Here are the tags for this year’s donations to the silent auction at the Arts and Crafts Mission Market at my church. It’s such a worthy cause . . . all the money goes to a local daycare center for families in need. Click here to see how to make the Christmas wreath pillow and here to see the Americana pillows. P.S. Below are my gift baskets from markets past, each based on . . . you guessed it . . . a pillow! ♥
Great baskets and a great cause!
Thank you, Kenley! 🙂
What a great cause to support. Your pillows will be a hit!
Thank you, Lois! I love it that it’s win-win-win . . . I had fun making them, someone else gets them, and someone else gets the $$!
Those are so wonderful and creative. How lucky for the recipient and those who will benefit from your generosity. I’m going to take a closer look at each one.
I had to enlarge the photo and stare at it so I could savour all the details. Unbelievable work!
Thank you, Alex! Now I want to make gift baskets for a living! 🙂
I would buy a whole booklet of tickets to win one of these 🙂
Ahh . . . you’re so kind!!! 🙂
Love your baskets they are such a great Idea
Thank you, Silvia! It was really fun starting with a pillow and building a theme around it!
this is such a wonderful idea! I love the mission market concept i might have to borrow it for our own fundriser events lol
If you’d like to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’d be glad to connect you with the lady who runs this . . . I know she’d have lots of great tips! 🙂
Those baskets are gorgeous! You have such a great way with presentation — the colors and arrangement of each is so harmonious and pretty.
Thank you! It was so much fun to choose a pillow I’ve made, use it to determine a “theme” for the basket (a season, a holiday, a color, a shape, a style . . .) and then go hunting for all the little items . . . actually, it’s one of my FAVORITE things to do! 🙂
Once again, you have created something so special. You have an incredible talent. These live up to your blog name….they are pillows with something special added, a cherry on top”. Better than the best piece of apple pie, with a scoop on top! Love these! –Vickie
Wow . . . what a LOVELY PERFECT compliment! Besides all your crafty talent, you have a way with words. THANK YOU, Vickie!!! 🙂
I’m sure your church auction organizers love having you in the congregation! What lovely gift baskets! 🙂
Thank you! They do an amazing job on the market . . . vendors, silent auction, a dinner . . . and bierocks you can buy to bring home for your own dinner! 🙂
Good luck with the auction. I hope it will be a huge success. 🙂
