Thanks for your BIG TIME support

Yeppers, day 3 of our 1st Birthday Bash is underway.  This is getting really exciting.  I keep saying it but this past year has been unbelievable in so many ways.  One of them being having a chance to connect with friends, mentors and even gaining friendships with some peeps across the globe.
I have invited some of these friends, supporters and mentors to help me out with a virtual birthday card of sorts and here is what they had to say.



The fantastic Jan from Poppytalk, who has been a wonderful supporter of my shop since the beginning and has helped many other makers get their art seen had this to say.


"We're big fans of Wind & Willow Home and wishing you many happy returns!"


Danielle, of the must follow blog The Jealous Curator, artist in her own right and mentor (Girl Crush) sent this.

 "Happy Birthday to Wind & Willow Home! Congrats on your amazingness during year one.  xo"

 Super Mom, Gabrielle of the wonderful Design Mom blog (who toured my house on her Living With Kids feature) had these supportive words to say:

 "Congrats on the 1st anniversary, Araya!"

"CONGRATS!!!  That's so exciting that you're celebrating your 1st year - doesn't it go fast??  You should be so proud of yourself - look at how far you've come."


 One of my FAVORITE shops ever and a Must Visit in Minneapolis, not to mention a group of awesome people is Forage Modern Workshop and to prove even further how cool they are, here is what they had to say:

"Forage Modern Workshop + Wind and Willow = Hearts All Around
Happy Birthday, Wind + Willow! We absolutely love your products - they totally brighten up our showroom. To celebrate, we'll be offering 10% discount on all Wind+Willow products from February 11 - 17 both in store and online. We might even add balloons..."

 Graphic designer, curator and trend extraordinaire Aaron De Simone of I heart luxe featured some of my products on his guest feature Luxe Pins over on one of my fav. blogs SF Girl By the Bay.  He sent over a little note:

"Congratulations Araya! 
I've loved your products ever since I first saw them and I'm really excited to see what is next for Wind + Willow!"

 Audrey of the super lovely blog This Little Street  (my happy place away from home) made this fun, fun, fun graphic for me and had this to say.

  "Araya - Simply put: there's not one thing you make that I don't want to get for myself. I am SO glad that you decided to put your talents into Wind & Willow a year ago - what a successful year for you! Wishing many many MANY more of them. Hugs. Audrey - This Little Street"
