There Is Room For All of US {Melissa Loves}

I am a big believer that there is room for everyone when it comes to your gifts and what you have to offer this world.

Your gifts are beautiful and big…and so is this world.

Awhile ago I wrote THIS post about making room for creative people around you.

I hope you will join me with this new series about moving over and making room for others.

For this first post I wanted to show off the beautiful gifts of Melissa de la Fuente.

I met Melissa at Alt a few years ago and was immediately drawn to her and her beautiful spirit.

I didn’t know at the time about her popular blog or her incredible jewelry.

She is warm, kind and humble.

Those awesome Johnson & Johnson commercials?

Melissa has been in them and her voice is heard is some of them too.

She has an amazing eye for design and style and her handmade jewelry makes me swoon.

Take a peek…

Are you drooling?

I just started THIS Pinterest board where I will be sharing the works of artists and creative hearts.

I hope you will follow along and also share your creations with me.

If you have a business, website, Etsy shop etc. that you would like to share please link in the comments so we can all check you out too!

    I love Melissa’s jewelry! I pinned one of her necklaces awhile back, but there was no source, so I’m glad to find out how I can get my hands on some of her work:)

    Here is my etsy shop: I use “upcycled” sweaters, buttons, beads and bits of fabric to create huggable owl friends.

    I love the simplistic nature, it’s my favorite.
    Thank you for sharing and being so open and gracious. It’s been difficult, most have been supportive, some kinda clueless, which is fine, it’s not their “thing” and some just downright mean. It’s great to have a heathy group of women sharing their gifts.
    I have an etsy shop and that has a lot of my recent creations, bags cuffs, aprons.

    Thank you Jeanne for the reminder that there is room for all…so encouraging and so easy to become defeated in believing the lie that there is not enough room… but its just that. a lie. Creativity is such a beautiful thing and part of so many people and expressed in amazingly diverse ways!:) Thanks for sharing Melissa’s work… it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! 🙂

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to share!:)

    Ah, Jeanne. You are such a beautiful soul, hun. I am truly honored to be included in this beautiful series. It makes my heart glad and has completely made my whole month to be thought of the way you have described me here. Also, since my work is new and this venture is new…it means the world to me to have the support and encouragement from a lovely, such as you. Thanks for all the kind comments everyone, I am off to check out all your shops! A HUGE hug and many kisses to you, beautiful Jeanne.
    ps I totally agree, by the way. What is that quote?……ah yes,
    “A candle loses none of its light by lighting another candle.” 🙂

    the simplicity and straightforwardness of Melissa’s jewelry touches my soul! Jeanne, you are so right and we can’t say it enough-there is room for all of us. I have an etsy shop, mainly vintage, but I have one section “things I make” that features some of my handmade lighting etc. thank you, thank you.
