About Galarples

Sales 4,589
On Etsy since 2011

The goal at the Galarple Workshop is to bring you a silly friend and a constant smile.

So Galarples. A silly name and a fun story.

I am thrifty by nature. I love to save a buck any time I can. I love thrift stores and yard sales.. oh yes. I am there. Many moons ago a lady online had these handmade items that my daughter just loved, and asked me to buy. I was flabbergasted at how much they cost and how hard they were to purchase. These little guys sold out so fast! I decided then I needed to crochet. I taught myself; hours and hours of getting frustrated looking at crochet patterns with no clue as to what I was doing. oh it was painful. one day I whipped up my very first round object and dubbed it (with the help of a friend) "Galarple!" it wasn't pretty. It really wasn't even round. But it was. I had created something. Look at me go.
I continued spitting out "round-ish" object over the years, until I had a pattern of my own to follow. And most of the time, now, I can make what I hope for. The secret is... can I do it twice?
The Galarples have evolved from just being simple round monsters, to creatures, with life of their own. They have personality and names. Some are one of a kind, some stay around forever. They have become party favors, stocking stuffers, and life long friends.
Every little guy Is made with love and care. I package them carefully and tearfully bid them adieu with the begin their journeys into the unknown. I hope that you love your new friends as much as I do!
What does the future hold for the Galarple? I guess we'll all just have to wait and see. :)
Thank you so much for your interest in my fun little friends!

    I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom. My daughter is the reason these little guys came to be. I love Jesus first, gluten free cooking, hiking in the PNW and just finding those moments to be carefree and silly!

  • The Darb-inator

    Distractor, Trainer Of Padawan Puppy

    Darby is always present but usually not too helpful, I'm afraid. She does often ask me to throw the ball or snuggle whilst Galarple making.. Which can delay the production process. She is only the cutest Border Collie ever.. So I don't mind delaying!

  • The daughter

    Inspire-er, Silliness Adder, Wearer Of Fun Hats

    Whenever I feel stuck, or uninspired in the creative process this little girl gets me going. She helps decide on names, colors, and festive additives to make each Galarple the perfect to to own. I couldn't do this without her!

  • Sully Boy

    Galarple Sniffer, Snuggly Cuddler

    This little pup has wormed his way deep in our hearts after only a few weeks! He has a constant outpouring of love and joy and it makes creating a new Galarple so hard when you have a fluffy snuggle pup trying to get into your lap. :-)
