Hello, my name is Melody and I am the designer behind MelodyArt & Designs. I have always been crazy about paper, pens, arts and crafts. When I was a baby I have been told I used to sit in my high chair and draw with crayons for hour after hour. Somewhere in my childhood I did lose confidence in my creative ability and hated anything that I drew or painted. It was different with paper though. I can eat, sleep and drink paper and I'm in 7th heaven any time I can create something new with paper. I must admit, have had quite a paper addiction over the years!
After much card making and scrap booking (and spending hundreds of dollars on paper and supplies in the process), I discovered digital scrapbooking. Suddenly I could do so much more at very little cost and though it doesn't have the same dynamic appeal that a paper scrap book has, doing it this way meant I could more easily make things fit together. In short, I discovered it was the design process I loved so much. That was the launchpad that sprung me into doing what I am doing now.
I have transferred that love of design into the creation of meaningful keepsakes. I love creating special keepsakes for all occasions, but what I enjoy most is the working relationship I have with my clients. I know that they appreciate what I do and that they love to see their treasured memories come to life for display on a wall. Keepsakes are something I know are also loved and cherished when given as a gift. So much love, thought and time goes into creating each unique one.
I am happily married and live in rural New Zealand with my husband and our two gorgeous sons (who are 4 1/2 and 2 years old). We love animals and have 2 cats and a large tropical fish tank. I hope you enjoy looking through these special keepsakes and if there is something I can help you create please let me know! I look forward to making a personalised keepsake for you soon.
