Be Merry

I am welcoming in December and the Holiday Season with a new blog appearance and banner today. Awwwww, December. My child turns 16 this month. Nothing more to say about that. Today. I am happy to have it happen and also digging in my heels like Fred Flintstone. But let's think about this. I will give a pillow away to one of you as I appreciate it so much that you stop by and look at my view.

This pillow is completely hand made by me. The poinsettia ornie is hand painted and grungied up. The back is a black and taupe homespun with an envelope closure. There is an inner pillow I also made and stuffed very firmly in a fit of rage. Not really, I just like things firm. 'Be Merry' has been machine embroidered. It is 12 x 16 inches in size.

Leave a single comment on this post. I will randomly select a winner and announce the name next Monday, 7 December.

Again, thank you so much. I appreciate you more than you know.


  1. Love your new blog look and that pillow! That pillow would match my Christmas decor perfectly!

  2. It's adorable! I would like to win the pillow, please and thank you.

  3. Hey Robin,
    It's so good to hear from you. I SO enjoyed sitting next to you in Rebecca's class. It really would not have been the same without your hilarious comments.
    Your 'be merry' pillow is absolutely charming, and I would love to be entered into your generous giveaway. You are a very talented gal....there's a lot of talent in Oklahoma! :)
    Take Care, Cammy

  7. Happy December!

    Know what you mean about that turning 16 thing! Mine graduates this school year... sigh.

  8. Hi. I just found you from somebody else's blog... who knows who..?? I like your stuff and I thought the pillow was VERY cute so I decided to leave a comment. I also saved you in my faves so I can stop by again. I see you're from OK... I'm from TX.. neighbors!

  9. Ok, I'm a shameless hussy for anything you sew!
    Now if you remember, I am still serious about that order I placed. I hope you didn't get swine flu just to get outta doing it.

    I'll call early next week and see what's up with you and if you feel up to coming out to Mustang to see me when I'm in for Dad.

    Great new look too!
    XO, Babe

    XO Nancy

  13. Love the new look, love the pillow, love you, love everything! Mwah!

  14. I am so inspired by your creativity. I also love to be create things. Sometimes I struggle with trying to balance my career, family & creativity. Sometimes I allow myself to get too serious, but then when I allow my creative side to surface, I find so much contentment and peace. Love the pillow
