{Meet the Challenger} Sweet Mady {paper + gifts}

April 17th, 2012 in designer's challenge

Today we are back with our latest challenger, Michelle from Sweet Mady {paper + gifts}.  I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle last year when she planned a local “Dreamers Into Doers” event for the Northern Virginia party chics and vendor.  I completely love her designer personalized shirts, lunch boxes, aprons, matching party ware and just about anything else you can imagine.

1.   What is your favorite color?


2. Are you a beach or pool person?

As long as I have 50 sunblock and an umbrella I’ll sit on a beach all day!  There is nothing ran about me.

3.  Do you still ride roller coasters?


4.  What is your favorite vacation spot?

Disney. I can’t help it, I love it there!  2nd would be an empty beach, still under that umbrella!  

5.  What is your most embarrassing moment?

Oh goodness, way too many too count!

6.  What is your favorite sound?

My kids hysterically giggling and the ocean         

7.  What would you describe as your design style?  

Im not sure my style would fall under a specific type. My true love is designing for kids, so I try to make all of my designs playful and colorful.                                

8.  Who is your biggest inspiration?

For designs, my kids. Most of my designs come from what they and their friends love               

9.   If you could have a theme song, what would it be?

Dancing Queen. I love to dance with my kids and my girlfriends.                          

10.  If you could pick any reality TV star that relates to you, who would it be?

Totally not comparing myself here but I adore Tori Spelling.  I love that she goes for her dreams while putting her kids first each step of the way.  My favorite thing about her show is watching her balance family and business.                                              

11.  What’s a motto you live by?  

It’s simple and I say it a thousand times a day to my kids. Be Kind.
