In case you haven’t been planning for it all month, it’s not too late to figure out a way to observe World Kindness Day today with some super deliberate or totally random acts of kindness!
Me, I have friends from out of town coming to visit my husband to lift his spirits. He has no idea! I have spent the entire night praying for my husband's stage 3-possibly 4 Hodgkins lymphoma to just go away. He starts chemo in two weeks, every two weeks for six months and he's a bit depressed. But I know with all my heart and soul he'll make it. So I brought in the big guns. His best friend from Ohio!
Did you know it was World Kindness Day? How will you observe today? .

Do you have a favorite quote on gratitude? I also happen to believe that gratitude is an attitude, today I thought I’d share my favorite quote: "Thank you is the best prayer that anyone could say." —Alice Walker. I say that one a lot. So thank you so much! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. ⠀

My last post was raw and vulnerable.⠀

All of you who reached out to me via DM, warmed my heart and made me feel that I'm not alone. I've never felt so loved by this Instagram community. "Thank you" doesn't even seem like it's enough to express my gratitude and love for you all. ⠀

Sometimes it feels like no one sees all your hard work. Your commitment to not giving up. And all of the things you do every single day to keep you going. But this time, because of you, I don't feel that way as much.💗💗💗🌸🌸🌸 ⠀

As I said in my last post, I can create "life" from paper to make a flower, but I'm not able to save a human's. But now I know that the power I do have is to give love and support. You taught me that. So again, thank you, thank you from my very soul for the love you have shown me. ⠀ ⠀

I'd love it if you would share your favorite quote in the comments below! Tell me how the Instagram community has made you feel!⠀

I need to tell you the truth... I'm human.
Hi, I'm Dani and I'm a paper florist. I design high-end paper flowers for people who want something beautiful to last forever. It's ironic actually. My husband has just been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. It's ironic that I can create "life" for a flower from paper, but I can't save one of a human's.
Dave and I have been married for 16 yrs, together for 19 and we have created two beautiful children together. A girl, Lawsen, who's 11. And a boy, Owen, who's just turned 14. We have three Pit bull rescues, who happen to be a motley crew of lunatics, and a cat who thinks she's a dog. We haven't had the heart to correct her on that.
I feel so ashamed in saying this, but I've been incredibly selfish. I've been really stressed about my business, whining, bitching and moaning about ridiculous things when God has other plans for us instead.

I've fallen apart, cried, screamed and punched my pillow. I've been angry, depressed and yes, unlike myself, very negative. I try to hide all of this because I know it will do no good to my husband if he sees it.

I realize now that I've been feeling sorry for myself, shutting down, and not helping the situation in any way. I'm so embarrassed to admit it, but I wanted to just say screw it and quit. I now realize that if I quit trying and quit creating, my husband might not ever see the work that he supported me in doing for so many years, succeed. To be honest, completely honest, I don't exactly know what success looks like for me. But I want the chance to find it.

Nothing in life is forever, life is so fleeting and being negative, sad, angry, or any of this, will not save him. It won't make him live longer, or make it all go away. But I can be present and I can love him and my children with all my heart. I can be strong for him, I can pick him up when he falls. That I can do. I hope. The rest... doesn't really matter, does it?

I will continue being strong. I will work as hard as I can to help him. Create with my hands and heart and I'll be the best version of myself. Because that is the only option I'm giving myself. So, screw you Cancer, we've got shit to do yet.

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?? Yup, I've been getting this message a lot, so here's what's up!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lately, things in my business have been pretty epic and full of excitement, and let’s be honest, chaotic. It comes with the territory, I guess, when you open a new shop and make flowers for influencers. You’re suddenly required to produce nearly triple your work because demand is skyrocketing THAT quickly! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes it’s the things that seem smallest, which open doors for those big, and best things. I just want to pause and acknowledge that this is awesome…and clearly a cause for celebration! But, I’m on the road pursuing my passion, and even the very longest journey begins with the smallest steps. Itty bitty teensy weensy steps in my case. Lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So if you haven't seen me in a little while, it's because I've been working like crazy! While trying to keep a balance between work and time for my family. Let me tell you how hard that is! But it comes with the territory when your #mombosses ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will keep posting as often as possible, this past week has been insane! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you so much for being patient and such an awesome friend that keeps coming back to visit me! I'll have some new content coming at you in a bit. So keep on keeping on my friend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
OH! CHECK OUT MY NEW WEBSITE done by @cyberlilydesign Omg. she's beyond awesome! Absolute dream to work with! Link in bio!!!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Hello Monday! 🎉That doesn't even sound fun does it? Lol. Well, here's something fun! 🌸I finally was able to get past my fear of video! 🤗 So, with you in mind, after the general consensus that you would all like to see my process of making a paper flower, I finally made one. 🎉🎉🌹
.
.
Here's a sneak peek into the bouquet that I am making for Amelia @a_triple_shot_of_e for home coming. I'm very excited and nervous, but I hope you enjoy. I'll be posting a picture of the bouquet and boutonnier after she receives it! But until then, the second picture is the mood board I created to give me some inspiration. I hope you like this!

It’s so easy to be critical of ourselves and magnify even the tiniest of errors that befall us in business…so I’m going out on a limb and focusing instead on three things I do WELL in my work. I’m detail oriented, a perfectionist (good and bad), and as I have previously mentioned, super empathetic⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
It kinda feels odd and self-congratulatory, but why shouldn’t we give ourselves props where props are due?! We give them to others all the time! List your 3 best business qualities below and we’ll all extend our own proverbial pats on the back to you, too! (And I promise, once you get past the ‘wait, what?’ of it, it feels really good!)⠀

If you could put this blush rose arrangement anywhere in your home, where would it go?⠀

🌸O-M-G! I LOVE this dining room! If only I could keep mine this clean! 🌸This room is beautifully styled by @chelsiewoodscottage and I have to say it's totally my style, if you didn't already know, lol. I could totally envision myself making a beautiful arrangement for this space! You have to go and check out her feed! Fabulous!🙌 I'm sorry I haven't posted this week. My whole house has come down with a stomach bug and let me tell you, I'm so over it! My babies have been so sick and missed the whole week of school, cheer and soccer. Now they're stressed out trying to catch up with all their work. Poor babies. Well, I guess they're not babies anymore at 11 and 14, but they'll always be my babies!

How has your week been going? It's almost Friday! I'm working on making a video (do they say video anymore?) of me making one of the flowers for my client's Cala Lily bouquet! How do you turn the darn sound off? 😂😂 You can totally hear my dogs playing. Lol. Ah oh well.
I hope you enjoy it anyway. I'm still trying to figure it out, but I'll post it soon, I promise! What have you been up to this week? I'd love to know, since mine was filled with little sickies!

Hello! I want to help introduce the world of Paper flowers to you. Because if I may be so bold, I think you might be into it too since you are here. I like to think of my business as the perfect, personal touch for all of life’s loveliest moments. Moments that live on forever, never fade, never die and are always there to remind you of those special moments in time that mean so much to you.
.
.
My main purpose is to make you happy and make you flowers that make you happy too! I want to get to know you and build you the perfect arrangement or decorations for you that will tell your story and remind you that some things in life are forever.🌸
.
.
Whether you are getting them to decorate your home to brighten up your space or add elegance, or giving them as a gift to a special someone in your life so that they always remember how much you care, or for your wedding which you can repurpose into arrangements in your home as you start your new lives together. Paper flowers are the perfect alternative to having fresh flowers in your lives. They live on forever.🌸
.
.
The fun part is that you can have them exclusively designed for yourself. Colors and flowers that are in season or not in season are available for you. If you don't have the patience to put them into arrangements, they can be done for you🌸
.
.
The best part is that they are extremely low maintenance so that you don't have to worry if you remembered to water the flowers or not!

🍁🍂Happy Fall Y'all! It’s the first day of fall! For me that means pumpkin lattes, cozy cardigans and Ugg boots everyday! Jumping in leaf piles we just raked, pumpkin and apple picking and costume shopping! Ugh, costume shopping😝😩 🍂 🍁The saddest part for me is that nature will be going to sleep for the next seven months, but at least I'll have my flowers to help me through the cold and dreary days until life springs back up! 🍁 🍂I'm a summer and sunshine kind of girl, but a crisp fall day wouldn't be that bad! The vibrant colors of the leaves are so colorful! 🍂

How is it that a simple change in season makes me suddenly feel like the past year has flown by and I have no clue as to where it went? Lol 😂 🍂🍁What does fall mean for you? 🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁

Happy Friday Again😂😂😂!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 I posted the wrong photograph earlier 😝and realized it too late😳😬🙄! So let's try this again shall we?
.
.

I have a fun question for you down below so keep reading and let's have fun! 😂😂 But first let's talk about the process in which these gorgeous hellabors came to be! .
.
These crepe paper sapphire blue hellebores were a labor of love! I was searching for a unique color of the hellabor in Google. Well, I found it! .
.
The richness and beauty of this color took my breath away and I had to recreate it. The original color of this double-sided crepe paper was Sangria (wine color) from @liagriffith. I used @panpastel chalks in plumb, purple, dark blue, some light blues and violets to get the beautiful color that I was looking for. The white hellebore was shaded with light green, violet and lavender colored pencils (who knew??). All colored to perfection. Nature sure comes up with incredible colors!
.
.
So, now you—who’s coming for dinner?
.
.
Imagine you’re throwing a dinner party and you get to invite 3 people—ANY 3 people—you want to come. Who’s it gonna be??? And why?? My list would be as follows: Carrie from SITC (bc I would just love to be her for one day aaaand she would so love my flowers! My best friend Christina (bc I love her and she would be crazy p-offed if I didn't, lol) and Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson (because duh, HELLO! .
.
.
.
Maybe it seems obvious, but honestly, I LOVE a good laugh and all three of these people would sure as heck make one awesome dinner party. I'm sure I’d totally get to world peace hosting these three and filling them with my world famous Chocolate Martinis and some good ol' NYC pizza! I wonder what Dwayne would look like drinking a martini? 🤔 Who cares? He looks good doing ANYTHING
.
.
.

They're all really down to earth people with real problems and a wicked sense of humor, and who doesn't like to cry or wet your pants laughing that hard?? My best friend always has me rothflmao! Please, tell me you know what that means! On second thought, maybe not world peace, but definitely a VERY good time!

Happy Thursday! I don't have much to say today except, thank you all so much for your kind words and great advice on yesterday's post. It means so much to me that you took time out of your busy day and were willing to help me out!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is exactly what I meant about building meaningful relationships! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So thank you again and enjoy this beautiful and luxurious paper flower bouquet of pink and white peonies, blush and pink roses, and gorgeous gold embellishments! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

😁 Happy, happy Wednesday! I have a question for you, so read to the end! The internet does so much to bring us together, and yet it sometimes seems a poor substitute for real human connection. I’m lucky that isn’t the case here. I thrive on human connection, it's the only way I create meaningful relationships.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love you so much for indulging me with my silly polls, sharing critical feedback that continues to help me improve my business and listening to my crazy stories that have resulted in coffee dates, great friendships, and even super fun collabs!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The little Instagram world we share is truly the cherry on life’s proverbial sundae, so Gracia! Agradecimento! Danke schön! Bolshoi Spasibo! Xiè Xiè, Mercí, Grazie, THANK YOU for being here and helping me a better paper florist every day! I also would like to thank the Coffee Gods, without them, I couldn't function!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*****Indulge me one more time!******⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would like to ask you a question though. What would you like to see more of or learn from me? Please let me know, flood my comments so that I can learn from you! 🤓🌸🌸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
