I just love your projects I think you put so much of your heart and soul into them they just radiate love. But even more than that - I love the way you express yourself and the love you have for your beautiful little blessing. I wish all people would recognize the blessings of love that God gives us. My sweet "little beans" are no longer little and sometimes not so sweet but that is mainly because they are teenage boys and that testosterone just takes away some sweetness when it hits. But they are still lovely and wonderful and I am cherishing the days. I only have 6 years left and then it will be an empty nest. I am looking forward to seeing the men that God plans for them to be and then spoiling their little beans when they bring them to me. God's blessings and thanks so much for sharing your heart with us each and every post.

Melissa I LOVE your Gracious Vases project! The colors are so fab, and you made your little bouquet coordinate so perfectly wtih the patterned paper. I love seeing your take on CAS sets, because I am not really CAS, either, so I love to see what you do with them. And I am blaming 2 people for my very-near-in-the-future purchase of Daydreamer...YOU and Debbie Olson. I have been drooling over your Vintage Picnic card, and Debbie's bouquet from yesterday. Who says we don't neeeeed more flower sets???!!!

Patty O'Malley

Oh my! Look how busy you have been making all these beautiful cards! Love this time of the year when you can get so many fresh things from the garden. The cookies look delicious. It's wonderful that you make so many homemade things. These are the memories that your little girl will cherish--I know they are the ones that I think of most about my mom. And the fact that she was always there.


Echoing everyone above... so much sweetness here today! thank you for sharing Melis. Enjoy your day with the lil beanie!

Lisa Dolson

Oh, your cards are just scrumptious, Melissa! It's always so fun to see your take on using a stamp set - because your projects are always soooo pretty!!! Just love them. Have a great day!


Absolutely beautiful once again. Not only your projects Melissa, but the way your words express the love you have for your little one. Thank you for this lovely post and blessings to you!

Alessandra Loiacono

Oh Melis, I can't say enough how amazing you are, how much joy and happiness your art brings to my heart.
I can only start my day every morning after checking your posts and they always make my day, for that and for everything that you do and say, a huge thank you.♥


all of your cards are lovely but i must say that your mehndi medallions card sells me on the set. it is so lovely and i think pairing it with the doily makes it seem that much more approachable. i also love your vintage picnic card...the colours you used make me think of provence!
thanks for sharing.


Beautiful projects! I love the card with the fence and the sweet felt flowers! How fun to put pearls on the clouds!


Troy Louise
