Eco friendly decorative pillow

Just finished this deer pillow last night! It's made completely out of eco-felt which is made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles. This little pillow prevented a few plastic bottles from going into the landfill! It's soft too!

Feeling Groovy

Remember those groovy room beads that people hung in their windows and doorways in the 1960's? Those were my inspiration for this retro looking pillow! The RETRO BEADS pillow is now available in light blue and orange! Fabric was designed by me and can only be found in my Etsy shop. Buy it at the FindersKeepers etsy shop here

Office Sneak Peek Photos!

I have finally gotten around to painting the office/2nd bedroom! Here are a couple of sneak peek photos. There is still a lot of decorating left to do in the room so once I'm finished I'll be posting more photos. I need to figure out how to hide all the ugly electrical cords, anyone have any good ideas?

I mixed the green color myself. I took this photo when the lighting wasn't great, it's actually a bit lighter than it appears in these photos. The next set of photos I take I will make sure it's nice and bright in the room so the color shows better.

The Pratt desk is from West Elm, when I saw this design I knew this was the desk for me! I love it's mid-century modern design and the white metal drawer is a great contrast with the dark walnut wood. I already had the white eiffel chair so it was a perfect match!

The crow pillow in this photo is one of my designs and can be purchased in my shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/amyburkhart

Logo at last!

So I've been meaning to design myself a logo for quite sometime now but I just never seemed to be able to find the time. This week I started playing around with some ideas but I just wasn't completely happy with them. As I was driving my long and boring commute home from work today it finally came to me and this is the result!

For some reason some of my best ideas have come to me while sitting in traffic and staring at the tail lights in front of me. I guess it's my brains way of dealing with traffic!
