Today, I’d like to share with you a Family Mission Statement Sign I recently painted.
But first… I’m going to get a little heavy! If you know me in real life, then you know my grandpa was an incredibly important person to my family. He wasn’t a rich man, not wealthy at all… But he truly was the greatest man I’ve ever known. The legacy he left me was the fingerprint he made on my life.
As life passes by I watch my children grow, and see my grand babies born and I wonder about my fingerprint on their lives. What’s the ripple effect of my existence?? Have I given them a strong foundation rooted in the family values my grandparents gave to me? I mean, we say our grace and our bedtime prayers, but what guides them in their daily decision making?
Working in retail a couple decades ago (I seriously cannot believe how old I’ve gotten) I learned for a company, the importance of having a Mission, Vision and Values Statement. It helps the employees stay unified, and gives them a road map for self efficiency.
But what about for a family? This question has been weighing heavily on my mind the past 4 years, or so. I’ve been meaning to gather my tribe together and develop a Family Mission Statement **sigh** but life gets in the way!
Family Mission Statement Sign
And then I got an order… for none other than a FAMILY VALUES and MISSION STATEMENT SIGN!!
First came the list of Family Values, with the Mission Statement at the end. It looked something like this in my Etsy app:
I immediately fell in love with the idea, and my mind started spinning with design possibilities!! This was really an exciting and challenging project for me. Challenging, because I saw the layout as two specifically different areas, that clearly needed to be unified… Oh yeah, and the space issue!
But with anything, I think my best work comes from my biggest challenges. It took several late nights, but I am so proud of the final result!!
Remember my little Furniture Painting Partner?? Isn’t he just the most handsome mini model you’ve ever laid your eyes upon?
I was thrilled that my client absolutely loved her sign!! She left me the sweetest review, which I appreciated so much!! <3
Absolutely talented individual! We had a custom board made with our family values and mission statement, seriously it was all just text with a meaning but no life to it. She did that for us! So in love with the piece that will be hanging in our home forever! Thank you so much!! Simply beautiful and so so talented!!
One more view… I actually was sad to package this one up and ship it out!
This Family Mission Statement Sign is 18″ x 30″ The background was painted in my Weathered Beach technique, and then distressed to perfection!
