Hey! I'm Melissa, and Welcome to my Good Life!

I am, first and foremost, a work in progress.

I started my creative career in my 40's amidst a whole bunch of life changes. Between a new baby, three growing sons, my day job in venture capital, and a brand new house, I wanted something to do that wasn't about working, parenting, or chores. I needed an outlet.
Enter: the vinyl cutter and heat press!
I have four amazing sons who happily offer their input on many of my products, so everything comes kid-tested and... well, kid approved. I love seeing the looks on their faces when I tell them about TGLC, and how yes, people pay me for my creations! I want to show them that they can do anything with hard work and a little support, just like their mom.
My husband, Carl, has been my biggest supporter.  I'd like to think I could do this without him, but I'm not sure I could -- nor would I want to. Our blended family makes me smile every day!
I have a wonderful family, great friends, and a wealth of life experiences to draw from. I was driving with a car full of family one day after going out for dinner.  They were a rowdy bunch and drove me bananas but while in the car I realized that everything most important to was within arms reach at that moment. I thought, "Wow, what a good life I have." It was from that moment of gratitude that The Good Life Creations was born. I am blessed with a good life, and I would love to share it with all of you.  The Good Life started as a vision and came to fruition with support and help from many.  So grateful for you all!
I want to help celebrate what makes your life good, and hear how you make your life - and the lives of others - better. 
Thanks for stopping by!
