Designer Connection: Sock Monkey Blog Hop

Sock Monkey by Laura Bray
It's time for the monthly Designer Connection blog hop and this month's theme is sock monkeys!  Remember the sock monkey I made for my daughter's birthday gift?  And how I had great success because I used When Creativity Knocks' Go BanANAs VideoBook to do it?  Well, the folks at When Creativity Knocks challenged all the designer to make sock monkeys and you aren't going to believe the results!

You also have a chance to win a prize!  Just go to the When Creativity Knocks' website.  There's a Member Log-In Box in the right sidebar.  Click on "Create an account"* and use Entry Code: Sock Monkey.  That's all you have to do for a chance to win this great prize package:

-Sock Monkeys Go BanAnas WCK VideoBook
-One (1) sewn Sock Monkey body ready to be stuffed
-One (1) pair of original Rockford Red Heel Socks

*Signing-up for an account will get you on their mailing list so you can keep up to date on all their latest episodes and crafting advice. In fact, I write a regular column in their newsletter called Mommy & Me, so of course you are going to want to get it anyway, right?

My daughter loves her sock monkey.
