Love Rocks

There is love being spread around our community and I think it is pretty awesome.


Last October a horrible thing happened in our hometown. One evening two little girls were playing in the leaves on the side of a street that doesn't get very much traffic. It seems they may have been hiding under the leaves and unknowingly a teenage girl ran them over.

They were killed. One of the worse tragedy's I can even imagine.

The next evening the whole town gathered to mourn their death. It hit us all hard.


The parents of these girls are so amazing. It seems it is a tradition in their family to make "Love Rocks". They are rocks with little fabric hearts mod podged onto them. The Mother of these girls set up a Facebook community and people all over our town have been making Love Rocks and leaving them around for people to find and feel the love...in honor of the girls.

You can find the Facebook page here...https://www.facebook.com/lovedrenched

It is the goal to have this tradition go worldwide.

I made my first Love Rocks the other day.


Most people don't paint their Love Rocks--but you know me, I paint everything!

You never know where you may find one...








I thought it was so cute when a friends daughter, Sophia, found her first Love Rock at Fred Meyers.


I think that Abby and Anna are smiling down from heaven with all the love being spread in their memory!

I hope this inspires some of you to spread some Love Rocks too :)


Thanks for visiting!

This is a wonderful idea, Sandy. I hope people who really need a lift will find them and feel the love. It is so good of you to take the time to make these pretty little rocks.

such a positive act born from such a tragedy:) (i'd paint mine, too!) cute idea, sandy!

Those are very cute! I'm curious though...when you find a rock, are you supposed to just look at it & enjoy it or do you get to take it home & keep it for yourself? I've always wanted to do something like that but with smiley faces!

I just looked up the story you mentioned. What a horrible freak accident. I can't even imagine how that family feels. The teenager that hit them now has to live with that forever too. It makes you realize just how fragile life is. Everything can change in an instant.

I hope your summer is going wonderful Sandy!
