Melissa Dennis

Short Bio

Hey friends! I'm Melissa, and I am so thrilled to be a part of this crazy talented team. I am a full time working mom to two littles, and they love to keep me on my toes. I have been crafting/creating all my life. Do you remember the children's magazine "Highlights?!" My mother got me a subscription as a kid, and I would be so pumped to open up a new issue to the "arts & crafts" section. I would use every empty paper towel tube I could find and craft all day. If I am not trying to sneak off to my craft room, you can find me in my garden, begging my plants to grow, or chasing my kiddos around. My hubby and I are in the season of raising these little babes, so when we finally meet up at the end of the day we love to watch "Fixer Upper," and then hunt for farm houses online we think we could redo...but then I remember how much I love Target and I can't move to far out in the country!

Where are you from?

Charleston, SC

How long have you been a Silhouette user?

I have been using Silhouette for over 2 years now, and still learn something new every day!

What kind of materials or media do you use most?

I love all things vinyl!

Where do you find your inspiration?

Without a doubt I get all of my crafty genes from my mother! There isn't much she can't do! I know I can always come to her when I hit a crafting road block!

Which Silhouette product do you like or use the most?

Well, for obvious reasons, the Premium Blade! I never worry about it not being able to hold up for one of my projects & it always gets the job done!

Fun Facts about me

  • In 5th grade I entered a pageant and won...I was crowned "Little Miss Thomas Sumter" and then I retired after that!
  • I wanted to be a pilot in my teen years, so I took some flying lessons. It scared me so bad when I actually got to fly the plane that I decided I needed a new dream.
  • My new puppy has his own Instagram account, & already is way cooler & has more followers than me!
