Dreams Do Come True: Featured On Daily Candy


Holy moly. That’s really all I can say at the moment. A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the super sweet editors of Daily Candy. And guess what? They wanted to feature that little circus party I put on a while back. Can you believe it?!?! It’s a darn shame you’re not next to me right now. I need you to pinch me.

I have loved Daily Candy for ages. I would not have found some of my favorite shops and people had it not been for this lovely juggernaut of design inspiration. If you’ve ever visited the site, you know what I’m talking about. And if you’ve never visited the site, well then you should stop reading these words and head on over there right now. I hope your head doesn’t explode from all the goodness that will be coming your way.

We’re halfway through the year and I can’t believe the amazing things that have happened for and because of this blog. I’ve made so many great friends and feel that I’m starting to get the hang of things. At the beginning of the year, I decided to put as much effort as possible into bettering myself and The Proper Pinwheel. Remember these goals? They’re resonating with me now more than ever. I’m so grateful to you, dear-awesome-readers-whom-I-love-so-much, for hanging in there with me. I can’t thank you enough. This experience has definitely been an amazing one and it’s just the beginning. It’s been a whirlwind and there are some great things that will be happening as time moves forward. Stick around. You’ll be glad you did. :)

There have been a few things that have really pushed me to improve myself, and over the next week I am going to share some of them with you. There’s going to be a giveaway involved. (I know! Two within a week of each other! I must be crazy! Crazy for you!) For today, I would just LOVE it if you checked out the feature. It would mean the world to me. Thank you, Daily Candy! I don’t think my day can get any better!

Unless somebody gives me a corn dog…

      Thanks, Jess! I’m so happy to know that you know what DC is! My family was like, “Sure, we’ll take your word for it…”

    So, so adorable!

    Would it be possible to share where you got your paper for the pinwheels? I’m look for exactly that (bigger sheets) to make them for my daughter’s party. Thank you so much!

    And, congratulations on your DC feature!

      Thanks, Courtney! The pinwheel paper is from Michael’s. I used the big square sheets found in the scrapbook paper section. I used about 8-10 sheets per pinwheel. Hope that helps! I’d love to see pictures of your daughter’s party when it’s finished! :)
