A few weeks back Mrs. Cola posted about her wishing stones guest book and it motivated me to finally figure this project out. Okay, it's not like there was much to figure out but I needed to find which writing device was going to work on the rocks.

The paint markers worked perfectly, they didn't smear or drip, or get scuffed up by the rough texture of the rocks. Success! Knowing that I wanted to display them after the wedding, when I was at Hobby Lobby a awhile back I picked up a couple vases for 50% off. I wanted them to be sturdy and durable, so I chose to go with the thicker, square glass ones:
