Christmas is a strange time – a veritable Bermuda triangle for thoughts, ideas and good intentions. In all the madness of present-buying, meeting up with friends who were home from overseas, card-making and holding down a job in retail, it seemed that I had hardly any spare minutes to sit down and share my Beastie news. Then it all got lost in a fug of turkey and brandy butter, and further buried as I started formulating all kinds of madcap monster schemes for the new year ahead.
But today, I took some time to go through the photos in my camera and I found these pictures. I realised that I’d never had a chance to introduce you all to Artist Girl Beastie, because she was commissioned as a gift and I didn’t want to accidentally spoil someone’s Christmas morning! So, without further ado… here she is!
Like my other Artist Beasties, she has a felt beret, artist’s palette…
… a paintbrush, and a paint-spattered smock!
But I also thought I would give her a mop of blonde hair (complete with artsy bohemian braids)…
… And a fun polka-dot top to relax in at the end of a hard day’s painting!
In the last couple of days, I’ve delivered two more made-to-order Beasties to their new homes… pictures to follow soon! And in other news, thanks to Roma at Craft Odyssey for nominating me for a Liebster Award – I’ll be sure to answer all her questions and introduce you to some of my favourite blogs in an upcoming post!
Thanks for reading… have a monster week!

She really is gorgeous,your artist beastie 💙💚💛💜
Why thank you! I’m sure she’d approve of your perfectly colour-coordinated hearts… They match her delicate blue skin tone perfectly!
🙂 🙂 🙂
Artist Girl Beastie looks so bohemian, and how cool is her polka dot top I want one for myself 😉
Heehee! Thank you! That polka dot fabric is rather spiffy… It’s a shame the shop where I bought it only sells it as fat quarters for quilting. Perfect for Beastie clothes, a little on the small side for humans!
Aw!! CUTE! I love her 🙂
Thank you! She was a lot of fun to make 🙂 Cheers for dropping in to say hello!
Always a pleasure to come and see you and your beasts 🙂
Shes lovely ,i love her painty dress and brush
Thanks! It was nice to make a lady artist this time around, too… my previous Artist Beasties have all been guys 🙂
I’m sure she made someone smile on Christmas morning.
I certainly hope so! At least she’ll be in good company… there’s already at least one Beastie living in her new home 🙂
So cute! I love this one!
Thank you! She’s really been the surprise hit of the year so far!
