Going Bananas for the Circus Monkey

The Full Line of Circus Clown Monkey Goods

It is no secret that I have mad love for all things monkey. I am forever designing new monkey items and I never, ever get tired of them. At least half of my sales are for monkey goods in one design or another. One of my sisters also shares my monkey madness. She even named her business with her monkey love in mind. You can check her out her spectacular art studio here.

I also have an unending adoration of all things circus and carnival. There are many reasons why I love the circus and carnival themed parties and showers. One of them is the use of color and vibrancy. I can literally walk around a carnival for hours just-looking...I find immense beauty in the sights, sounds and smells. Very inspiring.

Another reason that I love the circus and carnival is that my kids adore them. Carnival season is around here is a short flurry of weekend activity and my little boys look forward to each and everyone of them with such joy and anticipation. They mark the calendar. They are good all week so they can go to the Carnival on Saturday. They would sell their prized possessions for a bag of cotton candy.

The Circus Monkey Line was designed with these two great loves in mind. Step right up and enjoy the show!

First Post

So excited to launch my blog. Testing....one, two, three....

About The Purple Pug

Welcome to my shiny, new blog. Not sure where this blogging adventure will take me, but I am excited to find out.

About The
Purple One~
I am the creator and owner of The Purple Pug. I design an extraordinary line of handmade party goods. I love anything and everything involved with the planning, designing and styling of parties and showers. I have a special place in my heart for First Birthdays. I am obsessed with unique party themes and have about a million ideas that I hope to share. I drive myself crazy trying to come up with offbeat, clever ideas..but I wouldn't have it any other way. I worship anything handmade. I am having a love affair with glitter, felt, pom poms and monkeys.

I have the best customers in the world. I am honored when someone chooses me to help them create the perfect party. I hope to share my products, new ideas, fabulous customer photos and maybe provide a little bit of inspiration along the way.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me. Drop me a line with any questions or to say "howdy!"

And...Yes, I really do love Purple.
