In our house, we always have a huge pile of odd socks. I’m constantly telling the kids that the sock monster must be taking them :)
It’s been a while since I have done a drawing just for the fun of it, so I sat on the lounge chair with the kids and my sketch book and came up with this.

    Ha Ha! Very cute Dianne. I think that Sock Monster gets around a bit, because he has been to my house too!

  • I think he must be a very busy boy lynda! At least now you know what to look out for :)

    We have one on the loose at our house as well, but until this moment I was unsure as to what one actually looked like.

  • At least now we can all be aware and on the lookout! Not sure if there is just one of him like Santa or if they are in plague proportions :)

    lol….i always suspected he existed. Great drawing Dianne.

  • Thanks Lisa! He’s been out of the spotlight a bit and was getting a bit jealous of all the attention that his distant cousin the boogie man has been getting :)
