Maggy Woodley, from the UK, is mother to Red Ted (3) and Pip Squeak (1) After having Red Ted she decided to become a “stay at home mum” and now runs a Craft Blog Red Ted Art from home.
I know that crafting is not everyone body’s thing. Many think that they are not creative while others dislike the mess or feel they don’t have the time. So I try and bring a broad mix of crafts – some to inspire (to those that need help with ideas), some that are not messy at all and others that are very quick, but fun. I see how much children get out of crafts and how they can play with the same crafted toys for weeks (see our Boy & Penguin). Crafting is wonderful for bonding, for nurturing and for developing all sorts of skills (amongst others, creativity, imagination, motor skills and confidence). I really do hope that Red Ted Art helps others find their love for crafts and inspires them to have a go. There are no “rubbish” crafters in my eyes!"
