My Pillow is in PEOPLE Magazine!!!!

Uh-huh!!! Sorry... I'm entitled to Bragging Rights! Yeah...that's right! My Big Grey Bow Pillow was featured in People Magazine...and hit shelves today! It was recommended by Lauren Conrad!
Sorry it isn't the greatest picture...but hey it's kinda the focal point of the page! I still can't believe something I designed made it in such a huge publication!
See it for yourself in the June 6, 2011 Issue, or the "Kim's Engaged!" Issue!

~So there is a story behind this pillow....
Two weeks ago an editor from people magazine contacted us and asked if we would overnight one of these pillows to her, as a celebrity she just interviewed recommended my pillow...no problem, right! So first thing the next morning we expressed it and it was guaranteed to get to NY by noon the next day, Friday....and it didn't!!!! We were so mad! The next day was Saturday and so the Post Office tried to deliver it and no one was there to receive it. The editor was great about the whole thing...but the darn Post Office was in no rush to get it there despite our calls....it was the last thing they delivered on Monday....we were so ticked...but at least it made it, late of course. And sure enough there it is in people on page 90! And yes....you better believe we got our money back!
We are now anticipating our feature in Pregnancy and Newborn in July's Issue!

WHAAAT?!? I can't believe I know a real CELEBRITY (or at least someone who had something she made recommended by a celebrity)! That is the most awesome thing I have heard all day (and I heard all sorts of awesomeness from the kids about the last day of school, so that, my friend, is saying something)!
