our over the door collection started with a simple, yet powerful sign. over the last six years we have added many more designs to our collection. because these signs are powerful. and because they remind us about what's important. they encourage us to do and be our best selves. every day.
we started with we can do hard things.
because we can. even when we think we can’t. homework is hard. but we can do it. and sickness is hard. and relationships. they can be hard too. but we can do hard things. we are stronger than we think. and smarter than we know. and when we believe in ourselves, we can do impossible things. because we can. and so we do. we do hard things.
we added kindness matters.
because it does. and because it’s hard. it’s not easy to be kind. all the time. to be kind to people who might not be kind in return. so we hung up that sign. and we read it each day. it inspires us to be kind. we go out into the world. we go to school. and to work. and to the grocery store. and to the park. and to the library. and we try to be kind. to everyone. because the more kindness we pour out into the world, the more kindness comes back to us. kindess matters. it really does.
my friend ashley asked us to add be awesome today.
so we did. and we were so moved by those words, that we created a sign to hang above our own front door.
they are also perfect to hang in a classroom. our little over the door sign is the perfect size to rest on top of a classroom chalkboard. and the words are fabulous for students to read each day.
we want to see these words each day. we want to go to practice. and to our games. and to the playground. we want to be our best selves. we want to smile more. to be positive. to share. and to make good choices. so we read this sign as we leave our house each day. and we go out and make each day the best day. because we can.
over the years, we’ve added several other signs to our 'over the door' collection.
our be still and know sign has become a customer favorite!
and it sparked a wonderful introduction to another fabulous company.
our go into the world and do good sign was born from another customer favorite. and it now hangs in our studio. a gentle reminder to all those who enter our creative space to go out into the world and spread joy and happiness.
creativity take courage is also hanging in our studio. it inspires us to take risks. to be brave. to have faith in our ability. and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable.
choose your favorite(s) and hang them in your favorite space. we know that they will inspire and motivate you and your family. they will remind you to do your best. and to be your best. every day.
what inspiring message would you like to see hanging in your home every day? if it's not in our collection, let us know in the comments. we just might be inspired to add more positive signs to our collection.

I could get lost in this room all on my own. It’s so inviting and relaxing. Upon walking in you know you’re in for anything! I absolutely love it. Inspiration comes from your surroundings and this room will inspire.
What you said about the courage you need to be creative—just really resonates with me this week. After getting an art degree many years ago, I followed many other passions after I graduated. All these years later—I have been wanting to keep that part of me growing, but finding it very hard. I did a small fast doodle painting one day and posted it on social media—and the feedback was so encouraging! I have continued to do one per day and share it, which is helping me find my creative voice again and is building the courage I have been lacking to take risks. Also, in my Lent devotion I was challenged to be thankful for the words of praise people gave me and at the end of the day, offer them back to God as a beautiful bouquet. This has allowed me to be ok with hearing and receiving all the sweet comments I have heard about my doodles. I just love your quote and would love to make my own sign as a reminder!!! Thank you for sharing!
Where did you get that paintbrush in the paint room? I would love to get one for my kids playroom!
I think this room is timeless and kid friendly. I love the saying creativity takes courage. I was wondering where you purchased the large paint brush? It’s a great accent! Thanks :) and great job!!!
