Pilloos & Such

I have felt an urge to be crafty lately! Perhaps my creative side has been neglected by all the intellectual studying I'm doing. Whatever it is I am having a lot of fun. I have come up with a lot of creative ideas and how I can possibly use it to hopefully make some extra cash...since I work for a non-profit agency I'm not exactly rolling in the dough. So this is my tiny business proposition and if you have any ideas for me let me know! It all started when I saw a really cute throw pillow at Target that was $30! Outrageaous!! Since when do we need to get a small business loan to buy some throw pillows? So I made my own! Then I thought, I bet I could make a bunch of throw pillows and sell them to my co-workers and to my friends! So then I came up with the name "Pilloos & Such", because I don't want to limit myself to just pillows. I was born with crafty genes and with some help with ideas maybe I could make enough to cover my expenses. Who knows maybe I could do the saturday market, christmas craft fairs...and eventually sell my product world wide! Well maybe that is too much but I'd be interested in hearing what you think!

I recovered this pillow that was in my office and gave it a little make over! This is Just the beginning of Pilloos & Such


  1. Do Etsy! And the craft fairs/farmers markets, etc. It's way cute. Even better if there's a way to browse/buy online.

  2. I would totally buy stuff from you! Way to go crafty lady :)

  3. A lot of girls start sewing stuff and being crafty when their "nesting." Maybe this is you....
