No More Monkeys!
I was rather excited to meet up with the maker of these signs and the saying, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed." is quite fitting considering my blog name. She has created many variations (colors) of this sign and they are all wonderful. They measure 12" by 12" and are $18ARV.
Each sign is handmade, they are birchwood that has been sanded and painted, which you can choose the color. She applies two coats of acrylic paint and hand paints the lettering. She then distresses them if you'd like, I love the look of distressed crafted items so I had her distress our sign, if you'd prefer she can stain it instead. As a finishing touch she wither uses wax or polyurethane to help protect them. These monkey signs come with a little SAWTOOTH hanger on the back.
I remember when I was a little girl I'd jump on the bed and my grandpa and mom would sing the Five Little Monkeys song with me. This is the reason I named my blog Mami's 3 Little Monkeys, my children will try anything to be able to jump on a bed, even if that means they have to kneel and bounce. They even jump on the top bunk. They are seriously little monkeys! So the sign definitely fits our household. I have to hang another nail so I can hang this sign, but I haven't decided if I want to chance hanging it in their room. The boys are quite mischievous! Just like monkeys.
I love the craftsmanship and durability of this sign. I know it will last til I have grandchildren one day, but lets not go there... When my oldest seen this sign she gave me that look, like mom, really?! She joins her little brothers in jumping on the beds and she is nine years old. But who am I kidding, I'm an adult and a mother and I still jump on the bed with the kids every now and then. Shhh....
