I’m Melissa Mortenson, a Riley Blake Designs fabric designer, blogger & published author.
I like to design things, like fabric, printables, and projects. I’m also a Mom and a Maker. I am like most of you, just trying to do my best every day. I find joy in creating, if you do too, then I hope that you find something here to bring a little “happy” to your life.
