Welcome to Saturday & another designer interview; this week we're going to meet Misty Miller of Designs by Snowlady!
Tell us a little about yourself & your family. I've been married to my high school sweetheart, Dan, for 20 years. We have twin boys, Jacob and Caleb, who are 14. We also have a cat, Kimmie, that we adopted a couple of years ago. I am a Special Education Teacher. I teach 7th & 8th grade students in the areas of language arts and math.
What part of designing comes easiest to you? I love finding color palettes. I just wish I had the time for all of them. :) When I'm creating a kit, I always do the papers first. They seem the easiest for me to do.
If you’re running low on design mojo, how do you kick-start your creativity? I start looking at color palettes and images. Sometimes I type a random word into Google to see what images come up. Other times I think about what pictures I need to scrap and create a kit for those. Sometimes my ideas come from Kleenex boxes. They have great colors and designs.
What is your favorite kit you've designed? My favorite kit is Camping in the Woods. My family loves to camp with our pop-up camper. I couldn't find any pop-up templates out there, so I had to make my own.
What kits/products do you have in the works? I've started one called Serenity that I need to finish. I found a great palette for another fall kit that I hope to do. I will also be working on a Christmas kit soon.
What do you like to do for fun? For fun, my family does a lot of camping and hiking. Lately though it's been cross country meets for one son and soccer games for the other. I also love to read in my spare time. Hubby and I also try to have date night once a week.
Slippers or barefoot? I love my slippers!
If you could trade places with any person (living or dead) for a week who would you pick & why? I would love to trade places with Laura Ingalls Wilder. I would love living back in the late 1800's/early 1900's to try the pioneer way of life.
Which would you pick…more money or more time? I would pick more time. There just never seems to be enough to do everything I want to do.
What would I find in your refrigerator right now? Right now: milk, juice (3 kinds), water, fruit, cucumber, butter, leftover chicken, pudding, root beer, cheese, deli meat, condiments, things that need thrown out, and Skinny Cow chocolate bars.
