As Little Things Grow

My uber amazing friend, Cortney, and her husband, Josh, started their own company two years ago.  They make wood signs.  Originally, they started with pallet signs and the measuring stick growth chart, but moved away from pallets to lumber.  Their signs are AMAZING.  She hand paints them all.  I thoroughly impressed with everything she does.

A while ago, she posted this pretty neat baseball sign.
 


Our family does not play baseball…but, we have cheerleaders.  I asked her if she could switch it up a little to fit our life.  And…of course she did.  And it is amazing!  The colors we decided to use are their school colors.  I am so happy with how it turned out!  Now it sits outside our front door and I smile every time I pull up to the house.

 

She has made me countless things over the last two years.  I also got a measuring stick/growth chart, which I love.  The girls measured themselves one day, while I was at work.  I wouldn’t have cared, except they wrote random mesgs, ‘I love mom’.  At first I was upset b/c that isn’t what it was for – they were only supposed to mark their height & the date.  The more I thought about it, the more I smiled.  In 10 years, when Cadence is off in college (she better be!) and Bryleigh is in full teenage mode, looking at the ruler and those little notes will probably make me tear up with memories. 

 


I ordered a sign, with clothespins attached, for my mom to hang pics of her grandkids, for Christmas one year.  I also had one made for my cousin & his wife for their wedding. 



She has donated twice to the apraxia walk. 

 
I had three made for the girls.  Each one special b/c it was what reminds me of them.



 
Two of my favorites were signs I ordered for Quinceañeras we went to.  I sent Cort pictures of the invitations and she was able to create these beautiful memory signs for the girls.

 


I wish I had an ounce of her creativity! 
 

She also made this very touching sign for my mom when Greg passed away.  My mom cried when I gave it to her.



If you are EVER looking for a unique gift, check out As Little Things Grow, b/c I’m fairly certain she can ship if you are not local. But trust me, you will NOT be disappointed!
