Get to Know Me

My name is Melissa and I'm a geeky/gothy thirty-something, with a husband (Andy), two cats and a dog who make me smile every day.

I've always loved making things. Sewing, crochet, painting, decoupage... I love it all! My mother taught me to sew as soon as I could reach the pedal. (Incidentally, this was also the only requirement for learning to drive.)

My goal is a simple one: Make stuff that I like to accessorize my life without going broke. I created this blog as a forum to share and document my projects.
