Meet the Maker
My name is Cheryl, I'm a wife, a mum of two, a successful career woman and the founder of Light n Crafty.
I created Light n Crafty to help my fellow "super mums" who give so much to others, ultimately leaving so little left for themselves. Those women who want to enjoy being more creative and crafty but, who feel it's all just a bit too advanced or scary or maybe simply tag it as "too hard". Don't get me wrong, my kits are for everyone...but it's these women, women like me, that I desperately wanted to help. They were my inspiration, motivation and whom my business is built to serve.
I designed and brought to market a range of lighting craft kits that achieve amazing results with virtually no time or effort required. My kits are designed to be a gateway to break down that self doubt monster that whispers in our ear and stands in our way far too often.

My mission is to help make your inner self smile
I'm going to let you in on a secret...being creative isn't a talent that you either have or you don't have. Neither is it a skill that you can learn and "be good at".
Creativity is simply what happens when you let your inner self smile.
I wanted to be creative. I wanted to join the self care community. To feel the glow of my inner harmony at peace...but there was always a reason that stopped me.
"I don't have time" , "I don't have the right equipment" , "I don't have the know how" , "Mine won't look that good".
What ever my reason at the time was, ultimately, behind it all sat fear and insecurity.
I made it my mission to create products that bridge the river of insecurities and help people get to their "Crafty Island".

Why is it all to do with lighting?
Creativity is so vast in what it includes that I decided I wanted something to link it all together. To me, light personifies my core values.
Light is pure, calming and healing. I think everyone has been mesmerized by the dance of a flame, stared up at a bright glowing moon or wished upon a star.
Light brings warmth physically and mentally. When we feel pride, we feel a warmth spread through us and we glow.
Purity and morality, cosmic energy, creative force and optimism are all related to light.
