I have a friend that makes some incredible socks. I decided to give it try and make a sock monkey out of a pair of their socks. Well this is what I came up with, This sock monkey will go home to be with this wonderful family that makes this wonderful socks.
Let me tell you a little about them....
Almost all of the wool items in their shop are from their own sheep. Buy it straight from the shepherd!
The family lives on a small family farm, where they raise sheep and make things, including items made with their wool. Mike has been spinning wool for a couple of years, and has just started with his new love--the circular sock knitting machine. Lona has been crocheting all her life (since age 8) and weaving rugs for 10-15 years. The kids help with making the cards and cat toys, as well as tagging items and marketing.
Buying from them will help a small family farm remain sustainable. :-)
Stop by their shop to see all the wonderful things they make.
If you need some sock monkeys please stop by The monkey Shop to see what I have for you.

I made this Rug for my dear friend Maria. She gave me a huge bag of fabric to do what ever I wanted to do with it. Well I found some huge pieces that I provably would not use, and instead of taking it to goodwill I decided to use it to make this great rug for her.
She is getting her new sewing room done, and I thought this would feel good under her feet. Or she could use it wear ever she would like to use it.
Maria if you get a chance to read this.
I just wanted to thank you for giving me all that fabric that I hope to make lots of letters with.

Sock monkeys have not been selling, but that will not stop me from trying to make money.
I love working with my hands, crocheting cutting things, etc.
Well I have decided to make iron- on's so people can express themselves by adding a few word to anything they want. Here are my new iron on's. Please stop by dulcescreations to see more.

I bought some Honey from one of my etsy team member last week, and I wanted to share my favorite way to eat honey.
You need toast, peanut butter, bananas and honey from Butterflyheavens
Slice half of the banana set aside. spread 1 tea spoon of peanut butter to each side of your toast, then drizzle the honey on both sides of your toast, lay all the slices of bananas on one side of the prepared toast. Add the other piece of toast over it and you will have my delicious peanut butter banana honey sandwich.
Don't forget to stop by to get your honey at Butterflyheavens.
Now you can enjoy the rest of your day.
