swoon in 2012:

January 4, 2012

Photobucket

Here are some things I am swooning over in this new year of 2012.
What sort of things are you inspired by at this moment?

Vintage stamp packs via Send More Mail

Wit & Whistle's DIY Calendar Journal
(also inspired that Amanda finished her entire 12 by 2012 list!)

I got a really nice lens from my husband for Christmas and it made me think of this photo , haha. Just because I have a super-duper mega lens, doesn't mean I'm a photographer. and I don't think of myself as one by any means ;) via You are not a photographer

I love fonts! Especially free fonts.
Round up of fonts from Going Home to Roost via Birch + Bird pinterest
Man, I want a gold nugget! via Design Seeds (great color resource!)

Some lovely words to live by in 2012.
Text added via Only Kiss Graphic via Caiti Borruso

Swooning over these amazing birthday invites via Edyta Szyszlo

Photo a day challenge?! Yes please. Brilliant. Genius. I want to do it.
Amazing idea from Fat Mum Slim via Jen's Pin

Maybe I'll get a tattoo this year. via fyeahtattoos


25 hello's:

  1. Love each of those items you posted and the birthday invite is so cool! I will definitely be making invites with balloons one day!

  7. Love your finds! I am doing that photo challenge too and having a link up where everyone can share their photos! Link up at the end of the month if you want to share your pics!

  8. Such great inspiration! I made a similar calendar journal with index cards and cute dividers. I keep it in a berry container. :) I LOVE THOSE balloons! I'll be 30 next month so this may have to be done..... :) Happy New Year!

  9. I cannot agree more with that photographer statement! I have a nice camera, also, but I am not a photographer! It drives me crazy when people start a photography business after buying a nice camera..

  10. ooh this is an awesome roundup. love those fonts from bonnie! if you'd like something fun from my shop for reader appreciation (ie. items for a giveaway or a printable etc.) i'd love to share them... please feel free to email me: amy@thankyoucardsshop.com

  11. Hi Danni, your photographer statement is so-so-so true! Just because someone has the big camera doesn't mean he/she makes the big pictures (neither the other way round). btw - happy new year!

  12. What am I inspired by? You! And your blog and posts on pretty packaging!! I stumbled upon your blog a few times before, but when I found you again last weekend, I seriously spent hours reading through posts and looking at your pretty photos! I'm working on a packaging re-design with my jewelry and have been so inspired by the wonderful ways you package your items! Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. This is a lovely collection.

    Love the Only Kiss quote and the tattoo (makes me want another even more). I'm also currently attempting the photo a day challenge on instagram, love it.

  14. Haha, my sentiments exactly re: having a fancy camera does not necessarily mean you're a great photographer. I just discovered that my aunt takes breathtaking photos just from a regular point and shoot! I hope to improve my photography skills this year! :)

  15. I love that those words to live by! And the balloon invitation is so creative!

  16. That balloon idea is way cool! Also, every year I make the resolution to send more snail mail and every year I fail! Terrible :( I say go for it with the tattoo, but make sure you research your artist well- I did and I have awesome tattoos :)

    PS I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you're keen :)

  17. Thank you for the tip about the free fonts, just what I needed!

  18. I too am so inspired by you! I went to one of your trunk shows for Ruche and fell in love with all your items you had :). I love your blog and your cute shop so much and you will definitely be getting some orders from me. I have had a small business and would love to start buying some of your things for packaging to use :). Thanks so much for the inspiration and ideas!

  19. Great post! Some beautiful things in there. I agree about the camera quote, made me smile. While I have a nice new lens too, but it certainly won't make me an amazing photographer. If I had a $1 for everytime someone said "What camera do you have, I might buy one as your photos look really good" :)

    Also love the balloon idea, we used that for our wedding 'save the dates' :D Got some great feedback.

  20. Sweet! I love the fonts and can't wait to play around with them this evening. I am also so on board with the photo-a-day challenge and I think I will finish this too! Thanks for sharing!
