The monkey business has begun! Not to be outdone by Will
and his new job, Wilhelmina has her own enterprising idea.
Business has been a bit slow...
... then the competition moved in on her.
Baby monkey understands the concept of pricing very well.
I painted the kitchen walls last week and it's taking me some time to get things the way I'd like them. Kitchen kitsch doesn't happen on it's own and doesn't happen too fast when you're busy painting signs and crocheting sock monkey cruise wear. I discovered that with a few minor alterations, if you use a worsted weight yarn and H hook, Barbie patterns fit sock monkeys very well. Free bikini pattern here and Free sunhat pattern here. I crocheted the granny heart garland from the free pattern here at CraftyMinx.
I also learned something I got so excited about (it doesn't take much). I have long lamented the loss of the cents key...
If you're old enough to remember typing papers on a typewriter, you know what I mean. Well, in trying to find a cents sign I learned that I can hit OPTION 4 on my Mac keyboard and get a cents sign! Oh happy days. Not all fonts have them, but many do. (Sorry, it's not quite so easy on Windows).
Wilhelmina's exhausted after her one customer and is on a break now. Or maybe she ate too many cinnamon hearts. That is precisely why I avoided the Valentine Smarties or I'd be looking the same way. But in a different outfit.
Thanks for coming by!
