Arts? Science? Why Choose?

Hey there Beastie friends! I hope you all had a super weekend… Especially any of you who were celebrating St Patrick’s Day on Saturday! Today on the BeastieBlog, we’re weighing in on an issue that has been troubling humans for centuries – the ongoing battle between the arts and the sciences. And is it really… Read More

Friday Social #2

Hello everybody, and happy Friday to you all! It’s been all go here in Beastie Towers. Earlier in the week, I had a birthday… I was *cough* 29! (Again) And I hope none of you are hungry, because I celebrated with THESE. Thanks, Boyfriend! Did someone say “birthday doughnuts”? Oooh, go on then! 😋 @OffbeatDonuts… Read More

Off the Rails with Paddy and Plunkett!

Or rather on the rails, because the boys recently took a road trip… By train! Their first port of call after leaving home was (of course) a quick tea break in Belfast. You can’t go adventuring without fuelling up first! They found a nice spot where they could look out at the City Hall, and… Read More

Friday Social #1

Ooooh, it’s been a while since I posted on a Friday! But after my lazy sick day post a couple of weeks ago, I thought I might give you all a more regular behind-the-scenes look at life in Beastie Towers, and share some of the antics that the rest of the global Beastie family have… Read More

New Beastie Time? Sign Me Up!

I’ve really been spoiling you all with the new Beasties lately. And look, here’s another one… The first official Beastie commission of 2018! This fuzzy little fellow was specially created for Stephen, who recently celebrated his third birthday, and whose favourite thing is… Road signs! Turns out there’s a bit of a gap in the… Read More

A Picture-Perfect Beastie!

Back to the Wild North West!

Explorer Beastie’s been a bit quiet lately, hasn’t he? But he always likes to take advantage of the post-Christmas lull to do a spot of out-of-town adventuring, and last week found both of us up in Donegal again, treading a slightly different path from the one we took this time last year. Actually, this breaking… Read More

A Bewitching Beastie!

Hello there everybody! Today seems like a fitting day to share the last of my pre-Christmas commissions with you, since I’m looking out my window and watching the ground being slowly covered with a dusting of snow and hail! It seems we might have a bit of a way to go yet until Spring starts… Read More

New Frontiers For Explorer Beasties!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! And, after a brief wintry wander with Paddy and Plunkett last week, we’re going to dip back into the pile of pre-Christmas commissions, and meet another new Beastie! So, you all know Explorer Beastie, right? …And some of you might remember a few variations on the theme over the last couple of… Read More

Chillin’ With Paddy and Plunkett!

There’s been some pretty chilly weather in Ireland and the UK this past week or so… And much as I love snow, I’m glad we just got a brief flurry here in Dublin last Tuesday, rather than the full-blown blizzard that hit Scotland and the north of England! But the plummeting temperatures reminded Paddy and… Read More
