About Me

Hi! I’m Melissa.

Welcome to my little piece of the world wide web. So glad you decided to stop by and read a little bit about me.

I’m the author and creator here at Today’s Creative Ideas (formerly This Girl’s Life Blog). I currently reside in Northern Kentucky, with my loving husband of 18+ years, our beautiful 13-year-old daughter, and our fur baby Lucy (chocolate lab).

We are a military family and move quite often. That is what brought us here to Northern, KY (just outside Cincinnati). Who knows where we will end up next, but as always, it is sure to be an adventure. We like to keep life light-hearted and fun!

Being a military family is what initially made me start this blog. It was our first big move away from family (from TN to Kansas).

We had always been lucky and stationed within a couple of hours from home. I wanted a way to keep everyone updated on our life as our daughter was just 3 at the time. Nine plus years later it has turned from the initial hobby blog to a small business. I love it and I love sharing my thoughts and ideas with all of you.

Being creative is a passion of mine and I hope you will find that this blog gives you some inspiration and creativity too.

Today’s Creative Ideas is a collaboration of DIY projects for the home, adult and kid crafts, yummy recipes, and home and life resources. All (fairly) easy ideas for the busy mom {and dad too}.

Thanks so much to all of you that are reading and commenting. You guys are the best!

Follow me on Instagram, this is where I share the most behind the scenes of my life {mostly my love of home decorating} but of course a whole lot of our newest family member Lucy too.
