Starting 2010 With a Giveaway!


It seems like it has been so long since I have posted on my blog. I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday and I sincerely wish the very best to you and your families in the New Year. 2010 has started off rather busy as we are getting our Spring line finished. I am so excited with some of the new designs so I thought I would share a few with all of you.

2009 was an amazing year for our burlap pillows, so we will still continue making those as well as some new designs in different fabrics. I would love to hear your comments so please leave a post.

Now that the holidays are over and we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel we thought it would be a perfect time for a giveaway. I love giveaways with a twist. Here it is… Tell me the most creative thing you did in 2009, I love to hear about how creative all of you are. I have decided to offer our Piano Recital 20"x20" pillow slip.
Here are just a few other new designs.






I hope the rest of your week is filled with love and laughter,

Your work is lovely. I'm a huge fan of narrative and etched elements on fabric and walls. Can't wait to see what you continue to offer us. It is such eye candy. Sea Witch

Happy New Year
Love the burlap pillow designs! The most creative thing I did in 2009 was probably help my daughter with the total renovation of her first Condo ... definitely a labour of love ♥ :-)
Thank you for your generous giveaway.

*The Beautiful Life* said...

Hmm... something creative I did... OOH! I know! I painted my kitchen cabinets, which then lead to the rearranging of just about everything else in my home!! (Don't know how THAT happens, but it always does... one change leading to many others...).

I love your pillow range and wish you much, much success in 2010! :)

Your pillow covers are simply swoon worthy! I love your designs. I'm not very creative, but in 2009 I attempted to decorate my apartment to look like it was in Paris (still at it).

Jen R. said...

Your new designs are just beautiful! I think the most creative thing I did this year is make my lil bebe art studio...it is small but still a work in progress, where I will hopefully be more creative in the new year. Besos, Rose

Polly said...

Hi Michelle! I feel like I haven't "chatted" with you in so long! Hope all is well, and 2010 is being good to you so far!

That first pillow is beautiful! I also really like the Carte Postal one as well.

Hmmm....most creative thing I did in 09? Let's see....probably redoing my guest room and bath with some color. I'm afraid of color, so it really pushed me to my limits!

Thanks for offering such a wonderful giveaway! I've got my fingers crossed already!

Michele P. said...

I like the burlap pillow designs very much! I will say that I am not a very creative person, but this year I tried my hand at making homemade envelopes out of wallpaper, scrap book paper and old calendars. My 8 yr old and I also did some decorating with rubber stamps and glitter glue to liven up those plain white envelopes. Wishing you a wonderful 2010.

Jacqueline said...

Dear Michelle,
First of all Happy New Year and I wish you and your family many happy and magical times in the coming year. Also, I've had my rocking chair covered in your material. I will send you a photograph A.S.A.P. It looks wonderful.
Well, I think that the most creative thing that I did was to paint and distress about 6 pieces of furniture......oh, and decorate the house for Christmas.
I love your new pillows and am now going to have to buy more !!!! XXXX

Julie@beingRUBY said...

HI Michelle
Happy New Year. I hope you enjoyed Christmas and the holiday break...

Well I think the most creative thing I did was blog... Last year was a nightmare for me in work terms but in the midst of that, I found blogging and surely remembering that I did have a creative bone in my body.. ha ha.. actually made a huge difference to my sanity... Thanks for the chance to win one of your gorgeous pillows.. Julie

Federica said...

Dear Michelle, what a fantastic way to start a new year! Your pillows are gorgeous and I'm really enjoying the three pillows I took recently on your Etsy shop. I would be fantastic if I won this one :-)
I think I got really creative with my photos in 2009 but in 2010 I will be more and more creative!
Hugs
Federica

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Michelle, Your pillows are just gorgeous and I would be very happy to win that beautiful pillow you are offering! Last year I decorated type trays and shadow boxes, altered bottles, made collages etc. but I don't know which project had been the most creative one. I had fun working on each of them.
Hugs,
Julia

Cathy said...

Look at those gorgeous new pillows! I love them. Especially the big one! Nothing like a great big pillow to tuck under your head while watching t.v.

I would have to say the most creative thing I did in 2010 was create a website and brochure that allowed me to combine all of my websites in one place making it easy for new customers to find me.

Have a great day,

xo Cath

June said...

Such a fun giveaway idea. I was so happy to see that you had posted. I know you must still be crazy busy, but I'm so happy that things are so good for your business. It heartens me that we still make time for beauty even in these times of financial uncertainty.
Let's see...the most creative thing I did in 2009 was to create a gate in the garden from an old iron headboard. I love how inviting it looks and can't wait to have vines and roses growing over it this Summer.
hugs

Andrea said...

So pretty! I love, love the pillows,something creative I did would be my first article for somerset life. Hand made flowers tucked into old ledger paper.

Linda Carswell said...

As always your cushions are amazing!
As you know the most creative thing for me in the constant work on the 'petite maison' which is now close to completion....but this year see us building our selves a 'real' home...so it is all very exciting but lots of work!

Regards, Linda

Hi Michelle, Love the pillows! The most creative thing I did in 2009 was move into our current home with only 4 pieces of furniture. I had a clean slate to decorate and what fun it has been.

The postal tied pillow cover is exquisite - 2010 is going to be a great year. The most creative thing I did in 2009 was to design our tiny farm dreamhouse. Thank you for a lovely giveaway.

I know 2009 was a whirlwind year for you...with lots of beautiful creativity flowing from your fingers...as for me...I know have a closet full of "painting" clothes.

Love your blog and your pillows! Just beautiful!

WendyW said...

Hi Michelle, first of all, I just LOVE all your cushions ... just purchased one last weekend from Cathy Penton's fabulous new shoppe, Simple Things Small Joys, in Highfields, Toowoomba,Queensland, Australia for my sister in law Rachelle as a birthday present. I have had such a busy year last year with work and family commitments but made a big decorative creative effort to put my huge collection of Christmas items up to make my house really festive. I also love sewing but have so little time to do anything these days but had a lot of fun making aprons (my latest sewing craze) by Taylor Made Designs for a few of my closest friends for Christmas. For a lot of the year, I love looking at all the beautiful bloggs around and making a New Year Creative List of must-do's!! I hope 2010 will be a much better creative year for me!! Thanks for your inspiration. From WendyW

Bridget said...

is the giveaway still happening! if so, i want in! they're lovely!

DesertChildAZ said...

I'm still obsessed with burlap! Love your pillow designs!

I would have to say that the most creative thing I did in 2009 was to organize my entire wedding in Paris myself, from 5,000 miles away. It turned out beautiful.

Hope your New Year is getting off to a new start.

Marigio said...

I just love burlap pillows... so I just keep my fingers cross.
