Sadly to say, this was my first time visiting Melissa's shop: http://www.MadebyMelissa.com Were it not for her being chosen as our October Blogger of the Month, I would have missed a shop of many finds. Melissa's shop has a wide range of articles for sales, ranging from Jewelry, Toy, Vintage Items, to various crocheted items such as Baby Blankets, Pot Holders, Wash Cloths, and little animals, like the lop-earred bunny pictured here. She also has quite a few very cute earring just in time for Halloween.
According to Melissa she started crafting as a way to express her own creativity. Not only has she managed to completely fill her creative side with so many endeavors, she also works during the day as an engineer. Even with all this, she still manages to be a part of quite a few Etsy teams, such as EtsyKids, EtsyMom, EtsyBloggers, and EtsyBEAD; and with all those accomplishments, Melissa also finds time to write on her blog: http://www.MadebyMelissa.blogspot.com.
Coincidentally, as I learned more about Melissa, I found that we have much in common. Not only do we both design jewelry and crochet, we are practically neighbors. Mahwah, NJ is probably only about 1/2 hr away from where I live in Westchester, NY; and if these weren't enough of a coincidence, we both share the same birthday - NOV 16! (although maybe a few years apart). Thanks Melissa for letting me browse through your shop, and next time I am driving on the Garden State (Pkwy), which I am often on, I will wave as I pass by Mahwah!
