Visiting Scarborough with the monkeys handmade business

Adventures with the MONKEYS

I have always wanted to go to Scarborough so why not take the monkeys. I have been making some nortical sock monkeys and wanted to take pictures with them by the sea that was the plan. The weather has been lovely  and ideal opatunity. I haven’t give these monkeys names yet but I’m sure They will have some connection with Scarborough .

The monkeys found a new chair to sit on

The monkeys love adventures, watching the boats and posing for the camera.

Monkeys ahoy

The weather has been so hot so we thought we would go on an adventure with the monkeys.  We like visiting Chester in Cheshire and took two of my favourite sock monkeys Rockford and rainbow with us. Wasn’t long before they was up to mischief. They don’t get out much !

Found a chair to sit on

Sitting on a chair in the hotel waiting to go on adventures.

We visited some church ruins and the monkeys couldn’t wait to do some climbing and get up to mischief.

Rainbow waisted no time climbing

Sliding down the church steps and climbing trees.

Having fun getting hot

Neglecting the monkeys handmade business

Yes its true monkeys have been Negleted

I love the sock monkeys I make and enjoyed making them!

They take me so long to make but I like them to be perfect and the hours I put in don’t match the money I earn making them.

The price of my handmade monkeys is never calculated  on time spent or how much thought went into them  it’s what value people think they should be or what I would like to pay my self.

I love a challenge and the artist in me just wants to create a unique piece that I enjoy doing not having to rush.  As rushing these days isn’t working.

maybe I just want it to go back to a hobby not a business ?  I have worked so hard that I’m not ready give up yet !

So im taking my time with my monkeys and thinking of other ways to make a living. Still with monkeys in mind.

so I’m not neglecting them just doing something different may take a while to get it right so wish me luck.

gave my monkeys a cuddle today 🐵❤️

Me and the monkey

Thanks for reading more blogs soon !

Julie 😊
