Twain Tuesday


This morning at Le Monkey House we came in ready to work! Coffee in hand, Monday blues in our rear view, we were ready to conquer this social networking “thing”. What actually happened? We ended up reading Mark Twain quotes for about an hour. There are far too many to clever quotes by Twain to get into. (“Ain’t nobody got time for that!”) Since we decided to dedicate our Tuesday to all things Twain we will take the time to list off our favorite things about Marky Mark. (no, not Mark Wahlberg, sorry ladies)

– His huge mustache – pulling it off.

– How he was born in Florida……Missouri – tricky.

– He had three awesome patented inventions: 1) Improvement in Adjustable and Detachable Straps for Garments – which replaced suspenders   2) A history trivia game – who doesn’t love trivia?  3)  The self-pasting scrapbook

– He was neighbors with Harriet Beecher Stowe – what is in that water?!

– Oh, and then there is all that writing he did…

Thanks Mr. Twain , this ones for you!!                                                      97n/24/huty/7252/18instagramTWAIN

We Are Growing!

August, Design Studio, LeMonkey House, Uncategorized

Today we have been working on getting our wholesale packets together! We would love to start reaching out to wholesalers to feature LeMonkey House designs in their boutiques and shops, so we are getting prepared! There is a lot to be added to our website (more than we originally had thought!) and we are making sure everything we (and you) need will be available very soon. Between the research, typing, and technicalities I would say we pretty much have this stuff down and will be ready in no time to continue the advancement of LeMonkey House designs! We are so excited to start news things and we are well on our way with the addition of our large format printer and wholesaler outreach. We would like to thank everyone who already supports LeMonkey House and Chikpea Graphics and we hope you will continue to love our work and support us down the road. This business will continue to grow and I’m sure there will be many more surprises to come. You will not be disappointed!

Saturday Morning

August, LeMonkey House, Uncategorized

Great news! This past Saturday morning we sold seven Outer Banks Neighborhoods posters on our Etsy page! Each one was purchased by a different person and we thought it was something special we would share with you! (A copy of the poster is shown below). We are just so happy that people are falling in love with these designs because they really express such creativity and joy in our eyes. Keep ordering your own copies of LeMonkey House posters!
