Q: What or who would you dedicate this collection to? Do you have an inspiration board?
A:My original thoughts didn’t include dedicating it to anyone in particular, but if I had to choose I would say my family. They are, without a doubt, the apple(s) of my eye. I don’t typically set up inspiration boards for a particular line of fabric or project, but I do love to use inspiration boards especially for color. I am always fascinated by what colors people choose to put together.
Q: What is your favorite project using this collection?
A:Well, there are lots of new projects that my team and I have been working on with this line. We have kept most of them secret, but I will show you some sneaky peeks of some of my favorite things…
Q: If time travel became possible, what year would you want to be in?
A:I would want to visit (but let’s be clear, just visit!) the late 1700’s or early 1800’s and meet Jane Austen. I am a huge fan of her books. And let’s be honest, what girl doesn’t sometimes want to wear gloves, a fancy dress and carry a parasol? But, in truth, I love the here and now. I love modern day cleanliness and I love computers and technology.
Q:If you had to change your first name what would you change it to?
A:You know, I have never wanted to change my name. I remember in elementary school when everyone pretended they had a different name or a different spelling of their name. I have always loved my name. But if I HAD to? I think I would pick Miranda. She is one of my favorite Shakespeare characters. And, it’s pretty close to Amanda.
Q:What was your favorite childhood TV show?
A:Scooby-Doo. I love that stinkin’ show! Even still. I am so glad that it has crossed generations and that my children love it as much as I (still) do.
Q:Who is the most famous person you have ever met?
A:I have seen a lot of famous people in person but never actually MET one. One day I was at Disneyland and they had a parade (which we skipped to get on some rides). After the parade we saw Ted Danson, Rhea Perlman, John Goodman, Danny Devito, and a host of other celebs riding rides. I found out later that it had been a parade of movie and TV stars. Guess we should have watched that one!!!
Q:What is your favorite App to play on your phone?
A:Does Facebook count as an app? If not, I would pick Pinterest. And if neither of those are technically apps, I would say Where’s my Water?. I love to play that with my kids.
Q:If you could marry a technology, what would it be?
A:Definitely my iPhone. In fact, I think in some countries we might technically be married.
