Melissa Graham has worked with the team for 2 years. With more than 10 years of experience in the media industry, she has covered everything from the best gifts for new homeowners to how to remove a bird’s nest or move across the country. When she’s not wearing her writer’s hat, she’s chasing her two kids around their Dallas home, perfecting her baking skills, or reading the latest best-selling thriller.

Proudest DIY

Although she doesn’t consider herself artistically talented, Melissa was pumped to put together silhouette portraits of her kids for their upstairs bathroom. Could she have uploaded their photos to Minted and had their experts do it? Sure, but this was a simple, easy way to infuse personality in the home without the extra cost.
