Yo. My name is Melissa. I am the creator, brains, and brawn behind Snitches Get Stitches. The entire process from start to shipping is handled by me.

About Me

Born in 1981, I have been crafting since I was a small child. For the past 4 years, I have been selling my creations. I have since expanded the items I make and always enjoy doing new things.

I am married and have no kids [by choice]. My husband is a tattoo artist, so obviously, I have lots. It is a passion of mine. I love reading, but I love music even more.

I am a perfectionist, which I consider to be a horrible disease!

I have this knack of learning things too quickly. It's not so great because I want to do 30 million things at one time. It's hard to do a bunch of different crafts at one time. And play guitar. And sew for

I love drinking craft beer. I also have an odd obsession with true crime, serial killers, psychosis, etc.

I like to change my hair color every week and the only makeup I wear is eyeshadow [BRIGHT EYESHADOW].

I listen to music when I do everything. I sleep to music. I am my happiest when music is involved.
