Show Me A Sign Designs

I have recently discovered something about myself.  I won't give you the long story because it is one of those this led to this and this led to this.  The short story is. . .I found out that I love to draw.  For 39 years I have only drawn stick figures, I have NEVER drawn anything and for the past two weeks I have been making 3-4 signs per day.  And now I have an etsy shop.  Someday I will go into the long story.  But, here are a few that I have made. 

This is my #1 viewed sign on etsy.

Olivia begged me to draw a beanie boos sign for her room.

For our sailing themed family room.

This also goes perfect in our sailing themed family room.

This has been one of my favorite sayings for many years.

This is one of my favorite signs. 

This was an Ooops.  I didn't like how it turned out, so I painted over it and had to use brown so that it would be covered up.  So then I had a brown canvas and came up with this.  I thought it turned out cute.

I have wanted a Playroom Rules sign for a long time. 

This bottom sign is my main goal.  Please read my poem on the right side bar that I wrote to Logan a few years ago called Playing In Heaven Instead.  Below is the picture that I made to go along with it.  I would like to personalize one for each parent who has lost a child who would like one.  Ideally I would like to make enough money from my other signs to provide one at no cost to each parent.  There is just something special about each personalized treasure received with your child's name on it to show that they were here and that they will be remembered.  So, I opened an etsy shop called Show Me A Sign Designs.

Take a look around and let me know what you think.  I am totally new at this.  It's honestly like I woke up one morning and it seemed like God wanted me to paint signs.  So, here I am.  LOL!  If you have a favorite saying, quote or verse, I would be happy to put it on a canvas for you.  I will do a wide variety of things and I am learning something new every day.  You can comment on here, go through etsy or just send me an email.

Anyway, I may be sharing a few more signs in the days and weeks to come.  Here are a few pictures from today, however.  We went to Ryan's company picnic at Tanganyika Wildlife Park. 

I thought this was a really cute picture of Ryan and the girls.

Olivia got new glasses yesterday and they are really cute.

And this. . .this!  The camel even smiled for the picture!!!  So Cute!!
