Whisk + Willow is a DIY, recipe, and home inspiration blog. While W + W celebrates all things homemade, home cooked, and hand crafted, I’ll also occasionally share home trends, decor ideas, and budget-savvy tips. I hope this blog inspires you to attempt a DIY project or taste a new recipe; decorate your home or craft the perfect gift; gain an appreciation for the “forgotten arts” you wish you asked your grandmother to teach you, or just save a little money for a rainy day.

I’m Melissa — a mom, wife, writer, and marketing consultant residing in New York’s Hudson Valley, where the handmade movement thrives. I’ve always loved creating meals, gifts, and projects for friends and family, and I’m excited to share fun ideas with you! •


On occasion, I’ll add affiliate links to posts throughout this blog, but I will always mention which ones contain them. The links provide me with a small percentage of commission but do not cost you anything.
