Plunkett, Eden Project Vegetable Garden - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

The View From Outside Eden

Can you believe it? Paddy and Plunkett are still exploring the Eden Project! I always thought that the main draw of this awesome place was the exotic plant communities that live inside the biomes, but WOW was I wrong! It turns out that there's a lot to see outside those bubble-like domes too. And, to … Continue reading The View From Outside Eden

Sunday Morning in the Park - CrawCrafts Beasties

Saturday Slip-Up #1

OOOOOOPS! Oh, it's been a busy old week here in Beastie Towers! In fact, it's been a busy month... And yesterday I kinda ran out of hours in the day, and kinda didn't have time to post anything. Ah well, sometimes these things happen. And the upside of all this frenzied activity is that you … Continue reading Saturday Slip-Up #1

(B)East of Eden 2 – Another Level!

Hello there Beastiebuddies! We're heading back to Cornwall this week, to rejoin Paddy and Plunkett as they make their way to the very top of the 50m tall Rainforest Biome at the Eden Project...

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!

Paddy and Plunkett – A RAIL Good Time!

Well, these two certainly don't hang around in one place for very long! After exhausting the entertainment possibilities of their own attic a couple of weeks ago, Paddy and Plunkett decided that the time was right to hit the road again. Next thing I knew, they were sending me pictures from Devon, in south-west England! … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett – A RAIL Good Time!

Unicorn Beastie by CrawCrafts Beasties - Beastie HQ Shop

A Magical, Mythical Monster!

Finally! I've stumbled on proof that unicorns are in fact real! Except maybe they look a little different to what popular culture and centuries of mythologising might have led us to believe... Perhaps they look a little Beastie-er! Hey there, Unicorn Beastie! This sweet little monster maiden kinda knows that she's special. I mean, look … Continue reading A Magical, Mythical Monster!
