Cave Wedding HighlightsJul102014


In five days time, it will have already been eight months since my wedding! I honestly don’t know where the time has gone (mmm, finishing the children’s book, the website… not honeymooning = sadface) …

BUT! I was delightfully treated to our wedding highlight video this last week (you can view it below!), and in getting ready to finally see the unveiling of the full length feature film of our entire day, I was asked to send in some of my favorite photos! So, the last few days I’ve sat myself down to edit a few of our wedding photos that Red Pepper Shots took last November to send to our amazing videographer, Jamie, from All Because He Asked!

Melody & Stephen Wedding Highlight Video; Laguna Beach, CA from All Because He Asked.

Book Trailer / Shop Open!Jul12014


Hello my loves! I want to share with you the video book trailer for the book I illustrated, “Is There Enough?” (which is now available for purchase right here on the OhMelody Shop)! Many thanks to Jon from StayGrind Design who created the video, and Faye, Noah, & Zach Hartzell for storyboarding it out! I am so happy with how they brought my illustrations to life! This book is super sweet y’all!

Don’t forget to let me know what you think about the trailer in the comments!

Also, as I mentioned above (!), the shop on is now live! Excitement abounds, & as the sun is rising on this spectacular day, I will finally be saying goodnight (after staying up to make sure every last little detail on the shop was taken care of!). And even with that, I’ll most likely be making some small edits here and there over the course of the next few days. If you see any broken links or have issues ordering (gasp!), be sure to let me know so that I can attend to the problem as fast as humanly possible!

The shop has a teeny tiny offering of products at the moment, just the “Is There Enough?” children’s book I illustrated and finished earlier this year, and a few adorable button pin designs taking illustrations from the book! But never fear, I’ll be posting up some more fun button designs, bookmarks, prints and more soon!

And just so you don’t forget! The first 100 purchase orders for the book will not only get signed books by yours truly, but will receive one free “Mother’s Heart” button pin with their order! Much loves!
