I’d like for you to meet Missie, who is such a sweetheart. She is the owner of Sykin’s One Stop Twilight Shop. I asked her a few questions to get to know her better.
Please tell me about yourself.
Where to start? My name is Missie. I’m 25, married to my high school sweetheart, and we have a 3 year old boy. I currently live in Washington, though I have lived in several different states in the past. My hobbies include crafts, graphic/web design, reading, and spending as much time as possible with my son. I work full time, but I’d love to be a stay-at-home mom (maybe one day!). I’m a proud TwilightMOM and enjoy getting together with fans of Twilight, Harry Potter and/or Hanson. Oh yes, they’re still together and still my favorite band! I think that’s enough about boring ole me 🙂
Please tell me about your shop.
My friend Plats (platipuses.etsy.com) was the first one to tell me about etsy. I wanted to originally sew, but I didn’t know how. This was right as the Twilight fandom was starting to take over my entire life, so I decided to start small and make some Twilight inspired jewelry. When searching on etsy, I found a few Bella Bracelets for sale, but no shops dedicated to ONLY Twilight items, so I thought it was a good time to start one. My first item was my Twilight inspired Edward Cullen Bracelet which was my spin on the typical Bella Bracelet. From there, I continued to make different “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” jewelry items, expanding to include all of the characters from Twilight, and then into non-jewelry items. I now proudly sell various Twilight inspired Fanfare, as I like to call it.
What inspires you?
Everything inspires me, and I mean it! I stay awake many nights with my head just swimming of new items I want to make. My biggest inspiration was visiting La Push with my family for the first time in June of 2008. Though I’ve lived in Washington for a third of my life, I never visited that side of the state. Forks was alright, but La Push is what really inspires me. It’s so beautiful and peaceful! Music, colors, and just day-to-day activities inspire me. I’ll look at something and go “omg, wouldn’t it be hilarious if there were fangs on that?”. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of something new. Execution is usually not nearly as awesome as it was in my head, though 🙂
Who is your favourite Twilight character and why?
Oh man…this answer is hard for me! I love Alice, Edward, and Seth. But really, I like ALL of the characters! I can’t really choose an absolute favorite. That’s just not fair to the others! 🙂
Missie has so generously offered one of my readers their choice of one item from her shop! There are so many pretty things to choose from that it will not be an easy choice.
