About Us

Hey Y'all.  I'm Melissa Dark! I'm so glad you're here!

I believe that the grass is greener where you water it. 


I write this little blog to mark down all of the fun gifts that my family lives as we navigate life between the "already" and the "not yet." We want to enjoy everyday (even if it's just the little things!) and not live waiting for the ever-illusive "someday" when we have more money, or more time, or when things are easier.

I think today is a gift. If you take some time to really look around you, you'll usually find that the grass is green right where you are. Soak it in!

I love to make pretty things.


I really love to teach people to make pretty things themselves! 

I think that making things and spending time with your tribe makes life much richer.

I teach to build creativity and community.


Two of my favorite things.
