Pillows: For Sale SOON !

Ok, so here are some details about the pillow making shop that I plan on opening this week ! I'm getting excited, and hope that you all are as well ! If you have any feedback on these ideas, I would love to hear them, so send your comments to my ASK box:

Cost per pillow:
$20/each, or 2 for $35.  When you factor in my costs to make each pillow, and then add the labour+time for sewing them (sewing each deer antler down is hard work!) this makes sense. Also, I discovered while browsing Etsy that this is almost half the price of the competitors. 

Colour & Appearance
I have a variety of different coloured fabrics (all floral, right now) and depending on the background colour, either a white or black accent colour will be used for the silhouettes. As of right now, I have only made the deer+wolf sets, but I have a few different design ideas for other sets as well !

What you get:
A unique, hand-made 15”x15” pre- stuffed pillow (why sell just a cover, and make you go buy a pillow insert yourself?!) that will finish off any home or bedroom :) . (Note: if you live in a far off country, and the cost of shipping will out-weigh the cost of a pillow insert, I’m sure we can figure something out)

Our moment has passed

Thank you all for your kind words on my last post about losing my dog, Mollie. I really appreciated it. These are just some silly photos I took outside in my yard, in between taking other photos (which I will post in the next couple days). I have been so busy these past two days, and it won't get any less busy anytime soon. I am doing school full-time, and then my office job after class for about 4 hours a day. I am exhausted ! I love my job, though, and I won't complain about having steady income again :) Hope you all are having a good week. x

RIP Mollie

It’s hard to believe that it was only a week ago, today that we first noticed a bump on my dog, Mollie’s, nose. In that week it grew into a tumour, caused nose bleeds, hyperventilating and a lot of pain for her. We decided last night that putting her down was the humane thing to do, since she was already 13 years old. My mom, dad, brother, and I took her to the vet this morning, after giving her a full steak for breakfast. We all sat with her, held her, and loved her until her last breath. Leaving her body on the floor of the vet’s office was the hardest thing in the world to do. It felt like we were abandoning a member of the family. The house feels so empty without Mollie here, and I think it will be a while until this feels like home again. Mollie, we love and miss you more than words can describe. You were truly the best dog, and one of the family. I miss you, Booboo.
