Friday is here!

Friday, November 13th, 2020

It’s Friday, and quite a sunny one at Beaniepedia HQ!

This morning I took this photo of my new medium-sized Charmed Flippable, who I absolutely ADORE! I’ve never really collected the medium Beanie Boos/Flippables before (mainly because of space to keep them all), but there is something about the medium size Flippables especially because the sequins seem to flip more easily!

It’s also Friday 13th today, which is a little concerning if you’re superstitious in the year 2020 where nothing seems to be going right.

I’ve managed to get in a few more Beanie requests today (for some reason I can’t reply to one of the members who contacted me, but just to let you know I got your email and I have added some of the Beanies that weren’t on the website. I still have some to add but I will get them in shortly).

Right now, I’m going to have a tea break (excuse the bowl. It’s my daughter’s, honest!). Have a great weekend!

Keep safe everyone!

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

Hi everyone!

Sorry I’ve been a little quiet lately. It’s all gone a bit crazy since my last post.

As you have almost certainly heard, we are currently in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. I’m still here and keeping safe, and I hope everyone is also feeling well and following the guidelines set out by their country. We all need to do our bit at the moment to help everyone out during this time.

I also hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day in the UK, despite perhaps not being able to celebrate in quite the same way as usual.

Now more than ever, we need to discover the importance of keeping ourselves occupied in the comfort of our own homes. I know many parents will be looking for ideas to keep their children busy and still learning now that the schools are shut in the UK.

Arts and crafts are great for keeping little minds occupied. One idea could be to draw their favourite Beanie Boo or Beanie Baby in different scenarios (perhaps a springtime picture to brighten things up), or make a comic strip with a short story. Or creating clothes and accessories for their Beanie Boo using craft supplies or things around the home. Pinterest is great for ideas if you’re stuck!

Jigsaw puzzles or board games are good for passing time and baking is great fun and brilliant for learning a new skill. There’s even a treat at the end of it!

Scorch (pictured above) has got his day sorted doing crossword puzzles with a cup of tea.

How are you keeping yourself busy? And most importantly, keep yourself and others safe!
