We've just returned home from quite the power trip. My beautiful niece Kirby got married in Ohio Saturday and though we had neither the time nor money to get there for the celebration somehow we managed to make it. I call it a power trip as we were gone a total of 69 hours. 34 of those hours were spent driving..yikes. Lots of very uncomfortable snoozing.
To make the trip a little more interesting we devised The Great Monster Drop Off. My daughter NoraLeigh I'm proud to say is one of the most creative people I know. She loves to draw, paint and she loves polymer! She makes jewelry, check out her groovy earrings in her Etsy Shop BananaLouisiana
and she makes little monsters. We decided since her little creations are starting to get a bit over populated here at the Loopy House that we would share them with other travelers.
At each stop, be it potty or food, we dropped off a monster with a note. The note told the monsters name and any other pertinent information needed for it's new owner. We would give the monster a kiss and bid him/her farewell knowing he/she was embarking on an adventure all her/his own.
It's fun to imagine who found each monster, the look on their faces or thoughts when they discovered the lil fella, where they took him/her etc.... I personally would love to find monsters in my travels.
The notes left with the monsters were my business cards, oh how we would love it if any of the kind people who decided to take our monsters home and care for them would drop us a note here on my blog or perhaps in my Etsy shop and let us know where he/she has ended up.
We wonder just where our monsters are right now, we hope they are seeing new parts of the world and discovering new adventures!!
