Mischievous Monkeys


Having some internet issues tonight.....but thought I would just tease you all a bit more.
I know, I'm a horrible person.
But I can't stand it, I am so smitten with these darn monkeys.


 It's going to be hard to give them names, in fact, it may be downright impossible.
They will be as different as the rugs we weave here at Crazy as a Loom.


Do you love their little hats???




Sometimes in life, something will come along, that just makes you smile.
The reason may mystify you, but there it is.


We don't always have to know why.  We don't always need the answers to what makes us happy.


We just need to learn to let it happen.
Sometimes, I think, we don't do that.

Monkey see, monkey do.


Just for today, I am going to let it happen.


Being ok with what is.
Smiling at the incongruity of it all.

The monkeys made me do it.

How much are you asking for these fabulous, funny monkeys?

Susan Harvey said...

Well I know that I want two. One for ME and another for my new grandson!

When do they go onto the page for sale?

Ooooh, great! I like your monkeys. They are fantastic and it makes me happy to look at them. I can't say which monkey is the nicest. It seems to be that every monkey has it's own charakter.

Cheeky Monkeys! They are most adorable and I predict they will fly out of your studio.

You can't help smiling when you see them.

I think you should make cats just like this too.. instead of hats, add ears ...and a cat shaped nose sewn on. CrazyCats. We all know you as that Crazy Cat lady, don't ya know. talk about something that really relates to Crazy as a Loom :-)

Hartwood Roses said...

Each of them have their own little personality, too ... depending on the set of the button eyes, I guess. How cute!

I want to know O's opinion .. did she have a suggestion for their name or did she just point and say MINE!

I love them, especially the pink and green one!! What about "Crazy Capuchins"!

I walk at a park every day. There are stray cats that a lady feeds. She has named every cat with a name starting with the letter J. Her name is Janie and I think that is why the letter J. She has gotten very creative.
Maybe you can name the monkeys with names that begin with a certain letter. In your comment section to your blog we can brainstorm with possible names. Silly ones would be fun.

I don't know why but "Mister Melvin" keeps coming to mind.

How about Silly Socks for a monkey moniker?

Hilary said...

These are absolutely adorable.. cutest and best-dressed sock monkeys I've ever seen.

Hmmm...

Chic Chimps

Rhesus Phesus

The Apes of Craft (with apologies to John Steinbeck)

Scotched Ape (for plaid socks)

Chimp off the Old Sock

Prime Mates

Hot Monkey Sox

Welcome to my world.
