Thank you (and Mish) so much for taking the time to do this. I am sure I speak for so many when I say that it is so appreciated. I come to your blog first thing every morning to get inspired. And just reading your posts is so uplifting! I say just keep doing what you love and we will love it too!

What a wonderful 12 days! Thank you for your beautiful inspiration! I enjoy looking at your amazing creations, and would love tutorials (video or written) giving step-by-step details. I also truly love reading what you write each day. You have a wonderful gift with words. Merry Christmas to you and your family! I look forward to all that 2011 brings.


Melissa, thank you so much for always being willing to share your BEAUTIFUL...BEAUTIFUL creations with us! I always enjoy visiting your LOVELY blog for inspiration! Your lovely creations are the most beautifully unique I've ever seen...most definitely "works of art"! I often wonder HOW you create such beauties each and every time. I would enjoy tutorials...but you are already so busy. Thanks for all you do! Merry Christmas!
-Many blessings to you!


What terrific eye candy for us to see. I would love to see a tutorial with an option to purchase the kit and make it on our own. You always know how to inspire and I have certainly enjoyed coming here for my dose of inspiration. Have a great holiday.


I have enjoyed this 12 Days of Christmas with you and Mish. THank you for all the hard work. It sure is inspiring and will help me all year long when trying to work on Christmas items. I just got an etsy package from you today in the mail. Love it all! I would love to see classes or tutorials from you in the future. But I would love to see some of the landscape where you live...a cactus or the other plants out there!

What a shabby fabby 12 days of peeks you've shared with us all, Melissa :)

Your blog is always so informative and inspiring ... if I had to choose just one more thing to see, it would be tutorials on your shabby and vintage secrets and tricks to make your cards and projects so overwhelmingly delicious! You already share so much, it is almost too much to ask to have you do more ... but I do so love your creativity and inspiration!

Merry Christmas, my stampy friend!

Hugs, Debbie xoxoxoxo

Thanks for all your projects all year! I'd love to see just one project stepped-out with photos next year -- only one, so we can get the feel of your process without spoiling the fairy magic you must be using!

How beautiful Melissa! I think your blog is just perfect, but I would love to see a step by step tutorial on how you make your cards...they are just magical.

your blog is such a delight - so glad I found it. I adore every single item you create and show us and I agree with one or two of the other comments - I'd love to see a tutorial - step by step - for how you come up with these fantastic ideas and then create that idea. Can't wait to see what is coming up in the year to come. Have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas.

I'm so in love with your blog, Melissa. I would love a tutorial on how to layer elements without making the project look cluttered. And, if you could pass some of your creative magic through my modem, I would love that, too!

I love all your beautiful creations. They are so detailed and delicate. I would love to see a mini workshop with perhaps a supply list in advance so we could prepare and participate.

Oh Melissa, I have really enjoyed your 12 days of Christmas with Mish! As for what I would love to see next year, all I can ask for is more of what you already are doing. I made a cute embellishment for a gift yesterday and glued this cute little white, glittery angel in the middle of the ribbon. So Melissa Phillips! Thanks for inspiring me all year.


I love love all of your creations. You have inspired me so much. I love it when I have an email saying you have sent me a message. That means a new post a new project by you. I would love to know how you tie the twill ribbon sovwell into beautiful bows. I can make beautiful bows but for some reason I have trouble with the twill. I look forward to the New Year and more of your beautiful projects. Thank you.
