Okay, I know that it has been AGES since my last blog - yes I have been slack!! I started making soctk monkeys before christmas and they have just gone nuts, I was absolutely gobsmacked with how popular they were. So everything else took a backseat (yes, you should have seen my house!!!) and I was flat out making monkeys! I am so thankful to everyone who has ordered one from me and I love making them and now I am trying different animals which I am hoping to have for sale later this year.
Over the past week, as with the rest of the world, I have been absolutely devastated by the footage of the floods in Queensland. What a horrific and terrifying experience that so many people have suffered and my heart and prayers are with the victims and their families. It is so important that those of us who haven't been affected by these floods do all we can to help and what is needed most now is donations to the Queensland Flood Appeal.
I want to do everything I can to help and to encourage othes to do the same, so I am going to offer a GIVEAWAY through my blog! This is a giveaway with a twist, for anyone that makes a $5 donation to the appeal, leave a comment with your receipt number and you will go into a random draw for a large rainbow sock monkey! You can enter as many times as you make an extra donation.
Here is the link to the appeal: http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/
Please give all you can, the recovery process in queensland is going to be a long hard journey and they need all the assistance they can!
I will be doing the random draw on Friday 20 January at 8pm so be sure to get your entry in before then.
