                                        The exact time I left my Snow Monster....

My Pals and I have had another busy week which started with some of them going off with my friend Miryam to a craft fair in the Scottish Mining Museum in Newtongrange. Thankyou to everyone who bought a SockPal there.

We are preparing this morning for another Christmas Fair in Haddington tonight at St. Marys Primary School.

We've also been really busy making up lots of custom orders this week. A few photos below...


..... Lots of happy SockPal customers :O)

 We've also been planning a giveaway this week over on Facebook. My Snow Monster Pal is about to have a game of hide and seek in North Berwick today. He is extremely excited!!!

Why not take a look at my Facebook page and see if know where he is hiding...

...another busy week...

... and another week passes! My poor blog is the thing that gets neglected when there is so much to do and so little time...

My Pals and I have had another busy week. We've been working on custom orders and a few new Pals have been added to our Folksy shop.

We are still spending rather a lot of  time on facebook but we love meeting all the friendly, talented, interesting people out there. SockPals now has an amazing 250 Likers!!!

A Monster Week!!!

We've had a real monster week here at Sock Pals. Here's a little update.

It's been Halloween!!! as if you didn't know that already. Lots of dressing up, telling jokes and guising. GREAT FUN!!!

My two Monster Sock Pals were both found..... well done Bruce and Harry. I hope you take good care of them and you have lots of wonderful adventures together.

My Folksy Friday theme this week is MoNsTeRs. Hope you have had a wee look. My daughter chose them this week. She has got good taste :)

Then to finish my week off I spent some time today at Loretto teaching a class how to make their very own Sock Pal monsters.

Here are some photos of the results. I think they're fabulous, they all worked very hard, what do you think?
