Emergency Sock Monkey

I just had to share this story.  I responded to a post in an Etsy group on Facebook, someone in my area was looking for someone to do a sock monkey newborn photo prop.  They needed it in less than 2 days.  A friend was supposed to have made one, but mailed it too late to arrive in time for photos.  Now it's the Friday before Christmas, I'm booked plus I have gifts I'm trying to get made.  What's a person to do?

Well you guessed it I dropped everything else and went into sock monkey mode lol.  How can you not it's for new born pictures.  The outfit was made, and we met for the delivery and I got to see the most adorable little baby boy.  I am so glad I dropped everything and made this outfit for her.  I don't usually get to see people when they receive these photo props.  It was gratifying to see the excitement on her and her husband's face when they saw the outfit.  I can only hope that everyone looks like that when they receive one of my outfits.

This outfit was fun to make, thinking of several more variations!  This one can be purchased at

Holiday Hysteria

Been too long since I have posted, the time seems to be flying by.  Orders for Christmas gifts, new babies and just cause have been great.  Have done a few shows.  My son has been helping me with the shows this year and we have had a blast.  Last night we were at a Wine and Art Show.  We had quiet a few sales and a great time talking to people, singing carols and seeing what the other vendors had there!

Today we were at a show to benefit a youth soccer league.  Was a wonderful show and the kids and their parents were a lot of fun.  Hope everyone else is having a busy and happy holiday season!  Will be posting a lot of new items in the store on Monday and thinking about having a sale.
