kate5kiwis: Squaddly Oddly Rocks Our Socks!!!!!


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Squaddly Oddly Rocks Our Socks!!!!!

meet Squaddly Oddly,
the first Sock Monster
to be created around these parts.
yes, that's right -
as he's affectionately nicknamed,
was concocted from two tortured old rugby socks, a couple of buttons, and an old tie by S11 and me during a few crafty moments last night. We followed the destructions for Owlsley,
who's the brainchild of John Murphy of Stupid Sock Creatures. this guy is hilarious - unbelievably crafty-kid-and-mummy friendly.
we had such a blast making Squadle, and are rather startled by his acrobatics, smoochy lips and all-round goofiness. we think he's a great match for S11.

(we're totally smitten by these easy peasy oh! so instantly made Sock Monsters - BEWARE - there are no safe places for socks to hide!!!)

If there are no safe places for socks to hide, can you tell me where they go when I dry a load of them, and some always disappear?

That Squaddley is a fine looking fellow. Does he have a mate? (Heehee.)

they are so awesome
squaddley oddly... hmm. i'm strangely reminded of my father. perhaps because mum insists on calling him Oddles all the time. I think the mental connection was
Todd > Odd > Oddly > Oddles.
Toad fits in there somewhere too. And Baldy. ahaha.
