The world needs more sock monkeys. There. I said it. There’s much to be said about taking something as old and inanimate as a sock and breathing life into it in the crafting process. Slovenia-based Cardboard Castle definitely has a knack for just that. Pictured above is Salvator, one of the crew of “models of sustainability” made from recycled materials. Don’t you just want to hug him? Pictured below are Zora, Handsome Stan, and Anabel.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.

    Can I buy a little monkey like that from you? My daughter loves Sleeppy Salvator.
