ee cummings Poetry Wood Sign | I Carry Your Heart With Me Wood Sign | Custom Wood Sign | Gift for Loss


Welcome to my shop! I hope you find something special to gift, to display and to love.

One of my dearest girlfriends asked me to paint this special sign for her daughter. It is a special quote by e.e. cummings that they often say to each other. "I carry your heart with me I carry it in my heart." This wood sign would be a perfect gift for a parent or a child, but it has also been a wonderful gift for a grieving parent or someone who has suffered a loss.

Measuring 11" x 7", each sign is cut, sanded, stained and painted all by hand, all by me. No two signs are identical and since they are handmade, they are all perfectly imperfect. I don't use vinyl letters or stencils, only paint. This sign can be ordered in a black background with white writing or white background and black writing. both signs come in a walnut color frame. If you would like a different background or frame color, just reach out.

All of my signs come gift wrapped. If this is a gift for someone (other than yourself), simply let me know in the notes who the gift is for and I will calligraphy a gift tag with the recipient's name to put on top.

** If there is ANY issue with your order please contact me prior to leaving a review. My goal is to fully meet your expectations and make you something you absolutely love. Thank you! **

My friend loved this sign. It was a birthday gift and she was so pleased.

It's beautiful. This was exactly as pictured and it's just what I hoped for.

This placard is just what I wanted to go with a photo I have. Beautiful addition to my living room decor.

I got this for all my grand children. They each had a personal label with their name, beautifully gift wrapped.
