Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Smile Please

We have been out and about again and found another decorated rock, which I just had to share with you.

It certainly put a smile on our faces.  These decorated rooks seem to be popping up all over the place and they seem to be loved by all.  Not far from us they recently held a 'B line', where people came from far and wide to add their rocks, painted with bugs of all shapes and sizes, to a long, long line.  The stones are left there for anyone to pick up and either keep or to take away to 'hide' somewhere else.

On the reverse of this stone were instructions to post a photograph of our find on the Facebook page for 'Love on the rocks UK (Hiding Rocks ~ Making Smiles)'.

There was also a note that it had been painted by the lovely Maggie on 2 April 2022 - thank you Maggie.  We shall be re-hiding the rock in a day or two



  1. I think it's a great idea and love the smile rock you found

    1. One of these days I am going to pluck up the courage to paint some rocks myself. I have bought all I need and just need a few smooth rocks and some artistic talent - even my handriting is awful!
