Rock Party 2014 Coming up Soon!

Just wanted to add another note about our upcoming Rock Party for 2014. We are busy getting all fun stuff together for our Hillbillie Rock Painting Get Together! June 13 - 14, 2014. It is coming up fast! We do not have any idea how many rock painters we will have. Unfortunately, some rock painters from previous years cannot come but we would like to have an
idea for sure who might be coming!

We will probably have 2 projects to work on as well as any projects that someone might have, especially after 'picking rocks' on Friday at the Little Buffalo. We will try to gather enough rocks so that those who cannot go 'picking' might still have a few rocks to paint on!

Don't forget to bring pictures of your rocks or rocks you have to 'show off' to all. We love new ideas and inspiration!

The fee is still $10 each rock painter and for those who want to 'tag along' for the fun of it, only $5. We will have goodie bags for the painters. Hopefully, everyone will bring a finger food snack to share and maybe a bottle of water or two for all to nibble on while we paint! And, don't forget, T.Joe and son, son-in-law, or friend(s) will grill hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch on Saturday!

I'm hoping that our weather will cooperate and give us a nice sunny, but not too hot weekend to gather! We are planning to have an extension to the front of the shop in case we have an overflow of rock painters so no one will have to be 'out in the sun or weather' while we all paint!

We look forward to seeing all who are interested in painting rocks! See you soon!

Quilting

Well....I started out with the 2014 Rock Party but did not mention WHEN?  June 13 - 14, 2014 at Dees' Dream in Golden, Missouri.  The agenda is pretty much the same as years before.  Friday morning, we will meet Lin Wellford in Green Forest and follow her to Jasper to 'pick' rocks for an hour or two, depending on the weather, and then go to the Jasper Ozark Cafe for a light lunch and then back to Dees' Dream to start painting on our new found rocks!  We will paint, nibble on finger foods that everyone brings to share, and come back on Saturday to paint and visit and nibble again.  T.Joe, with help from son, son-in-law, or friends, grill dogs and burgers on the grill for lunch and we will visit and paint some more! 

If you will click on labels, you will find places to stay in Golden, Eagle Rock, Eureka Springs, Branson, etc.  Of course, I don't have all the options listed, but Google will have them. 

Be sure to bring pictures of your painted rocks, or if you still have the rocks, bring them to show.  We all enjoy new ideas and inspiration!  Lin Wellford will be bringing a new project for us all to participate in.

We are hoping for nice weather but we will do our best to have it comfortable in the 'studio'.  We have an extension to add to the front of the shop if we need more table space for new painters! 

Be sure to leave comments if you have them...I enjoy reading them.

Will be looking forward to another FUN rock painting year!  See you in June?

Rock Party 2014

 Here it is again....time to get ready for another Rock Party at Dees' Dream in Golden, Missouri.  This will be our 15th year to have our Dees' Dream Rock Painting Party!  Amazing that we had done this for 15 years!  We have had so many friends come thru the years and are making new friends each year.  We started out with only 12 rock painters (including Lin Wellford and me) and we have had as many as 40 + (counting kids) come and paint rocks with us.  We also have tag alongs who come just to be here to enjoy the fellowship!

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!

Rock Painting Party 2012

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! 
Wandra and T.Joe Dees

Rock party 2012

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
