Join us again in Golden Missouri Friday to follow Lin Wellford to Jasper to 'pick rocks' and then to enjoy a delicious lunch at the Jasper Cafe on the square and then back to Dees' Dream to paint rocks and visit and nibble on finger foods Hawaiian style! We ask everyone to bring something to share while we visit and paint!
Saturday, we will paint and visit and enjoy burgers and dogs grilled by Thomas Joseph Dees and John Dees.
Please click on labels on this blog to see the agenda, which will be similar to years past. Call us if you have questions! Rockin' On!
It's almost Rock Pickin' AND Rock Painting Together Time!
The dates are June 8th and 9th....Friday and Saturday,, 2012, Dees' Dream, Golden Missouri. We are working day and night trying to get everything ready! T.Joe has worked for almost a week designing and constructing a nice 'New York Boardwalk to walk between the 'Studio' and the house. I will post a picture as soon as I get this note written.
It is WONDERFUL that I am retired as well as T.Joe this year....and am having fun getting all the goodies together! We are expecting lots of new rock painters this year...plus those who have been here many times! We are sad to say some of those who have been with us for several years will not attend this year.
This year's theme is 'Creativity Rocks....Pass It On!" So, we are striving to do just that....Pass It On! Hoping to see you soon! Rockin' On!
Just wanted to update on the 2012 Rock party news. Nothing new other than we did get some new Patio Paints today along with more new brushes. Still working on 2012 patches to go in the goodie bags and more goodies to share. We keep handing out more Rock Party cards to share with anyone to help remind them of the upcoming dates and the invite to join us. We are looking forward to visiting with friends returning and new friends who will join us for their first time painting rocks.
Rockin' On! Hope to see you soon! Wandra and T.Joe
This nice rental house is very roomy for anyone who would like to stay in Golden for the weekend Rock Party 2012. This belongs to one of our local rock painters and her husband who built our decks and shop (studio) When I talked to her a week or so ago, they did not have anyone signed up for the month of June. This is about 1 1/2 to 2 miles from Dees' Dream!
I also wanted to post the map again just so someone would not have to search for it. Just a reminder...the 2012 Rock party is June 8th and 9th. Please look in a post below for the details. Hope to see you soon! Rpckin' On!
Well...figured it would be easier if I just went ahead and posted all the information instead of you having to find it. If you have questions, please let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We hope you can come this year! We have LOADS of fun!

When preparing to attend a Rock Party at DeesDream-

We will have lunch provided for Saturday lunch. 5) If you have painted rocks, bring them to show and tell.

We will have signs up in the Eagle Rock/Golden area....sometimes even as far as Seligman, Missouri. 8) There are maps on the 2006 Rock Party Web site.
Rock Pickin' Tips (for when we go on Friday morning of the Rock Party)
1) Wear comfortable Shoes for walking on rocks. 2) Bring water, energy snacks, etc. to stay well hydrated. (It could be hot) 3) Bring a small bucket or basket to tote your rocks. 4) Bring a chair so you can take a break if needed. 5) We will only spend about 1 1/2 to 2 hours pickin' rocks. 6) Bring a camera if you want to get some pictures of the awesome landscape.
I realize that June 8 and 9, 2012 is getting closer and closer and I have not posted an update about the 2012 Rock party! The agenda will be the same as previous years....but just wanted to let you know what the dates are. We will still be following Lin Wellford to Jasper to her favorite Rock pickin' place and stopping for lunch at the Ozark Cafe in downtown Jasper before heading back to Dees' Dream to paint rocks and fellowship! Then, Saturday is a full day of snackin', paintin', and fellowshipin'! To find more information and details, please search for previous posts. There will be details on the agenda and possible places to stay as well. Hope to see you soon! rockin' on! Wandra Ann
I do not like to be idle and love to create. I grew up sewing doll clothes and making my own clothes, beginning at an early age of around 5 years old. I have made countless outfits for my daughters, my sisters, my brother, my husband, my mom and dad and friends. I embroider anything that will fit in my hoops and quilt t-shirt quilts, embroidery quilts, silk tie quilts, velvet pieced quilts, photo quilts, etc. I will paint on anything that does not run away and I love to sing harmony. I play the piano and organ, when I make the time to sit down. I own at least 10 sewing machines as well as embroidery machines and a quilting machine. I love to hand smock baby bonnets and embroider baby bibs for gifts. I also love to make throw pillows for gifts for my friends. My husband and I live on Table Rock Lake and I love to take time out of being creative and go fishing and try to catch "Walter" and then go home and cook the fish and feast on yummy food! I also work at a full time job to have a steady income to support all my habits! My husband is retired...and supports all my habits!
