About me

A lot of people ask,"Where did the name 15 monkeys come from". I have never been one to sit still and even though I worked a grinding 40-50hrs a week I always got excited to create something. Whether it was a favor for my son's class, a halloween costume or my favorite... a birthday party. Birthdays are my favorite!  I always had a ton of ideas bouncing around in my head of things I wanted to create. I called my ideas my "monkeys". Around the holidays one year I was talking with my younger brother telling him all about my vision of what I wanted. He asked "Do you have a name picked out for your company?" I replied "no" because I want to offer such a variety of things that I can't think of a name that represents everything. At that instance I muttered something regarding my 15 monkeys in my head. He said, "that's it, that's the name of your company". So it came to be. I absolutely love creating things that make a child's day special. I hope you enjoy 15 monkeys as much as I do creating it.
