And just a reminder, our Christmas tour of homes is this coming Thursday–hope to see you there!

Because Words Matter


The very first thing I hung on the barn walls was the word REST.

After a year of planning, scheming, hoping dreaming–we needed the visual reminder to rest.

Sometimes we focus so much on getting to a certain place, we forget to stop and enjoy it when it finally comes.

Or maybe that’s’ just me?

So now my barn is bossing me around and I’m trying to listen.

So even though “slow” is my word of the year.

“Rest” is my mantra. My battle cry. My plea.

I want to hang those letters around my neck so I don’t forget them.

words matter

Maybe you need to listen to a word too?


Or maybe there’s a name, phrase, verse, quote, or special day you want to be reminded of, or you want to encourage someone with.


Now you can create your own set of letterpress words for your home or for a gift out of all sorts of pretty wooden letterpress block letters.

There’s a completely easy and fun interactive letterpress site where you can play all day and create all sorts of fun things.

This summer I got to see the behind the scenes-sneak peek of this website while hanging out with the sponsors of this post –the (in)courage team and we were all blown away at how user-friendly and fun (addictive) this new site is, you will love it.


You can type in the word or phrase you want to create into the “filter by word” section on the bottom left and then grab the style of letter you want. Once you get your word or phrase the way you like it, you can order it for your home, but also you can pin it, email it, tweet it, and put it on Facebook. And of course, the letterpress will tally up the cost of your blocks so you can see your  running total.

Here are a few things I created on the fun letterpress website…

i never get my name on anything

Weird named people unite, we can finally have our names on something! This almost makes up for all of those personalized bike license plates, pencils and mugs I couldn’t find when I was eight years old. Take that Amy and Jennifer!

awaken hope

There’s a phrase I’ve thought about putting in the barn. So I just used the Letterpress Blocks site to write the words, then took a screen shot, pulled it into my Keynote program (I’m a dork and use Keynote on my mac computer to make everything but pic monkey or Photoshop would work better) I removed the background and sized it correctly to overlay on one of the barn walls so I could see how it would look. How fun is that?!

words matter

These words make great wedding gifts, baby gifts, first home gifts, inside joke gifts for your BFF, business name and more.


If you make something you want to show off, be sure to hit the “share” button and tweet it, add @thenester if you want me to see it.


Katie wrote more about the letterpress blocks (in)courage — you can see the backs of the blocks and the different ways to display them, the sizes and more.

The whole time I was working on this post I had this song in my head. It’s such a reminder of the power of words and why I love this new line of blocks–they are beautiful, meaningful, fun to create and #wordsmatter …

If you follow me on instagram, we’ve been chatting it up about This Book, and then there was an offshoot discussion about the podcast Tsh did with Megan where for a few mintues they talked about how different Meyers-Briggs personality types approach the ideas behind the book. It’s hilarious and here’s a link to the podcast. At least that’s how I remember it, I listened to it months ago…

on my nightstand: (actually, on my kitchen counter, because my nightstand is too dark to get a decent photo…

All the Light We Cannot See: Caroline told me I would love this book, so one evening, Chad was going out near a book store and I begged him to buy it for me even though it was full price, we took out a loan and paid the seven million dollars for a full price book at a book store and it was worth EVERY PENNY! I’m so jealous of anyone who hasn’t read it yet, because they still get to experience the joy of reading it! LUCKY.

Money Making Mom: THIS is the book I’ve (we’ve) been waiting for Crystal to write, right?!

Big Magic: As much as I hate book jackets and am pretty sure Satan invented them, this one wins everything (but I still removed it because #annoying). Also, I can’t stop talking about this book to all of my writerly friends. If you write in anyway, read it.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: I’m in the middle of this one, too bad I’m reading it after All the Light, because even though it’s good, I’m not as attached to it as I was the other–it takes place during the same time frame which makes for a good read after All the Light.

Soul Keeping: This book. YES. Why isn’t everyone in the world talking about this book?! This is another favorite of the year, I bought the hardcover version (trashed the dumb book jacket) and plan on re-reading it every year.

Simply Tuesday (re-reading) This book (written by my sister) feels like the BFF to Soul Keeping, they are wonderful companions to each other.
