It's been a manic few weeks.....once Teddy Bo & Teddy Bea popped into my head just before Christmas I became obsessed with drawing them so haven't had much of a chance to do anything else!!!!! Thought I'd start back with my weekly calendar of posts...so for those that haven't been following since the beginning (Nov 10) this is how my week 'should' pan out:
Monday~ "Make a new friend Monday" ~ a chance to bring along a friend and receive a free thank you graphic when your friend nominates you for their introduction.
Tueday~ Just a day for me to ramble on!!!...but remember we have "The Teddy Bo Tuesday Challenge" over at Teddybo.com also, new graphics loaded at the store.
Wednesday~ "What's on my desk Wednesday" ~ A wee glance into what graphics, or maybe even crafts, I'm working on and where you'll be able to purchase them from.
Thursday~ This is the day our weekly challenge on the blog closes..so busy trying to get any last minute participants
Friday~ Fairydoodler's Friday Freebie Challenge, new graphic released and winners announced.....we're considering changing this to the 'Fortnightly' challenge to give more people time to enter.
Saturday~ Sneak a peek Saturday....quick glance at what I'm drawing that day!!
Sunday~ I'd like to say, thank you for visiting that day but it will just be jiberish you'll be reading....or will it!?!?!!?! ;o)
So...going with this plan I SHOULD be showing you what's on my desk right now....well.....there are so many things on it right now not too sure whether to show you more Teddy Bo & Co or even Percy Penguin....or some Valentines!?!?! What do you think!? What would you like to have a peek at?!!?
ALSO......we're 2 followers away from our first 100.....again, for those of you who have been reading regularly there's a draw for a FREE DIGITAL STAMP DRAWN COMPLETELY TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS for the winner....when we get to 150 of you 3 of you will win and for 200 followers there's the chance for 6 of you to win a digital stamp and one of you to get it in a clear stamp....woohoo....now, THAT'S exciting!!
Because it's Wednesday you only have today and tomorrow left for our Friday Freebie challenge........no excuses.....it's a boy graphic this week..and we all know how rare they are (that's going to change though!!)...so get over to the Friday Freebie Page and grab that 'dude' and let's see what you can do with him!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome DEBBIE:
Monday, 10 January 2011
So, with out further ado, please welcome HEIDI:
''I am a stay-at-home Mum and part-time craft demonstrator at Craft Shows. I have been crafting for about ten years, blogging for three. I love stamping and colouring cute images, and playing with bright fun papers & card. I am married to David, have three lovely girls - Amy,
Jess & Georgia and a houseful of pets. Our two cats Molly & CoCo rule the house and love to sit and watch me craft.
I started making dolls cloths for my Pippa dolls when I was ten, knitting scarves for all of my teds and then the cross-stitch bug got me and I have spent many hours completing 'Winnie The Pooh' samplers for my girls, so crafting has always been my thing! I am never happier than when I am in my craft room surrounded by lots of buttons, ribbons & chocolate!''
Heidi's fanastic blog can be found here...please pop over for a wee looky and maybe leave her a wee comment.
We are tickled pink to announce that COLETTE has joined our Design Team
I'd personally like to take this opportunity to say...I don't know how Colette manages it all....she has a busy timetable and we're delighted that she has squeezed us in too!
"My name is Colette (obviously) , I live in Liverpool and am married to Eric, we have 2 beautiful daughters Stacy and Meg, and a very handsome grandson ( I know we all think that about our own, but he truly is LOL!) called Will. I don't go to work as my youngest daughter was born with a condition called Arthrogryphosis, she is disabled and uses a wheelchair to get around, I am her full time carer, looking after all her personal care etc., I also pick Will up from school a couple of afternoons a week, he can talk the hind leg off a donkey LOL! so no peace once he is here.
I suppose my crafty life began when I took up crocheting aged 10, but really took off when I was pregnant with Meg and started cross-stitching, I've also done cake decorating, flower arranging, Faberge style egg decorating, (which I taught at night school for a while), scrapbooking and of course card making. Through scrapbooking I discovered digital products and have never looked back, if I can do it digitally I will! I am completely addicted! I don't know how long it's been since I bought a piece of 'real' designer paper.
I use Photoshop for all my digi work and I absolutely love it, I think I would have a nervous breakdown if I ever lost it LOL!
It is a great pleasure to be part of the Teddy Bo and Bea design team. The digi stamps are so fabulous that it is easy to design cards and projects around them."
Colette's blog can be visited here and we hope that you will pop along for a wee visit.....we have another 2 ladies to introduce to you all....this might not all happen before the door opens in our shop tomorrow morning at 9am GMT but by the time a lot of you have woken up we'll all be in place. Can't wait for you all to visit http://www.teddybo.com/
Oh it's Monday morning and normally I would be thinking....oh..another week..but instead I'm thinking....oh we launch tomorrow!! AAAAAAAAAAA!!! Got a few wee tweeks left with the website and a couple of boxes to unload but we're just about ready and we can't wait to show off our Design Team's cards...Oh My Word....they are STUNNING!!!!!!
Before we get there though we have another member of our Design Team to announce:
Ladies (and Gentlemen) please welcome LISA to the team.
I have been making cards for about 5 years but also do a little scrapbooking. I love cute images and my favourite embellishments are flowers. In my opinion they really add the 'finishing touch'. "
Lisa's gorgeous blog can be found here and I hope you can pop by and have a wee look and maybe leave her a wee comment.

Day 2 of our Design Team Announcement
She loves card making and has been doing it for years! Her earliest memory of crafting is making paper clothes for her poor Sindy Doll (The British Barbie). She started trying to make cards with cross stitch but that took too long so changed to paper-crafting which has now taken over!
Her poor husband often comes home to find a mess *cough cough* through the house and burnt dinners :) Gosh...that sounds familiar!!
(I know it's naughty, but this is one of Claire's cards...isn't it gorgeous.
Don't tell anyone that I've put it up.)

Isn't this just STUNNING!
Tammy has been playing (I wish I could do this when I was 'playing'!!) I'm so proud of my talented friend. There's more to see at her blog.
I was going to give Tammy's introduction as our Creative Director on our Design Team a separate post but I don't want to 'hop' over this post...I want everyone to see it, SO:
I have known Tammy now for 5 years (ish)....she was one of my first every customers and she was unlucky enough to buy one of my first every kits...thank goodness practice pays off as my early kits were BAD!!!!
We've had a LOT of long telephone chats, we've 'pinged' on MSN a LOT and we even met up nearly 2 years ago on our way home from seeing friends. Tammy has three gorgeous (and I mean gorgeous) girls and one beautiful little grandaughter...oh and there's also her hubby...but he doesn't craft so we don't need to mention him!!!!;o)
We have spent the last couple of years on the same digital stores and she has made many a gorgeous card with my graphics. She's always the first person that I send them to.
Last year both of us 'lost our mojo' separately and also lost contact but in November I decided to google my old friend to find out what she'd been up to and I found her blog....I'm delighted to say that the last 6 weeks or so have been frantic, exciting, productive, exhausting but fabulous and Teddy Bo & Bea LOVE their new Aunty Tammy...and she gives me LOTS of inspiration and ideas as what crafters would like as cards. She is MEGA talented and very patient (she has to be, she's got me as a friend) and very generous both with her time and talent.
If there's anyone I trust to tell me the truth it's Tammy...I'm honoured to have her as my friend....and I'm delighted that she's with me on this new journey.
Please make a wee jump over to her blog and see her wonderful cards.
Thank you Tammy x Luv ya babes x

We want to thank the ladies that applied for our Design Team....we had a great time looking through all your blogs but we had to make a decision and we're delighted to announce that our Design Team has been picked.
We will start to introduce "FairyD's Angels" from tomorrow and they have been very busy already...I can't wait to show you what they've been making....oooooh...exciting!!!!!!!!
This week's Fairydoodler's Friday Freebie Challenge is also up...we really hope that more of you will enter our challenge as we ended up with over 2100 downloads of last week's freebie, so it would be AMAZING if we had lots and lots of cards to oooooogle over!!!
Congratulation ladies and I'll be in touch soon.x
Thursday, 6 January 2011

Good Morning All

Good Morning All
We're really excited at how quickly our followers list is building so we thought we'd do a quick 'Candy' for the blog. (Sadly I had to have this explained to me by Tammy!!)
As the site is a graphic only site I thought I'd do something with a personalised slant, so I've come up with the idea of creating a personalised digital graphic when we get to 100 followers for one lucky person.
So, the rules are as follows:
- 100 followers - 1 lucky person will get a personalised digital stamp drawn to their specifications
- 150 followers - 3 lucky people get a personalised digital stamp drawn to their specifications
- 200 followers - 6 lucky people get a personalised digital stamp drawn to their specifications AND 1 person will get a rubber stamp made of ANY image within the Fairydoodler range or made to their specifications
TEDDY BO's BLOG is still very new and he's looking for more followers so if you could pop over there and follow him he'd be VERY happy......and yes, he'll have 'candy' over there too!!!So.......there's never been a better time to sign up to follow our blog....we have lots of news to announce over the next wee while and we really hope that you can join with us on our journey.
