"No Ladybirds in the Studio"

We now have a sign to warn hopeful ladybirds away. My nearly-three-year-old assistant decided there was a need for such a sign, then designed and made it all by herself. She even wrote "NO" (sort of), just in case the ladybirds couldn't read signs.

Phew!... I was getting a bit worried about invading ladybirds. We'll be ok now!

I actually have a tutorial I was going to post tonight, but spent too long in Officeworks (and we won't mention how much you can buy when you go to Officeworks to buy a few glue-sticks...). I now don't have time to finish it tonight. Watch this space....

my little miss is terrified of crawling things so that sign would work well at our house...

I love your daughter's sign! My youngest is 22; I miss those special days when the girls (I have 3) used to help me sew.

I breed ladybirds in our vegetable garden by growing a nice crop of powdery mildew. Perhaps I need a "welcome" sign along these lines?

Whew! Good to know the ladybird problem is taken care of! How sweet is that sign?! We have beetles all over here. Maybe I should have my son make a sign...well, he probably won't...he's 16 years old! Oh well!

Oh my goodness I love this sign! What is it that kids love about signs?? My 7 yr. old son still has a fascination with them and makes them for everything...he started when he was about your daughter's age. We just took down the "No gurls allowed, except grammas" sign from the basement/playroom door!

I love your blog, thanks for writing!

So cute Nikki! Now you won't need to worry about those ladybirds any more.
