Prep Work

I painted my toenails just to stuff my feet into sneakers. I put lipstick on to sew in my pajamas. I do my hair up nicely to watch TV with my husband. I put a dirty fork on the counter so the sink can be empty. Aaand I cut up perfectly good fabric just to sew it back together.

These things may be a little nutty but they make me feel good. What are little things that make you feel good? I challenge you to do one of those things today.

Speaking of cut up fabric that’s sewn back together, I showed a sample of my letter pillows in this post. Well, the time has come to reveal the etsy listing. Get ’em while the getting’s hot!

Here are the options on the pillow covers. I’ll be adding more sizes and colors as we go. They’re envelope-backed. And yes, as part of my prep work for launching these pillows, I made sure they actually fit into the pillow form. Who’da thunk?!

  • Four background colors to choose from: Black, Beige, Grey, and Teal.
  • Buy just the 12×12 inch pillow case, or add-on a pillow form to save you a trip to the store.
  • I can do any letter, uppercase or lowercase. For now, it’s one letter per pillow.

I used Sam Hunter’s time-tracking method to help determine pricing. These pillow covers are only $35 plus shipping! What a deal.

Prices increase on custom orders beginning tomorrow, February 1st. Everything that’s already listed as a completed item in my shop will stay the same price. New items and custom orders increase by 10% tomorrow.


Downtown, Up On the Roof, Or….?

Where do you go when you’re feeling down? You’re just having an all-around rotten day, or are starting to come down with a cold, or got a bit of bad news.

Me? I’m a dollar store junkie. I walk in and think, “I can have anything I want in here!” Absolutely nothing is out of my budget. It’s an empowering feeling. Plus, a lot of the stuff in there is junk that’s not worth a whole dollar. So I get to comb through the isles and do a little treasure hunt.

1 dollar

Today’s purchases? A cat-claw trimmer, a bag of carrots, coral colored nail polish, and a relaxing oatmeal bath mix. I feel wealthy and smart… and only spend $4.
