Crazy as a Loom

Monkey biz

It's been a crazy busy day.  I've been flying from one place to another.
But I just had to pop in and give you a heads up.

The MONKEYS are coming.
I'm serious.
They'll be here soon.
And they are MARVELOUS.

Now for a name.  You KNOW they have to have a name.  It has to be good.  It has to connect them somehow to Crazy as a Loom (I think).  I am going to give you all two weeks to come up with a great one.  I will choose on June 14th, and of course the winner will get their very own MONKEY.

The internet, and my blog, have found the perfect, crafty person to help make it happen.   I can't believe how well it is working out.
More on that later.
Here are the pictures I just got.

Look at their little butts????  Are they too adorable??

They are getting ready to make the trip to New Yawwwwk.

And from here, they will be ready to meet the world.
Oh, my.

Wow Hillary--these are wonderful. But how could they be anything other than . . . Loomy Bins: monkeys to love and adore.

I think you've already hit on the name with Monkey Biz.

BTW, I want to purchase on of those monkeys for an upcoming baby shower.

I was going to suggest Chunky Munky, but I like Lesley's better.

They are so stinkin' adorable that I am going to have to buy some as well. Can hardly wait until they go on sale.

Blogger ate my comment so this time I'm trying the anonymous route.

I'm making monkeys for my son's school charity fundraiser. I dressed one as a pirate with tricorn hat, eyepatch and frock coat and that one will hopefully be selling for more than pocket money prices (photo at woolforbrains dot net)

Yours don't need dressing because the fabric is so lovely.

So cute, I love them!

Mrs. Turkey said...

You need one Monkey for display purposes....Marvin Monkey and his Funky Monkey Pals...and give each monkey his or her name, Maynard, Missy, Malcolm, Mandy, ....etc
doesn't need to be all M names...was just using that as an example.
They are some cute!

Not your mother's monkey , that is for sure! Very cute!

Amanda Cutler said...

Great post!! These are the best!! :-P

Daryl said...

I want one and if I dont win, I am buying one ... I think LoomMonkey might work

Mary said...

How about Monkey Love.
They are really cute.

Bev said...

I don't know why, but Disco Monkeys popped into my head when I saw the green and red ones. Might have been better if disco was popular when the psychodelic phase was going on in the '60s. The ones in the first picture look like Scandinavian winter sweaters! They are all amazing!

They are very adorable and so nice.

Crazy Loomkeys? Loomonkeys? Though that one almost sounds like Loo Monkeys :) Loomykins?
