I like to be comfortable.

Yep, I said it. I'm busy—mom to two human littles, two pups, and four chickens; wife to an outdoorsman hubby; passionate creator and handmaker. Most of the time I’m lucky if I get to take a shower, change into a clean t shirt and pair of yoga pants. I know I'm not the only one out there.

Sound familiar? Oh yeah… I sooooo just called you out.

I’m Melissa Lyons, mother and wife extraordinaire, mom t-shirt designer and do-it-yourselfer, and expert Twinkie eater. (Oops...did I just say that out loud?) *This is probably a great place to note that I have a avid sweet tooth and a deep appreciation for coffee. (Because if you can survive motherhood without coffee, you deserve an award or something.)

I design funny mom t-shirts inspired by honest mom moments. Each and every mom shirt found on Grins & Grace® is tasteful, yet a little sarcastic, and totally grin-worthy. Every one features a hand drawn design that comes directly from my home studio (a.k.a. spare bedroom) in North Carolina.

Grins & Grace® began as a means to allow me to put my creative vibes to work, yet still stay at home with my littles. The business name is directly inspired by my giggly little girl who is always full of smiles, and whose middle name also happens to be Grace! 

Thanks for getting to know the mom behind the designs! Feel free to check out our shop or join the Grins & Grace mom club! You'll gain access to super special discounts and early info on sales!
