Positive Affirmation Sign

A few weeks ago I made a sign for a certain 4 year old who is beautiful inside and out, and while I normally would piece together my own words or sayings - at which I've been known to spend hours doing - I didn't have hours in December.

And as it turns out I didn't need hours after I saw this free printable perfect for a little girl of great worth who can do hard things and make good choices.

I had a couple thoughts about this sign...something major and something not so major.

The minor thing:  I wanted the sign to be big.  As in above your new bed in your new room in your new house big.

The major thing:  It needed to be a positive message that applied to every day, something I wanted her to take to heart and believe.

It's about 4 feet long by around 2 1/2 feet tall, and everything on it is to be believed for this child with amazing potential whom I love so very much.

It started out being cut in the garage and then framed to my size specifications with the total I was looking for, thanks to the man with the power tools.

I gave it a coat of Maison Blanche Wrought Iron black with a little Maison Blanche chocolate brushed on in spots so the letters would look a little worn and have some depth.

I needed some pink, but not as light as the Debutante pink and not as dark as the Cerise red, so I mixed both of those with some white to give me a vibrant light fuchsia color.

I wanted the pink only in certain spots so I painted it over the black, but under the letters and gave the whole thing a couple coats of white.

Then I set it aside to dry and worked on the other projects that occupied my table through the month of December.

Eventually the letters were peeled, I gave it a very light sanding so as not to distress it too much, and the lettered part was waxed with a coat of Maison Blanche wax in clear.

For the frame I distressed it just a bit and gave it a coat of Maison Blanche dark wax so that there would be a contrast.

And in the end it was wrapped and placed by the tree for that certain little 4 year old, to hang in her new house above her new bed in her new room.

I signed the back of it with the date and wrote to her that I always want her to believe these words.

Because they are true.


I positively affirm I am linking this sign up at these parties:

  24. This is so beautiful. Will you make me one that says, "Close your mouth. Stop eating. Put away the Evil Chips and Diet Coke. No, brownies are not breakfast food. Neither is pizza."

    Yeah, I think that should just about do it.
