You may remember when I had asked the universe to Give Me a Sign. With so many applicable spots around my house, I was having trouble placing a Live the Dream wall plaque that I had found at Pier One. Then I even took a stab at creating some of my very own original wall plaques just for new parents based on some unrealistic ones offered at Pottery Barn Kids.
Since then I’ve received countless (aka at least twenty-two) emails asking where people can buy my mock-decor. I’m really unsure whether these people are looking for a gag gift or perhaps a present for new parents that’s a little more rooted in reality. What would you think of someone buying these for a new parent’s wall:
Speaking of sleep…it really is a lovely sentiment.
And you know what babies love to do even more than sleep? That’s right, poop. They love to poop, and now, like it or not, you’re down with O.P.P. (Other People’s Poop):
I had to tell those new parents not to wish those sleepless nights away just yet though…
When it comes down to it, I guess I really don’t care why anyone would want to buy something like this, I just needed to know if I’m sitting on a goldmine of mock wall-art?
I felt inspired.
As my creative wheels were whizzing, something occurred to me – why should I minimize my sales by only targeting just one demographic? Surely people without children and those with older kids still want to decorate their walls with something, right?
Why not toss a little inspirational decor, which seems to be pretty popular on places like Pinterest and Etsy! Perhaps I can give it that reality-based spin that worked so well on the baby sentiment’s plaques.
So for anyone who likes their art to make a statement that cuts to the chase, I give you More Signs:
Seriously, don’t be a dick.
Sometimes our lives are too cluttered. Time to cut back. Start with the obvious.
There’s no shame in knowing your limits.
What do you think? Do I have a future in wall decor?
