Hi there everyone! I have to say, it's not really hiking weather out there today... But I'm sure the new Beastie we're about to meet would happily give it a try anyway. After all, I did kit her out with everything she could possibly need for a day of strolling in the hills! So, say … Continue reading Beasties Hiking to New Heights
Hey there everyone! Wow, it's been a busy week - with a bit more freedom to move around, I've finally had the chance to catch up with my human family for the first time in months. I've also started teaching knitting classes again, so it's really been quite a sociable few days! Anyway, all this … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Signs of the Times!
No, not my sixteenth birthday! That's longer ago than I'd even care to think about, thank you very much. This post is actually about a very special creation for a customer who needed a unique, personal gift for her just-turning-sixteeen goddaughter. What better way to celebrate this important milestone than with a customised Beastie? Let's … Continue reading Beastie Sixteenth Birthday!
Hey there everyone! Summer has returned to Dublin - I think temperatures climbed to their highest heights of the year so far yesterday! And that's got me in a holiday sort of mood... So I thought I might use this week's Flashback Friday to revisit some of my favourite "Beasties on tour" moments. Hopefully it … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Beasties on Holiday!

After planting courgette seeds a few weeks ago, Paddy and Plunkett are back out in the garden... And, unsurprisingly, they're on the lookout for some lunch. "Look, … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett – Harvest Time!
Hello everyone! I've something a little different for you this Flashback Friday - a retrospective of Beastie sketches, or "Sketch-rospective", if you will! It occurred to me recently that the sketches I draw for custom Beasties very rarely see the light of day. I do them, I send them to the customer, we finesse the … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Beastie Sketches
Hey there everybody! You know, after Friday's post on Beastie work accessories, and reading about Tierney's recent studio update (seriously, take a look! I have such storage envy) I thought I'd do something a little different this week. So, let's have a rare behind-the-scenes post... 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! And since Ireland is very slowly starting to head back to work, I thought I'd devote today's Flashback Friday to some of the "tools … Continue reading Flashback Friday – All In A Day’s Work!
Hey there everybody! Today we're catching up with June Beastie again as she continues her journey to her new home. It's been quite the adventure, starting way back here! And, in case you missed it, there was a more recent update last week... Which attracted a few interested non-human readers. "Hey Plunkett, what are you... … Continue reading Happy New Home, June Beastie!
Hello Beastie friends! Is it really Friday again already? And what's with all this talk about the seaside? Well, this week for Flashback Friday I wanted to revisit a little lady monster from back in 2016 - hey there, Mermaid Beastie! But her fishy tail... ... And aquatic-themed accessories... ... Made me realise that it's … Continue reading Flashback Friday – Beasties by the Seaside
