Pillows, pillows, pillows

So today I'm going to kind of ride on my niece's shirttails with this blog.  A lot of you already know Amy of "Design Intervention".  If you HAVEN'T ever visited her blog, make sure to do so - you will find she is one very talented young lady (yep... the apple doesn't fall very far from the auntie tree!!!! LOL)!  ANYWAY - her latest project involves ME!!  Oh happy day!  I have my own business doing various things with graphic design.  My latest endeavor allows me to take ANY image (as long as I can get it into my computer), print it, and process it onto numerous different items and create a permanant image.  No, it's not screen printing, and it's nothing like an iron-on transfer.  Wash it or scrub it - it's not going anywhere!  I can create anything as small as a locket or as large as a tile mural to cover an entire wall.  Isn't that cool!!!???

On Amy's last visit here she discussed with me her desire to make pillows with graphics printed on them - in particular, images from the Graphic's Fairy.   She asked if I would like to team up with her on this effort.  Needless to say, I jumped at the chance.  We have been in the development stages of this project for a while.  Between her own "Deployment Projects" (everything she is doing while "Handsome Hubby" is deployed),  my health issues, AND trying to find fabrics that would work, it has taken us a little longer to get going on this than we originally planned.

Well, this week Amy was finally able to whip up the pillows.  Might I say, "They are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!

She has opened an Etsy shop with not only these pillows, but some of the other items she is making as well.  Since these are our first "Samples", they are being offered at a slightly lower price than they will be once we get into production.  So hurry - now's your chance to pick up one of these beauties at a bargan price!! 

Here are some pictures of the pillows:

I have some ideas for new and improved designs, so be sure to check her Etsy shop often! 

Thanks for visiting.  I'm anxious to hear what you think about these pillows!

UPDATE:  All of these pillows have already sold...
they went quickly. 
Amy and I will be working on some more pillows for her ETSY shop real soon.
