Happy 6th Birthday to us!!!

CHI_03_RK0020_07_P

We can’t quite believe that it’s our 6th birthday and we’re feeling ever so grown up!

In terms of birthday gifts, we’re fairly low maintenance. We don’t require new bikes or musical princess castles. We don’t even want a cake*. All we want is to see the happy smiley faces of our lovely customers who continue to visit and support Crafty Monkey. Without you lot, we obviously wouldn’t be here celebrating our 6th birthday and we’re sending you lots of love (even though it’s our birthday and it should be the other way round, but we’re selfless like that!)

Big thanks to you all…please come by and say hello and wish us many happy returns of the day!

Love from all of the Crafty Monkeys XXX

*This is a fib- we do want cake. Please bring us cake…

 

 

Proposing with pottery: ‘bowl’ em over!’ – 20th March

will you marry me

We’re all big slushy softies at Crafty Monkey and love nothing more than a spot of romance! That said, there’s nothing more fitting that the fact that it’s ‘World Proposal Day’ to make us gush and get all silly.

We’re fortunate enough to have been party to several marriage proposals…sadly enough nobody has asked to us come along to a romantic dinner and jump out of a giant cake with an engagement ring, however, we have commissioned a few of pieces of pottery for customers who wanted to pop the question via a plate or a bowl decorated by our own fair hands! We’ve also had a fair few people create their own ‘pottery proposal pieces’.

Happily, if you wish to propose to your other half, you’re not restricted to one day of the year, but it’s a lovely sentiment to celebrate that special date annually.

If you’ve got any proposal stories, from slushy to outrageous- do share them with us on our Facebook page as we love to hear about a happy ending!

Almost time for Easter!

Hooray! It’s almost time for the Easter holidays and we’re as excited as ever about the prospect of our chocolate eggs!

We’re sure that you too are fulls of the joys of spring about the Easter celebrations and all that they entail- including a couple of weeks with the children at home! Well, we can’t predict what the weather will be like, but whatever the weather, our doors are always open at Crafty Monkey for fun filled crafts!

We’ve got plenty of Easter themed stock in including pottery bunnies, chicks and egg cups that are currently sitting waiting to be painted or have brightly coloured foam clay squashed over them! Or why not come and rescue one of our lovely rabbits from the Build a Bear range and fill it with love (or stuffing!).

Whatever you decide to do, be sure to call us to book in because as ever, we’ll be busy with people getting their fill of Easter craft fun! Call us on 01480 219222
