Crying at Target

When I saw this post on Amy's blog, I had an urge to rush over to Target to get some new slippers. I was very strong though, I waited a whole day before heading out this morning for my monkeys. I went straight to the shoes, no monkeys. Looked around the Nick & Nora monkey pajamas, no slippers. Browsed the socks and finally came across these:

And right next to them, a very large area of empty space with lots of sock monkey slippers price tags. I was strong though, I didn't cry. Instead I took my little mary janes and was on my way. To tell you the truth, I prefer this style anyway, and they're in one of my favorite color combos. I'm not saying I won't get the slippers when they're in stock, I'm just happy with what I have. And on a side note, after living in the UK for a year I feel like a real dork in white socks. I rarely wear them now. Funny, huh?
As for crafting, I added a new Julie Bag to my collection last week. I used some more of my Look and Learn fat quarters. It got some views at the market on Sunday, but no takers. I'm really low on Gadget Monkeys these days so I guess that'll be my focus this week. (I finally finished my big custom order last night, yay!
p.s. To answer Jenn's question in her comment. I received thanks and photos for the Star Trek costume from Heck today. Here's what it looked like. He seems happy to me. There are some things I'd do differently if I had to do it again, but I wouldn't do it again. Not for a million dollars.

Those slippers/mary janes are too adorable. I didn't know Target had them!

I love Mary Janes too - although the others are cute. I agree - you may have to have both!


And great job on that costume - I love how you freely admit your feelings about it;)

Cute slippers! And what a hunt you went on!

So you're a sci-fi seamstress too?

Oh my gosh! I can see why you rushed out to buy those slippers. I'm so sorry they were sold out. But the mary janes are definitely cute too!

Your sock slippers are adorable and I love them! Now I'm thinking of running off to Target. I also absolutely love that bag you made and the Star Trek costumes are awesome.

I think I have those sock monkey slippers around here somewhere. Shoved under the basement sofa if I recall. The mary jane sock style is cute too!
