Bloggy Creative Space

You have probably figured out that the Whangarei Bloggers are pretty special girls and I am SOOO blessed to have met them...and to me they are not just bloggers, they are real life beautiful friends.

Today some of us got together for a little Monkey Business!!
 I started making monkeys a while back  here and here. Which sparked the interest in my bloggy real life friends wanting to create some too.
You can check out these gorgeous girls blogs too... Jacksta, Tracy, PJ, Becky and Renette!!!

The lovely Jacksta invited us to her house, where she baked a delicious cheesecake, that I looked at longingly....drool drool... and she made some yummy gluten free, dairy and egg free jam tarts, oh so spoilt!


Becky and Tracy and Miss E enjoying the yummy cheesecake
We ate and chatted....


Then got down to some serious monkey business


Jacksta rocked her new sewing machine (read more about it here)... look at that excitement!!


Then a bit of handsewing...

And the finished result!


Can't wait to see more of these monkeys! 

Have you made a monkey? do you want to?
Come back and I'll put together a tutorial and a linky so we can share our Monkey business!!!
