Through the Eyes of a Monkey


I wanted to have these guys up for a Valentine post. 
They were done, in fact I almost have four finished at this point, I'm just slow at taking photos and posting. 
Actually, I really think time has just been speeding up. Seriously, just ask anyone pushing 50 or over! 
 I was honestly shocked when February was over! 
Anyway, I think I find out in a day or two, whether or not I'm accepted into a craft show. 
I think It's all that I've needed to really get producing, a deadline. (or the possibility of one)
I'm planning on making eight monkeys in total and they're all going to have little outfits, which I'm half planning now. I'm going to be a little sad to see my best buttons gone. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for monkey eyes while thrifting, but haven't had much luck. Does anyone else have thrift shop dreams, about being allowed to enter the secret room in the back, were all the good stuff is? Like huge jars of really old buttons?

Love your blog and also the monkeys are fabulous -- I'm sure they'll be very popular at the craft fair.

Oh those monkeys are just the sweetest!!! And yes, I do have thrift store dreams too - usually good ones. Although once I dreamt I found a whole bolt of fabric printed with images of Maury Povich and I was so excited I could barely pay my 3 dollars and get out of the store. I think I woke up laughing. Who knows where that one came from?
