Custom orders welcome

I wanted to share with everyone this cute pair of sock monkeys that a customer ordered for NICU (Neonatal) Nurse who cares for sick and premature/preemie babies.
So this is what I have come up with. She is dressed in her banana print scrubs with a skirt.
The baby has a little bit of hair and a sweet little bow on her head.
Let me know what you think.

A celebrity just bought from me

The coolest thing happen to me today. I just had a customer buy from me and she is a celebrity, How cool is that!
I am so excited. She is sending one to Carol Duvall They are close friends. I am sure people that work with clay have bought many of their books.

I did a little interview with her and I asked her how she found me.

I was a regular on Carol's show for 9 seasons. If you go to and type in my name Becky Meverden, you can see the segments I was in. She is a dear friend of mine and we are still stay in touch.

I'm not sure how I found you. I think someone mentioned you on their blog. I'm quite the blog addict including my own:

I love your unique style. The sock monkeys are just darling!

I am sending this to Carol because she collects sock monkeys and I just couldn't resist yours.

Becky Meverden

There you have it. Now do you see why I am so excited.

and an outing with Olivia Newton Monkey at the the tea house, the waiter was kind enough to bring her her own chai tea and water cups :).

You can order your very own little friend from me, I can make you a custom sock monkey to fit your personality, or anyone you know.
They make great gifts for young and old. Please visit The Monkey Shop to get your very own sock monkey.
