Can you tell how much Sasha enjoys the new Monkey Beanz line?! Here she is in two of the dresses that will be available this summer. She would definitely agree that Monkey Beanz clothes are super comfy and easy to play in and I'll keep putting up previews so you can see how great they look as well!

Back in Maine

Well, we made it back to Maine though not without several bumps along the way! Both girls ended up getting sick during the trip, we spent a week in the hospital and extended our stay for two weeks in order to finish up samples of all the new pieces for the 2008 summer clothing line. We did it though and the clothes are being made as we speak and I am trying to get everything in order on this end for a Monkey Beanz Grand Opening.
Here is a picture of Bee, my husband, working with Nuung, our super talented and amazingly dedicated seamstess in Southern Thailand. We had many, many all day work sessions trying to get the patterns right and testing different stitches and fabrics and everything else. Fortunately for Monkey Beanz, Nuung takes great pride in her work and is not satisfied until she too approves of the final design. Also to our benefit, she has a 6 year old daughter so she and our older daughter were able to entertain themselves for hours despite the lanuage barrier.
