Hello, my name is Maggy!

Apparently, I am a fictitious character created by two wacky artists. Do you believe it? Rubbish, I’m as real as you are. It’s just that I live somewhere that is inside everyone. All you have to do is find me, and here I am! When I was 6 1/2, I thought people’s signatures were very important, so I decided to design my own. It hasn’t changed since then.

Blue for a boy, pink for a girl. Codswallop! I am a girl and I don’t like pink. It’s wishy-washy and weak. If I’m a girl I like real deep pink, like red! Like in your face, don’t mess with me, cos I like red. That can say a lot about someone, can’t it!

When I was 13 I got the best pair of jeans I’d ever had and worn them all the time, until I wore out the knees. Mum was going to throw them away but I insisted on keeping them and put big red patches on them, with a long strong black cord so they lasted. I was making a statement. Having something you truly love is more important than modern and trendy.

I also like smiley faces, my favorite is the one that winks. It says: ‘I know a lot of secrets and I’ll share them with you if you’ll be my friend. Now you can see why I like my logo. It says a lot about what I am and what I am not. Most of all, what it says is handmade with love.

I’m 39, again, and I’ve been through the mill. I live on my own and I’m getting on with it. My first tip on life I will give you is: if you want to save money, stop spending it. You don’t have to give things up, you just have to adjust.

So if you want to find out more, all you have to do is look a little harder and work it all out for yourself, won’t you? But if you got me as your friend, I can help!
