MonkeyShineDesigns2's Shop Announcement

Come visit me on Facebook for pattern giveaways and sales on ready to ship items:

I work as a teacher during the day, so patterns will be emailed when I get home each evening. Thanks for your patience!

In case you're wondering where the name Monkey Shine comes from, it was a nickname my mom called me as a child growing up. It was quite embarrassing as I remember! But after having my own kids, I've realized that the nicknames you give your children are given with much love (even if they are embarrassing for the kid!)

I am a teacher who gets to be a stay-at-home mommy every summer, winter break and spring break. I have a 6-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son. They are the center of my world. I may complain about the messes they make, but I honestly don't know what I would do without them!

I love crocheting and sewing, and hope you love my creations too!
