When this blog hop was first announced I could not wait to jump onto the band wagon. Thank you to Madame Samm and our cheerleader Linda for all your hard work.
The first thing I did was to download the blank display button provided by Madame Samm.
Next, WORDS, words that were important to me. Words that described me. Words that I taught my children. The words came easily, there are many words but only a few that are special to me.
I jotted them down on the blank canvas...
Wow, that was fun.
What, I need to make something with these words.
Oh my, I am not a creative person, no, not at all.
My special words were traced on to white Kona.
I choose some of my prettiest Prescencia Threads and started to stitch.
Hey, this is fun!
I even added some glitter thread to my word glitter!
I added some bling with my I-Rock Tool.
I was going to use my table-topper stand but, been there, done that, so I thought...
How about a small pillow?
That might be cute.
Well, I did the best I could and well let's say...
I am laughing as I look at this lumpy little pillow!
I sat and thought, feeling a little let down with my lumpy baby pillow.

When, all of a sudden it came to me. This was not about the project for me, this was about ME. What was important to me, what I liked, how I liked to treat others. And after sitting and thinking I decided I liked my silly, little lumpy pillow.
Words, it was all about the words.
