Welcome to Red Ted Art
Hello, thank you so much for visiting Red Ted Art and stopping by here to learn a little bit more about my blog and me!
I am Maggy.. and this is my little mascot Ted!
What this website is about:
- Do-able, with great results for all
- Simple materials (mostly!)
- Help build skills & confidence
The crafts often focus on seasons and holidays, but there are many ideas for all year around!
This ethos of simplicity, fun, and do-ability is reflected in my two print copy books.
My Family & Me
So who am I and why Red Ted Art? I am Maggy Woodley.
I am half Austrian, half Spanish, living in the Uk – married to “The Englishman”. I like to think of myself as an “European”. I love all this crafty and I love all things arty. I love exploring and trying out new things.
I have one son – known as Red Ted. Red Ted is a very lucky boy, as he has a brand named after him. I am very lucky mum, as I have Red Ted (needless to say I am bias). Red Ted loves making things from “junk” and drawing. I also have a little girl: Pip Squeak. Pip Squeak adores painting and getting messy and she is just like her mum…
In spring I grow tomatoes and other veg (with varying degrees of success). In autumn I make green tomatoe chutney. And I like baking Austrian cookies at Christmas. We have two cuddly little cats (come to think of it, they look a bit like little teddy bears..). The children play with the cats’ toys and the cats play with children’s toys. I guess that is just how things are.
