I am in love with your Frida Kahlo sock monkey! Is there any chance of me being able to buy the little guy (or one like him) off of you? Honestly, in love.
Hi there. I am currently studying in Cape town, I am doing an article for my magazine on craftivism and I need example images to support. How do I get into contact with your wonderful organisation this side??
Send me an email email@example.com! Would love to provide you with images!
