My name is Melissa, and I am an ADHD crafter.

No, really, I am.  If you don't believe me, just browse my blog and you will quickly find that I like to:
  • scrapbook
  • sew
  • make cards
  • bead
  • play with paint
  • solder
  • work with leather
  • make home décor
...not to mention that I like to write, decorate, organize, teach, shop, and eat.

Indeed, Cheap Frills is a reflection of my ADHDness, so try to keep up. *wink*

Most importantly, I am an artist.  I feel moved to create and to share what I do.  It took me 39 years to figure out what I wanted to do with this life of mine, and now I can't spend enough time using my hands to make pretty things. 

My personal style is relaxed and comfortable.  I love the look of Shabby Chic, coastal, cottage, and French country.  I enjoy recycling items and recreating them to give them new lives.  I collect milk glass, vintage jewelry, ribbon, vintage linens, and black kitties.  I love 80s music, Coke Zero, popcorn, and Dove chocolate.

I often find inspiration in the words and work of others.  I hope you find inspiration here.
