I am not only a new blogger, but also a new business start up. I decided that blogging may be a good way to help drive things forward – how can you blog about something that isn’t happening? I have lots to do with the new start up, so am trying to keep on my toes.
So, what is it all about? I have just started Red Ted Art – My aim is to bring art & colour to children’s hearts. I make customised and affordable pop art paintings for children’s bedrooms, as well as creating packages (ask me about Arty Party bags) to get the little rascals involved directly!! I have sold a few paintings to friends, but now need to get serious. Current efforts focus on creating my website – redtedart.com – I have drafted it and it is “with the designer”, but it may still be a few weeks before it actually goes live. In the meantime I have this blog and a flickr website to keep everyone up to date. I seem to be spending more time at my computer than actually painting at the moment. But I guess that that is all part of starting something up… Anyway, if you are interested in hearing more about the paintings, let me know!
In the meantime, a little about me – So who am I and what is the brand? I am Maggy Woodley. I am half Austrian, half Spanish, living in the Uk – married to an Englishman. I like to think of myself as an “European”. I have one son – Max. Max is a very lucky boy, as he has a brand named after him. I am very lucky mum, as I have Max (needles to say I am bias). I like making my friends’ birthday cards. 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..) and two chickens. So we have fresh eggs every day. Max plays with the cats’ toys and the cats play with Max’s toys. I guess that is just how things are.
