Reusable Sandwich Set Give Away

AND THE WINNER IS: JENN S!!
CONGRATULATIONS!!

Introducing Prairie Wind Designs an amazing shop on Etsy! Misti has beautiful bags, toddler dresses and more.


*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I grew up on a farm in southwest Kansas. I currently live in Frenchtown, Montana with my husband, two adorable children, ages 6 and 3, and our golden retriever, Prairie. I guess you could say I love wide open spaces, from the mountains of Big Sky Country to the wheat fields of Kansas.


*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
I love the prairie. I feel it has played a big part in shaping me into the person I am today. Growing up working the ground and having faith the seeds you plant today will be the harvest you reap tomorrow. With the prairie comes wind and the winds of change have blown my life in many directions. First separating me from those Kansas sunsets to find myself among the majestic mountains of Montana. Then, after meeting and marrying my best friend, saying goodbye as he went Iraq. It was staying up those
lonely nights that I found comfort in my sewing machine. After my husband returned, I became a stay at home mom and have enjoyed making things for and with my children. Several friends talked me into doing some local farmer's markets and an Etsy shop just seemed like the next step.

*What types of items do you have? Do you have something new you will be adding?
My items are all things I have created with fabric. I have a range of items from purses and diaper bags to barnyard coloring wallets for the little ones. I have many ecofriendly and upcycled items from sandwich and snack bags, reusable grocery bags and toddler dresses that I upcycle from previously loved men's shirts.


*What do you like about being a seller?
The connections you make with people. Montana can get lonely at times. The people I have met through our Montana Etsy Team and the other artists are so supportive and it is my link to the rest of the world.

*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
Fabric, fabric, and yes, more fabric. Yet another reason to start my Etsy shop - a place to go with some of my fabric. Or was it a reason to buy more? I forget.

*What motivates or inspires you to create?
I love creating something with my hands for someone else. I enjoying thinking about that person as I am creating each piece and when it is complete, I feel like I have given a piece of myself.

*What is your favorite on-line shop?
Why, Etsy of course. I try to make most of my purchases from other Etsians.

*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
This adorable little red toile dress. I upcycled it from a pair of capri pants. (which was a challenge in itself) I had so much fun with this I kept going to make a matching bag. I love giving something that has been cast away a new life.
