On the Road with Explorer Beastie - CrawCrafts Beasties

Riverboats, Railways and Falling Elephants

Hello there Beastie friends! I'm working on some new monster projects which need to remain a closely-guarded secret for the moment... So I thought we'd switch up the posting schedule from the last couple of weeks. Let's catch up with Explorer Beastie's progress through Germany... And as you can perhaps tell from the unusual title, … Continue reading Riverboats, Railways and Falling Elephants

Prickly Situation for Explorer Beastie at Aquazoo - CrawCrafts Beasties, Beastie HQ

Beasties of the Deep!

Happy Friday, everyone! And with the high temperatures continuing, and still no sign of rain for us here in the Emerald Isle, a cooling dip in the sea might be just what we need... So isn't it lucky that when we left Explorer Beastie last week, he was just about to venture inside Düsseldorf's Aquazoo? … Continue reading Beasties of the Deep!

A Beastie Gathering! May Update, Beastie HQ - CrawCrafts Beasties

The End of Mad May!

I might have mentioned it already (once or twice) but May has been a SUPER-busy month here at Beastie Towers! With multiple commissions on the go, our stint at Woollinn last week, and a bit of extra time spent at our local yarn shop, it's a miracle I've had time for anything else! But May … Continue reading The End of Mad May!

Explorer Beastie by the Sea, Fanad Head - CrawCrafts Beasties

Back to the Wild North West!

Explorer Beastie's been a bit quiet lately, hasn't he? But he always likes to take advantage of the post-Christmas lull to do a spot of out-of-town adventuring, and last week found both of us up in Donegal again, treading a slightly different path from the one we took this time last year. Actually, this breaking … Continue reading Back to the Wild North West!

The Wild West Coast

It's time to hit the road with Explorer Beastie again! Last time the pair of us were in Donegal (the most north-westerly county in Ireland) we chose to head to its northernmost point.

Cliff Climbs and Fun Times

It's been a while since Explorer Beastie got out anywhere, hasn't it? So, when we were offered the chance to get away for a day and see The Gobbins Cliff Path in beautiful Co. Antrim, we were both pretty excited! We'd heard a lot about this place from other people... and from other Beasties, too. … Continue reading Cliff Climbs and Fun Times
