About Me


melissa blog

Hello!  My name is Melissa,  I lived in the little town of Kutztown, PA until this past July (2015).  I am now in Washington State!   I am a college graduate, wife, and mother of three boys.  In my spare (?) time I enjoy quilting, reading, knitting, gardening and other hobbies!

    This website is great! I remember living in Kutztown enjoying Sals Pizza, amish buggies & Joey’s Salon. It feels like a lifetime ago.

    Hi Melissa! Thanks for the great pear muffin recipe. Just curious, do you have a Czech heritage? The name ‘velikova’ is very Czech.

    You don’t waste a second, do you? I am stunned by the beauty you create….the time you take….the awesome choices you make. I wish we were relatives and lived right next door to each other. I am in pain too, am a grandmother….and am beginning to come out of depression.
    I am somehow able to produce tons of food and some flowers each year to share and donate to the food bank.
    This year I want to package seeds to share w/people at the food bank. I am putting in a medicinal herb and flower garden this year.
    Hey- how can I get your blog stuff sent to me, btw? I am not hip on this jive.
    Blessings, and well wishes for ‘over the top’ inspiration.
    Oh yes, I am using apple bins for TALL raised beds. Will show you if you are interested.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I saw a link to a koala fabric that led me to this site. Do you have any koala fabric for sale?
