Notice the button on the side of this blog – it will take you to my Pinterest page!!!

You’ll find some of Sock Monkey’s Business outfits in a shameless self-promotion!!!!!

Once you visit and check out my boards and everyone else’s – hopefully you’ll want to revisit Pinterest often!

I’ve borrowed the following from their website (or rather re-pinned it!)

What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Pinterest’s goal is to connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

I’ve been having fun collecting quotes and just looking at the pinboards. When I find out that someone has re-pinned something on one of my boards – I check out their boards and get some great ideas!!!!


Dream it – Do it

I’ve also aquired a new camera and sewing machine!!!!! Luckily when my sewing machine died – I had enough in profits to purchase the new one!!!!!

Thank you for your support of Sock Monkey’s Business – besides having lots of creative fun – we’ve made special orders for both dolls and sock monkeys and rescued a dolly who was a Christmas present!!!!!!

Sock Monkey’s Business

It all started with a sock monkey who needed clothes. After designing appropriate apparel for him, I branched out to create custom outfits for American Girl dolls. I use my sewing, quilting, designing background to create one-of-a kind creations for any sized doll – or monkey. Please check back often to see my creations!
