I just got back back to Orlando after a vacation to see family in Minnesota. I grew up in Minnesota then moved to Florida 20 years ago. The whole time I was home it was cloudy, cold (compared to Orlando) and rainy. Lets just say it is not the Sunshine State, but the people are bright and sunny!
I went to my niece Stephanie's high school graduation party. Besides the much loved gift of $$$$ I made her a memory pillow. Now, with teenagers you never know what they will like, but it was a huge hit with my niece and her friends. Since she lives out of state I had no idea what her favorite things were! So, I went to Facebook and there it was.....Her favorite show, food, restaurants, movie star, sport, etc.
Bingo! Anything we want to know about someone we can find!
I was thinking of other occasions you could give a Graffiti Memory Pillow. This could be filled with the names of friends, family members, classmates, pets, sports teammates?
Going off to college
A long hospitalization
Kindergarden, grade school, middle school graduation
I embroidered this onto the pillow, but not everyone has an embroidery sewing machine. You could easily type it all out and copy it onto fabric.
Are you interested in a tutorial on how to copy onto fabric next week?
