It’s Nearly New Year…

…So that means it’s nearly time for a new Beastie Calendar!

Now, I have to admit that 2021 and I haven’t always seen eye-to-eye. It’s even possible that I might do a little dance at midnight tomorrow when this year finally melts away into history! And one of the key features of 2021 has been a lack of opportunities to put together fun photos of Beasties gadding about in the world – the kind of photos that make for a decent Beastie Calendar.

However, that translates to a win for all of you! Since there are no new pictures, this year’s calendar is FREE! Grab yours here:

The icons in the bar along the top will let you print or download your copy… Or, if you don’t see those, click the two arrows in the top right hand corner to bring up the menu. And most importantly, have fun filling your days with plans, adventures and memories!

Here’s wishing you a happy new year, and all good things in 2022. And if you’ve any cool stuff waiting for you in the coming months, be sure to tell us about it in the comments!

Just A Quickie…

Oh wow, it’s all been a bit nuts here at Beastie Towers lately! I’ve been working my way through the veritable avalanche of special Beastie requests that came in while Explorer Beastie and I were away in Germany… And while that’s been fun, it doesn’t exactly make for an exciting blog post. Buuuut we did just have time to put together an August calendar page for you, and it’s available to download now!

Looking back through all of our holiday photos did give me a good dollop of inspiration… It was even quite a challenge to whittle down the main contenders to choose just one!

In the end, though, I just had to go for this!
The Cricket Meadow - CrawCrafts BeastiesI can almost smell the scent of sun-warmed grass and hear the singing of grasshoppers every time I look at this picture… So I thought it would be the perfect image to see us all through to the end of the summer.

You can grab your downloadable version of the August calendar page on our website store now… And as usual, the only information you need to provide to place your order is your name and an email address!

Phew! And now, the whirl of summer activity continues… One of my best friends from school is getting married TOMORROW! So I’ll be taking a couple of days away from the internet to help her celebrate her big day. Then it’ll be BeastieBlog business as usual next Tuesday, when we return with more monster antics.

See you then!

A Monster New Year To You All!

Happy new year, everybody!

2017 was a pretty exciting year here at Beastie Towers – check out the review post I did a couple of weeks back, and you’ll see what I mean! I’m hoping there’s even more good stuff around the corner in 2018 for us, and for all of you out there too. It’s been great having you along for the ride over the past 12 months, and I can’t wait to see where the new year takes us all!

Oh, and if, like me, your life was teetering on the brink of complete chaos because I didn’t make a Beastie calendar this year, fear not! I’ve a new year’s gift for you all… Get thee to the Shop section of my website, where you’ll find a free downloadable calendar page to help you stay organised for the whole of January. To get yours, just add it to your cart… and don’t worry about filling out the whole “address details” form! You only need to enter your name and email address, then you’ll be able to download the page directly from the confirmation email you’ll receive shortly afterwards. After that, print it out… aaaand it’s up to you! Stick it on the wall, pop it on the fridge, tuck it into the pages of your bullet journal – wherever you like, really!
Calendar Page January - Paddy and Plunkett - Printable - CrawCrafts BeastiesBig thanks to both Tammie and Jan for suggesting this idea! I’m hoping that those of you who (like me) still find that nothing really gets sorted out unless pen and paper are involved will find this useful. And hey, let me know where yours ends up… especially if you find an unusual place to display it!

The BeastieBlog returns to normal next Tuesday (that’s the 9th of January), when I’ll be starting to share the first of the Christmas gift commissions now that all the presents have been opened and no surprises will be spoiled!

See you then, and all the best to all of you for 2018. Happy new year!
