Music boxes for your love

As my Hubby started to make the first music boxes to sell, Valentine's Day was coming up so we decided to make love theme motifs!

I think they turned out beautiful, right?

So we've opened our shops

So I think both of us can say "Thank you" for our little boy because he was our inspiration!

So I've started to make the monkeys and I think I can say, people like them! I don't know whether was the best decision or not, but it certainly was not a bad one!
As I've seen other sellers monkeys are all wearing clothes, I always wanted to give a plus and try to figure out something too, but in the end I've decided that with no clothes on and with the embroidered eyes and mouth, they'll all be suitable for babies as well! And that's how I like them!
I chose not to use the original red hell socks but to go with multicolored socks with dots and stripes!

Here's a few pictures of the first ones I made to sell on etsy!

How the music boxes were born

My Husband, Lotzy was always very handy! He can fix anything around the house and he always wanted to find a hobby, but he wasn't sure what! While I was pregnant, he started to bring home these weird saw things and he said he'll try some woodworking!
I was like okay, let's see how long it's going to last!
And when our son was born, I got the first ever made (by him)  hand crank music box and he put the Melody: "Your Are My Sunshine" in it!


It was so romantic and was so proud of him! Of course I started to show it to my friends and that's how it started! He started to make them to birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries, bar mitzvahs, bridal showers!
So he opened his etsy shop: Simplycoolgifts!

So a friend of mine suggested me we should start blogging to show our work to the world! So here we are! We are a young couple who recently fell in love with crafting!

I opened my sock monkey store a few month ago on!

You can check it out here: socksandmonkeyhugs

They way it started was simple! I have a little boy who is now 21 month old and when I was expecting him, the first thing I bought him was a sock monkey! A regular store bought one! 
It was sitting in his crib waiting for him! 
But my little boy didn't care much about him until he turned 1 year old! That little monkey had to wait almost 18 month little Beni's touch! But one day he woke up, he smiled at the monkey and they became really good friends!
We took Monkey everywhere! So he got dirty often! So I had to wash him often! After a few washes he literally fell apart! 
But I got little Beni a new one but the same thing happened! And then I got frustrated! I googled a sock monkey pattern, bought a few cute pairs of socks and I started to make monkeys for him! He has about 6! He loves all of them but 2 are really special!

Then I started to give them away as birthday gifts to my friends and their kids and everybody loved them!
