Jillian's Final Project - The "Got Milk?" Pillow

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Above, several views of Jillian's final project of the weekend and her favorite. Eleanor is happy too, having been able to be 'front and center' in this creation.
I'll be looking forward to seeing her living room with her new creations. There were several times where I sat back watching her and reflecting on how quickly her childhood seemed to flash by. All in all, a great weekend and I'm grateful she'll have these little tokens as a memory.  Times like this to me are precious. 

Thanks for letting me share our combined mom and daughter efforts with you.

Each of these pillows is so wonderful, I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried!!! Trudi, thank you, thank you for sharing this creative journey with us!!! And thank you for making and sharing these precious memories too. It seems like yesterday that my daughter was in pigtails - now she's a Mom with 3 kids of her own. I can't believe how quickly time passes. I'm soooo happy that you've had a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Terri

love the 'got milk' theme and mother/daughter time sounds very special-- I'm not complaining but I have 3 sons and a grandson :-)

I am so in love with these pillows. I want to buy one. Can I buy one? I should first check your Etsy shop or ask you how much shouldn't I? If anything, you should send these into Stampington. I could see these in Somerset Life or you could submit them to Somerset Workshop and do a whole article on how to make them. They are gorgeous. These are the first mixed media pillows that I've seen that I've just fallen in love with.
