Once upon a time there was a lady that found me on Etsy, that ordered 80 sock monkeys for her wedding favors, here is the story on how she found me.
On February 1 2008 I was asked to make 70 sock Monkeys to give away at a wedding, here is how it went.
As I make them I want to show everyone the progress on them. I have to get them done before may 1, I don't think it will take me that long probably 3 at the latest. In the mean time I am going to find out a little about this bride to be and why she is giving away Monkeys at her Wedding, and why she chose me.
Ok its 4:00 Pm and I just got her reply to all my questions. Here are her own words that just made me cry while reading it. Here it is.
why did you pick me to make your Monkeys?
What do you do for a living?
Why did you choose to give away Monkeys at your Wedding?
So I made, and made ,and made sock monkeys for one whole month, then she wanted 10 more, well after about one month and a week I have finally finished the 80 monkeys, Yey I am going to celebrate.
and here they all are. all 80 sock monkeys that are attending this wedding.
So they got married and I hope to get some pictures of the wedding. She said
My monkeys were a big hit. She ran out of monkeys to give away, so she put in another order. and here they are, she needed a chef and his sexy wife, 3 photographers, a working out girl, a ballerina,
and the other to showing here. Here is the link to the incredible wedding pictures.
Here is the link to more of her monkeys
