326 hello's:

  1. Hello! Boy I would just love everything in your little present - thanks for doing this!

    If I were stuck on an island, i would want...either watercolors or a really big sarong - keep the heat out, stay fashionable and un-sunburt, and use it as a sail! :)

    ReplyDelete
  2. wow, this is kind of a tough one, but i think i would have to go with lots and lots of sunscreen, not the most fun thing, but i picked it because i would burn to a crisp if i was in the sun all day!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'd have to have my iPod. I'd go crazy without my music. Please enter me thanks!! The package looks beautiful! emilieej[at]yahoo[dot]com

  4. Hmmm... let's see. If I were stuck on a desert island, I would absolutely have to have a notebook and pencil. Something to draw on, write down my feelings, hopes & dreams on, & a place to write a love note to my husband.

    ReplyDelete
  5. If I were stuck on a desert island, I would have to have a copy of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. My absolute favorite book!

    Love your blog!
    laura.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'd take out an old dictionary from the library with me. The smell of old books is something I adore and I love type and words. I could learn something new everyday and if I were rescued, I'd be pretty articulate ;)

    ReplyDelete
  8. i'd really love to win this! (:
    this is tough, but i guess if i were stuck on a deserted island i'd want to have a camera, specifically a polaroid camera and a million pack of polaroid film.
    Even if it's deserted it's still an island right? probably a pretty one too. lol (:

    janeherself@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  9. hmm, i'd have to say, that if i could only have one thing, it'd have to be a friend ... i'd hate to explore the island alone! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    great question....i think if i were stuck on an island, i would have to have books and magazines. i would be lost without them!

    ReplyDelete

    Lovely giveaway Danni!

    ReplyDelete
  20. ooh my! what a lovely little package of goodies!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Though most people would think of something practical, I would opt to have my digital slr camera with me on the island!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is the most lovely giveaway ever!!

    If I couldn't have my favorite people with me on a desert island, then I would have to have my laptop and high speed internet :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. My dog Chance! He could protect me from the local flora and fauna and maybe even help me find dinner. He'd keep me company and would make a good pillow too!

    whitepoppy@rfassoc.com

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would like either a book or a sketch pad.
    Assuming water is a non-issue.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, well that's easy. I would absolutely have to have a Target store. Not only would it provide food, clothing, makeup and jewelry, it's also a job possibility! Plus when I get bored with being stuck there I'll hitch a ride home on the delivery helicopter.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would have to have a water pump... so I could drink water. :) love this giveaway whoever gets this one is a lucky duck!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a fun giveaway, Danni! If I were on a desert island, I would have to have my Bible. No doubt about it. For a second there I thought- rice! so I can make sushi!... but really.... that's just silly. The Bible is the food I will need most if I were stuck alone on a desert island!

    ReplyDelete
  42. this give-away is fantastic! to be so lucky and find this in my mailbox!
    ++++
    desert island:
    blank notebook.
    black ink pen.

    thanks for this! love, lindsay

    ReplyDelete
  43. Such inspiration - I'm in love! Thank you for the opportunity. The one thing I couldn't live without on an island would be Burt's Bees Lip Balm. But I think I would die without Google Reader and my list of inspirational blogs :) jj10bower@shaw.ca

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd need my hubby- FOR SURE! He's my BFF!

    ReplyDelete
  45. What lovely things!

    I could not live with out music, so the one thing I'd have to have would be an iPod with a full library of music on it. Mine, my dad's, my mom's, Steve's. All our music combined to make it all better.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hm, well, bottled water would be first on my list! Second, would be a cute floppy beach hat and a great beach read!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would want a can of paint and a brush- then I would keep busy by painting all the palm trees. And then, a Navy ship would find me faster. :)

  48. This is a tough one...hm.
    I would take either my iPod [that was magically enchanted to never run out of battery life, of course! ^_^]

    or

    my Harry Potter books, all 7, because I could read those over and over and over again! :]
    xo.

    missindie@mchsi.com

    ReplyDelete
  49. Definitely MUSIC and my scriptures, both would keep me alive and give me hope. Cheesy, I know, but true.
    Carolyn

    ReplyDelete
  50. Besides the obvious of drinking water...I would have to say that I would go crazy if I didn't have my music. It makes me happy and alive. If I had music I would be able to keep going...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Adorable idea and such an awesome giveaway! If I couldn't have the obvious (good company and a rescue plan) I think I'd opt for a beautiful blank notebook and a great pen. Sketching and writing would hopefully fill some of that extra time I'd have on my hands...

  52. A journal & pens. I'd lose my sanity if I couldn't write or draw!

  53. what a wonderful giveaway!

    strangely enough, the first thing that popped up in my mind when i read the question was "the bible". i guess while i'm stranded on an island, it would be great to catch up on some time alone with my heavenly Father.

    ReplyDelete
  54. If I was stuck on a desert island, I would have to have a huge glass of iced coffee. :)

  55. I'd like to have my iPod with me. Maybe the Island would have magical properties, and my iPod would never run out of batteries. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. touch decision - my hubby and my yorkie pup. They both brighten everyday for me.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Such a cute giveaway. I love it.

    Trapped on a desert island? I'd need my computer with internet. or my husband. hah.

    ReplyDelete
  58. You are so nice to offer such a great giveaway! I'd need my glasses and/or a really cool pair of prescription sunglasses on my island. And a pina colada

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wonderful giveaway....love your blog. I actually have two can't live withouts. The two things I could not live without is my laptop and my toothbrush. Two must haves!

  61. lovely giveaway! i would take pen and paper to my island. i love writing :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. What a pretty giveaway!

    To answer: I would hope to have my lipgloss...I go cuckoo without anything on my lips! Other than that, I'm pretty good with entertaining myself. I could build sand castles, collect shells, try my hand at weaving coconut tree leaves, build a fire like I've seen on Man vs Wild, I'd sing super loud (no one around), crack a coconut...haha, told ya I could entertain myself.

    ReplyDelete
  63. i would most definitely take my husband, does that count? :) he could do all the dirty work while i sipped coconuts on the beach!

    stacecadet21@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  64. I would bring my ipod,packed full with music,movies and my fav. taiwanese drama series..! So I won't go nuts and start talking to myself..hahaha

    erinyiyan@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  65. Ack! These questions stress me out! Are food and water taken care of? Is there any shade at all? I burn very easily! Are there dangerous animals? Can I make fire with the things already there?
    Okay, if all of that basic survival stuff is dealt with, then I would bring my cat. His name is Thunder Kitty and he entertains me endlessly. We're a duo.

    ReplyDelete
  66. what a wonderful giveaway! i would probably take john locke from LOST because he seems to know a whole lot about island survival...

    ReplyDelete
  67. oh mannnnnnnn, this is such an amazing giveaway!
    i would definitely have to take my husband. no question! does that count as "something?" :)
    thanks danni!

  69. I'd want a never-ending supply of books on this deserted island. Not sure how that would work out... maybe I could get monthly book-drops? :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I am really loving all of these pretty packages. So inspirational! Thanks for the comment on my blog and yes of course if you ever come to Maui you should definitely hit me up! That would be so fun! I love playing tour guide. :)

  72. I think this is the best giveaway I have seen in a while!

    If I were stuck on an island I would want my Mommy. As childish as it might sound. She's the best!

    And my e-mail is NicoleLynFellows@gmail.com in case you cant reach me through my blog.

    Thanks! Have a lovely day!

    ReplyDelete
  73. If I were stuck on a desert island, I would absolutely need to have one of those cute little gypsy wagons, completely furnished with an internet connection, and a friend to hang out with. I'm going to live it up on the island.

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  74. The number one most important thing to have with me on a desert island would be a companion. Someone to make me laugh and keep me from dying of boredom, and maybe help brainstorm ways to get off said desert island!!!

    jmarchand221 at gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  75. So if I had to choose one thing to have with me on a desert island (assuming this is a religiously free island), it would have to be my Bible. Not only would it be the only thing to keep me sane, but I could read it over and over and over again- heck I could attempt to memorize the whole thing. It would also give me lyrics to compose songs, as I cannot live without music. Yes- that is definitely it.

  76. A journal and pen so I could keep myself sane.

  79. What a fun giveaway! If I were stuck on a desert island, I would need a big floppy hat, some sunscreen and a really long novel to get lost in!

    ReplyDelete
  80. my camera. I'd want to take photos constantly if I were stuck on an island, after the initial shock of being stuck on an island.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Popcorn! That seems like not a very practical choice, but definitely popcorn. Specifically homemade kettle corn

    ReplyDelete
  82. wow danni.. thank you for being so generous with the giveaways! how lovely!! :)

    I just realised I forgot my cell phone, but i guess unlimited water supply is a MUST HAVE if i ended up in a desert! but yeah.. cell phone is good too.. so i can contact someone ;-D

  83. Everything is so pretty! :)

    If I were stuck on a desert island ... I would pick someone, my husband to give me company, instead of something. He is my best friend!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Am I allowed to say, "A way off!" haha, but seriously, if it has to be a physical object them I would love to have some pieces of beautiful material...

    Why? Well, clothes, shelter, bandages, sun protection, beauty, keeps you cool (when wet), keep you warm (when dry), keeps you happy (cause it's beautiful!!!)

  86. This is so nice of you Danni!
    Also, difficult!
    Just one item...I would have to say my iPod. And some kind of mechanism to charge it with solar power.

    (It was a tricky choice between that and a never-ending supply of coffee.)

    ReplyDelete
  87. aside from the obvious (sunscreen, i'm quite pale) i would absolutely have to have either alice in wonderland (the novel) or a kipling collection. theres always something new to notice when you read them.

    ReplyDelete
  88. This is the cutest giveaway ever!
    I would have to have at least one Harry Potter book. I'm horrible.

    kknelson2@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  89. this is such a cute giveaway - i'm especially excited about the book of notes! so if i were stuck on a desert island, as much as i'd want to say a good book, i think i'd have to go with sunscreen, cause i'd be pretty miserable if i was burnt to a crisp the whole time.

    katie[dot]stapleton[at]gmail[dot]com

    ReplyDelete
  90. pretty packages filled with lovely things... ahhh! :)

    hmm, if i was stuck on a desert island i would likes to have a super size container of elmers glue. :) hmm, or a pack of needles, i could make thread from things out in nature and stitch stuff together..

    ReplyDelete
  91. too much awesomeness in one giveaway! :]

    also, i think i'd be cheating the system, but i'd bring a bookshelf (filled with books, of course.) haha.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Katie Scott

    HOLY COW, I want the giveaway! :) I'd bring my husband. If it's a deserted island there would be no need for anything else than him. :) But, if I had to bring one thing, it would be a hammock!!! And, somehow I'd find a hidden library in a cave so I could read while in the hammock!

    katiescott724@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  93. It appears to be everyone elses wish... but I would take with me a steamer trunk full of books! :) Maybe we could all get stuck on the same island and share all of our books.... :)

    What an amazing, adorable package! Super exciting! :D

    thereisbeautiful@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love this idea! Do you love sending or receiving 'just because' gifts? Both are exciting!

    If I were stuck on a deserted island I would have to have an endless supply of iced tea! It is so refreshing on a hot day!

    ReplyDelete
  95. What an awesome giveaway!!

    If I were on a deserted island I'd have to have my art supplies.

  104. What a lovely giveaway!

    If I were stranded, I should love to have a laptop computer with satellite internet.
    As a person with agoraphobia, much of my life IS like being stranded on a deserted island, and the internet is my world. I find inspiration and friendships, new ideas and information.

    heidig@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  105. Love the whole little package!

    If I were stuck on a deserted island, I'd hopefully have an instruction manual about how to get off the island.

    Otherwise, since I'm working on my dissertation, I would just want a solar-powered, water-and-sand proof computer with all of my books digitally stored on it so that I could just get it over with already and write it! What concentration!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Oh my gosh Oh my gosh Oh my gosh!!!! I am so excited about this giveaway!!! What a lovely little package. Xenia can inspire some amazing things, huh??

    OK, let's see... for a desert island... I would absolutely take a huge awesome journal/sketchbook/scrapbook and various pens (that somehow have an infinite supply of ink).

    ReplyDelete
  107. What a beautiful package full of beautiful things!! I'd love to win this!! What I'd choose to bring to a desert island, would be my family photo album. I'd miss my little family so much :)

  108. You are the sweetest for doing a giveaway with all your favorites.

    ummmm, can I say the internet?

    Enter me pleeeease.

    ReplyDelete
  109. This giveaway is absolutely my fave. I wishing for everything in your lovely package.

    Oh no, the dreaded desert island question. My first instinct is to say a supply of good food but when I really think about it sun screen or tampons would be a good choice too.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Oh wow, what a fab giveaway!

    If I was stranded on desert island, I would HAVE to have...my husband! After that, probably my mascara or some scrapbook paper ;)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Ooh, this is a hard question. Good thinking question though, because it makes me wonder, "Does lip gloss really mean that much to me?" So I'll just say I'd need my mascara :)

    Fun giveway! Good luck gals.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Well, I would like to say that if I was stuck on a desert island I would have to have my husband with me, but he's not really a "something" is he? So after that I'm pretty sure I would choose my Bible. I love to read and anyway, it would keep me sane.

    LOVE this giveaway! Lace tape? Skeleton keys? What more could a girl ask for??

    ReplyDelete
  113. what a wonderful idea!...im a redhead so id have to say 80 spf sunblock...hehe

  118. If I was stuck on a desert island I would have to have sunblock. I wouldn't last a day without sunblock and lots of it. Plus, there has to be some nutritional value in sunblock... right?

  120. If I was stuck I'd love to have books to read. I'd love a stack of books I hadn't read yet, especially chick lit! :)

    ReplyDelete
  121. I would have to have my 3 stuffed animals, my camera and my bf. :)

    I love this package! It's so lovely. :)

  128. What an awesome give away. So pretty. One thing I would have to have on a desert island would have to be my lovely kitty, Merilyn. I would miss her way to much if she didn't come!

    ReplyDelete
  134. OOoh dear!
    Such prettiness.... <3

    I would definitely need a notebook (or just pieces of paper) to write on when on a lonely island. :)

    LOVE this post, dear!

  135. If I were stuck on a desert island I would definitely want my laptop with me (preferably with internet access). Even if I couldn't get internet, though, all my music and pictures are on there, plus I could write down my thoughts/experiences or even record myself on my laptop's webcam. :)

    Okay, so assuming I am stranded and therefore basically screwed, I won't ask for anything practical (like clean water, sunscreen, a ham radio, etc). Gimme a big vat of dirty martinis with about a gajillion blue cheese stuffed olives in it. If I;m gonna die of exposure and/or malnutrition, might as well make a party of it. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  137. i would need to have something to easily open coconuts with! food, drink, fluffy pillows & fiber arts!

    beautiful giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  138. A great book. Preferably a really long one!

    ReplyDelete
  139. If I were stuck in a deserted island I would absolutely have to have my journal and different colored pens to wile away the time. Thank you so much for the giveaway! Totally love the envelope book that is so cool what you did. What an inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Wow, these giveaways are getting intense! Beautiful package of goodies!

    Stranded on an island..hmm. I would bring....
    A boat? haha.

    Just Music.
    My music has always gotten me through
    every up and down, so I guess if I was stranded it would be the best thing!!

    ReplyDelete
  141. If I were stranded I'd need a boat or helicopter because there's no way I'd survive on an island.

    neonemulsion@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  142. so generous of you! :)

    since it has to be a thing, i would like to have a nice cold bottle of coke zero.

    mmm mmm good.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Oh my oh my Danni this is the most gorgeous giveaway. Plus I love the list too.

    I would have to have a journal and pen so I can write my adventures down and keep track of everything that happens. Plus I can write letters and sketch and all sorts of things =)

    ReplyDelete
  144. hello! I love this idea of sharing your favorite things!

    I would take a great pair of sunglasses. There is nothing worse than not seeing well because of the sun!

    ReplyDelete
  145. Wonderful gifts!! I would have to take my laptop with me (assuming a solar powered charger comes with it :) )

    ReplyDelete
  146. Well I would like a water purifier, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  147. wow, that is a perfect prize pack!
    if i was stuck on a desert island, i'd have to have my hubby with me...not a "thing" of course but that's what I'd want with me!

    Thanks for the chance!

  148. Ohh these are wonderful! I would bring my polaroid camera [and of course, lots of 600 film]! Think of the beautiful moments you could capture (:

    ReplyDelete
  149. You are too delightful! I love the photos + your list is so cute! For me it would have to be my favorite book -- which changes all the time, so of course it'd be a magical book that could change into anything I wanted. OR, I'm so behind technologically, I guess that'd be a Kindle! Except what if the battery ran down, or would I have electricity? A-hem, sorry for the ramblings :) Mmm, pretty tape, that's my fave :)

    ReplyDelete
  150. Ohmygosh - this is such a fantastic giveaway - very unique and creative, and I'd just die for that little notebook!

    Would it be cheating to say I'd absolutely have to have a small plane full of my close family, friends, boyfriend, and cats? The plane wouldn't have to actually work - I wouldn't want to cheat too badly! ;)

  155. this is a hard one!!
    there are so many items i want to say i would absolutely need.... but i think i would HAVE to have a friend to explore with. a deserted island would be incredibly gorgeous and i would need someone to share the beauty with.
    a camera would also be nice... :)

    ReplyDelete
  156. Hard to choose - since there aren't many items I feel I need to have with me at any moment, but probably a notebook/pen... because I always want to write things down. :)

    ReplyDelete
  160. this is the cutest package ever! I'm serious :)

    what I would have to have if I were on a desert island? hmm if I were practical I'd say water, lol, but I really prefer a book (I'm pretty sure I'd be beating myself with it after spending a couple of days without water but oh, well..)

    have a lovely weekend, dear! xo

    ReplyDelete
  169. If people don't count, I would take a photo of my partner and 2.5 month old. Seeing their beautiful faces would keep me sane and smiling even if they weren't near.

  170. Oooh! It might be cliche, but, I'd need my dad! Sure personality wise, we'd drive each other up the wall, but he's the only person I know who would know how to survive!

    p.s. this is the world's loveliest package!

    Very nice giveway, I love it!!

  174. If I were stuck on an island, I would definitely have to pack some sort of sunscreen/lip balm hybrid multi-use product. But since I know of none out right now, it would have to be a sleeping bag. If I'm going to be there for a while, I might as well be somewhat comfortable! I could use it for shelter, burn the stuffing inside, rip it up for clothing, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Such an adorable package! You are so sweet to your blog readers.

    If I were stuck on a desert island I would definitely need my partner in crime/other half with me. I'm a hopeless romantic so being stuck on a desert island with him sounds wonderful!

  176. there are so so many things I would want with me on a desert island. but rather than list something practical, like water and sunblock, I am going to say I would want to have a towering stack of magazines! what's better than flipping through the pages of a glossy magazine while lying on the beach?! it would be perfect because lately I feel like I am too busy to sit down and actually read all the magazines I subscribe to or feel compelled to buy while in line at the grocery store... :) p.s. that package is so adorable, I hope I win! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  177. I'd love to have a blank notebook and tons of writing implements so I can fill the notebook with my thoughts and drawings. I want to know what will come out of my head when I've really got nothing else to do or mind because, hello, I'm stuck on a deserted island!

    ReplyDelete
  178. I think il have to go with an ipod. Id pack it with movies, sex and the city re-runs and all my favourite music to keep me occupied although if i knew i would only be stranded for a few days id take a really good book!

  179. Having recently watched Castaway I'm going to boring but alive at the end of my island ordeal!

    I'd take swiss army knife/ lighter/ toothbrush/ toothpaste combo.

    & maybe a friend for company...and possisbly sacrifice if things got desperate

    ReplyDelete
  180. what an amazing and beautiful giveaway! I just had to enter.

    I think I'd bring my striped hammock. I could sleep in it, dream in it, hide from the sun under it or use it to attract attention from ships. Sounds like a neat holiday to me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  181. What a gorgeous giveaway - I would bring my duck feather pillow with nice cotton coverslip! Gillian

  185. Wow you're such a lovely spirit, everything you do seems to be touched with a few drops of magic and whimsy.
    Anyway, I always dreaded this question at quizzes and tests because I have absolutely no idea! All I can hope is never to be stuck on an island... But maybe I would bring my kitty, she can catch birds for me to eat. Oh no, I'm vegetarian. Ah, I have no clue!

  186. Hi, what a fantastic bunch of things you put together there:)

    I would have to go with my boyfriend. If there was plenty of drinking water that is;) If I could only bring a dead object I would probably bring a pair of scissors or a knife...and then go bananas on some of the vegetation and flora on the island in order to build a little hut:)

    ReplyDelete
  187. wow, what a generous give away! I think what I would need on an island is drinking water. Lame, but necessary!

    Thanks!
