Item details



basswood, stain, clear finish

The encouraging quote on this hand-carved sign is a reminder to focus on things that matter. This compact sign sits sturdily on a desk, shelf, or stack of books. The sign was hand-lettered from my original design, and is completely hand-carved.

Size: 7-7/16 x 2-3/4 x 5/8"
Materials: Wood, stain, finish.

Remind yourself to focus with this little hand-carved sign! I have encountered this quote in several contexts, including an entrepreneurial mastermind group, a financial management class, a workshop on spiritual growth, and a writer's conference. I have found it to be true in each of those contexts. When you focus on something positive, the energy of your attention can help it to flourish.

This hand-carved wood decorative item would make a lovely gift, especially for a graduate or entrepreneur. Even a gardener might enjoy being reminded that growth happens when there is focus.

If you have a quote you would like to have custom carved, send us a message!
