My name is Danni Dawson, proud mother to four wonderful children, married to my high school sweetheart and living in the Midwest state of Wisconsin. I love to cook, bake and be creative. I worked full time in finance until my third child was three months old then quit to stay home and raise my kids. As much as I loved being a mom, graham crackers and diapers just weren’t enough and my creative mind was going stir crazy.
MY INTERNET STORY
Back in 1997, I got on the Internet when it was still pretty young and AOL and GeoCities were the prominent names; Google and Facebook weren’t even around yet. A month later I created a website called FamilyCorner.com. I developed it over the years, teaching myself HTML, networking with other webmasters and growing it into a profitable business. I sold that site in November of 2007 and began blogging six months later.
Throughout the years I’ve shared my creativity through other companies and sites. I worked as the craft expert for Disney’s Kaboose.com (AKA Spoonful.com), and created fun kid’s crafts for them from 2005-2010, and later for Spoonful as well. I have been published by many online magazines, including SheKnows.com and Family.com. You may have seen my work in Parents Magazine, Redbook, Mixing Bowl magazine, The Chicago Tribune and several others. I also worked as a designer for DecoArt and several other brands. I’ve worked for and with numerous companies and sites, such as General Mills, Yahoo, Kix Cereal, I Love to Create, and many more.
