Michelle was kind enough to tolerate my ridiculous "interview" questions:
Q. How old were you when you first kissed someone?
A. I was twelve in a group of friends playing "spin the bottle." I had to kiss a boy -ewe! It was just plain awkard in the middle of puberty.
Q. Do you have any pets?
A. I run with 3 dainty toy poodles and a peekapoo. Two of them are granny poodles.
Q. What are your hobbies? How do you spend your time?
A. I make sock creatures and enjoy domestic endeavers. I can easily entertain myself. I also like to write and dabble as a novice in digital art.
Q. If you had three wishes, would you be one of those people who wished for more wishes? Or would you just take the three and be happy?
A. I would take three and be happy.
Q. When did you stop coloring?
A. I haven't. I really like coloring mandalas. There are two local artists who make coloring books that are awesome: Emily Rosell and Sue Coccia.
Q. Do you sew?
A. Yes - a bit too much. I'm obsessed with it and often have to force myself to do other activities.
Q. If you could start a business doing anything in the world - what would it be?
A. I'd have a trendy little store front in Seattle where I would sell my line of sock creatures and plush - including crazy soft sculptured dioramas.
I would also lead expiditions around the world searching for the potato bunny. Now that would be cool!
