Hi! Welcome to my website Mellobi Designs. Thank you for being here!
My name is Melissa and I’m from Suriname, South America. Born and raised in this tropical paradise. The native language here is Dutch but most people are also fluent in English. We also have a dialect that’s called Surinamese. And here is where my alias comes from. I made it a couple of years ago. Back when I was first introduced to pc’s and the internet.
Lobi is Surinamese for love. I added my nickname to it and it became Mellobi. Smart huh 😉
I never changed it because it is very unique. I am yet to see it somewhere else. And this makes it a great brand name too. So basically my brand name Mellobi Designs means Mel loves designs. Kind of fits. I love making art, and designing graphics.
The thing is Suriname is a third world country, and a lot of the stuff that interest me like art supplies and planner stuff isn’t available here in stores. We don’t have a Michaels or any craft store 😭 I buy everything online and then wait 2 weeks for it to get here. This is how I learned to make my own stickers and planner inserts. I bought a Silhouette Portrait machine and started making stickers for my planners. Love love love 💗 it!
So then I thought maybe there are more people like me that like to use the stuff they buy right away. Guess what. There are! And here we are. At my online store with only digital products. Anything you buy you can download and use right away. No shipping cost which helps keep the price low. I am in the process of finishing up some designs to put in the store. To stay in the loop and receive discounts you can sign up for my newsletter.
I hope you like what you see and please leave me a nice comment. I appreciate you coming by to take a look.
