#belove365 REBOOT


When I started the #belove365 project, I had no real concept of the crazy amount of time it would take.  Like seriously.  Every post required at least 6 hours of research and reading and writing and I JUST DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THAT.  Passion project or no.



I’ve been doing these as time-lapse videos for Patreon, but it’s now time to relaunch as a full project since I have people who want to do this thing!

SO.  Here’s what I’ve been doing.

I’ve been painting messages from the universe on SOMETHING.  I’ve painted a couple of rocks.  I’ve painted an apron that I donated to The Apron Project.

Once I’ve come up with a message (usually the thing *I* most need to hear right then), I drop it somewhere and let someone find it.  I love the idea of dropping it somewhere where I’ve gotten faith in humanity.  Or dropping it somewhere where I’ve lost faith in humanity.  Either one works.  I made a tag that says, “This is your message from the universe! Take it home.  It was meant just for you” that I tie to the item and then leave it.

I have faith that someone will find it who needs to hear that specific thing.

SO.  This week’s prompt is “you are magic.”

(Sorry for the crappy picture – I had to screen shot from a video since I had already given it away).

Ways to work with this prompt –

  • Use it in your art journal as a message to yourself.
  • Paint it on something (a rock, a canvas, a piece of driftwood) and leave it somewhere with a note telling the finder to take it home.
  • Print it on a pile of tiny cards and hand them out.
  • Make a sign for your yard (I may start doing this!  Maybe I’ll make a giant chalkboard and start leaving messages.  I live on a highway, so lots of cars go by!)

Either way, I’d love to see your LOVE IN ACTION.  Post below or in our Facebook group!

I’m excited about the prospects of this project.  And I hope you are too!

Share the love


  1. Oh you are so wonderful! This is so inspiring – I am gonna work on cleaning up my art room mess so I can actually work. I carried rocks around for years that I had painted the word “love” on at day camp in the late 60s. I either have lost them or my ex kept them which is okay. I’mma gonna make some more!

  2. What a cool idea! I’ve seen a lot of rock painting and hiding lately and I love the thought of this. I really dig your idea of adding some love to it. I think I should paint some rocks and leave them places too.

Talk to me!
