I always look forward to the friendly welcomeI get when I stop by your blog. Sure love your projects, and I can't believe your Little Bean is 7! Woah! My Little Miss recently turned 3 and starts preschool this week! *Sniff* How am I ever going to survive without my little shadow and best pal?!? Love the apron strings card. Too, too cute!

Rachel Greig

Such beautiful projects Melis! You really do amazing stuff with our stamps and everyone else's stuff!!! And happy birthday to Miss Sierra!

Ros Crawford

Such a treat for my eyes ... I love the stamps and the way you have used everything .... Incredibly beautiful art ..


I've been worried about you too.
Happy to hear you had a good time!
Very Happy Birthday to Sierra!

And your cards are very stylish and beautiful as usual.

So glad you had a wonderful time, your cards today are just adorable. Your imagination amazes me!!


Wow! These are beautiful. (My comments here are very predictable--WOW, Gorgeous, Lovely). My descriptive powers are not up to the job of describing your beautiful creations. I could just sit and stare at them. They inspire me to try layerng and more embellishment.

I'm so glad to know that you and your family are fine and had a wonderful time together, Melissa! I was worried about all of you! Your cards are beautiful and the little clothesline card is precious! I have those Maya Road chipboard pieces, but just wasn't sure what to do with them. Now I have some ideas! Welcome back, and Happy Birthday to Sierra!


A very happy belated birthday to little Miss Sierra. Goodness, where have the past 7 years flown? Your one-of-a-kin dress and laundry cards just melt my card. Your creativity is so awe inspiring.

I just wan to tell you how much I love your art. Your work is such an inspiration. Your thoughtful comments on life make me so grateful for all that I have. I have 2 grown daughters, but one leaves for school in Ireland tomorrow. Our life with them has flown by. We have been soaking in hug soup. It is still hard for me to see them fly...but that is their job.
Hugs to you and your family,


It's lovely to 'see" you again and read that you had a wonderful time. It's always good to spend time together with your beloved ones.
And your creations? They are all so worth waiting for. Fabulous; as always.
Enjoy your soup tonight!


Ooops forgotten....Sierra a bit late but happy birthday!!!!!!


I've been waiting for your post for days!
It's all worth the wait seeing your beautiful work!!
And happy birthday to Sierra! :)


Happy belated birthday, Sierra!
So happy to hear you have enjoyed your time away, Melissa.
Fall is my favorite time of year, too.
But winter is right up there with it.

How I love to bask in the wonderment of your art. First look is to take it all in, second and subsequent looks are to take in all the details. Thank you for sharing with us.

Seven is a great age; you're a bit taller, school is still fun, and Halloween is the best, especially when you're seven. Enjoy.
