Being Crafty...Hard Things Sign

I made this sign a few months ago and finally got around to hanging it up last week.  I hung it in my hall where I pass it a million times a day (or at least it seems to be that many times). 

I saw this saying on pinterest a while ago.  I found an old board laying around my house and painted it black.  Then I bought some vinyl lettering for the words. 


It's been a great reminder that I can do hard things. 

Whether that be changing my baby's clothes for the third time that day because of a leaky diaper. 

Or another "hard thing" might trying to keep my three year old from escaping his room during a time out. 

Or trying to get my energetic, athletic six year old to focus on his homework.

Or maybe it's dealing with the drama of an almost nine year old girl (I'm a little afraid of that drama that is yet to come when she gets older). 
Hopefully my kids will notice it and remember that they can do things even if they are hard too.

Sometimes I try to be crafty and make things.  Then sometimes I blog about them.  If I can make it, then you should be able to do it too.  Check out my "Crafty" page.

  1. Cute! And a good thing to remember! The repetitive actions of the day are usually the hardest for me too. Also, I like the idea of putting the lettering on an old painted board. I should look through Alex's scrap pile. Also I got a silhouette cutter for my birthday so if you ever want to use it to cut vinyl letters just let me know!

  2. That looks great! And simple, too -- I love it.

    I love the idea of surrounding myself and my family with positive thoughts like this. We just had a Relief Society conference and one of the classes, and one of the classes I was on was about overcoming obstacles -- and that was one of the strategies she used: displaying quotes around (and she had LOTS!). I am feeling inspired to gather some quotes and print them out (Photoshop is my thing, so that's probably what I'll do ... but this doesn't look too complicated, either!)
