Oh, hey! Welcome to my little corner of the web. I’m Melissa, the Graphic Designer & baking addict behind Design Eat Repeat. To put it simply: I have a ridiculous love for color, paper, and design. This little blog is simply an excuse to combine my three biggest passions of food, paper crafting & design. And take pictures of cupcakes (duh). Design Eat Repeat is a hub for paper crafters & party people who love no-fuss recipes, quick party ideas, and simple DIY/printable projects.
Although I’ve been a crafter, baker, and kitchen gadget hoarder since I was little, it wasn’t until college when I realized I could combine my love for design with my love for food and crafting. My career has taken me down some crazy roads from designing magazines for Better Homes & Gardens Food Publications, inventing & designing paper crafting tools & products (like this!) for WeR Memory Keepers, and Art Directing the Sweet Sugarbelle & Sweet Tooth Fairy food crafting product lines for big box craft stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Joanns.
I have a bachelor of fine arts degree in Graphic Design, grew up in Iowa, and am currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah. This blog started in the summer of 2011 while interning/going to college, and it continues to be a place to share my design & food inspiration after graduation. I currently work full-time designing blogs for professional Food & DIY bloggers over at my design studio, Melissa Rose Design.
When I’m not concocting up a new printable or watching kitchen gadget infomercials, you can find me exploring Utah, invading taco trucks, and messing up my kitchen. If anyone knows a good cleaner who works for baked goods, send em’ my way.
Since starting this blog in 2011, I have been abundantly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with many brands & businesses to connect consumers with their products in a fun, creative, and entertaining setting. If you’re a business or brand interested in working with Design Eat Repeat, feel free to get in touch. I love coming up with unique ideas, crafts, and recipes to promote brands I love that fall into the design/food/DIY niche.
