#marchmeetthemaker day 9: Story behind the name. Hm. Beasties, I guess? My name (Eva Funderburgh) is my name, but I typically refer to my beasts as beasties. The backstory for that is my #woodfire mentor @sauerpottery started calling my monsters “Beasties”, back in 2007, and it stuck. Honestly, I don’t use it as much as I used to since I became friends with @leslielevingsart. She has a series of monsters called “#Beastlies”. When we’re talking about beastlies and beasties in one conversation, things get confusing!
