New Creative Outlet

So even though I’ve hinted that I opened up an Etsy shop, I have never really just come out and said it!

I am excited to officially say that I finally mustered up enough courage to jump out of my comfort zone and start selling some of my work.

I have always loved to do anything crafty, from sewing to decoupaging!  So this whole sign painting thing just started as a “lets see if I can do this” kind of thing, and now has progressed into a full blown love with each piece of battered wood.

I keep seeing signs that have a perfectly painted background or a cute chevron print behind a saying, and I think that I should look for wood a little more perfect.  But the beauty of this new love is that each piece of wood is hammered and roughed up, and its really the words that make the wood come to life again.  Its interesting how much the process of redeeming old wood fulfills my creative cup, and how the words I am imprinting on it give it so much value.

I am excited to see where this dream goes, and if it only goes as far as decorating my own wall with these pieces I will truly be just as happy!  So many of the pieces I am hesitant to even list because I know the perfect spot in my home that I want to hang them!

Check it out here, thelovelymosaic, my new creative outlet!!
