monday. monkeys. mahem.

sock monkey red heelhappy memorial day! can you guess what fun things i have in store for you?

sock monkey sock stash yes, sock monkeys are coming! i pulled out 12+ pair o' vintage red heel socks from my stash today. first i will be washing/ dying/ ageing the socks to prepare them for their magical transformation into crazy monkeys! then the sewing, stuffing, personality-making, and custom outfits that gives them their uniqueness. it's been a long time between sock monkey updates, and i'm very excited (as i hope you are too) to begin the new group. i will post progress pics here so keep checking back :)

in etsy news, our blu bobo ePattern has landed in 2 more treasuries! i think he takes the prize for being my most featured ePattern. and i'm so flattered since it is one of my most classic "peng peng style" bears. give this pattern a try if you haven't already! my ePatterns are available exclusively through yours truly in my etsy shop.

for meat-free monday (8 days a week here :) we grilled up veggie skewers, tofurkey beer brats w/ all the fixins, fresh organic carrot/parsley/celery juice, and oven baked french fries (i make em spicy served with a decadent dollop of vegenaise and katsup). delish and nutrish!

have fun and stay cool!

and speaking of cool stones...i spent way too much time today sniffling over rock and roll hall of fame induction speeches. dare you enter the alphabetical vortex. ☠ ☠ ☠


presenting peach pup - new design!

tubby mohair dog
einco tubby vintage style doghow delish is this little peachy pup?! he's inspired by my long-time fascination with the vintage einco tubby dogs.. which are similar in style to chiltern's early 1900's master teddy. so a round-headed pup is a natural progression.
i've only made one other round-headed einco inspired bear/pup, "kentaro" way back in 2005 for Abracadabra UK shop:

i love the way peach pup (oh gosh, another PP!) turned out and hope you love him too! btw, peach pup is neutered and very friendly! he's available for adoption today on my web site. bow wow wow! SOLD
