#98 - Pugs, & Bunnies, & Monkeys, Oh My!



Hello old friends! We've been so busy knitting and making greeting cards that we haven't had even a few moments to stop and enjoy writing a blog to all of you. We have received e-mails and facebook messages from many of you, and we are happy to hear about all of your adventures over the past few weeks.

We have many exciting new things going on with All You Need Is Pug. First, our adorable friend, Tweedles, gave us the idea to make a sock monkey hat and we decided to play with it and had so much fun. Tweedles is incredibly inspirational and creative. She is a wonderful pug, so be sure to visit her blog and say 'hello'! This is the hat that she helped us to come up with:

It has already become a fan favorite on Etsy and it for sale right now. We also can make it in other colors, so if you want something special, be sure to let us know! We love getting inspiration from all of you.

Our second fun new idea came to us when we were creating items for our other shop, LiteraryLuxe. I was making rabbit brooches, inspired by Alice in Wonderland, when I thought how cute JD would look with big, floppy ears. That's when I knew that I had to make this hat happen. I am very happy about it because it ended up on Etsy's home page 2 days in a row, which brought us many wonderful new fans and friends.


To celebrate and share the excitement that we've had here, we've decided to do a give away this week. We will be raffling off a special surprise. Visit the blog on Wednesday afternoon to find out what the prize will be and to enter to win it!

Hi guys, so good to hear from you. Love all the new things you are creating. Looks like JD likes the sock monkey hat a little better that the bunny one.

Jessica, You are so talented! And so young (I am sure you hate hearing that). I use you as an example all the time as what young people can accomplish if they put their minds to it. The Bunny Hat and the Sock Monkey Hats are truly inspired and fun!
Love Noodles's Mommy #2
PS, I agree in the above fotos JD looks more comfortable in the Sock Monkey Hat. But in the Etsy page he is ROCKIN' the bunny ears.
