ETSY | Practical Inspirations {review & giveaway}

I came across the sweetest dresses that would perfectly compliment any girl with graceful simplicity at the Etsy store Practical Inspirations. These lovely dresses are quaint enough for every day wear but also fancy enough to be worn for those special occasions.

I was blessed with the opportunity to review one of these lovely dresses for my daughter. And it has beyond met my expectations! This dress like the others found at this store are sewn so that a child can continue to grow with the dress from age 2 to 5 years old.  This dress is very versatile as my daughter can wear a shirt long or short sleeved under it as well as a cardigan over it.

Not only dresses can be found at Practical Inspirations but also very whimsical  texture books that are perfect for any baby, infant, or toddler. I honestly can’t wait too see what wonderful things will be added next!

I enjoyed getting to know Kim creator and seamstress behind Practical Inspirations and hope you do to with my Etsy Meet Greet questions below. Read on!

1.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been?

I had hear about Etsy from a friend and had been working on publishing my texture book for several years with no avail and decided to try and “self-publish” if you will on this site.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?
I enjoy the practicality of creating beautiful things, they are both functional and pleasing to the senses.  I enjoy seeing children grow and explore their world.  It is always an adventure and I enjoy finding new ways to express my creativity.

3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?

I teach sewing at my local sewing center, enjoy time with my kids, read, try to keep in shape, and enjoy the little moments that slip through your fingers too quickly.

4. What inspires you?

Like my shop says “Practical Inspiration”.  I am constantly looking at things and creating better, more practical solutions with a hint of whimsy.

5.In five years you’d like to be…?

I would like to have a successful internet business that allows me the freedom to be home as well as the freedom to share and help others with their practical solutions.
