The Beta Site for Enjoy Malahide was launched recently, http://www.enjoymalahide.com this new site is run in conjunction with the Facebook page www.facebook.com/enjoymalahide which celebrated reaching over 1,100 fans last weekend. On the site and through the facebook page Enjoy Malahide promotes all the events, special offers, amenities and destinations in Malahide, Co. Dublin, Ireland, plus a full FREE listing for all the local businesses and organisations. There are pages dedicated to Malahide Castle, The Beach, Malahide Marina, as well as the pages promoting events, special offers, and things to do in the area.

The sole aim of this site is to improve the profile of Malahide both on-line and to potential visitors from home and abroad as well as acting as a useful reference for locals too. The site is run locally by locals, and a lot of passion and hard work goes into locating and publishing information on local events, businesses and organisations. Within this aim Enjoy Malahide hopes to encourage more events and special offers in Malahide whilst promoting a greater sense of community for both locals and visitors to enjoy. New features will be added to the site all the time, creating new and better ways to promote the Village and the website itself, so it’s a fun project for them to run and a great venture. This project is an exciting new venture by Ambient Project Web Design Dublin, who are using their expertise, local knowledge and spare time to create this fantastic resource for Malahide Village.

Whether you are looking for great shopping, tasty food in a wide range of fantastic restaurants, great nights out in bars or general fun and games on the beach or at the castle for the family, Malahide has it all, and its all there for you on one handy site http://www.enjoymalahide.com

Beaverbear gets a sweet review!

So as I “googled” the Dublin Flea Market, to see what news there may be for the upcoming one at the end of the month I came across this blogger’s post about their last visit to the market:

http://stranded.ie/2009/03/29/dublin-march-flea/

” I love badges, and the fabric touch is a nice one. You could easily get a set made and use them as buttons for jumpers and cardi’s and Tees. “

It includes a great paragraph about their beaverbear experience and it was a brilliant feeling to see the success of what were having such fun doing πŸ˜€ We’re waiting to here if we’ve a stall at the next flea so FINGERS CROSSED!!

our array of market day goods!

our array of market day goods!

So us beaverbears packed up our old kit bag and brought our badges to market! …And what a fun day we had πŸ˜€

Dublin Flea was a great market to be part of, and we met some really friendly people, both on the stalls and passing by. We met fellow badge lovers and hopefully attracted some new converts to the world of badges! Along with some homemade brownies and buns, which went down a treat, we offered up a big collection of individual badges and some great series’ including very popular Snoopy’s which we salvaged from a Croatian comic πŸ™‚ We’re definitely going to apply to appear at the market next month, and if anyone couldn’t make it this time, we’d love to see you then…or if you can’t wait that long, we should be able to add some badges to the shop this week!

If anyone has any badge requests in the mean time don’t hesitate in contacting us…ali@eepdesign.com

Last year we found this beauty of a book in our local book shop, and flicking through it is such an inspiration πŸ™‚ Such fun and colour and great ideas for different themes and packaging…

We recently found the MySpace page for the guy who wrote the book and think it’s worth a look too http://www.myspace.com/badgebuttonpin πŸ˜€

boy badge maker

{1} You can wear them on your normal clothes – and a badge will give you individuality, style and attitude

{2) They are put-on-able and take-off-able statements (so you can easily change your badge with your mood)

{3} They are cheap as chips and available to everyone

{4} You can be a fan of/show allegiance to anything and everything by wearing a badge

{5} They are usually roundΒ  – and most things look and work well in a circle

{6} They are like little pieces of art

{7} Protest badges make great semi-permanent anarchy pieces

{8} They can perfectly match or clash as a a statement of fashion

{9} You can use them to cheaply accessorize and update old clothes

{10} They are a perfect gift to make someone smile πŸ˜€

Nuthin' but Buttons collection

Nuthin' but Buttons collection

We were approached by Diane Wisdom of Nuthin’ but Buttons to put together a wholesale bunch of badges that mimic colourful buttons. We were delighted to get involved with this new business who kicked up a storm at some of the markets over christmas. They sell an array of accessories all based on buttons, from rings to hair clips and now badges too!

If you think that a job-lot of buttons could be used as part of your business or as a promotional tool, drop us mail to discuss the details… ali@eepdesign.com or austin@eepdesign.com

It’s time to bear our badges in public!

Latest Dublin Flea Poster

Latest Dublin Flea Poster

Us bears went a beavering over to Dublin8 last Sunday to the Dublin Flea Market which is run every last Sunday of the month in the The Co-op Newmarket, just off Cork St.. It was only set up before Christmas, but it seems to have gotten off to a great start, and it was great fun having a rummage around! It also insipred us to try our hand at badge-mongering and we’ve applied for a stall at the next one on the 22th Feb. We’ve our fingers crossed big time, cos we think it’d be a great thing to be inolved in and that we’d create some deadly badges on the day πŸ™‚ We’re now going to hunt down applications for the Blackrock market, and others in Howth and Dun Laoghaire….we’ll make sure to let you know if we’re successful, and then you can put the dates in your diary to come visit us and create some badges to brighten your day!

Bad Bear!

Bad Bear!

Hi everyone,

We’ve been bad bears and neglected keeping you up to date on all the progress of the beaverbear crew and badge innovation that’s been going on since we first launched…but now it’s about time we filled you in on all the fun we’ve been having and show you some snaps of the great badges that have been created since last summer…eek it really has been that long!!

For anyone new to the idea, badge making is our passion and creating individual and exciting snapshots of design and fashion is our big goal πŸ™‚ With our clunky but wonderful badge maker and piles of magazines ( and new trend, fabrics! ) we slice up re-cycled and unique badges to adorn cardigans to coats, jumpers to jump suits, shoes to shirts…anywhere you can hook a badge is a good place to advertise your loves, dislikes, or just a pretty picture! You can use our flare to show your flair! (just like Jennifer Aniston in Office Space πŸ˜‰ )

So keep an eye out from now on for news updates that will be added over the coming weeks, and don’t forget to get in touch with any badge requests you might have, if you send us the pic and your postal address we can get the ball rolling!!

hand drawn badge creations!

When Michelle told us that she had created some tiny 1inch drawings and that she’d hoped to make badges with them we jumped at the chance to help that wish come true! We really believe that these are some of the best badges we have seen created since we started out and after making this limited collection we really hope to collaborate with Michelle and other local artists again πŸ™‚

If you would like to see more of Michelle’s work go to ; www.michelleconsidine.com

Thanks to all the beaverbear fans…

what a great success!

what a great success!

…Who took part during their lunch the other day, we had great fun and some brilliant badges came out of the event ( it think the sugar buzz of the smarties helped too πŸ˜‰ ). Niamh and Claude both made presents for their little nieces and cousins and it’s made us think that making badges for birthday parties could be a fun adventure too! It was great to have such enthusiastic feedback and to see how you all enjoy the badge making as much as we do…

Let’s hope we can arrange another EXTRAVAGANZA soon πŸ™‚

Radiohead?….Badged :)

You’ll have to take our word for it but we had a great day making and selling badges at the pre-radiohead concert bbq in malahide. We sold over a hundred badges of all types, radiohead themed ones and a whole range of quriky cuts from magazines we brought.

As was expected we part-took in all the celebrations ourselves and found ourselves covered head to toe in badges and more than tipsey too. So the photographs were forgotten and all we have to remember the day are blurred memories (happy ones at that) and an even bigger personal collection of badges. The blured and hazy pictures included sort of somes up the way everything looked and captures that day, but trust us we were there and it was a red letter day for beaverbear so misson accomplished πŸ™‚
