Transformation Tuesday With Melissa Phillips

    I HAVE A COMPLAINT: Melissa Phillips no longer does her blog and I don’t use Instagram. NO FAIR,MELISSA. I’m heart-broken. Come back.

      I’m so sorry Marisela…please forgive me. I hope to be back blogging again soon, for now I’m just taking baby steps getting back into the swing of things. My apologies and heartfelt thank you.

    My BFF (of 50 years, BTW) just texted me a few days ago asking me “where has Melissa gone”?? I still don’t know the answers, but trusting that God is in the midst of it all. So happy to see Melissa’s amazing handiwork, and looking forward to her return. She inspires us unlike any other (no offense to anyone, of course). Blessings and hugs to everyone at PTI (and the crafting community in general)….we gotta stick together. God is good ALL the time.
