What. An. Eventful. Week.

The title pretty much sums it up, but what’s the fun of a blog, if you don’t really blog about anything?

As my second to last semester of school wraps up, I have finally been able to focus more on my pillows. I’ve listed more, including an eco-friendly option, with 100% organic fabric for the front, and an eco-friendly pillow insert (made out of corn)!

Also, in other big news, I have been featured in a treasury! See it here. Thrush, a very nice person who sells beautiful vintage clothing, was nice enough to curate a treasury list with all undiscovered shops. It is really nice to have someone who you don’t know help you out! It makes one reevaluate how much a small act of kindness can go in the world.

So, in honor of that kindness, here is a coupon code for 30% off! Just enter KINDNESS in the coupon box before checking out.

It makes the world go round.

See you soon!

Ready, set, (holding breath). Anxiety.

I absolutely hate anxiety. I participated in track in high school, and my race running career was short-lived for several reasons.

  1. Let’s face it: I’m not a fast runner. Turns out to be pretty crucial.
  2. That five second interval that one must wait for the gun to fire, to signal the beginning of the race was absolutely overwhelming to me. I can’t stand that type of anticipation!
  3. I’m not athletic. Turns out that is pretty crucial too.

Anyways, to get to my point, I’ve had a fairly successful week in terms of getting some pillows made, and now, I’m just waiting!

I’ve done tons of research involving Etsy and from that I’ve gathered that new sellers need to be patient. So please, will me the power of patience, hehe! So to bide the time until someone finds me and loves my pillows as much as I do…I will continue to gather beautiful fabric, and keep making pillows to my heart’s content.

 

In other developments, I have began to find eco-friendly alternatives in both my fabric choices and the actual pillow inserts. I purchased some Organic fabric, designed by Cloud 9 Fabrics, from no other store than the amazing Fancy Tiger! As for the pillows, I’ve ordered some from an online store that are made from corn, and I’m looking into a bamboo alternative. This is really exciting, because I thought this was more of a long-term goal, and I’m so glad to venture into this area so soon!

I really want to let everyone know how much I appreciate you supporting me. My family and my friends have really been amazing, and I have really been relying on you all for support! I heart you so much!

As for my anxiety, it will hopefully subside soon. It is definitely magnified this week, because of finals! Gag. One more week. One. More. Week. Then I will have ample time to focus on Lilly Ella Collections!

Bless you for being here.

I am just full of updates.

Well, the past two days, I have been super busy, working all hours into the night, and I have finally listed two items. I feel like this process will only get easier from here, and, sigh, I’m relieved.

I am so happy to finally have them up, and can’t wait to make more, and also start brainstorming on other projects that will fit in well with Lilly Ella Collections.

Stay tuned and don’t forget the coupon codes!
