When I first saw the hand-lettered wooden scripture signs sold by Leslee Matthews (Signs of Abundant Life on Instagram and Etsy), I knew I had to have one. Leslee produces these beautiful signs with her own hands. That includes hand-cutting the wood; staining, sanding, and painting it; meticulously hand-lettering it, and finally, rubbing it with a finishing wax.
As Leslee says, “I am intimately involved every step of the way and it is a huge investment of love!”
I immediately identified with that sentiment and knew that these signs would fit right into in my Remarkable Women Store. I had long been on the hunt for an inspiring, positive, and meaningful piece that women could give to one another; Leslee’s creations checked each of those boxes!
I connected with Leslee and the Remarkable Women Wall Art Collection was born. We came up with four pieces designed to be displayed either as a set or individually. With remarkable women in mind, we created something that inspires each day by reminding us who we are and what is most important in life.
I wanted this collection to be something you could buy for yourself or as a special gift for the women in your life—friends, mothers, daughters, sisters, colleagues, mentors, and so on.
The Strength and Dignity Large Wood Sign features one of my favorite quotes in gold lettering: “She is Clothed with Dignity and Laughs Without Fear of the Future.” I think this is a great reminder for us all to keep this attitude in life— eager and optimistic for the future, strong and courageous inside.
The three smaller signs, which are each 3.5 by four inches, feature the words “Be Grateful,” “Be Remarkable,” and “Be a Dreamer,” respectively. My favorite, as you could probably guess, is the Be Remarkable Small Wood Sign. We are all remarkable, and yet we often need to be reminded to live into that reality intentionally—especially on days when life feels either mundane or overwhelming.
No matter which one you pick, these messages make unique gifts for friends or colleagues; give them for birthdays, a new home or new job, or just as a thoughtful surprise. My wall art collection is also a wonderful way to treat yourself. Hang one of the small signs in the bathroom to help you greet the day, or cluster a few of them on your desk at work.
Better yet, buy the whole collection and hang it over your bed for some much needed self-assurance both day and night.
I’m so grateful to Leslee for making the Remarkable Women wall art collection possible. We hope that these pieces bring you and your loved ones the inspiration and joy that they have brought us!
