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!
