Always busy at this time I try and keep the postage cost as low as possible lots of sock monkeys to make and post .
I buy cardboard boxes and lovely purple tissue paper to put inside and all wrapped in a cellophane with lilac butterfly pattern . I think it’s important the wrapping . Each monkey has its own tag as well as a sewn in tag if CE tested .
I take a long time making so why not wrap them nicely .
My small baby monkeys are also in a small box
So cute !!
All my monkeys have a name tag can be a name for monkey or the name of person it’s going to 💕
Tissue paper and cellophane wrap
All wrapped up
New cellophane and tissue for christmas. Dotty cellophane and red tissue love Christmas 🎄
Christmas monkeys wrapped
Also now adding a little Thankyou card with a bow to add that personal touch all tags made by me
new gift bags with my home made stickers for those who collect / can put one in order if giving as a gift 😊
To Day was Rocks birthday . Always best to start the day with a cup of coffee before the day ahead .
As I explained earlier rock was one of my first batch of monkeys when I first started making them as a business . I had made others but you just know when your getting it right !
Had a good day decided to take him with me today . Monday’s shopping day so this morning we went to tesco . He was very good had an attraction to all things yellow for some reason as you can see in the pictures .
I got some funny looks . Trying to take pictures of my mischievous monkey climbing on the cornflakes haha . We called in the cafe for a bite to eat as it was lunch time . Time for a scone and a pot of tea he’s a very hungry monkey .
Finished our shopping bought lots of cakes for rocks birthday party!
When I got home me and hubby had a bit of gardening to do . I have an apple tree and why hubby cut the grass I collected the apples from the tree with rock .
Filled a bucket full of apples but still lots more. If I don’t collect them they will fall on floor and rot and go to waist Perhaps make apple pie . Rock wasn’t very helpful he was to excited about the party ! Or was that me .
So much fun here’s rock with his cake and birthday cardLove this picture forgot to mention rock likes custard creams .
all got a bit crazy after that but we all had a great time !
So Happy birthday rock and hope there will be many more .
thankyou for reading it’s true I never grew up all just a bit of fun .
