Morning!
Remember my beautiful pillow covers I showed you yesterday....
Well guess what I have for YOU!?!
A giveaway!!!

Yes. The super sweet owner Karen of ElemenoPillows Etsy Shop where I purchased them is giving one lucky reader a:

$30.00 Credit to her shop!

You lucky ducks. I really want to win my own giveaway! 
And how fabulous is the name of her shop. Love it.


First of all let's read about ElemenoPillows for a minute shall we...Karen says:
ElemenOPillows is my new creation featuring modern, fresh, chic and affordable slipcovers for pillows. A pillow slipcover can be slipped over a pillow you already have or over a pillow form that you purchase from a craft store or online. It's a wonderful way to give a room an instant and inexpensive makeover!

After launching ElemenOPillows on Etsy a few short weeks ago, I have already filled orders for hundreds of pillow slipcovers! The response has been amazing and I am having an absolute blast with it!

The business satisfies my love of fabric, my long-standing love for sewing and decorating and also my entrepreneurial spirit.

I began sewing when I was 7 or 8 years old. A miniature pink plastic sewing machine was one of my most cherished childhood possessions. I would create clothing and home decor (of course) for all of my Barbies and other dolls for hours on end.

I then learned to crochet, macrame (okay, who remembers macrame?!), quilt, knit, rug-hook... you name it. I even took sewing classes every year in summer school for quite a few years. The student to teacher ratio was, not surprisingly, quite small in those classes. But the point being.... I LOVE creating. Particularly with textiles.

As an adult, my creative itch now gets satisfied by choosing and working with a variety of beautiful fabrics. There are such wonderful patterns, textures, styles and colors from which to choose. And there's such satisfaction in creating an item that has the potential to transform a room for a perfect stranger in another place...sometimes half way around the world. I feel an odd kinship with these people~my customers.

My husband Chris (who was my high school and college sweetheart) and I have raised three wonderful sons who are all now out of our nest. This formerly-loud-and -busy-but-now-sadly-empty nest is currently being happily feathered with hundreds and hundreds of pillow cover orders, stacks and stacks of pillow covers and bolt after bolt of fabrics that I so adore! It brings me joy.  Working with the grown-up version of that little pink sewing machine....
Amazing Karen.
She opened her shop October 16, 2011 and has already had 267 sales!
That is a lot of pillow covers!

Check out some of my other favorites:

Stunning right!?!

Ok.. So what you must do to win is simple.
Be a reader of this little blog of mine, head over to the best pillow shop on Etsy and tell me what pillow cover you would order if you win.
Easy Peasy.
I will announce the winner Thursday!
