oh hey, a give-away

It's been a long while since I've posted anything here on the blog.

I think about it often.

Writing a quick post, or throwing a few pictures up, but the truth is, pillow making keeps me really busy.  But that's not a complaint, at all!  I love this new direction I've taken.  In fact, this new direction has given me reason to celebrate.

I have over 350 followers on Instagram and have had over 50 sales since I opened my little etsy shop late last year.  When I first started listing these pillows, I thought, well if I sell a few, that'll be great...but then I started getting requests for custom orders and having pillows sell out within a few days of posting a batch of them.  Completely beyond my expectations.  So incredibly blessed.  I'm loving what I'm doing.  Like the saying goes, "Do what you love, love what you do."  That's totally what's going on right now.  Most of my "free time" is spent behind my sewing machine.  

Anyways, I have a few things to celebrate:

350+ followers on Instagram
50+ etsy shop sales
my birthday (February 16th)

Soooooooo, how about a GIVE AWAY?!

You can enter right now until the clock strikes midnight on February 16.  Winner will be announced before noon on February 16th!

Good luck!

  10. I love the 'oh, deer' pillow, I think if you made a pillow with some gold patches incorporated, it'd look amazing. Maybe gold, black, white, and a light pink.

  12. I've been following your instagram feed with all of your gorgeous pillows for a while...I hope I win! ;) You do such a great job and I am always SO impressed with your straight lines. I've been sewing a long time and I don't think I've ever been able to do lines like that! I think I need a lesson, lol! =)

  18. Never in my life have I wanted a pillow more! Your stuff is amazing and I drool over all of them. My biggest problem is finding one I like more than the others - trust me when I say I struggle with that. Then they're sold out. Then I'm bugging you on IG. One day. I'll find one that I NEED. :)
