Do you want to hear about something really amazing?
Ok, you already know I how much I love our town, right? So far, I’ve written several stories about how nice the people here are.
Kindness Noticed is about the time my son was crying while we were standing on a corner at a closed business in town and someone opened a door.
When Those Hats Came Full Circle is about walking into a store in town and realizing we are right where we’re meant to be.
In Welcome Wherever We Are, I tell about a local store owner that lights up this world with her smile.
Oh, and in Stumbled, it was because a local business extended my bill when our money was short, that I included that as a gift of Fate.
There’s something new I want to tell you about that you’re going to love!
Recently, a gal saw Community Art project in another town, so she started it in our town.
The premise is simple. Decorate rocks and them hide them around town for others to find. It’s sort of like a giant Easter egg hunt, but with art! How awesome is that?
We met friends at a park on Tuesday and hid some. Later, on the project’s Facebook page, someone posted a picture of our rocks that had been found!
Local businesses are even joining in and giving prizes if their rocks are found and brought in to their business.
I absolutely love this idea, especially since the town pool closed several years ago and the new one isn’t built yet. This gives everyone something fun to do on a summer’s day.
Also, it’s open to everybody, any age, and any artistic ability. Once a rock is found, it can either be kept, or hidden again. Isn’t that neat?
See the ones in the pictures? We made those and we’re going to hide them today.
Aren’t they are cute? We decoupaged the small ones, then painted the dots. I drew the snail and skateboard onto the other rocks then painted them. We’re pretty excited for someone to find them!
This is just another reason why we love it here. How fun to live in a place where even the rocks rock!
