Words of Inspiration

Inspiration for thought.
My friend Michelle Homme has a wonderful book, blog and facebook page.  She is a Women's Group Leader and Motivational Speaker.  She is a Giver and a Doer.  She is an inspiration to me!

I put her words (quotes) on tiles, wood and metal.  She sells these items, along with bracelets, necklaces, magnets and her books.  She has an ETSY page as well.

Why am I telling you this?  Well, because I mentioned that she is an inspiration to me.  Her current project (if you will) is collecting clothing, pajamas and scrapbook supplies for a homeless women's shelter.  These ladies need business clothes for the job they are required to have in order to live there.  They now have a revolving closet of clothes, shoes and accessories thanks to Michelle.  She wants to give these ladies a pajama party for fun!  All moms know that when a baby is born, all the gifts are for the baby - Michelle wanted to give the moms a nice pair of pjs.

Here are some of the recent signs I designed for Michelle:
These marble tiles are 3" x 8" and I put two of her quotes on them in black vinyl.  I used my Cameo and fonts from my computer to design them. 
This is a black metal 8" x 8" sign.  I copied and traced her quote from Pinterest and cut it out on my Cameo in light blue vinyl.
This is another black metal 8" x 8" sign.  I used a font from my computer and lime green vinyl for this one.
These wood signs are 3" x 9".  I painted two of them black and two of them brown.  I cut out the quotes in vinyl and placed them on the wood.  I painted over the vinyl. 
 Once the paint was dry, I peeled off the vinyl letters so the black (and brown) showed through.  I sanded, inked the edges and sealed them.
If the words on these signs have inspired you at all, consider checking out Michelle's Pinterest page for more!

Beautiful job on these, Lori. I envy your abilities with vinyl. I did faces on pumpkins with vinyl last year. I wonder if I have time to do it again. You seem to be able to do a zillion things. Are you sure there's only one of you?
