A Handmade Dream

Hello all!

I'm Melissa. I'm a chicken loving, bread baking, furniture painting Mom of 4 young kids. I also am a professional food blogger and esty shop owner!

My Etsy shop is the handmade extension of my blog, Bless this Mess (

Bless this Mess, is an honest picture of a happy small town life. You’ll find posts about raising backyard chickens, remodeling our house while living in the mess and lots and lots of family-friendly recipes, dessert included.

This shop is the creative extension of the dream that I pursue in daily life - a life and shop full of beauty, craftiness, industry, quality, and fun.

I hope you'll take the time to poke around both of my internet stomping grounds!
