Hey! I’m Melinda, the creator of Spunky Dinosaur Boutique!
I have always been crafty and was raised in a family with some extremely talented crafters! In December 2018, my dad was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. My little family and I went all the way to Wisconsin from Alabama for a final visit. During our visit my dad said “you are always doing for others but never giving back to yourself”. I dwelled on that thought and on March 2, 2019 my dad surrendered to his battle with brain cancer. After spending a little time in a funk, our conversation creeped back into my head. I decided what better way to honor my dad than to give back to myself? So, I pulled out the old sewing machine, and got busy making my son some shorts. I could not resist the cute girl prints. I started making bummies, and posted them on my FB Page. I had a lot of engagement of people wanting to purchase them! So, with the support of a my best friend, Sara, Spunky Dinosaur Boutique was created. Sewing has helped keep me grounded, and I absolutely LOVE getting to share my passion with others. My husband, Chad, is the creator behind our wooden cameras! Chad has always been my biggest fan and I am really excited to share my business with him!
I work full time as a cardiac nurse, during the day, and work my business at night. I feel blessed that SBD has given me the opportunity to give back to myself and others, simultaneously!
Thank you for reading! I cannot wait to create something for YOU!
