

In today’s assignment #8, we were asked to find a comment we’d made to someone on their blog, and expand it. Write more about our thoughts on the subject. I know sometimes I write a comment, but it is just a short sentence or two. I may have more to say about it, but don’t want to take up so much space on their comment section. So, to keep talking about the subject, I can write as much as I want to, on my blog, creating a post about it.

I recently read a person’s post about creating a group of photos to give to a friend. The subject was owls. She’d take pictures of any owls she came across, such as in the stores she went to. There were all kinds. I thought that was a great idea, instead of buying every one she saw, to just take a picture of it.

Here’s the comment about it that I left:

“What a cool idea! My grand-daughter just turned 2 yesterday, and loves owls, too. I’m going to do this for her! Thanks for the inspiration!”

Short and to the point, right? However, I was thinking beyond that statement, and it would have been too much information on her site. So, here’s my expansion of that comment.

I really do want to do this for my grand-daughter. I see owls everywhere, ever since she’s been saying the word owl, and wanting them. In fact, one of her first words to say was owl.

We’ve bought her several stuffed animal owls, in all sizes, and she loves them. She has picture books with owls in them, and at her 2nd birthday party, the theme and cake decorations were of owls. I think she’d like having some photos of them, too.

Some owls things are so cute, but not appropriate for a 2 year old to play with, such as glass figurines, very small ones, or any with sharp edges. This way she can have a picture collection of owls to look at.

I get so many crafty ideas to do with this, too. It could just be a photo album, or maybe a scrapbook kind of thing, with stickers and drawings. I could also write about where I found them, or even make up a cute story about an owl. There are so many possibilities. I’m going to have fun doing this for her.

It may take me awhile to gather enough photos to do this, but when I do finish, I’ll post some pictures on here, so you can see how it turned out.

What do you think? Is it a fun project to get started on? Maybe you’d like to try something similar…it could be anything you’d like…not just owls. If so, I wish you happy crafting! 🙂
