It’s that time again…

Oh, it's snuck up on me (and possibly all of you as well) a bit this year! But with the evenings getting darker, trees suddenly looking bare and the odd set of fairy lights appearing in windows around town, there's no denying it - the end of the year is fast approaching. And that means... … Continue reading It’s that time again…

Tools of the Trade – Monster Maker’s Toolkit

How about I introduce you to the hard-working tools, equipment … Continue reading Tools of the Trade – Monster Maker’s Toolkit

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!

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!
