A Pillow for Mark

You may recall waaay back in March I hosted a Favorite Things Exchange and Giveaway.  I randomly chose two winners and made each winner a pillow of their choice.

Mark won through Google Friend Connect and Ms. Jaime won through email.  Jaime chose an exact replica of my Pottery Barn Pillow Knockoff and Mark chose the Felt Dahlia Pillow, similar to the pillow I made for my sister's birthday. 

Mark wrote a hilarious post describing the pillow I made him and I thought you might enjoy reading it as much as I did.

Mark makes me laugh!  I'm fortunate to call him my friend.

  6. Hey, I just woke up to three more Followers and I was like "what?". Seriously, what would happen overnight that three people would start following me? And then I start to go through my Google Reader, get down to the D's and see this. And now it makes perfect sense!
    Listen, your pillow(sorry, I mean "my" pillow) is proudly on display on my new bookcases. Seriously, I love it to pieces and although it would look great on a sofa(if I had one), it's safer up there and out of the reach of my kid-crew.
    I still am so excited that I won that pillow and even though I had to go through so much "drama...", it was well worth it.
    Your Friend, m.
