Desert Bloom

Around here it's always a great day when new fabric arrives!

My order of Desert Bloom from Riley Blake is finally here, and I am even MORE in love with it in person than I was from the pictures!

Since I'm a small shop, I am unable to offer all of the prints - however I selected my favorites to add to my Etsy Shop My Meller!

And of course the FQ Bundles!

I can think of so many possibilities for this line!  So many ideas..not nearly enough time!

I'm off to dream about these beautiful poppies!

Flannel Sale

Oh the leaves are starting to turn and the weather is getting cooler.  That can only mean 1 thing!  Fall is here!

When I think of fall, I think of curling up with a quilt and a warm cup of tea (or are there any Pumpkin Spice Latte lovers out there?!).

What better type of quilt in this type of weather, then a toasty warm rag quilt.  As you can tell from my past posts, rag quilts are one of my FAVORITE things to make.

Right now I have some great flannels in my Etsy Shop, how fun are these colors?

And for the rest of the month of September, any order of flannel is 10% off with the code COZY10.

Happy Monday #26

Usually I'm all about a Happy Monday - but this was too cute not to share!

Happy Monday!

**Not my photo.  Looks like it features a pumpkin Hat from Blanca's Crafts.  But someone sent me this pic and I HAD to share!**

Happy Monday - Doggy Version

I don't take credit for this - but I found it adorable.

Happy Monday!

13 January 2016


Is everyone else hunkered down for the month of January?  Winter in northern Wisconsin took its sweet time getting here this year.  We barely had a dusting of snow in order to have a White Christmas.  (This is in a place that had record setting snow on Halloween when I was a little girl!)

However, old man winter has decided to make up for the delay by providing us FRIGID temperatures!  Monday morning was -19.  And yes that is nineteen BELOW zero!

Remind me again why I live here???

Since I can't afford a trip to Florida right now, I guess there's only one thing to do!


Much to hubby's excitement - I am finally making him his very own quilt!  I knew I wouldn't have it finished for Christmas, so I put the scraps of what I had started in a box with a spool of thread and wrapped that for him!  He was really perplexed until he put it together and said "Are you making me a quilt????"  I've been working on it on weekends, and I think it looks pretty good laid out in the family room.

He loves it, especially the mushroom print.  Which I knew he would love.  These Woodwinked by Dear Stella fabrics are masculine enough that even though the "solids" are little heart prints (awwwww) it doesn't seem girly!

And bonus for me, when it's done it will get to reside on the Quilt Rack my dad built me for Christmas!  Yay!!

What is everyone else working on this month?

Stocking my Etsy Shop

With my day job I haven't been able to give as much attention to my Etsy shop as I want to.  So this week I have been looking at all of the fabrics out there trying to decide what I should bring in next!

Have you guys seen the new Riley Blake Crayola fabrics that are coming out in June 2016?  I am super excited to announce that I will have them available in my shop!!  So far I have the following yardage patterns on order for MyMeller!

Aren't they all adorable???  Since there are limited quantities available I'm taking pre-orders through my blog until January 31st.  Pre-order will guarantee the fabric you want as well as a 10% discount from my Etsy list price of $8.50/yard + shipping!  All you have to do is leave a comment along with what you want and make sure I have your email address.  I will send your a PayPal invoice upon receiving your order & the day I receive the fabric in - your's will be shipped out!

Anything else you'd like to see added to my shop?  Let me know in the comments!!

Happy Friday!

Nexxus VoxBox

Nexxus VoxBox - Diametress

I've got another amazing VoxBox to share with you & this one included FULL SIZE Nexxus Shampoo, Conditioner, and Leave in Conditioning Creme!

I was super excited when I received a Pre-Survey from Influenster about what type of Nexxus product would work best for me.  I have pretty fine hair - so I received the Diametress which helps build volume and thicker looking hair.  The description of the shampoo is below

 "About the Product
  • Nexxus Diametress Volume Rebalancing Shampoo helps create volume for fine and flat hair
  • Increases the diameter of each strand
  • Enhances volume for thicker, fuller looking hair
  • Silicone-free formula, primes hair for a rich conditioning next step
  • Cleanses, replenishes nutrients, and provides detangling benefits weightlessly without excess residue"
First off - L.O.V.E the smell.  Awesome!  Its fresh and clean and girly, but without the overwhelming floral scent you can sometimes get from shampoos.  I did notice it didn't get as bubbly as my normal shampoo, but left my hair feeling super soft.

Instead of my normal product, I decided to just use the Nexxus so I could get a true reflection of how it works.  I was nervous to use the leave in conditioner because I've never used one before, but it didn't leave my hair feeling greasy or weighed down at all.  After styling my hair, it was NOTICEABLY less frizzy and I didn't even need to use my flat iron.

Look how smooth that hair is!  Ignore the Minon Kleenex box - LOL

How do I like it?  Well walking back to my desk after lunch the other day, I saw my reflection & thought to myself "I love my hair!"  Caught myself & remembered today I used my Nexxus!  Doesn't get much better than that!!!  And after using it a week, I notice the softness in my hair still the next morning.  I guess I don't specifically notice more volume - but as long as its lookin' good - I call this a success!

Since I started using the Diametress I noticed it's available at Walmart and its even on Amazon - I highly recommend trying it out!  Interest in testing products like these?  Let me know in your comments and I can forward an invite to you.  Its that easy!
