Hi, we are Wes and Chelsea Gorsuch, the founders of Joyfully Said Signs. We are so honored that you stopped by our little shop! Every business has a story to tell, and ours is no different.
I (Chelsea) first started making and selling handmade signs in the spring of 2016, right around the time our 3rd child was born. I have always loved the power of the written word, and have also developed a love for using decor to create an inviting and beautiful space for our friends and family. Combining those loves seemed like a natural fit! From the start, my mission has been to create signs that infuse life and love into the homes that they hang in. We have been so blessed to be able to create signs for so many sacred occasions, celebrations, and life defining events.
Our methods for making our signs have changed a bit since we first started, but one thing hasn't- my heart does a little happy dance each and every time we sell a sign. This business has offered me the opportunity to resign from a full time job as a school counselor and instead work a part-time, flexible schedule to be available for our three young children. Additionally, we have been able to hire several family members and friends to work alongside of us. It really has been an amazing dream turned reality, and we cannot thank the Lord for this opportunity, or our customers, enough!
Finally, a fun little video we created as an entry into Chip Gaines' "Chip-Starter" contest. Though we didn't win, we sure had fun making this!
