Simply the Best!

This week's Handmade Artists' Forum Blog Ring Featured Artisan is none other than Kimberly from Makin The Best Of It. Kimberly is one half of the dynamic duo that are responsible for the creation of the Handmade Artists' Forum and Shop, as well as being an incredibly talented artisan in her own right. She is mum to two boys (deserves a medal..boys are hard work LOL) and she also puts up with Andrew (the other half of the dynamic duo)!
When Kimberly knew she was up to be featured she suggested people could do a feature on the HAF shop instead, which really is just like Kimberly - she spends an enormous amount of time (along with Andrew) supporting and promoting other handmade artists. But Kimberly deserves to be put in the spotlight, she really does create some amazing pieces.
One of the areas she excels is handpainting glassware and home decor. I would love to own her creations, mainly so I could just drool over them! She also creates chainmaille and gorgeous jewellery, especially with Sea Glass, another reason I love her to bits.
So do yourself a favour and drop by MakinTheBestOfIt , Chainmaille By MBOI (Andrew makes Chainmaille too), or her blog, and see for yourself what a wonderful artisan Kimberly is.

I often wonder where on earth they find the time to keep up with all of the artists in the Handmade Artist Forum (as well as other sites). Simply amazing! Thank you for sharing!
