Heaven... I'm in Heaven...

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

Attention everyone! I am SOOO excited!!! I just have to tell all my bloggy friends what I'm excited about! :) At the end of July, I stumbled upon this awesome blog, called Craft Hope. If you've never heard of it, you have to check out their site! I think what they are doing is so great! Every month or so, they have a new craft project, and a group of people make some lovely handmade crafts to share with others less fortunate. They've made dresses out of pillowcases for orphaned children in Brazil and Mexico, dolls for orphaned children in Nicaragua, and blankets, booties and beanies for orphaned newborns in India. By the time I found out about this awesome website and this amazing group of people, I was too late to enter into the 3rd project. Now, the 4th project is here, and due in September... and guess what the project is..? It is something so perfect for me... hence my extreme excitement!!! :)




SOCK MONKEYS! 


OMG! When I saw the project, I almost screamed (but couldn't since my son was napping)! I was jumping up and down all over the house, with a big smile on my face, and laughing on the inside! My heart is so happy! :) I am SO excited to do this project, and it couldn't come at a better time! I was just about to start making a whole bunch of monkeys so I could start up an Etsy store, but I would much rather make a whole bunch of monkeys for these children! The monkeys will be going to burn victim children in California. If you would like to get involved in this amazing project, check out Craft Hope's blog, and join in the fun! :) I might try to post a sock monkey tutorial if anyone is interested in helping out! 

Thanks for sharing in my excitement! :) Now, I'm off to make monkeys... 

By the way... the sock monkey pictured above is on his way to his new home with April! :)

I love sock monkeys. My one sock monkey fell apart, I guess due to my 4 monkeys at home!

Have a great time and post a picture! I'm heading over to the site:)

I think this is a great project for you to undertake. My sis-in-law participates with Craft Hope as well, and she blogs about the stuff she makes for them. I think it's a wonderful way to share love with those less fortunate. Good for you!
