Wacky Wednesday Interview: SewSweetStitches

This week, I am so excited to introduce to you Melissa of Sew Sweet Stitches! You can also find Melissa blogging and tweeting! Now, let's go chat with Melissa and take a peek into her life...

What are your necessary tools?
I'd say diapers, coffee, and ice cream. Crafting? Ohh ok, then just a pair of super sharp scissors.

If you were an animal, what would you be?
Does Cookie Monster count? Okay then, a cat. One word: (ok, 4 words:) Sleep. All. Day. Long.

What is your favorite color combination?
Ooh this changes every day. Recently it was pink and orange. Now I'm kinda diggin' pink+bright blue+red.

What is your favorite drink?
Coffee. Yeah right, it's an amaretto sour! Wait maybe warm vanilla cream soda...

What could I find in your refrigerator right now?
TONS of yogurt. Yoplait makes delicious coffee-flavored yogurt.

What is the last book you read?
I just finished browsing through some Calvin and Hobbes. Good stuff. Does that count as reading?

What blogs do you like to keep up to date with?
Anything that makes me laugh: Attack of The Redneck Mommy, My Milk Toof, and of course Cake Wrecks. And the most beautiful blog eva, Nostalgic Organics' Joyful Living. That's my secret blog crush.

What is currently playing on your ipod?
I have an assorted playlist, including Eva Cassidy, System of a Down, Feist, Led Zeppelin, Patsy Cline, Deftones, NIN, Rosemary Clooney, 311... Wow I like lots of different kinds of music!

If you could trade places with someone for a day, who would it be?
My toddler. Think about it- you get to watch Disney movies all day, run around pants-less, and are actually FORCED to take a nap! And you get to eat an unlimited amount of Goldfish crackers. Does it get any better than that?

If Hollywood made a movie about you, who would play the lead role? Who else would star in it?
I've been told I look like Anne Hathaway. (I think they need their eyes checked.) Maybe Tina Fey? My brother could be played by Topher Grace, the kid from "That Seventies Show," they're EXACTLY alike! And my sister-in-law would be played by me. Cus everyone thinks we're sisters. Kinda weird, huh?

What are the first three things you do in the morning? The last three before you go to bed?
Morning: Drink coffee. repeat. The waking up part is what I do right before I'm supposed to be going back to sleep.

What time do you typically wake up and go to bed?
THEORETICALLY, I "wake up" around 10am, or whenever my kid breaks through my pillow barricade. I nap from 2-5, and try to be back in bed by 11. Yeah, I've been diagnosed with slothitis. It's very serious.

What's your favorite movie?
Gone With The Wind (okay, really Anchorman, but don't let that get out.)

What's the best part about selling online?
When you get raving feedback! Just knowing someone loves something you made enough to give you money for it!

What's the biggest challenge being in business for yourself?
Sneaking away from the most mischievous 2-year-old in the world long enough to actually MAKE something. And when I get a chance to finally craft, I'm not in a creative mood.

Tell us a little about how you manage your time.
Yeah, right. See above. :)
