I love my monkies.  For those of you who do not know me I have an affinity for the slightly odd.  Especially when it comes to decorating.  I have a monkey chandalier.  We had it in out house in Cincinnati and I insisted on bringing it with us on our move.  I loved this paper collection the minute I saw it.  I taught this class at Mega Meet in Michigan a few years ago and I also had it picked up for publication in an Australian magazine.  I mailed it out about 8 months ago and it has yet to be published.  Guess it is just one of those things that will happen when it happens. 

 I would love a nice monkey stamp.  Know of one?  If so send me a link. 

 I have found a few new blogs that I absolutely love.  I need to find them again and add some links to the side.  Do you have any favorites?  Share if you do.
