Hi, I'm Melissa. I'm a vintage lover, longtime sewing enthusiast, dedicated thrift shopper, and avid DIY-er. After discovering the world of blogging, I started Mint Green Sewing Machine (Formerly Scavenger Hunt) in 2012 as a way to share my passions for crafting, sewing and vintage. If you'd like an idea of what this blog is about, check out a few of my favorite posts:
I currently live on the lovely central coast of California with my husband Phillip and our two kitties, Ruby and Bosley. By day, I work and go to school for graphic and web design (check out my portfolio here). In my free time I work on blogging and running my two Etsy shops: Paper Doll Patterns (vintage patterns) and Hello Camellia (handmade goodies). Phillip and I also sell our vintage finds in an antique mall in Los Alamos, California.
I love meeting new friends who share my passions, so feel please feel free to comment or email me, I'm happy to hear from you!
