Home Projects

Before I decided I wanted to pursue Graphic Design, I wanted to be in the Interior Design industry. I love interior decorating, but after a year of college and many wise words from teachers, I decided the risk of becoming a carpet store salesman was too high. So I dropped out and shipped myself to Florida to obtain a communication in visual arts with a concentration in graphic design degree (officially, that is what it’s called) and therefore sit behind a computer screen every day. In order to keep pursuing my love for interior design, me and my husband take on home projects including the painting and restoring of old, ugly furniture and as of recently (because we just bought a home), decorating! Enjoy some of my home project posts below, and if you’d like to follow me and my home decor style on Pinterest, just visit me here.

  • Hi there. I'm Melody. Welcome to my lifestyle blog. Design is a big part of who I am, so I've decided to share some of my most fascinating happenings with people who take an interest in what I do. Enjoy my quirky design adventures- happy reading!
  • Writing a book can feel daunting and overwhelming. And while I KNOW you have the potential to become an author and self publish your own book, we all need a little help in taking the right steps to ensure our self-published book is successful and reaches our ideal readers.

One of the most valuable things a first-time self-published author can invest in is a great book coach. A book coach is one of those people you wish for as you dive into self publishing, and aren't sure if they actually exist.

I'm hear to tell you that they DO exist, and that Amy Collette (@positivelypowered) of Unleash Your Inner Author is one of my absolute favorites.

Today on the blog I share an interview with her where she shares some excellent advice for you first-time self-published authors. 📚 Link to the post in my profile!

Thanks for sharing, Amy! Last night I put away the yoga pants and traded them in for my fanciest pair of white lace pants (you heard that right) for a night of meeting some amazing new authors. One of my favorite book coaches, Amy, invited me to attend a private authors' dinner at @theperservery in Denver where I had the pleasure of meeting five up-and-coming self published authors, AND one of my very own authors who I've recently designed a book cover for (Skype can't beat face-to-face)! It was such a great night, and a fantastic reminder as to why I partner with Amy and work with such incredible people.

Coming soon: a guest post from Amy where she dishes out some valuable advice for new authors. Look for it next week!
