What’s your name? (Take all the time you need for this one.)

Ms. Michelle Romo

 Would you rather travel by plane, train, car or ship?

Car! The potential for finding beef jerky is higher via this mode of transportation. 

 I live…

awesomely – in Eagle Rock, CA – with my lovely cat children – and sweet bearded husband.

 I spend most of my work day…

drawing cute things with funny faces. 

 My favorite childhood memory is…

baking cookies and watching ice skating with my mom in the winter time.

 You can find me eating…

COFFEE! for breakfast.


 How many times do you usually hit the snooze button after your alarm goes off?

A million billion times. My actual sleep / snooze button ratio is 1:1.

 Do people tell you that you resemble anyone famous?

No! But in one of those celebrity look-a-like apps I got Robert Downey Jr. once, does that count?

 Is there a story behind your name (are you named after anyone)?

My parents liked The Beatles song Michelle, they thought it was a good idea to give that name to me.

 How long can food be on the ground and still be fair game for eating?

Man. Forever? I am a horrible offender.

On my lunch break, you can find me?

Trying to eat a salad and not frown about it with 2-3 lovely office lady friends.

People describe me as…

a weirdo, but a sweet weirdo.

I walk into work every day with…

motivation to get things done!

My favorite dessert is…

crème brûlée

What is your zodiac sign?


Do you like surprises or to be surprised?

I like to be surprised. Pleasantly – of course.

Anything comments about your Holiday products for Land of Nod?

I am so excited about all of the products! The plush are everything I've ever hoped and dreamed of. And everyone at Land of Nod that I have worked with is so genuinely sweet and wonderful!

    Hooray! I love this interview. And I love Michelle’s work. Can’t wait to pick up some of her holiday goodies for my kiddos. And totally small world…but I printed the darling napkins that Michelle designed for her wedding. To date, it’s still my favorite printing job I’ve done.

    Congrats on such a cute collection, Michelle!
