Quality Stone Engraving

Stone Engraving
We were recently featured in our local newspaper! The City of Estacada, located on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon is building a new park. We have done several stone engraving projects in the town before and were excited for the opportunity to create a beautiful stone sign for the entrance to the park. Jeff Spiegel of the Estacada News met with us for about an hour and wrote a wonderful article about us, and our company. He highlighted the stone engraving we did on the stone sign for the park and also on the engraving we did on the Estacada Veterans Memorial. He also wrote about our other engraved stone products like our Memorial Stones, and Pet Memorial Stones. The City has some other big improvements and developments coming up in the future and we very much look forward to working with the city on their other needs for stone signs and stone engraving in the future.

Create custom Memorial Stones

I recently met a customer that had a very touching story about loss, healing, and helping others. She told me a story about how several years ago she lost her 22 year old son. I immediately thought of my mother, and just how devastated I know she would be if something ever happened to me or either of my sisters. I felt great empathy for this strong woman who told me that each day was difficult for her still. She further explained that the reason that she was calling was because she wanted to order memorial stones for a friend of hers who's husband had recently passed away. What I found really amazing was what she told me next. One year to the date, on the anniversary of her sons passing she woke up to a simple engraved memorial stone with her sons name on it.  She was so very touched, and to this day she doesn't know who did that for her. I think it is amazing that in her own healing process, she is finding some comfort in being able to help others through theirs. Memorial stones can be simple or elaborate, but the comfort they bring from a touching gesture like this is always the same. Timeless.

Mark your herbs and veggies

Engraved stone vegetable/herb markers
Personalized garden stones are an excellent way to label your herbs and vegetables. Spring is right around the corner and people are already preparing for the garden season! Every year, we pull the weeds, till the soil, and plant our favorite veggies. If you are like me, I really like to label my plants. I've tried a bunch of different types of markers, but nothing has compared to these personalized garden stones from Stone Creations Northwest. I have nine of them from last years garden. I recently weeded and tilled up our raised beds and decided to take inventory of my gardening supplies. I hadn't seen the stone markers since last summer, and I was very happy to see that they looked brand new! That is the beauty of natural stone engraving. They are not only functional in labeling your herbs and veggies, but also a timeless and natural fit to add something unique to your garden. Personalized garden stones are your best choice for labeling your garden this year, and years to come!

Creating a Memorial Garden: Memorial Stones

Several days ago my grandmother passed away and left this world. Of course the loss of a loved one is difficult but I can't help but feel some relief for her. She had late stage Alzheimer's disease that had completely taken over. I know now that she is with my grandfather again and that she is no doubt playing the piano again. My grandmother was a beautiful pianist.

Both of my grandparents have been cremated and we are going to spread  her ashes off the oregon coast where my grandfather is. It got me thinking that we don't have anything to memorialize them. My plan is to find a nice place on my parents property and create a Memorial garden for them. I am going to create custom Memorial stones for each of them to build the garden around. I'm always saying Memorial stones are a great way to honor the lives of your loved ones, and I now have an opportunity to create something nice for them and my family. I am going to consult my family members first to decide what should be included on the Memorial stones and also what plants and flowers they might have liked. I am also thinking about planting a tree as the center of the garden.

I will update this post as things progress and post pictures of the memorial stones. I would love to get feedback from readers also if you have some general design ideas for a memorial garden.

Pet Memorial Stone to honor your pet companion

In 2004 we lost our dog Riley. My parents own a nice home on 10 acres in a rural community outside of the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area. It is a great place for dogs to run and be happy. Our dogs have always been allowed to run around the property as they please and like many animals, they kind of set up their own boundaries, never leaving our property. 2004 was a tough year for our family, we had to put down Riley's dad Duke because he was 14 years old and couldn't walk anymore. Riley left our property where for almost a week and when he returned he was exhausted and wouldn't eat. We took him to the vet to find out he had salmon poisoning. We lost Riley a week after we had Duke put down. It didn't seem fair to lose both of them. We buried them next to each other on the property and recently honored them with custom pet memorial stones. It has been several years now since they were lost but their memory lives one through those pet memorial stones that are placed on there graves. I know many people who have pet markers even if they haven't buried their pet on their property. The engraved stones still give memory to our faithful pet companions. If you have lost a pet or know someone who has, consider custom engraved pet memorial stones. I know that it will bring you comfort in honoring your faithful friend.

Memorial Stones and the grieving process

Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown

The loss of a loved one can be an extremely difficult time in ones life. The pain that we experience is both personal and unique to us. How one person grieves the loss of a loved one, can be very different in how another one grieves. There can be five stages of grief. A person may experience some of these stages or all of them at once. There is no specific order in which a person experiences these stages:

1. Denial
2. Anger
3. Bargaining
4. Depression
5. Acceptance

For more information on this process you can visit PubMed Health.

Grief is a process and it will take time. However, when you are ready, we are here to memorialize your loved one. Memorial stones from Stone Creations Northwest can give you the opportunity to have that special place in your home or landscape to visit your loved one.

Memorial Stones and Natural Burials

Custom Memorial Stones
Natural Memorial Stones are becoming very popular in the natural burial movement. Traditional burials are very costly and are not environmentally friendly. Cremation is very popular these days as it is less expensive that a burial and is considered more ecologically friendly. However, through the natural burial movement, burials are making a comeback. The Memorial Stones are natural stones and not made of polished quarried and cut granite like traditional headstones. Each engraved stone is unique and is acquired by more natural means. The casket is made of biodegradable materials and the burial plot follows a more natural landscape. Sometimes a tree is planted at the head of the burial plot. Often Memorial Stones are placed at the base of the tree. Each of our Memorial Stones are carefully created by deep stone engraving to ensure a quality tribute to your loved one.

Our Memorial Stones are the perfect choice and each engraved Memorial can be personalized with your special message. People will often make these engraved Memorial Stones a center piece to a memorial garden or place beneath a tree planted in their loved ones honor. Stone Engraving is a timeless and elegant way to pay tribute to your loved one, through our hand made and personal memorial stones.
