It's A Wonderful Life is one of my favorite movies, especially at Christmas.
I was contacted by the gentleman who has a traveling museum about the movie and he attends showings at movie theatres across the country. He wanted me to chart the saying (and one of my favorites that I have used all my life)....All you can take with you is that which you've given away. He wanted it exactly as it is shown in the movie when George Bailey is in the Bailey Building and Loan and he is talking to his father. I only had a small photo to go from...a clip from the movie. I charted, stitched and framed the piece and donated it to the traveling museum. Then I was asked by the It's A Wonderful Life Museum in Seneca Falls to provide charts for them to sell in the gift shop. This is the theme they are going to focus on this year when they have their December celebration of the movie with original cast members. Three of the young children from the movie attend the yearly celebration in Seneca Falls.
I have named the chart The Gift. An enduring message and a good example of how to live......
I was also asked to duplicate the antique motto that is seen in one the scenes in the movie......The Lord Will Provide. The museum will also carry these motto kits for sale.
It was my pleasure to provide these items for the museum and as soon as they have the charts listed in the online gift shop I will show you the link if you would like to purchase one. The donation will help the museum keep this movie tradition going.
These are the fun parts of this business. Providing mottoes for all occasions.....to remember someone, a favorite family saying, etc. I have done quite a few custom mottoes in the past 13 years. I lost count after 200. Family names and favorite sayings were the most popular. A few cute ones.....a few silly ones that were given to make someone smile. Sad ones to remember a lost loved one. But all of them were important and it was my pleasure to be a part of them.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. It's A Wonderful Life!
