Spotlight on......

Wow can't believe a week has gone by since I last did this, where does the time go?

Anyway enough of that this weeks Spotlight on... is the very talented
Mel of Inkydoodlecrafts

Mel has been crafting since a very early age , she learnt to knit at the age of 6 and consequently had the best dressed dolls amongst all her friends!
In her teens she used to suppliment her pocket money by knitting jumpers for people - not so many of todays kids would be as enterprising! Her mum also introduced her to the world of cross stitch and her sewing background heavily influences her current passion of papercrafting
 Mel now specialises in toppers, embellishments and greeting cards
How beautiful are these tile toppers?

This butterfly design has been made using 6 tiles that have been enamelled , what a beautiful design and they look just like glass
Both these can be found in Mel's Etsy shop 

 My favourite item of Mel's is this fabulous card , the dragonfly is her own design and I think it looks amazing on this card, I would be over the moon if someone sent me a card like this
All in all I think this is one lady who will go far or at least she should, she is so talented and her designs so unique.
If you want to find out more about Mel and her creations you can find her on Facebook or why not pop over and read her Blog .

Spotlight on......

This week's spotlight is on the very talented Di Sandland, she lives in Devon with her husband , was previously a midwife and is a published author . It really is so interesting what you find out about people when you delve a little or is that me just being nosey lol

 To borrow a quote from Di's blog her ' major love affair is silver' and boy I have to confess I now have a major love affair with her creations!
Just look at this focal silver bead which has been etched with the words from 'Beside The Seaside' it is gorgeous and can be found in her etsy shop
plus this jaw droppingly gorgeous necklace
 Whilst doing this spotlight series I have been truly amazed at the amount of talented people out there , true artists who never seem to get the recognition they deserve and I have to say Di really is a true artist 
You can also catch up with her on facebook

I will leave you with one more of Di's creations to drool over
