  • a custom gift

    A long time ago- ok, maybe it was just a couple years ago- I promised my newly wed sister and brother in law some homemade pillows for their bedroom. My sister had an idea of what she wanted so I bought supplies, the fabric, everything I needed to make a set of custom hand painted pillows... then life went a little crazy. We had a baby, moved out of the city, my husband took on a new job (all within about a 6 month time frame). So you can probably guess what happened. The pillow project was placed on the backburner for a little while. To give you an idea of how long this project was delayed- my sister and her husband visited us for our little girl's first birthday party and I was finally able to give the pillows to them.

    Sometimes things happen for a reason though. I posted a photo of her pillows on instagram and facebook and ended up with requests for more... which has now blossomed into a new idea for Savannah's Sunshine Shop. I'll be posting the new items soon so stay tuned!

    In the meantime, here are a few photos of the original pillows I made for my sister and her husband. These would be a sweet wedding or Valentine's Day gift!
