A Little Bit About Me 

Well, my name is Cheryl and I started my business Light n Crafty in 2019 officially, but I guess I was thinking about it for a year or so before then.    I wanted to make DIY, Crafts and Upcycling more accessible to people like me who find the "you will need" lists simply daunting!  Who feel they don't have enough time, or are put off because it seems too hard & complicated.  People who have those 2 little voices in their head, 1 saying "Ooo that looks nice, I should do that!" and the other voice saying "I can't do it", "I bet mine wouldn't look like that".  So I created decided to create kits that have everything you need in them.  That are super easy to do.  That are guaranteed to give you amazing results and fill you with a "I made that" warm glow that is pride.  

I am lucky enough to say that I live on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, but, I am originally from Staffordshire, England, (where they made famous pottery such as Wedgewood and Royal Doulton).  We moved to Australia in 2017 because we wanted a better life for our 2 young boys.  I’m not going to sugar coat it…we have had the most horrendous experience with the Australian Visa system, but, when something is important you fight tooth and nail for it and nothing is more important to me than my children! 

They say that if you do something you love you will never work a day in your life.  I’m can honestly tell you …that’s just not true!  I love what I am doing with my business…but my goodness has it been (and still is) hard work!!   

You can find out more about my journey in my blog, I am honest and hopefully entertaining so hopefully you will enjoy it, but let me know!
