In loving memory signs..Sign made for loved ones who have departed on and the words that stay with us forever

I have recently been asked to do some new signs, these signs where for a woman who lost a dear friend to cancer, before the woman passed she left here loved ones a letter and this letter is what I painted onto here sign it says,

 " Always be good, kind and generous. And those qualities must be seamless. Pray and decide what you feel is right and true so that, when faced with adversity, you remain true to yourself and to what is right. It is easy to waver and to move toward selfishness when life gets hard. That is a test of faith, and love will always help you to find your way." ~Carrie in her letter to Matteo and Francesca

This sign was not the biggest or most elaborate

 sign I have painted but it has been so far one of the most meaningful. I painted these words on 6 signs,and after painting them I had memorized each line. When I had first read the letter I thought it was beautiful but after hours of being with it and painting it I realized how much truth that was in this last letter. I will forever remember and keep these words and even though this woman has passed on, her words will be in me and others who read this sign forever. 

This is one of the reasons I so enjoy what I do, words and thoughts are so IMPORTANT to me, I believe they are what shape and mold us and they make us who where are. We center our lives around words and thoughts  and people who are dear to us live on forever in our upholding of there thoughts and beliefs. 

I think it is absolutely incredible that words that where spoken thousands of years before still hold value and influence us in our lives today, it is part of our eternity here words and thoughts that NEVER die. 

I wanted to share with you all how much it meant to me and I wanted to encourage you all to keep close the words that inspire and influence you. Everything has a power and a force to it and words can make a life or break that is amazing! Choose your words, choose your thoughts and stay amazing!!

~Love ya'll, Shana

Back to business...where I have been??

Ok I started this blog almost a year ago and with high hopes to be one of the best in blogging. I do believe that is everyones goal but I do not like when I quit on something. So I started out great and I have truly slacked off, well here is my pledge to you all I am back with a vengeance because I want this blog to be amazing and I want it amazing for all of you who are reading it right now.
  So where have I been? Well honestly, working my butt off. My blog is suffering but business is growing and I have been painting signs and helping make mason jar chandeliers for the last 6 months. Anyone who has every ran a business knows how much work goes into this kind of lifestyle and it is not always roses being your own boss. You have to kick your own butt, there is no one there to do it other than the customers and that is something you just don't want. I feel like RubbishLove has not only grown as in business wise but smarter and more ethically. We have learned so much this past year and we used all that info to only make us better. We are still learning though, as we all should be still doing. So in a nutshell this is my comeback statement for all you readers that may have forgot me, I would have forgot me to: ) I am ready to do something and so I am!
Alright I hope you all enjoy the new look and the new vibe, I will talk to ya'll soon:))

Don't forget to everything like you mean it and enjoy every moment because now is all we really have.
Love ya,
