Today I’d like to introduce you to Christine. I met her via Twitter and she’s a regular visitor to my creative networking hour there called #CreativeBizHour She’s a talented designer and is here to tell you more about her beautiful work.
Hi there, I’m Christine and I’m the fairy ‘behind the scenes’ of Christie’s Crafts. I create custom-made fairy doors and accessories that give children a doorway into their very own Fairy Wonderland to start them on a magical, inspiring and creative journey!
Children have the most amazing imaginations and their creativity should always be supported and encouraged. Fantasy or pretend play is a fabulous way of doing this whilst at the same time giving them useful and amazing skills for their future so in 2016 I came up with the concept of a fairy doors and accessories business in order to give them the opportunity of developing these skills.
On my website you will find many of my custom-made fairy door designs, even some for teens and adults. Some of them even have 3D brick effect textures on them and I also create themed doors to cover any occasion. Each and every door, along with a wide choice of accessories is personally hand-painted by me and can also be personalised to suit. I hope you like what you see but on the off-chance you don’t, I do also take custom orders.
Reasons why fairy doors are great for kids and part of the reasons why I do this! 😀
Imagination – children can develop their imagination through fantasy or pretend play.
Creativity – fantasy or pretend play can help a child to develop creative thinking.
Self-expression – children are encouraged to make up stories or to even draw pictures for their fairies.
Language skills – children develop these skills though writing notes for their fairies and reading the fairies replies.
Recognition – fairies recognise children’s efforts and hard work and love to praise them and sometimes even give them a reward along with a little note – “I love it when you keep your room tidy as it makes it so much easier for me to come in and out through my fairy door” – “Well done for all your hard work at school”.
Fairies love to praise children’s efforts and hard work and sometimes give them a reward – well done for all your hard work at school.
Emotional Support – fairies love to listen to and try to take away children’s worries and sometimes even grant children’s wishes.

Keep reaching out to kids Christie. You never know when your craft may change the life of a child that is looking for hope, inspiration and encouragement. Children learn in many different ways. Thanks Lizzie for hosting. The artwork and teaching concepts are fabulous.
