Printable Pick-me-ups




How about something new? I’ve been toying with the idea of having some printable small prints in the shop, and I’m excited to start a new little collection.

I’m a MANTRA kinda girl. I’ll get a phrase, motto, quote or lyric in my head, and use it to give me that pick me up when I need it.

This poster was inspired this week by a friend who was going through an unbearable hardship, and in some cases, she was treated a bit unfairly and she just wanted to shout out and let everyone know how challenging her life was in that moment. And I was reminded once again, that if we were all to treat each other like they were going through an unbearable hardship of some kind, we’d all treat each other with a little more understanding, patience and kindness. And maybe even offer more help, even when it isn’t asked for.

And this thought came to my mind: “Treat everyone you meet like they are climbing mountains, because they probably are.”

This is a 5×7 print and it’s just the right size to hang by your desk, or right in the kitchen.

I’m going to be making more of these…easy little illustrated words of wisdom. Have any you’d like to see me make? It could be really fun to hear your ideas;)

    I love this and can’t wait to see more!

    Love this idea! I read a great marriage devotional about not complaining/criticizing and how we should mimic our creator God. “Create solutions instead of complaining about problems…Anybody can criticize. Anbody can cut something down. The courage lies with the creator.”

    I think “The courage lies with the creator” is an incredible mantra that applies to so many areas of life!

    Wonderful idea! Two of my favorites are…

    “Today I shall behave as though this is one by which I shall be remembered.” — R.A. Twerski

    “Remember this, that very little is needed to make a happy life.” — Marcus Aurelius

    Do small things with great love. Another, God provides us great opportunities disguised as impossible situations. I just love your print!

    This is great! To be honest, these inspirational items are my favorite part of your art. I always have little quotes, reminders, love notes tucked throughout the house. Perhaps it’s a July-girl thing?

    A quick question for you or others…. Our printer broke down (may not be a bad thing! Ha!) and I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for a printer that could print these pieces out nicely even perhaps on a heavier paper? Thanks!!!
    Ten of my favorite inspirations:
    1. The serenity prayer. I have this one tucked everywhere!
    2. Sitting Bull: Let us put our minds together and see what kind of life we can make for our children.
    3. William Wordsworth: Fill the paper with the breathings of your heart.
    4. Louisa May Alcott: Love is a great beautifier.
    5. Louisa May Alcott: I’m not afraid of storms for I’m learning to sail my ship.
    6. Louisa May Alcott: Help one another is part of the religion of our sisterhood.
    7. Arthur Miller: A lot of good things have come out of dreaming.
    8. Ernestine Schumann-Heink: Where even the teakettle sings from happiness. That is home!
    9. Sir Winston Churchill: Continuous effort -not strength or intelligence- is the key to unlocking our potential.
    10. Walt Disney: That’s the real trouble with the world. They forget. They don’t remember what it’s like to be twelve years old.
