This blog was created to sell 1000 handmade pillows to raise money
for my wedding. Like many brides to be on a budget it gets very
expensive to plan the simplest of weddings. The taxes and gratuity
alone for an average wedding party is enough to scare anyone. Then you
add the costs of a wedding dress, photographer, videoagrapher, flowers,
ceremony, cake, reception…You get the idea.

I am not rich and neither is the man that I am planning to marry. So
this is the only way I could think of to raise enough money to pay for
a simple, but meaningful wedding on a $25,000 budget. YIKES!

I am not an expert pillow maker and the truth is that I will be
learning to sew with each pillow design that goes up every week, but I
promise you this: I will put my heart into making every one of the 1000
pillows and when you make a $25 donation for one, you will know that
you helped two people make their wedding dream come true.

Please join me weekly as our love story unfolds and how a wedding
dream will come true, one pillow at a time with the help of people like
