Check Out Our Blue Springs Yard Sign Spotlight!

I have always known I wanted to be part of celebrations for people but was not quite sure how. I knew I enjoyed entertaining, being creative, and organizing events. Should I open a wedding venue? Some sort of catering business? A mobile bar? The list of ideas went on and on, but my husband Grant and I were not quite sure how things would pan out. Running a small business or start-up can sound very intimidating, and having no experience in doing anything other than entertaining at home, we kept our minds open! When the opportunity came up to take over the Blue Springs Yard DeSIGNS, we were excited to jump at it! We are so excited to be running a small business and serving families and friends in our own backyard. It is truly a dream of ours to be able to run a business that our kids can be part of and share in the successes and failures that we learn along the way! We have such great support from the team and from our family, so jumping in at 9 months pregnant with our third kid on the way couldn’t have seemed like a more crazy AND more perfect time for us.

My favorite sign so far, Blue Springs Yard deSIGNS, has set was a special mother and son milestone celebration. Turning 40 and 16 are two very special moments, and I was even more elated when Dad called to order it and said, “I don’t know what I am doing, but I know my wife wants one of these.” I gave the husband kudos for calling to order and told them we just had a baby the day before, but we definitely wanted to make this happen, and the sign turned out very fun and very big!

Blue Springs mother and son birthday sign

During the takeover in May, my husband had to be the main sign slinger for Yard deSIGNS Blue Springs as I was 9 months pregnant. I spent most of the time getting all the signs prepped or helping take down but he did the installs. The most interesting part of this business is seeing why people order their signs. While there are some really exciting milestones like birthdays or retirement, there are also celebrations of life, like one we had for a mother who lost a son and didn’t want to ever miss celebrating his birthday. This business has been a great reminder that everyone has a story and that we are playing a very small role in their day but hopefully bringing joy and smiles with us! We hope that when we receive orders, we build lasting relationships and give back to our community. It is our passion to help other families just like us, so partnering with other local companies is what we really hope to excel at this year.

Blue Springs just Because Signs

The other part of why I enjoy YD is the excuse to have even more family time and make fun out of our days spent together doing signs. When we have all gone out together we have the kids pass out discount flyers and help us organize or spell out signs as we pull them. It has been a great way for our family to spend more time being present and enjoying each other’s company. Our three kids now are sign slingers in training and our dog, Murphy, has been on several outings with us as well. He is happiest when he gets to ride around in the front seat with the windows down and cruise around (and he usually gets a pup cup out of it, too)!
