Yay! This week I received my swap sock monkey from the 6 Degrees of Creativity sock monkey exchange, made and sent by Lisa Miller in San Jose, California. I have adopted the name “Albert” for him, inspired by an exchange Lisa and I had about how the youth she works were able to see her sock monkey in the making and thought he resembled Albert Einstein (!). Thank you Lisa for my new sock monkey friend!
Throughout this week, Albert has been settling into his new surroundings and home, getting acquainted with my other sock monkeys, our three cats, hanging out in my studio/office space a lot, and adjusting to the colder temperatures that come with winter in Ohio.
