Absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this project idea! I've got tons of stones laying around. Used to paint positive messages on stones with my young niece and nephews and then we'd go out and leave them in random spots around the neighborhood for people to find. Now I have a use for all the leftover stones. Happy
