Introducing 2014 Design Team Members Courtney Lee & Melinda Spinks

Today we are thrilled to introduce you to two more 2014 Design Team members, Courtney Lee and Melinda Spinks. 

Courtney Lee
What?!? Is this real!?! I am SO SO SO SO excited (and still pinching myself) to announce that I made the Doodlebug Design Team!!! My name is Courtney Lee and my blog is Court's Crafts. I love all things paper and have recently discovered fabric.... in. love. Just when you thought you had too much patterned paper - try fabric!!! 

I live in Carmel, California with my handsome husband and beautiful little girl Emmaline. We have another baby girl due in February and I cannot wait to meet her. 

I LOVE Doodlebug. The cuteness - the whimsy - the bold colors. Love love love. I recently discovered Doodlepops and I can't get enough! I am thrilled that Doodlebug makes fabric as I am addicted to sewing now! I would love to work with fabric! I make everything from little girls' dresses to home decor and am loving every minute. I am happy to send you some samples of my sewing!

I currently design for May Arts Ribbon, Xyron Inc., Imaginisce (2014) and My Creative Time. (My Creative Time will be ending December 31st. Xyron is up for renewal in February.)

You can find me on Pinterest, Facebook, and Blogger.

Finally A Chimney That Santa Can Fit Down

Melinda Spinks
G'day from Down Under!

I'm Melinda Spinks and I'm tickled pink to continue for another term with the gorgeous Doodlebug family. Now a little about me...I live on our farm in North East Victoria, Australia with my husband (the farmer) and our three little stinkers 14, 8 and almost 2. I'd love to say our life is one of perfect harmony with a pristine house and a weedless garden full of blooming roses but that would be a pipe-dream and a very large fib. Life is busy and there are never enough hours in the day but I wouldn't have it any other way as I get bored very quickly when I don't have something to keep me occupied... hence the reason why I fell into scrapbooking just over 4 years ago. I had a void in the evenings that needed filling when the kids were in bed and the farmer was asleep in his chair. I'd always been crafty of sorts and so I jumped at the opportunity to do something creative whilst preserving memories along the way. Little did I realise how this incredible journey would change my life and introduce me to the most amazing people all over the world, many who have become life-long friends.

I must admit I have always been a sucker for the whimsical and funky designs of Doodlebug along with the amazing rainbow of colors which makes designing so much fun... and today I would like to share some of my favorite projects.
