Melanie Sheppard's Profile

About

Hi there. My name is Melanie and I'm the sole operator of MOD by Mel. I'm so happy you've come to take a look at my designs. Can I share with you how my Etsy shop came to be?

There are a couple of things I really really love in life (aside from my family, friends and shih tzu)...

1. Words. From an early age, I've had my nose stuck in a book. When I was young (maybe 6?) I climbed a tree in my front yard because it looked like the most serene place to sit and relax with my favorite 'Little Critters" book. The result of this little quest for nirvana was a couple of cracked ribs and a bruised ego. Nonetheless, to this day, I still search for the perfect place (always on the ground though...) to sit and relax with the perfect book. Words are my inspiration.

2. Paper. Growing up, my mom worked at a paper manufacturing factory. A couple times a year, she would bring home bags and bags of paper supplies. Oh, how I loved these days. It was like Christmas. Ruled? Colored? Gasp, is that sketch pad?! So many different paper choices - each as wonderful as the next!

3. Design. The most recent of these 3 loves is design. I fell in love with graphic design my last semester in college. Although too late to change my major (hey, I wanted out of there!), I've pursued graphic design, both professionally and personally ever since. I've created invitations for friends, marketing communications for companies, and even a few logos.

So, now that I've let you in on some of my great loves in life, you ought to understand why opening this Etsy shop has been a dream come true. I hope you enjoy looking at my things as much as I enjoy creating them.

Thanks for stopping by my shop!
