If you stopped by the yard sale you saw my address rock.
The rock came with the house, but as a stepping stone. I wanted our house address etched into it and called around. The quotes I got started at $150.oo.
I wanted it done so I tried using "Cricket" vinyl numbers. (Big laugh here :) With my house facing south, the were off in an hour.
So I used the "Cricket" vinyl number stencils (the left-overs from removing the numbers). I traced the numbers on my rock and painted them using craft paint that I already had.
I finished my project by spraying a protective coat over it. I used the inexpensive KRYLON Crystal Clear Flat spray. (about $3.oo at Wal-mart). It is an indoor/outdoor paint.
I did this 2 summers ago. It has held up - wonderfully. I do re-spray it several times a year.
I am a stay at home wife to a "go to work for my family" man. He likes his job. I love my life. We had 6 children in 8 years. We added 1 thru love and 3(so far) thru marriage. We have (so far) 2 dearly loved grandsons and 1 granddaughter. I am 53. I thought that was young until I saw some pictures.
Perhaps the best theme for my blog writings is a thought from President Gordon B. Hinckley. "Women for the most part, see their greatest fulfilment, their greatest happinessin home and family."
THIS IS ME!
