Behind The Blog Scene // Melanie Blodgett of You Are My Fave


I love meeting a blogger who doesn't take her work too seriously. That uses her blog to express her creativity and spread a bit of cheer to those of us who are less DIY inclined. This is why I keep coming back again and again to Melanie Blodgett's blog, You Are My Fave.

Melanie is a busy lady with a baby on the way, her work can be seen across the top US blogs and mags and she writes from a place this genuine, fun and often filled with tales of ice cream and come on, who doesn't love that? The blogging world can sometimes get a bit too serious for my liking so it's blogs like this that remind to me push the pressure aside and get back to basics - after all if you're not having fun blogging why do it at all? Thanks to Melanie (who makes crafting look easy) for sitting down to chat with us and sharing some advice she's picked up along the way...
