May name is Melisa and I am a 25 year old wife, blogger, shop owner, sister, crafter and adventurer. I love to create and I long to bring beauty to this world. 

I spent the first four years of my life living in Brazil, where I learned Portuguese and gained my love for the beach, fresh fruit and beautiful scenery. I grew up in New Mexico, which was a drastic difference, but spent most Summers visiting my Dad in Rio. I would eventually meet Elisha, my husband, while walking the halls of my high school. We had a class next to each other and each day I would hope that we'd bump into each other so we could talk. One day it finally happened, we dated and eight years later we decided to get engaged. This last November we got married and it's been all I could have dreamed of.

We are currently residing in the beautiful state of Texas. Elisha is a youth pastor and I help run a Senior Center. We get to do what we love and even better, we get to do it together. Elisha is currently training for his first Iron Man and I can't wait to cheer him on with Gretchen, the newest addition to our little family. Gretch is the sweetest doxie, who loves cuddles, sunbathing on the couch and looking unbearably cute.

The PS shop is my way of turning inspiration into something tangible. I started the shop with only four knitted headbands, in 2009. I was completely consumed by the idea of women being able to wear something that I created, and feeling beautiful because of it. I have loved every moment of creating and curating my shop. We offer everything from jewelry and hair accessories, to paper goods and blankets! I love sharing this journey with each of you and even meeting some of you at craft fairs and other events. I do all of my events with my sister Adrienne, who loves meeting you all too! You can expect to see us this year at the Renegade Craft Fair Winter Market. 

Have an event in your city, you'd think we'd be a great fit for? Let us know!

I also offer design services. I began this with the intention of helping fellow bloggers who were in need of creating a space that was all their own. I didn't have a ton (read any) help when I first started, so I want to provide an affordable option for bloggers in need. You can read a full list of my design services here.
