Crafty Bastards Sell Out!

Well, it didn't rain a bit at the Crafty Bastards Fair (except for our drive there!)
I just wanted to thank everyone who stopped in the booth, and to everyone who adopted a monster that day. The response was awsome, and the emails requesting more monsters has been overwhelming! Right now I'm frantically trying to bear new babies, big monsters, bottomfeeders and pentapods to statisfy the world's monster need, and will do my best to have the site updated before october's end.




















If you want to be updated when the
new monsters are available,
be sure to sign up for the newsletter.
THANKS AGAIN to everyone in DC !
I hope to be there again next year!

Cotton Monsters are coming.....


Well I haven't been posting much because this big new eight-eyed, six tentacled monster has been sitting on me most of the month. Its true, and he's really heavy.










Also, I've been attempting to sew most of my days and not be glued to my computer...so that eventually I will have a well stocked online store and have enough baby monsters to satisfy Washington DC for the Crafty Bastards Festival! Check it out http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/craftybastards/ and you can view all the awsome vendors that will be attending.

Im aiming for a store update next week sometime (I'll probably do it during the day this time)
If you are on our newsletter list, you'll be the first to know! THANKS for waiting!

Happy Monster Independence Day

Happy long weekend to all the monster lovers out there.
Don't forget to include your monster in all the festivities!
But you may want to hide your flags if you don't want them eaten.

Two very loving and proud monster parents just sent me these picks from their vacation, and I have to say, Ms. Rosalita Chiquita Appletina looks to be having about the best time an american monster could have on her summer break.
THanks So much for sharing the love. chomp chomp slurp crunch.
