I am a single mom of one very energetic little boy. Growing up I was more of a tomboy and an athlete than a crafter, and I spent more time on the softball field than being creative. Melanie (aka "Mom") would take me along on scrapbook crops, but I didn't really find my creative niche until I became a mom and understood how much I needed & enjoyed having creative outlets. Now I help Melanie by filling the orders, assembling all of the products she designs, and we work together as a mini team to try to accomplish as much together as other larger companies do with 10-person teams.
I started my hobby addiction at 23-years-old with photography, rubber stamps, scrapbooking and paper crafting. I was a stay-home-mom of 4 babies until I was 36, and then I went back to college to pursue two Visual Arts degrees in Graphic & Web Design. After several years in the workforce and the traumatic loss of my oldest child, Logan, my health began to decline. That led me to share my passion for what I call "zen therapy" hobbies through my YouTube channel at "Melanie B's Creative Studio". My love for sharing information and tools then helped me find the desire to develop my own line of products for our hobbies, and that's when Melanie B's Creative Supplies was born.
