Traveling Monkey Designs was originally created after our daughter was born. I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mom but was going stir crazy without something to do for myself. We are a military family, so we move often. Creating my business gave me the freedom to express myself through my work while helping with the household income as well. I love what I do. When I originally opened I made baby wearing accessories and have progressed into other items that give me even more creative freedom.
My business name was chosen because we are constantly "Traveling" to new areas with all the moves we make in the military. Our daughter used to love being worn and I called her my "Monkey". the nickname is still there even if she doesnt want to be in a carrier anymore. I also "Design" different aspects in each of my pieces depending on the item. My family's support while I chase this dream has been and continues to be amazing and I'm so blessed to have them.
