I really do want to know...

Photobucket
Seriously...I think about this all the time. When I look at my stats page and see that in a day anywhere from 250 to 450 people look at this blog, I wonder who in the heck you are! I know some of you...Rach, Mom, Kasey, and Dad are checking from home or work...Nancy is checking at school where she teaches...Kara and Kelly are both checking from college, (and a whole bunch of other people I love as well but can't name them all right now!), but I get emails from new clients who tell me they've been reading my blog daily for months. It makes me wonder...just who are you anyway?

Leave me a comment on this post telling me how you found me, who sent you, etc, and I will enter you to win $15 off your next order!! You have until Thursday at midnight central time to enter. And yes, Mom, Dad, Rach, Nancy, Kara, Kelly, and all those other peeps I love must leave a comment too, even though I'd give you whatever you wanted for free anyway! I'll announce the winner on Friday morning.

However you got here, I'm sure glad to have you and hope you're here to stay!

So - I am Jess' sister...and frequent commenter on this blog. If it isn't updated in a timely manner, you better believe I'm the first to get on her case about it!!

I'm Heidi (Tate's future Mother In Law!). I found you on Etsy over a year ago and have been a PD&P addict ever since. Thanks Jess for all of the great advice and conversation over the past year! Can't wait until you guys move to NE! hahaha.

Hi Jess,
I follow, I found you through ESTY and you helped me plan my son's first birthday party. The famous circus party :) I love seeing what your doing, and making, and look forward to using you again this year.

Best,
Michelle

Hi! I'm a friend of Michelle's (of the famous circus party :-). I've been looking at your blog lately to see the latest designs for boys. My younger son is getting this helmet thing to reshape his flathead, and I've been looking at your blog for inspiration on how to decorate his helmet.

Hi, I found your blog through Hostess with the Mostess. I was looking through their "blog friends" and your name and button caught my eye. It was love at first site. I LOVE to throw parties and do a lot of the same things you do only just for me for fun, banners, cupcake toppers, etc. You have great ideas and designs. I come by every day to see what fun thing you've got going on. oh and I've already ordered babylegs for both my girls to match their party outfits for their b-day in Oct. : )
Such cute stuff!

Tiffany said...

Oh and I can't get your button to work for me : (

I found you on www.onthedotcreations.typepad.com last August when you were doing a giveaway. I became hooked and haven't stopped following you ever since. I HOPE I win!!

Julie - On the Dot Creations said...

Hi, Jess. I found you through Etsy, of course. Somehow, shops with polka dots just seem to gravitate toward me. :)

Brian and Melissa said...

Hi Jess,
I first saw your work on HWTM for the Circus Party and absolutely loved it. It is then how I found ETSY and loved your Bio as I, too, am always planning next years event the day after this one is finished! I love your eye for design and hope you return to custom work someday.

devon spec said...

Hi Jess, I'm Jodi. I found your blog through The Hostest with the Mostest. I love partying planning and you have tons of great ideas. I made the "biggest fan" fans for our girls basketball team this year. Keep up the awesome ideas!

Hannah S said...

Hi,
I found you on Etsy. You kindly answered a convo for me and now I've opened my own shop. Bonne Nouvelle.
Anyway, your party line helped inspire me to create my own in fabrics instead of paper! I am glad of you success! Keep it coming!

Carla said...

Hey Jess,
An old home town neighbor who has celebrated many childhood birthdays together. Just getting inspiration for future parties for our soon to be little girl.

Marie Reed said...

Hi Jess! If you're getting hits from France that's because I've spread the word about your gorgeous site! It's pure eye candy:) I found you through Shannon and am actually next in line to get my blog redesigned. I'm planning a pirate party for my son too;) His birthday is in December but I like to plan ahead!

I found you through Hair Candy Bows and have been following you since then. I have a two year old and a 7 month old (both girls), so I'm looking forward to your help with upcoming birthday parties!

Abby Marie said...

Hey Jess...you already know me & that I'm a polkadots & pirates stalker! I can proudly say you found me before you started your shop and I've been able to witness your great success & adorable creations & will continue to do so!

Tracy said...

I didn't know you had music on here! My volume has always been turned off. Fun!

marlana said...

Hi Jess, I'm Marlana. You helped a friend of mine with her son's 3rd birthday. The photos were so adorable that I had to check you out for myself. I've been hooked ever since! My daughter will be one soon... and I think a polka dot party is in order!

Krista said...

I just recently placed an order for my daughter's 1st birthday in July. I don't remember exactly how I found your site. I believe it was through Mighty Junior which has a link on Celebrity Baby Blog. I knew I didn't want to do a commercial party (Barbie or Disney) and I love polka dots. I enjoy looking at your custom projects on your blog. I can not wait to recieve my party supplies!

susan said...

Hi! i found you through etsy and just love your work. you are so creative and have a great eye for things

Beth Ann said...

I found your blog through Hostess with the Mostess and have been secretly blog stalking you. My sister-in-law and I are hosting a joint birthday party for our daughters this coming weekend and are shamelessly 'borrowing' some of your Little Miss ideas.

Jones Family said...

I can't remember how I found you. I missed out on personalized bday items which bummed me out but I love to see what you are up to every few days. So creative and cute!

Cupcake Carrie said...

Jess, well 1st of all i am one of the few hundreds who looked on your blog yesterday, but didn't leave a comment... my bad, i got distracted :) any-who! i think i found your blog on hwtm. i do remember the 1st post i saw was the little miss birthday party and ever since then i've been hooked!!! you have a great gift for planning parties, the details, colors, themes, everything. you totally inspire me, so keep up the amazing work!

Mommy To KyEvCam said...

Hi Jess!
I JUST started following your blog the other day. I've been looking for ideas for my son's first birthday party and found you in a number of places (Etsy, Hostess with the Mostest). I LOOVE your work!!

Staci said...

I found you through Etsy and just love your stuff!! I ordered a banner and got some creative ideas for my party that we just had last weekend. It was a hit!! Love all the great ideas!

Heidi Myhre said...

Jess,
I am the one from Idaho that checks your blog daily. Rach told me about your blog and I've been a fan ever since. I LOVE the banners you made for my girls and I love your blog!

Amy said...

Jess - I know Patti and she sings your praises all the time.. and its obvious why. Love your work. I check in weekly!

Jessica said...

I am not sure exactly how I found your blog, but I have been in party planning mode but I think I clicked a link from someone else's party blog. I love your stuff. Since I found your blog so close to my just turned 3 year old's b.day, I made my own crown b/c I loved all of yours so much...it was not nearly as cool as your and I hope to order things from you in the future.

lisalyn said...

Hi, I'm Lisa. I can't remember where I found your blog. You and I have emailed a few times and I was so impressed with your kind words and encouragement in the Party world.
I love to see all that you are doing. It is very inspiring. Great work! :)

Heather said...

I found your blog while searching for pink polka dot party ideas for my own little Avery. I think I clicked over from On the Dot Creations. I love seeing all the new ideas you post and am loving the flower-rimmed hats for Jozlyn's party!

The Bowes said...

Anyways- LOVE LOVE :)your site...and cant wait till my lil one is 2!! Maybe I should go ahead a order a year in advance:)..haha

Not just a Mommy! said...

Hi there, I'm Dawn and I found you through HWTM's blogging friends, since I'm on there too, and I heart all of your parties!

Jeanne said...

Hi Jess,

I found you on HWTM...let's just say that the pics from the Little Miss Avery party caught my eye and I haven't been able to keep my eyes off your site ever since. Your designs are just so beautiful that I've become addicted to see what you'll come up with next. Plus, I can spend hours getting to know new designers which you mention or introduce to us on your blog. Thank you for sharing.

Don't stop the great work, you inspire me.

Jeanne

For Your Inspiration said...

Hi Jess,

I found you through an Etsy search for party supplies and was instantly smitten. I don't think I've commented before...unfortunately I'm more of a lurker.

Still, I am in love, love, love with your parties and products. Such an inspiration. I have filed away the Little Miss party for my daughter.

Shannon said...

Well, actually YOU found ME! Does that count? It's me Shannon....you beloved blog designer! The one who loves google chatting with you!

You are a party ROCK STAR! Your stuff is awesome and sooooo inspiring!

KeriAnne said...

Hi! I just discovered you by searching for "birthday party" on Etsy. I am starting to plan my daughter's first birthday this August and you have the CUTEST stuff! I will definitely be purchasing from you very soon! I am so glad to have found you!

beals1113 said...

A current customer of yours, Amy Kleiner. I check your blog almost every day to see the new things you create...getting ideas for party #2 and hoping that you can fit me in for next year!! I originally found you on creativepartiesandshowers.com showcasing Beckett's 1st birthday party. As I had told you in an email, when I opened the box of decorations I had tears in my eyes! Totally exceeded my expectations!! You are sooo talented! :)
