Busy times in the Life of the Monkey Maker.

Hello all - Well lots of news here at the Hut. We have sold this Hut and are just waiting for our date to move to our new bigger Hut with a lovely big garden. So I have not been taking new orders but getting on top of the orders I have ready to pack the craft room up into boxes. Here are a few of the latest cards I have made and will soon have some pictures of the latest monkeys to be re-homed.
On top of all the moving mayhem I also had an interview for a promotion at work ... hope to find out tomorrow so keep your monkey mitts crossed for me.
In the meantime have a gander at these cards - all made for special orders.
Let me know what you think. (:(|)x
This is a SOG ( image coloured with promarkers. I used doodlebug numbers and letters and mounted the patterned paper onto purple which I finished with my paper punch. I added a Craftwork Cards greeting which I coloured to co-ordinate with the bright paper. I added the spellbinders cut hearts, a few gems, a ribbon and button to finish the card off.

I loved colouring this picture - which was actually a freebie off the internet. I was asked to do a horsey card for a man... two subjects I'm not that great at doing! I uses MME papers and spellbinders nesties to cut the shape. I added the doodlebug letters and some gems with a Jenni Bowlin tag attached with some twine. I am really pleased with how this turned out.

This was a special order for a 50th Birthday. I used a Pink Petticoat image ( and added loads of flowers and gems, along with Doodlebug letters for the name. I used a Craftwork Cards greeting and some co-ordinating ribbon.

This card was for a girlie girl.... think it works! Love this image from Tiddly Inks. ( I coloured it with Promarkers and added the obligatory gems and ribbon! The Spellbinders nestie hearts, letters and the age were added to make the card unique for Holly.

This is a lovely big card for our lovely neighbours son who gets married in the Summer (Told you I was getting on top of orders!!) They are getting married on the beach so I used the sea and colours of the beach for inspiration. I even added some lovely die cut shells from Marianne Design and loads of pearls. The resin flowers and bird complete the card.  

Well that's all for now - I do still make Monkeys!! Pictures of them soon. (:(|)x

A new Hut home for the Monkeys! (:(|)x


Well been a massive few weeks here at the hut.... NEWS FLASH... the hut is getting a new home!
We have had an offer accepted on the house we want to buy and so put our house up for sale only to sell it before the For Sale board even went up... So I'm sharing the brochure with you as no-one got to see all the hard work we put into making the house look good!

Now the hard work starts in packing up and starting all over again in a new home which needs lots of love and attention. There might not be much productivity for the Hut for a little while as a result but have got a few orders to do so will make sure I share the pictures with you.

Check back with you soon, (:(|)x
