Where Does The Time Go?

Grim Reaper Beastie, by CrawCrafts BeastiesWow, even with Grim Reaper Beastie keeping an eye on his hourglass, this year seems to have flown in! And although some people (or monsters) are still taking it easy…
Time for a Rest! CrawCrafts Beasties…Others among us are already thinking ahead to -gulp- the so-called festive season.

Yes, fellow Scrooges all over the world, I am fully aware that it’s not yet October, and that the trees haven’t even started shedding their leaves. I know that we still have Al-Hijra, Rosh Hashanah, Thanksgiving (both Canadian and American), Diwali and Hallowe’en to celebrate before December even begins. But the fact is – and I’m sure many of my fellow crafters will crack a wry smile here – handmade items take time to make, and whether you’re creating a few gifts for friends and family or a whole stall’s worth of goodies, it pays to get cracking on them early. Believe me, the last-minute Holiday Craft Panic is on a par with last-minute shopping, and I have high hopes of avoiding both this year!

So, today I’m going to ask any of you who might be toying with the idea of welcoming a special little monster into your home to get your orders in now, before the madness kicks off! I’ve even managed to persuade Explorer Beastie to pose for a delightful motivational graphic…
Christmas Orders! Place Your Christmas Orders! CrawCrafts BeastiesPlease bear in mind that Bespoke Beastie spots will be limited, and it will be a case of first come, first served. So, if you already have an idea, let’s get started! Drop me a line and I’ll begin sketching up your design ASAP.

And if this is all too much, too soon, don’t worry! You’ll still be able to grab yourself a monster friend from our Etsy store, or at one of the many markets I plan to squeeze in between now and the end of the year.

Alrighty, I’d better get back to my knitting! I’m hoping to have the first of my Famous Monsters Beasties ready to share with you next Tuesday…

In the meantime, have a monster weekend!

  1. Very wise to get underway with Christmas production early. And don’t worry, you aren’t the only one! A certain sofa company is promising delivery before 25th December if you order now – and they’re not even doing craft markets as well!

  2. I have been crocheting Christmas tree ornaments for a couple of days now … even though I don’t feel christmassy at all. 🙂 (Christmas cookies would help the case) 😀

      1. That sounds fun … I can see it before my eyes: The monster maker and the beasties in front of the tv watching horror movies and drinking (felted) beverages. 😀
