About Me

Hi! I’m Melissa and I’m so glad you’ve found your way to my little corner of the internet!

I’m a work at home, homeschooling mom to three little boys.  I’m married to an amazing Army man and making the most of our endless moves. I love anything creative-I have a passion for art, interior and fashion design, I love creating new from old, and finding ways to make life beautiful on a budget. This blog started as an outlet for me during one of my husband’s deployments and has transformed my life in ways unimaginable.  It has blessed me with new friends, new opportunities, and encouraged me to push my limits personally and professionally.

Thank you for spending your time here with me, be sure to join me and follow along over on Instagram and Facebook!

For more information about me and my recipe and project development services, please find me at MelissaRiker.com.

    I love your headboard potting bench project. Thanks for sharing. And, many thanks for your husband’s military service and your support as a military spouse. Best Wishes, from an Air Force wife and mother
