Prayers are answered! Selfishly, I am so happy that you will still be popping in to see us. That is one awesome husband you have, and I do believe he knows how very special you are to all of us and we thank him for sharing you. Please know that you have lifted me up with your beautiful art, your feeds to thought provoking articles, poems, etc., my favorites were some from Marjorie Pay Hinckly (spell?) that you referenced a while back. You have a gift!! Please don't ever forget that. Focus on your family and your new home..such fun! And please remember that we all out here in blogland Love You:)

Hi Melissa,

I am a HUGE fan of yours, and a subscriber to your blog. When you wrote that last post about taking a break, I was so sad! I'm really glad that you're coming back to it! As a mother of 3, I know how you would want to spend as much time as possible with your little one. Isn't it hard to divide your time?!

Well, I have to say that I am excited that you're going to be continuing your blog, when you have time! Sounds like you have a lot of things going on!!!!

Your creations are truly amazing! You were the one that got me hooked on to Melissa Frances! I wish that I could create like you! You are SUCH an inspiration!

Thank you so much! I look forward to seeing what you do with your blog and I always look forward to your posts!

Have a wonderful day!


What a wonderful husband you have! And blog readers :0) We will be here when you have time, please make sure you take care of yourself and family first...then create amazing things for us to drool over!


Yay! You just made me very happy! So glad to hear you will be blogging again. It is such a joy to visit your blog every day with my morning coffee and see your beautiful creations and read about your wonderful stories, you bring a smile to my face with every visit. Good luck with the move, I'm so excited for you!


Horray! I've still been checking for updates everday just to see if by chance you'd be back and here you are! I'm so happy that you haven't given up your blog--I love hearing about your little bean and all her adventures and of course I come here to be dazzled and inspired by your wonderful creations!! Have a great weekend!


Ahhh, your husband is a very wise man:) Bless him and YOU. Enjoy this time. Glad to know you are finding peace within and have found a happy medium. We all have to do an inner search sometimes. You have a wonderful best friend with that hubby of yours! I am lucky to have one as well. Welcome back! Kathi
