a Made by Me Monday GIVEAWAY!

I am so excited to show you this adorable {ifIdosaysomyself}
Baby Sleeping Sign!
I have a friend who is just 3 weeks away from having her FIRST baby! I keep telling her that she doesn't know what she's in for... haha! One thing she will know for sure is Don't Wake the Sleeping Baby! I decided to make her this cute "please knock" sign to hang on her front door. So SUPER easy and waayyyy necessary to a new mom. :)
__________________________
I used a leftover piece of wood from our Super Saturday project. I already had tan craft paint on hand and since this new little bundle is going to be a girl, I definelty wanted this sign to be GIRLY!
I picked a piece of antique PINK scrapbook paper and cut it to fit perfectly on the front. I mod podged it on, sanded the edges a little and added a little bit of stain.
I then added some vinyl lettering to the front, this is a sure way to keep the UPS guy from ringing the bell! :)
Hot glue some ribbon to the back for a door hanger and done!
I love the way it turned out...but my son thinks differently! When my 10 year old son first saw this sign, he immediately said that this is NOT a good idea because I added the part underneath "you wake her, you take her!" What's so bad about that? He says "you are just giving permission to STRANGERS to come in and take their baby!" haha! I guess I never thought of it that way before!
Today I am giving away the vinyl lettering so you can make your own sign or stick this right on your door- to not just one, but FIVE lucky winners!
You can choose brown, black, beige or white lettering. And you can also choose to have the "you wake her/him, you take her/him!" on your sign or leave it off. I personally love it but obviously some people don't! ;)
To enter, all you have to do is leave me
 one comment on this post.
The winners will be announced on Friday, Sept. 23.
Happy Monday!

I like this I would put this out my baby would sleep through anything now. But it would have been great earlier to have something like that. However now it would be "No screaming and slamming doors the baby is sleeping" That happens all the time.

That's Brilliant! I can't tell you how many times the UPS man's doorbell ring has awaken my son. I would love the lettering to read. "You wake him, you take him." :-D

Thanks for the sign and the outfits Marni. Actually when I took the sign out of the bag all I saw was your business card on the back and thought it was weird of you to make me a fancy board with your name on it... then I flipped it around and felt like a fool.
