The Latest Signs {I've Been Busy}

My Etsy shop was really busy over the month of December, and it was so much fun creating these signs! I thought I'd show you a few today. Most of these were custom orders that I made out of barn doors, old wood, old cabinet doors...pretty much anything I can find that I think looks interesting.

My most requested sign by far is the Zephaniah sign made out of old barn doors. I'm not currently taking new orders for this sign because it's been difficult keeping enough doors on hand. But I'm occasionally listing them in my shop when I get them made.

I loved working with these old barn doors. They are each so unique and the old rustic hinges add a lot of character.

Here is another sign I made out of a piece of fence I found in a barn. It's currently for sale in my shop. I love this quote by Robert Frost and finally found a way to use it! (If you are local, this sign is hanging at New Holland Coffee Co. and can be bought there.)

I made this sign for my brother & sister-in-law for Christmas. It's made from the lid to a grain storage bin for a barn (I think).

This old door (below) just makes me want to swoon! The wood was chunky and old and just plain perfect.

So there's a little recap of what I've been up to! I love that I get to use my creativity in my "job" ~ it's so fulfilling for me.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Beautiful!!Love all the yummy wood!!=)I want to make some signs one day for myself-I just keep putting it off.You do beautiful work!

  2. You do such beautiful work, and your signs are so creative and different! I went to Messiah college, so not too far from your area. A lot of your signs have names on them that are familiar too me. :)

  3. As always, I love your signs!Swooning over the one with "Lead Me" on it!

  4. I LOVE the Psalms 91:4 sign. I couldn't help saying "ohhh, I want that one" out loud. You have done a REALLY beautiful job on all of them.

  5. needed a saying for my chalkboard and came to your site for inspiration. i wasn't dissapointed. i went with Robert Frosts poet line. love it!!!Thank you!!! Rachel Stoltzfus

  6. oops, *poetic* line ~Rachel

  7. Do you sell the signs you make?

    1. Yes, you can find my signs in my website

  8. Your signs are very creative and beautiful! One note from an English teacher, however, is that family names alone should not use apostrophe "s" (i.e. Smiths, not Smith's) because an apostrophe indicates possession, but the name indicates the group of people named Smith, which is plural. A sign, however, for "Smith's House" would keep the apostrophe. Just thought you'd want to get it right!

  9. How do you paint on them? Stencil, freehand? And if stencils, what type of stencils. I love your ideas, want to paint on my electrical panel cover. Help please..Thank you


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments! ~Aimee
