I love each of these, my fave is the pincushion ... but I'd love to make the "You are the Most Beautiful..." for someone special in my family ... unfortunately they're out of stock :( Thanks for all the tutorials you share with us. Hope you have a blessed year ~ Mary

Beautiful cards, Melis, and that heart...!! I hope I can see the rest of the hearts you made before they sell out in your etsy shop. You know I have a weakness for those pin cushions!


Hi Melissa, just thinking of you and your little one as I watch my own little one grow every day. I didn't think it possible, but your work gets even lovelier every day - you are such an incredible talent and inspire me so! The pincushion is just gorgeous, as are the cards. Hope to have a chance to visit your blog and dream with your musings more often this year - I especially connect to your posts about your sweet girl - it's as if you took the words out of my heart and wrote them down. Happy New Year!


That IS a sweet sentiment, and how lucky for your mother that you feel that way about her. I love your pincushions... one of these days I will break down and order one for my daughter's room!

lovely pieces of art. may you find peace and more happiness this year. glad that you have your family to support and comfort you. cherish each moment, time flies by so quickly. enjoying my time with my not so little ones while they have vacation. here's to a smooth 2012.


Your endless ideas and gorgeous creations are always such inspiration!! As always they are all wonderful but the pin cushion is most especially lovely!! It is amazing how all those big boulders in life all become surmountable when we are surrounded with the love of a beautiful family!! My sweet mama has been extremely ill for 2 months and taking care of her has surely reminded me of how special family is and how blessed I have been to have such a loving family! Looking forward to your creations this year and hope that the blessing of the Lord overflow you.


very pertty cards and just love your heart, that pom pom border is so sweet!


Hi Melissa! Every card and project is a little piece of art! I love reading your blog, it's very relaxing. You are very talented and thanks for sharing such great inspiration. I can learn a lot from you.
Hugs, Manuela

OH my goodness Melissa, I am wiping the drool off my keyboard!! On the "you are the most beautiful.." card - can you tell me anything about that teal flower? You probably made it yourself, I'm wondering what type of fabric it is! It's glorius! And the heart pincushion - the colors, the pom pom trim and pearls is all so gorgeous, pretty sure I'll have to buy one! Thanks in advance


Such beauty here- I love your card with that gorgeous flower, and the heart is beautiful also.
Greetings Dorthe
