Pleated Pillow



I created the pillow above on Saturday! The pillow features about a dozen 1 inch pleats and about 100 colorful buttons hand sewn and layered on a scrap of linen. It took HOURS longer than I anticipated...mostly spent sewing on the layers of buttons...but that detail was so worth it! I like it!

I am not sure what I'm going to do with it yet...right now it's on the couch in the living room...where my cat, Yello, likes to sleep. I hope my cats don't discover it too soon. I can just imagine them manicuring their nails on it or getting playful with the buttons! Or...or... even playing hockey with the buttons after they discover how easy it is to pull them off!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
