Just Monkeying Around

I craft in class. It’s fact, and it’s also a nice ice-breaker, because (so far) no one in my classes have any idea what I’m doing (NEITHER DO I).

Last week, one of my classmates asked me what kinds of animals I could make. I haven’t yet encountered an animal that wasn’t on the internet already, so I told him that I could make pretty much anything. He then asked me to make him a monkey, which I have now done.

I’ve got to tell you, it was immensely satisfying to see a full grown man light up over a stuffed animal.
