Hello! Happy Monday :)
Or, whatever day you might be reading this :)
As some of you may, or may not know, I have been shipping my monsters to Summit Lodge for a couple of years now. They put them in their rooms, and people can adopt them :) Seriously Awesome! Lorraine (Operations Director) found me on etsy, asked me to try it out, and our relationship has evolved! So many people have visited this hotel, and adopted monsters, which have traveled all around. So, we were lucky enough to catch a quick vaca this year, and visit ourselves!
Whistler is such an awesome place. Reminds me a little of Banff, but BIGGER. I love all the patios, and how outdoorsy it is, as well as the view :) Summit is located on Main Street, in the center of all the awesomeness!
This place has the most adorable details! Firstly, there are sock monsters on their beds ;) The shampoo, conditioner, and soap, not only smells amazing, but it's in these trendy little containers! The rooms are adorable, ipad minis, a little kitchenette, table for dining, and couch for vegging. - Or, sewing sock monsters if you hubby decides to go zip-lining, and there is no way you are going :)
Equipped with a little snack bar. Wine, chips, popcorn. Cute note pads! Cool pens! Even the door knocker made me smile.
Reunited and it feels so good. Sherman was especially ecstatic to meet one of his own. You could tell this little guy was loved, and I felt kinda bad not taking him home! Sherm and him had fun catching up, watching some cartoons, and testing out the Whistler chocolate :)
I could go on and on, but I recommend checking it out for yourself! The view, amazing, the people, awesome. It was so nice to meet Lorraine, and Tony, and we were so thankful they were able to take some time out to chat with us (over an awesome breakfast)! We hope to visit again, and you should too! Check them out HERE.

I think I am on a roll with my blogging, and then nearly a month passes! Summer is flying by so fast! We took a mini vaca to the states and back a couple weeks ago :)
Here Sherman is looking for goats ;) Normally he does not ride shotgun! He of course is belted in, in the back ;)
Our first stop was at Frank Slide. This was pretty crazy to see, little Sherman does not even show close to the depth of disaster that happened here. Sad! And WINDY!
We spent the night at this amazing little B&B called, York Creek, Anne and Ken were the FRIENDLIEST hosts! Go visit them!
And not only were they friendly, Anne is an amazing cook. So again, go and visit them! Next up, Whitefish Montana, I'll post pics this week :) xx

Hello! I am having a little GIVE-AWAY on Instagram :) So, if you are on there, you should check out my feed @stufdmonsters. I also added a slideshow of pics over here --------->
For any of you that aren't :)
Up for grabs is Melly, this fluffy pink monster! Melly is about 8" tall, and is a little shy. She loves ham sandwiches, grape bubblegum, thumb wars, and sheds a little. A lint roller is great to have on hand :) If you LOVE her, and are on instagram, all you have to do is be a follower of stufdmonsters, and comment on Melly's pic! Winner will be drawn on Sunday (July 26th).
Good Luck! xx

Argyle sweaters are my FAVE. And this 3D guy was also a fave. I haven't ever made one all attached in one piece like Rexy (my nickname for him). He would stand on his own, was extra hugable, and I wanted to keep him.. what's new. He has since been adopted, but I'm sure he is loving his new sunny surroundings, while armed with ant spray.
Yes, he hates ants. Loves hugs... and Dinosaurs. Well, on the big screen, he doesn't think he would ever want to actually meet one, not the bird ones anyhow. Dinosour's though, best candy eva!
To show how awesomely BIG he is, here he is pictured with his friend Ferl. Ferl was a little afraid of him, then they shared a grilled cheese, and bff's they became :)

Hello! Happy July :)
Markets are one of my fave things in the summer. Unfortunately I haven't been able to stock enough monsters to sell at a market, but we still enjoy touring the Red Deer Farmers Market most Saturdays. I have signed up for one Sale this year, in Calgary in September, I will post more on that soon!
It's been SUPER HOT in Alberta. Like, take to the basement and hibernate hot. Sherman has been keeping cool though ;)
Sewing newbies nearly every day. Summit Lodge is still adopting monsters, which again, has been so awesome. I've had great feedback from all over the world! I've been trying to post more on instagram, so if you want to follow, look up "stufdmonsters".
Hope you're having an awesome summer! I am sure Sherman will be up to some new adventures soon, will post pics ;)
