Sock Kangaroos.

These little duders were a commission from a Canadian friend who moved to Australia.  Her nieces' birthdays are rather close together and she felt they needed something to remind them of their aunt and uncle...!

I love making these fun little monsters...they don't take that long to make them but I like how cute these little "Starmen" (as Ren has called them) turn out....
They only take one sock to make so if I only have one left, it works out pretty well.

Totally Elefunky

She's crafty..

Yesterday I had a rather successful day at Art in Strathcona Park...Ren was nice enough to take some pictures which was great because I didn't really have any before....I dig 'em...except for the one of me making a weird face when he decided to include me in the photo...though you don't get to see that one...because I don't want to upload it for you.


Ele-foots checking out the scenery

It is funny.  These little monsters I used to just make out of left over sock bits.
They have actually become so popular that I actually buy socks to make just these
little dooders...

Guess which thing in this picture I DIDN'T make...?

What does li'l pinky have to scream about?


Ahh of my favourite places to visit...and when I do...I pick up socks...lots of socks.  I haven't actually been in a couple years, but my friend was just there and picked me up my favourite socks to work with...the London Underground ones...!

More Painted monster...

In preparation for my craft sale tomorrow I have been frantically sewing like mad...I have had a new desire to make some more painted creatures after visiting Germany and having them become decals for the car.  I admit that they are actually my favourite things to make, though Sockmonkeys seem to be much more popular!

Anyways...enjoy some painted monster...some of them have orange backing right from part of my wedding dress!

Warm and Fuzzy part 2

Hey...Remember THIS post?  You know the one where I gushed all over how my friend Mani had made my year by having me draw up one of my monsters for him to put it on the back of his car?  Well he made me one and today I finally had the chance to add it to my car...

Now our cars have matching tattoos...


for a few minutes I was cursing trying to get it on my car...

hmm...perhaps I should have cleaned the WHOLE car...


Oh Mani....I heart you so much!


Having just returned from Germany I need to take advantage of my Jet Lag and get my Monkey on in preparation for a craft show next weekend...(but more on that later)

In the mean time...enjoy some Monkeys...
