Hand Lettering // Let Her Sleep For When She Wakes

"Let her sleep for when she wakes - she will move mountains."

I just love this quote. I just picture tiny baby dreams. Tiny baby aspirations.

My cousin's baby, Claire, had her 1st birthday party over this past weekend and I just knew that I wanted to do something special for her. I'm not even lying when I say she is an absolute joy to be around. This girl doesn't fuss at all. I mean, I'm sure she has her days - but don't we all!? She's constant smiles and giggles. If I was a baby - I'd totally want to be best friends with her because she's just the little miss social butterfly - always wanting everyone to have fun! That's my kind of lady!

Plus, her mom had her in the cutest polka dot shoes that had squeakers in the bottom. Seriously, I just about died with cuteness overload.

The bottom image shows what it looked like framed. A shout out to Hobby Lobby for the 40% off coupon! I love the shabby chic look! (And my corral cords!)

Even on a rainy, gross Monday - I can think about this little girl and she immediately puts a smile on my face. Ugh, Monday's. I can't wait to see what kind of mountains this little lady moves.


  1. I love this . I especially love that frame. Dear Hobby Lobby, please move to Canada!

  2. Do you sell this printable anywhere online (ie. Etsy)? I LOVE IT and want it for my daughter's nursery:)

    1. Hi Kristy! I haven't posted anything to my Etsy shop yet - but if you email me at we can talk details. How does that sound! :) And THANK YOU!! (I can change colors according to the nursery also!

  3. Hi Abby. I'd love information on how to purchase for my daughter's nursery. Are you still selling this print? Thanks! Kristen (
