Lowes #BuildThanks for Frontline Heroes Project

Mom getting ready to paint wooden signNot a day goes by where I don’t think about the nurses, doctors, grocery store cashiers, delivery folks, firefighter EMTs and everyone taking care of our community during this global pandemic.

Seriously, you all rock.

And now we get to show you. Lowes invited us to show some LOVE for the frontline this weekend by staying home and taking part in the nationwide Lowes #BuildThanks for Frontline Heroes Project.

The idea is to craft homemade thank-you signs for your windows, doors and yards so essential workers can see them from the street to make their commute to and from work a little brighter.


This is a sponsored post. I may be paid, but I’m always honest. For more info, check out my disclosure.

So my question is … how fast can you throw something together?? Because we invite you to join us! The only rule is you gotta use things around the house, and not go to the store to get anything.

So get creative! Use paint, wood, markers, cardboard, construction paper, yarn, the back of something else – even sidewalk chalk! We are using Wyatt’s former DIY toddler bed rail and three-year-old jars of sample paint LOL. Whatever works!

Get the kids involved and tag me in your Instagram stories w/the hashtag  #BuildThanks to showoff your project and gratitude.

It’s going to be fun, you guys. I can’t wait. We debut our sign this Monday, April 6! #LowesPartner.
