Painted Journals


Wood Signs

My journals are a way for you to express your inner most thoughts... the best way to represent them is by creating a one of a kind cover. The idea is that the outside of the journal is a representation of the inside- beautiful thoughts expressed through words and written down on paper. The outside is customized to represent something special in your life through the use of words, art, and anything else you love.

Scrolls are a treasure that can be hung and cherished in your home for many years to come. These pieces of art offer the vintage feel that everyone knows and loves. They are customized to relay your favorite word or phrase, and bring it to life in the form of art. They can also be customized with greenery and/or florals. Finished with a twine bow, these scrolls are perfect for a gift, or just to hang and enjoy in your own home!

These signs can be created to have a frame or no frame. They are a perfect piece to add to your home. These pieces are fully customizable, from the frame color to the words written. They are made 100% from wood and are completely handmade by Simple Sayings. These signs can have greenery, florals, or other graphics. Just tell me your favorite things and I will make your art dream come to life!
