I hail from Down Under on a broadacre cropping farm in North East Victoria, Australia with my husband 'The Farmer' and three grass-seeds Gorgia (17), Benjamin (11) and Edward aka Teddy (4). We are a crazy bunch that love to laugh, play, argue, annoy, prank and work hard together. Crafting has always been part of my life however having a busy family it's confined to late at night when I steal a few hours to myself. I guess that's why I've always loved the brightness, and cuteness of the whimsical nature that is Doodlebug because it lights up the dark nights when I'm pottering away at my desk. I mean... how could you not smile when confronted with sweet little faces on darling icons in every collection. I guess that's why I love to use collage style pieces on most of my projects because I just can't choose which products to use so I try to use them all.
The 2017 is a mix of past designers and fresh new faces so I'm looking forward to continuing with existing friendships and building fun relationships with the new members. It's going to be an exciting year.
Here are some of the projects we loved from Melinda featuring Doodlebug Design products:
