Meet Cookie Beastie - CrawCrafts Beasties

Hooray! The Sun’s Out!

Look, everyone! The Irish summer has made a surprise reappearance!

So I thought today’s new Beastie should have his photo taken in the luxuriant(ish) gardens of Beastie Towers. I’m pleased to introduce you to Cookie Beastie, who is outside enjoying his favourite treat in the lovely warm sunshine.
Welcome, Cookie Beastie! CrawCrafts BeastiesBut picnicking alone isn’t much fun…

Beasties in the Garden - CrawCrafts BeastiesMuch better. But of course, it didn’t take much time for these mischievous monsters to start running riot among the plants! Maybe they had too much beer… or fizzy pop!
Red Lemonade Beastie and Pint Beastie - CrawCrafts BeastiesUm, how exactly DO you climb a plant whilst holding a full pint of Guinness?
Pint Beastie - not a drop spilled! CrawCrafts BeastiesBut not everyone was clambering through the undergrowth. Cheerleader Beastie was eager to practice a couple of new moves…

Spot the Beastie! CrawCrafts BeastiesStill, I managed to lure them home by promising a market trip this weekend… our first of the year! We’ll be at our old stomping ground, The Ha’Penny Market at The Grand Social on Liffey Street, from 12-6 on Saturday. So if you’re in Dublin (or even if you’re not – take a day trip!) stop by and see us. We’d love to meet you!

Gimme a “B”…

Cheerleader Beastie

Hooray! It’s time for some new Beasties!

The latest arrival at Beastie Towers is Cheerleader Beastie, a bubbly little monster who is sure to win herself more than a few fans! Check out her cute hand-stitched felt uniform, complete with Team Beastie logo…

…Bouncy blonde ponytail…

…And of course, a set of pure wool pompoms!

While Cheerleader Beastie entertains the crowds with feats of gymnastic skill that should be beyond the capabilities of her short little woolly legs, this more contemplative Beastie has taken up residence in a quiet corner… Meet Artist Beastie!

Artist Beastie likes nothing more than donning his smock, grabbing his palette…

…And painting to his heart’s content! With his exuberant moustache and classic black beret, he certainly looks the part…

…Although it seems to me that more paint goes on his smock than the canvas.

Luckily for him, that smock is removable…

…So he can take it off and relax at the end of a hard day’s work!

I haven’t quite managed to convince him to put his paintbrush down, though.

These Beasties have just joined their friends down in the Creative Collective Shop in Dalkey’s Castle Street… Be sure to drop in and say hello!
