Remember the Pet Rock--someone made millions of dollars selling lonely people a rock with instructions for care.
Playing around on the computer this evening, I crafted a new character.
Meet Mr. Smiley Rock.
He tough as a rock, handsome with his lovely hair, and dashing with a smile that's ear to ear.
I started with a picture of a rock that I noticed when hiking.
The rock had leaves at the top that made it look like hair to me (I know crazy, huh).
I thought to myself take the photo and then when I am back, I can just add a smiley face and voila--it'll come alive.
I found this cute smiley face balloon online and created this mashup.
I showed it to my wife who gave it her expert blessing.
Now, I share it for your enjoyment and critique.
Hey, what are weekends for if not a little fun and creativity?
