New Etsy Shop Item

Just added one of my personal fave items of faith to my Etsy shop, a mini-hanging sign that says WWJD. I don't know why it took me so long to do these.

Years ago, around 2001, I worked in a very busy and very heavily populated office. The staff freely emailed soft porn and dirty jokes to each other. However, when I put "Isaiah 40:31" on my PC as a screensaver, several objected to it, saying it was "religious" and had no place in the work arena. I didn't even have the words, just the Book name and verse number. So, I needed some other way to help me keep myself focused on what was right while I worked.

First, I hung up one of my plastic canvas satin-ribbon crosses on my cubicle wall. They are very pretty and nobody objected to that - go figure (LOL).

Then one day, because I had too little personal time back then, I asked my family friend, Jane, now passed on, to make me a little WWJD sign from plastic canvas. Again, nobody objected at all when I hung it on my cubicle wall.

Now I want to share this joy with others. I may end up even putting a free pattern for these on my blog soon, if I can figure out how to do that with plastic canvas charts.

What I like about these is that they small, just 4" wide and 1-1/2" tall, and they weigh nothing. They hang easily on a push pin. For anyone who would rather a magnet, it is easy to find magnetic-hooks in dollar stores, craft stores, and elsewhere, and hang them on those.

I love to look at those letters and I love to ask myself what He would do, many times during a given day. At work, we run into the insanity of office/company politics, super-bossy-bosses, gossipy co-workers, overwhelming workloads and cranky customers. At home, there is no shortage of reasons for recalling the words those letters represent.

I can even see how easy it might be to hang one on a knob on the dashboard in a car.

Anyhow, I am so glad I began making these seriously and offering them in my Etsy shop.
