I didn't want to stuff the entry post with all my in-progress shots so I'm going to post them here:

(We got to observe a person finding it moments after it was hid!  Shocked)


Under a bull made out of corks (!) at Stew Leonards (a food store).


We went to one of our favorite parks to hide some of the rocks, and we were blessed to see a crane!!!!! Shocked

A VERY VERY VERY special THANK YOU to blupaisan for helping me to post these photos, and for teaching me all about positivity! Kiss Cheesy

Thank you for the compliments everyone!

One of the fantastic things that came out of doing this challenge is that when my older DD read the list of positive words and quotes I made, she liked it so much that she wanted a list for herself!

Im going to try and figure out a way to incorporate all of them into something and give it to her for Xmas.

What a wonderful way to spread positivity. I'm sure you have or will touch many people who happen to find one.
