$20 Gift Certificate Giveaway to Inspired Life Design (This Giveaway Is Now Over)

I am so excited to be hosting a giveaway for Inspired Life Designs Etsy shop! She was kind enough to be my first Etsy store to let me host a giveaway for, but the reason I am so excited is because I have bought from her store and LOVE it.


Our son Jaxson is 4 and I had searched and searched for a year and a half to find him a belt. Every time we went to the store he would say "Momma, do they have a belt here." I then found this very cool Etsy store and he was even able to pick out which one he wanted. Jaxson picked the farm Sookie Wrap (belt).


I asked Michelle about her shop and this is what she had to say:

How did you start making Sookie Wraps (belts)? I started by making a belt for my 4 year old daughter. I couldn't find a belt for her unless it came with a pair of pants that I purchased. So I started with a double d-ring belt, but she couldn't do it herself. So I decided to go to Velcro, and the Sookie Wrap was born. It was also important to me in designing this belt that it would also grow with her, so it has 3 inches of adjustment room. There is nothing worse than buying something that you love for your child and you turn around and they have grown out of it.

When did you open you Etsy shop? I have been a member on Etsy since June 2009. I can't believe I had never come across it before then. And I opened my shop in December 2009.

Can you tell me the most popular item is you sell in your shop? For the majority of the time that I have had my shop open I have only had the Sookie Wraps (original)listed, and they have had a great response. Recently I have added other items and they are doing great as well. I added Solanna Wraps as I was getting requests from moms that wanted belts too. The buckles I love as it gets me away from the sewing machine for awhile, and the sky is the limit as to what you can put in the buckle. The toy straps and soother clips I created out of necessity for my 10 month old son and as a way of expanding my business with the supplies I was already using.


Do you do custom orders? I love custom orders. I have recently made some Sookie D Wraps for adults. Both Sookie Wrap styles are great belts if you have hand dexterity problems, physical ailments, and cognitive issues, or for rehabilitation patients.

I want to jump in here and add to that for all you mommy's of special needs kiddos. Jaxson only has one arm and he is able to put the belt on by himself with no problem.


You told me you have a new belt with a D-ring, can you tell me a little about this item? I created this belt as my daughter was having a hard time getting the original style tightened. When she was doing up her winter boots one day, they have this same system of leverage with Velcro and a d-ring. So I adapted it to the belt and made it so that it too has up to three inches of adjustment room.

What is your favorite Etsy shop other than yours? Wow, that is hard, I love everything about Etsy! I definitely can't have just one, so I would have to say some of my favorites, are; littlesaplingtoys, DreamGallery, longwinterfarm, happyfamily, buttercuppityfabric.
