Behind the Mix: Melissa

Hi Mixbookers! Today we're bringing you a different type of blog post. We know that we've given you plenty of tips, tricks, and inspiration for your Mixbook projects, but in this post, we decided to pull back the Mixbook "curtain." Today, we bring you our first ever Mixbooker Staff profile! You know our products and our editor, but here's your chance to get to know the special people who make Mixbook possible.

Introducing Melissa, our Director of Merchandising
Director of MerchandisingHow long have you worked at Mixbook? Since November 2011. What's your favorite thing about working at Mixbook? The people. I genuinely like every person I work with. How long did it take for you to order your first project? 2 weeks. If you could have one super power, what would it be and why? Leap tall buildings in a single bound because I'm short. What is something you are currently working on for the company and why are you excited about it? Our new holiday cards collection. We released over 500 new themes. Our cards offering covers a variety of styles - classic, vintage, rustic, whimsical and modern, there is something for everyone. My favorite cards are the dress up cards, where you can embellish faces with stickers. Here's my holiday card. The photo was taken on a hike at Lake Tahoe. Sean and TrevorWhat is your favorite hobby and how did you get into it? I love crafting and making things. My mother taught me how to sew and crochet. I grew up watching her making things like clothes, silk flowers, pillows and blankets.
