I've been lost in gardening over the last week. Didn't even know it had been 5 days since I last made a post! It's that time of spring when you go out to put something in the garage, then you stop by the garden to check on the micro-growth of your hostas or the macro-growth of your clematis and you end up weeding for 45 minutes or trimming your front hedges for four hours.....
I have been working on some projects. I've been painting a little chest to keep my new chair company and it is almost ready. It would already been done, but there's a big party today that I have to get ready for. It's called Pillowpalooza 2012- a party just for pillows! Pillows deserve a little attention now and then don't you think? I've never been one to miss a party, so I had to make something to wear!
A couple of years ago I was reading a magazine while I was working out and saw a picture of what I thought was a pillow made to look like a doughnut. Turns out it wasn't a pillow - actually I don't remember what it was - but ever since then I have been wanting to make a pillow that looks like a doughnut. I haven't actually done that, because I wasn't sure what I would DO with it once it was made.
Yesterday I decided to throw caution to the wind - because what fun would a party called Pillowpalooza be without a doughnut. And, if I can talk her in to it, I'm going to give it to my sister. She kind of likes doughnuts.
She likes doughnuts like I like white cake with white icing....
No one deserves it more.
Do you think she will like it?
Problem #2 - How do you stage a doughnut pillow when you don't have any children's "stuff" or children? I'm going to take it to a friends house who just had a baby and use it as a photo prop. I think the little baby will be all the staging it needs!
In the meantime, my little doughnut pillow will just have to lay out in the sun or relax in a garden chair.
Tomorrow I will show you how I made my little doughnut with strawberry icing with sprinkles.
In the meantime, I hope it has fun at the party! Maybe we can go to a few other places while we are out.
Make something wonderful today!
