I love that my Etsy business allows me to “meet” some amazing people and talk to them about their stories. Every now and then I am touched beyond words by the meaning behind their commissions.
This customer’s father passed away this year, and this list was read at his funeral. She asked me to turn them into signs for her family for Christmas.
I won’t lie- signs are not easy. They take about 2 hours each from start to finish in many different sessions. You can’t mess up. If you do, it is really hard to fix your mistake.
As I sat rewriting these words over and over, I felt like I was becoming a better person by absorbing the messages. I wish I had known her father.
