Making Monkeys

Summer is gone, and I'm not really missing it.  This summer was not one of the best.  It seemed like everything "summer" I tried to do, turned out less than "summery".  My daughter went back to school last Thursday.  This year she is a freshman in high school.  We had a nice summer together, but I am a little bit happy that there is more time for me to focus on giggleFritz and Company, both business-wise and creative-wise.  There is so much to do, and it is difficult to run your business with so many distractions (like the full-time job I still need). 

What have I been doing?  People ask me what I have been up to.  I usually just say, "You know, WORK."  If you look at my sewing area, you would know that cleaning is not something I have been doing.  But, I have been making more sock monkeys.  I sew and crochet a number of different things that I sell in our art/craft fair booth at shows and on the giggleFritz and Co. Web Site:  I love making sock monkeys the most.   
I don't know what I love more when I have finished making a sock monkey.  Either the cute sock monkey face with his round head and ears (and sometimes hat!), or when we are in our booth and I hear, "Look, Mom! Sock Monkeys!"  : )  
That's what I have been up to, and if I have it my way, that's what I'm going to keep doing!
Happy Monday, All!  -Missie
