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!
… 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!
