I just love pillows so much.

A little too much. My next project is to make a TON of pillows (probably around 5) to have on my bed. I’ve wanted to do this since, like, the 8th grade.

Here’s some ideas I have.

Any Scrabble Tile Letter - Monogrammed Gift - PILLOW COVERS ONLY. $19.00, via Etsy.

This would be super easy to make! I just need some fabric paint and BAM. And I could make it in any color… hm, maybe red? To match 1/2 the stuff I own? I could even make it “E 13” or “E 7” cuz those are my favorite numbers…

Puzzle Piece Pillows - Pick 2 and Save - Personalized - Custom - Geek Chic Home Decor. $47.00, via Etsy.

OH MY GOD, HOW ADORABLE ARE THESE? But so expensive 😦

making this fabric into a pillow! :)

I have this fabric, and I’m planning on making it into a cute little pillow – maybe 12″ by 12″?

Air Travel Pillow. $22.00, via Etsy.

I NEED SOME FABRIC LIKE THIS. It’s so… happy.

postal pillow cover - 16 inch x 24 inch - lumbar. $31.50, via Etsy.

WANT. Seriously, how much cuter could you get?!

Anyways, check out all of my pillow-spiration (uh yeah, that’s a word. As of now.) here 🙂 And let me know if you have some other good ideas!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Spotlight Post: My favorite apps for NOT procrastinating

We all procrastinate at some point. Don’t try to deny it.

To try to combat this terrible habit, I found some really good apps that keep me on track with school-work and such.

1. Wunderlist: This is a task list creator, but it’s also great for use as a planner. You can even change the background design :3

2. Simplenote: This is a list maker, sort of like Evernote

3. Evernote: This is another list maker

4. Clearly: This app lets you see articles without the ads and such, and it connects with Evernote so you can save your highlighted article for future use!

5. Evernote Web Clipper: This app is just like Clearly, but it saves the article you’re reading right to Evernote (without ads), instead of letting you highlight them

6. Weekplan: This is a planner, I used it last year for school-work and it works really well! You can make things “important” and even cross things off your daily list of tasks!

7. StayFocusd: With this app, you can limit the amount of time you can spend on certain sites each day – for instance, you can give yourself 40 minutes a day to use Tumblr, Facebook, and Youtube  (all together). This is great for keeping you from procrastinating!

8. Noteboard: An app that lets you create sticky notes!

9. Springpad: This is a list maker, but in the form of notebooks (AND YOU CAN DESIGN YOUR OWN!!! MAKING THE COVERS DIFFERENT COLORS!!! *FAINT*)

10. Wishpot: This isn’t a very productive app, but it does let you create wishlists and add things via the web using a button provided on their website

If you have any other good websites/apps to share, please do! 🙂

Until next time, Em 🙂

Spotlight Post: Mug Collection

So I’ve decided to do a little series about collections I have… the first collection I’m going to cover is my mug collection!

This is the mug that started my collection, it’s from my mom’s old work, and I love it because it’s a pretty off-white color, like vanilla bean ice cream, and it has a black rim

I got this mug for my birthday, it definitely fits my personality 🙂

This is the back of the “Give me chocolate or give me death” mug

Obviously I got this mug for my birthday

I got this mug for my birthday, currently it’s holding chocolates that I also got for my birthday

This is a mug cozy I got for my birthday, it’s made from an old sweater sleeve

This is a cat mug that I got for my birthday

When you turn the cat mug upside down it looks like this! 🙂

Until next time, Em 🙂
