The gift for someone who has it all...

Thursday, December 30, 2010

We really struggle with what to get some members of our family -
We are all really so far beyond blessed with stuff...it's hard to know what 'stuff' to give each other during the holidays...

One of those people we have a hard time buying for is my Mother in Law -
the kids' Grandma Betty...

But...even in the dead of winter - with summer on our brains, we came up with an idea...





A create your own garden stone!

We thought this could be a nice gift for her home or her lake camper - whichever she sees fit...

And the kids had a great time designing and putting the letters in -
'We love you Grandma Betty'

It turned out so adorable I was tempted to cement over the Grandma Betty part and keep it for my own garden!

But...we knew that Grandma Betty would also love and treasure it - So we gifted it to her -

Thankfully the kids got their own garden stone kits for Christmas so we can get busy on stones for our own yard!
YAY!
I'm not sure who is more excited - me or them!
If you haven't done this before - it really is a pretty quick and easy project - and if you are having trouble figuring out what to get someone -this might just be the answer!

We made them a few years ago, and will again next year I think. I love having them for our garden.

I LOVE these. Mallory and I make one every year for daddy on father's day. I think I love it more than he does, but who cares. I love looking at them so I agree that you should get some for your own yard!
