Guest Blogger, Melanie V.

Hello, I’m Melanie and I’m excited to be guest blogging at SEI Lifestyle this week. I’m a wife, mom, blogger… and I like to make pretty things. A little bit about myself? I’m a beach girl at heart; I’m a Southern California native with family roots in Hawaii. I’m lucky to come from a long line of craftsmen and DIY-ers; although my own interest in crafts and DIY didn’t come about until I was an adult. I guess it finally caught up with me! Living a creative life is a priority for me and is something that I hope to pass on to my children. For me, it’s not just a hobby, but a way to think creatively and find happiness and satisfaction within.


When I’m not caring for my family and shuttling my two young boys to school and sports activities, I can be found puttering around my blog—blissbloomblog.com. It’s a place where I share inspirations, great ideas and my own projects. When you have a chance, stop on by!

I like to work with different mediums, but my favorite projects are ones where I change things up a bit-- using fabric instead of paper; upcycling to create a new life for something destined for a landfill; finding a way to make a “difficult” craft easier and more efficient.

Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite projects over the past few years—

I'm excited to be here this week! I will be sharing some new projects that I hope you'll enjoy. Stay tuned!

Melanie
