Hello there everyone! You know, after writing up Paddy and Plunkett's garden adventure in last week's post, I started thinking about how being outdoors is one thing that the pandemic hasn't really been able to affect that much. In fact, if anything, we're all outside a lot more than we might have been in a … Continue reading Beasties in the Great Outdoors
We haven't seen Explorer Beastie in a while, have we? Well, this might explain why... With Hallowe'en looming, he has been watching A LOT of horror films.

So when I suggested we take a trip to Dublin's spookiest park, he was more than … Continue reading Vampires, Monsters and… A Graveyard Park?

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
Hey there everybody! How are you all keeping? I've been knitting and sewing like a fiend these past few days, so it's kinda nice to take a break and have a chat with you all.

Hello there Beastie friends! Apologies if I'm a little later than usual - today I ventured out of the Beastie Towers isolation bubble to get groceries and that takes a whole lot longer than it used to!
