Flashback Friday – Signs of the Times!

Hey there everyone! Wow, it's been a busy week - with a bit more freedom to move around, I've finally had the chance to catch up with my human family for the first time in months. I've also started teaching knitting classes again, so it's really been quite a sociable few days! Anyway, all this … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Signs of the Times!

Flashback Friday – Beasties on Holiday!

Hey there everyone! Summer has returned to Dublin - I think temperatures climbed to their highest heights of the year so far yesterday! And that's got me in a holiday sort of mood...

Flashback Friday – Beastie Sketches

Hello everyone! I've something a little different for you this Flashback Friday - a retrospective of Beastie sketches, or "Sketch-rospective", if you will! It occurred to me recently that the sketches I draw for custom Beasties very rarely see the light of day. I do them, I send them to the customer, we finesse the … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Beastie Sketches

Flashback Friday – All In A Day’s Work!

Hey there everyone, and greetings from a slightly grey and showery Dublin! What a strange coincidence that, as life here starts to return to something like normality, the weather follows suit! And since Ireland is very slowly starting to head back to work, I thought I'd devote today's Flashback Friday to some of the "tools … Continue reading Flashback Friday – All In A Day’s Work!

Flashback Friday – Beasties by the Seaside

Hello Beastie friends! Is it really Friday again already? And what's with all this talk about the seaside? Well, this week for Flashback Friday I wanted to revisit a little lady monster from back in 2016 - hey there, Mermaid Beastie! But her fishy tail... ... And aquatic-themed accessories... ... Made me realise that it's … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Beasties by the Seaside

Flashback Friday – Beastie Pets Retrospective

... Or, as first floated in Tuesday's post, it's a Pet-rospective! Beasties love their pets, and at the suggestion of regular reader Queen Bee, I thought it was high time we revisited some of those fuzzy companions from previous commissions. Let's start with the very first one - a woolly old English sheepdog I made … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Beastie Pets Retrospective

Ready for the Garden - CrawCrafts Beasties

Flashback Friday – Gardening Beasties!

Hey there Beastie friends! It's not much of a day for gardening in Dublin today... We're in the throes of Tropical Storm Arthur (somehow! Tropical storms in Ireland? Really?) and it's freakishly windy outside. But we can still look back at some plant-happy Beasties from 2018, right? This happy horticultural pair were created for Jan … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Gardening Beasties!

Blooming Beasties!

May started this week... and that also heralds the traditional start of summer in Ireland! Now, the weather never feels truly summery until we hit June, but you can't argue with tradition, can you? And this idea goes way back - the Celtic festival of Beltane falls at around this time each year, signalling that … Continue reading Blooming Beasties!
