My sock monkey tribe on

Lots of photos and advice from different monkey artists.

Free of course.

Grandma Trudy

The first monkey to live with us was made by my husband's mother Grandma Trudy. She passed away many years ago but I'm sure she would have gotten a kick out of me following in the monkey tradition. I called my kids who are in college now to ask if they still had the monkey and happily they did, so they sent me the photos of it.
So the legacy continues...

Grandma Trudy made this monkey in the early '80's and it was the first monkey to move in with us. Posted by Picasa

New Monkeys

I just had some ideas for new monkeys. So I'm working on a pirate, a jester, a hippy, and my Aunt Wanda. Now that the holidays are over, I can start taking orders again.

Red Heel Message Board.

I've started playing around over on the Red Heel Sock Monkey board. It's been a year since I've been over there. If you are on it, look for my user name monkeybusiness, or my 7 new monkey characters: Patrick O'Monkey, Wallace, Kristabelle, Sugarpetals, Kimmie-Lu, Wanda, and Flowerchild.
