do not enter! nate's room!


Every little boy needs a sign for his room. You know the kind—the ones that say DO NOT ENTER! NATE'S ROOM! Some day we'll see that skull and cross bones, all-black sign on his door, but for now he has this cute, little door knob sign instead.

It is mounted on thick corrugated cardboard and hangs by a rope-style ribbon.


I had printed out a few copies of Tiny Tobie (from Some Odd Girl digital images) to practice coloring with my new Copics. After I got this one colored just the way I liked it, I knew I needed to give him a good home—and this little sign was born!


I am really starting to get then hang of the shading you can accomplish with Copics. I really liked how well the shirt, jeans, shoes and bone turned out.

Nate was so excited that Tiny Tobie looked so much like him, that he colored one, too! And then we had to make his a door knob sign, too.


Thanks for stopping by! I'm excited to share this post today. Nate and I had so much fun with our impromptu crafting this past holiday weekend. We made a few projects for no reason at all except to have fun. :)
