I am so grateful to Kristi's artwork and blog. I read and go to all the time and love to read about your life! So real and awesome. I love you and feel like your a sister to me!!

wendy said...

I am so very grateful that I found my "lost" spiral ear ring. It had been missing for months after taking them out for a hair cut. I love your work Kristi and am so happy that you have found a way to make a living with your amazing creative energy.

Hi Kristi,

Happy (early) birthday!
I am very grateful that you were so kind to answer an email from me about a year and a half ago . You gave me some great advise on how to get started to learn about silversmithing. I took your advise along with a few classes and I now am preparing to sell my creations.
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my email. : )
You are an inspiration to me.

I am a follower of your blog and a face book fan.

I am forever gratefull for my daughters - they are my world, and my inspiration in my life. My oldest has Aspergers and is so amazing, she knows everything about everything! And my youngest is honestly the friendliest person I have ever met (not sure where she gets it from) They rock my world!

I am grateful that I live with two lovely people that support me, through grad school, my baking habits, and my obsession with video games. That are my partners in crime, even though one's one of my best friends and the other is my boyfriend. That I have support, love, and kindness. With that, I'm going to go drag them on a hike.

Happy early birthday!

This is, by the way, a very thoughtful blog as seen on the photos.

What I'm grateful for is that I'm still breathing. Quarterlife isn't easy for someone with big dreams and still single but love the adventures and the lil bit of naughtiness I do to make each day interesting to live.

Facebook and GFC follower here... avatarlady. =) More power to your shop. You've put so much effort into it I can see that just by browsing your blog the first time.

Happy Birthday!

Karen said...

I am grateful that my husband’s bike racing takes me to places like Santa Fe where I can make I can visit the Georgia O’Keeffe museum (everyone should make an annual O’Keeffe connection), visit galleries, see amazing artwork, stroll through places like the Plaza, and of course, the Jackalope . Then reflect on all that you see and be able to say to yourself, yeah, but Kristi Smith’s work is better than that. And then recognize that in your own neighborhood you have amazing artists and amazing people that world class places like Santa Fe can only display, we get to know them.

thanks so much for your amazing designs! i've been a follower of your blog for a while now, but now i've liked you on facebook too! will leave a comment there shortly :) i've told friends about your lovely spiral earrings, too, my favourite!

currently i am feeling extra grateful for my generous and understanding family members and my partner who have supported me from a distance through 10 months of anthropological fieldwork on another continent, who never give up on me and always remind me to be strong and inspired. i know they must have difficulty sometimes in my absence and i am acutely aware of how lucky i am to have them in my life -- because they understand what i am passionate about. they simply get it. i don't have to explain. & i know i couldn't do the work i do without them.
