2015 Rock Painting Party

Hello from Golden Missouri, where we will be joined next weekend for another Rock Painter's Get Together at Dees' Dream!  How exciting to have our 16th year of Getting Together with Rock Painting Friends and Family!

T.Joe and I are busy trying to get Dees' Dream ready....cutting grass, trimming weeds, cleaning the 'shop'/studio to make room for tables and chairs for Rock Painting, and sharing information to all we come in contact with about our 16th Annual Rock Party!

For those who can come, you can bring your paints and brushes, and painted rocks to show and tell, and/or photos of your painted rocks. But, we will have plenty of brushes and paints for you to use if that is a problem bringing yours. 

We want to make a special photo of all our rock painters and supporters to send to DecoArt as a thank you for DecoArt furnishing special Patio Paint for us to use this year.

If you are coming and have problems finding us, please call us at 417-230-4880 or 479-426-0679 or 417-271-4281.  Our physical address is 22325 W Mockingbird Drive, Golden, Missouri 65658 and our little community is Emerald Beach.

Please check all labels to find more information about the agenda.  We will do pretty much the same as years before. 

Rockin' on!  Hope to see you soon!

2015 Rock Painting Party Golden Missouri at Dees' Dream, Table Rock Lake

It's been almost a year since I posted on this blog and now it is time to prepare for another fun Rock Party Get Together. Our dates will be June 12 - 13, 2015 with the same agenda as our previous 15 years! Yes, this will be the 16th year - Sweet 16! Our theme this year will be Rock a Bye Baby!.

When we go Rock Picking on Friday morning, we will be in search of the perfect rocks to paint our 'babies'! For those who cannot go rock picking, we will try to find as many perfect baby rocks so everyone will have a chance to make their baby rocks!

For our agenda for our two day get together, please refer to labels listed as we will follow the same agenda as previous years. There is a generalized map to give you an idea of how to get to Dees' Dream and our mailing address is 22325 W Mockingbird Drive, Golden, Missouri for those who want to follow GPS. We are in Emerald Beach if that helps.

I hope to post more information as we prepare for the Get Together. You can also see posts on Facebook, too.

Rocking On! Hope to see you there!

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!

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!
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!
