  4. Danni,

    I thoroughly enjoy visiting your blog (it's one of my regulars and my faves!) because you share in my appreciation for the dainty, crafty, pretty, and whimsical things in life. :) My favorites about the winter season are as follows: scarves, coats, frozen cheeks, hot drinks to warm the frozen fingers, a good book and some jazz - that, or folk, a hand to hold, being in the company of loved ones, lights, staying warm under heavy blankets, hope, refreshment, new mercies every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).

    :)

  7. Congrats on reaching 1000! I've really enjoyed your blog--there is always something inspiring and sweet. I've been wearing out the Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins CD lately...and am loving that the weather is finally cool enough that I don't have to sweat while drinking my cup of vanilla rose tea : )

  9. Congrats Danni!

    I am cramming for two upcoming craft shows and I am about to pull my hair out...but on a happier note... I love your blog! =)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi Danni~ Congrats on being so inspiring to so many people! I always like your fresh fonts and the way you mix them up and your color combos too. You have an eye for things that go well together without "matching". Love that. =) I'm getting excited about Christmas already. I want to do a handmade tree- trimmed only with things I've made with my kids. I think it would be charming and memorable. And hopefully we'll actually pull it off! I hope you have some fun holiday inspiration for us too. I am putting some of your hairpins on my b-day list- which happens to be next month too. They're so sweet. Hope everything is okay for you today. =)

  11. My quote of the day: "Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens."

    I hope I win:)

    I have a newborn, he's about 5 weeks now... and lately he's been sooo grouchy and only sleeping in 15-30 minute increments. My poor baby is having tummy issues... Hopefully he'll be better soon, but that's what's going on in my life at the moment.

    My FAVORITE song right now is "Cave In" by Owl City. I sing it to the baby all the time! :]

  29. As a college student, I have to say the parts of winter I'm looking to most are our silly traditions. The annual North Quad vs South Quad snowball fight is a must-do, and there's nothing quite like stealing some trays from the dining hall for a bit of sledding.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congrats!
    I absolutely love your blog and have found many more I love through it. (like jessicajanehandmade and cakies)

    I'm currently in love with a saying I saw somewhere that says:
    Where there is love there is never darkness.

  38. my favorite things about this cold cold season: warm laundry, getting to unpack 3 lifetimes of Christmas memories when I decorate my tree with my Grandmothers antique ornaments, cuddling under mountains of blankets, tights, my aunt odie's sugar cookies, and last but not least, I highly anticipate making, wrapping, & giving gifts to my family and friends.

    ReplyDelete
  39. yay congrats!!
    i have an interview tomorrow and i'm excited!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow, congratulations! My encouraging thought is more of a tip, but it helps me keep things in perspective: if something goes wrong, ask yourself, "Will this matter in ten minutes? Ten Hours? Ten days? Ten weeks? Ten years?" Ta-da, suddenly the problem seems much less serious!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Congratulations! 1000 followers...very well deserved!

    I'm getting excited because my family (mom, dad, and sister) are coming to visit me tomorrow! I live in Massachusetts (for college), and they live in Seattle. I haven't seen them since August, and I'm very excited to show them where I'm living, and what I've been up to. Counting down the hours!!!! :)

I love love LOVE seasons, and can't imagine living in a place in which I'm not able to experience the colors and temperatures and everything that comes with them, and so I will comment on your 'favorite thing about winter' question: I love the first snowfall, and the cozy feeling it produces. Somehow the cold that the snow brings is so much better than the dark gray colors outside and the cold. (I'm also a sucker for holiday music and decorating!)

  69. my favourite thing about winter is, hands-down, the snow. Living in Vancouver, it doesn't come as often as it did growing up in the mountains, but when it does it is magical. A blanket of quiet over the city. Everything stops. Everything is white and pure. Ahh snow.

  71. congrats on 1000 followers!

    living in the southern hemisphere, i'm looking forward to a hot hot summer, where i can hopefully get a tan for my sister's wedding, and lay around for a few days a week when i'm not working. my favourite thing about the holiday season is spending time with the family, and sharing the christmas spirit with others.

    my favourite song at the moment is lenka's 'jump in the pool'. it's so summer-y and it has a lovely tune, and it reminds me of my best friend who lives on the other side of the world.

  82. howdy doody 'oh hello friend',

    I have spent this afternoon trying to compose a christmas tree out of cardboard boxes. I can forsee the need for some paper mache! maybe putting some street directory pages on it? (I live in Australia so we don't really have fur trees like you peeps do.)

    Anyhow... i just wanted to say thank you for all the inspiring beauty you put on this page. It has been eye, brain and creative candy spurring me on to have a go at stretching my own creativity!

  95. First of all, I adore your blog and your shop as well and am not the least bit surprised that you're such a sweeping success. You deserve every bit of it!!!

    My favorite quote of all time is, "May you live every day of your life." - Jonathan Swift

    Right now though, I'm on kind of a self-betterment kick, so I'm loving:

  97. I stumbled across your blog, quite by accident, and am now obsessed. :) Let's see...I love the style of your work; it's beautiful in its simplicity. The title of your blog struck a chord with me--we can always be reminded that we are loved. So, by way of a long introduction, I thought my post would be about my own blog title:

    Live.Love.Matter.

    It's become somewhat of a personal motto for me. I discovered that lovely combination of words while browsing the greeting cards in a Whole Foods. I think that those three words can mean so much if you truly apply them to your life. So, live life with passion, strength, and self-awareness; love those around you who support you and return that love; make something of yourself and change this world for the better. Best wishes everyone!

  98. Well everything is super cute, as always.

  116. Wow congratulations!! I was lucky enough to meet you at the UCSD vendor fair and thought I'd look up your etsy shop, and here I am.

    Looks like you are doing a positively fantastic job! I am really enjoying my silver bow necklace & the two headbands I purchased from you. Been getting tons of compliments. =)

  117. Well, there is no white Christmas for us here in Australia - but we have other things to love about this wonderful season! Spending time with family is the thing I look forward to most, along with great food, very long summer days, no school or work and summer vacation with people you love.

    ReplyDelete

    My favourite thing about winter would have to be visiting Princes Street in Edinburgh - they put on quite a display in Princes Street Gardens with ice skating, a big wheel, lots of Christmas stalls and a great atmosphere. It really gets me into the Christmas mood. :)

  125. First of all congrats on reaching 1000! That sure is enough to warm up a heart and make you smile!
    I have recently gone through a separation from my husband, and thought it would be a while before something or someone will warm my heart and put a smile on my face... I was wrong, as there is a special someone who has managed to bring back that warm good feeling, and I smile every day!!

    ReplyDelete
  126. My favourite song at the moment is Leona Lewis's version of Run (I also love the Snow Patrol original) and my favourite thing about winter is being able to wear my new snuggly (fake) fur-lined parka and fingerless gloves - heaven! My e-mail is bueller[at] btinternet[dot]com

    ReplyDelete
  127. Congratulations on both your lovely blog and the 1000 mark. That is truly something. The best thing about winter approaching... is that it's summer down here in Australia. :) Keep typing

    ReplyDelete
  128. Congratulations! This is amazing, and also very well-deserved, for your blog is nothing but pure delight.

    I woke up with a smile today because I realized I have a birthday weekend to attend tomorrow! We are celebrating mine as well as a darling friend of mine's birthday; She is an avid user of flower hairpins, and since my present for her is quite horribly handmade, it would be so lovely to win this and give the pins to her.

    Again, congratulations on the 1000 followers! x

    My favourite thing about winter is snuggling up with Husband with a hot drink on a cold day — I can't wait to try my first gingerbread latte! :)

    ReplyDelete
  138. everyone complains when it starts getting dark early, but i secretly love it. it's cozy to settle in early with my family, to switch on the porch light and sit beside the wood stove playing games, eating dinner early. i guess i like hibernating!

    congratulations on the 1,000!

  139. Winter is finally here! I love the sound of rain - and the smell. :-)

  140. You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed, sing like bird
    Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Ohh, you make me smile
    Uncle Kracker - Smile

    I'm just a little bit obsessed with this song right now. So beautiful. My fingers are crossed for the win. Congratulations on hitting 1,000 followers! Definitely something to cheer about.

  141. 1000[+]....yipppeeeeeee!

    The absolute best thing about winter for me are the days right before and right after Christmas when work has slowed down and I can spend all my time with my family....completely guilt free....listening to Johnny Mathis holiday music, gazing at the tree and snacking on homemade sugar cookies.

    It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year!!

    ReplyDelete
  142. Congrats!! Your blog is so lovely and such an inspiration!
    Right now I cannot stop listening to Billie Holiday. Something about her music and her voice makes me think about being somewhere warm and cozy on cold winter days.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Hello friend and congrats for 1000 followers!!
    My favorite lyrics (esp.when I'm down) is from J.C.Superstar: 'Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to Problems that upset you, oh.
    Don't you know Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.
    And we want you to sleep well tonight...'.
    It's a nice song for Xmas and winter time as well!
    PS: beautiful gifts - they show your neat taste!

  147. How lovely! And congrats!!!!

    My favorite thing about winter is the smell of snow coming... not necessarily the snow itself (unless I get to stay home!), and my house at night once my Christmas tree is up, the gentle glow from the lights. Just thinking about it makes me so happy!

  150. I do so love getting up early when its still dark with my dog and taking a walk, and then we sneak back into bed and cuddle with my warm hubby. (who pretends to complain about my cold feet and our doxies cold nose, but lets us do it every morning anyway!)

  151. congratulations on reaching 1000 followers! (even though I am sure their are many more who follow your lovely blog secretly)

    I am fairly new to your blog, but it is one I check every day and I always come away so inspired!

    For me in Australia the things I love about the upcoming Christmas season is summer, bare feet, delicious seafood, gourmet salads, bbq's and endless Beach days :)

  152. Congrats!! 1000 is such an awesome milestone!

    I just moved from NC to South GA to be near my family while my husband is in Afghanistan. I was reluctant to move just to be around my family's drama and stress, but I have to say, I am thankful to get to spend this short year with them. The military moves us alot so to have a small window where our lives are intertwined is such a blessing!

    Here's to your continued blessings. Keep up the wonderful work! I love reading your blog!

  158. Congratulations Danni!

    I'm ill at the moment and have been housebound for a little while so to entertain myself today I built a fort out of some floral bedsheets and pillows, I made an Autumn wreath from berries and twigs to hang on my door, and made vanilla buttermilk biscuits (to eat in my fort!)

  172. I can't stop listening to the five new songs that were added to the platinum version of Taylor Swift's "Fearless" album. I love how you can just hear her growing up as new songs are released, and though she's younger than I am, she's quite the role model!

    my favorite thing about the holidays season coming up is the excuse to spoil other people (and ourselves!) with little treats and trinkets, and spend time with family. i also love all the twinkly lights everywhere, and wish we could leave them up much longer to make february a bit less bleak!

  189. I love your blog - it's one of my favs! Actually I think it was the first blog I started following many moons ago.
    My favorite thing about winter is the memories it provides. My husband I started dating in the winter (almost 10 yrs ago). As the days turn cold, the winter coats come out & the heat gets turned on in our home it rekindles the love (&lust - haha) that I have for that boy I met back in college that gave me butterflies everytime he looked at me (& still does)!

  194. Danni,
    I just wanted to say how inspiring your blog has been to me through the past several months. You inspired me to take more care on packaging my own items prettily, more time on making cohesive design a feature of my Etsy shop, and more time telling my friends and family how thankful I am for them.
    You are loved!
