DIY Decorative Pillows

I was asked to make some decorative pillows so I decided to sew on my Friday off.  She knew I can sew because I've gifted her a DIY pilllow in the past.  She provided the materials (i.e. fabric, thread, pillow forms, and polystuffing) so basically I am only charging her for the labor.  Problem is...I don't know how much to charge her! LOL! Help! Any ideas???


13" High Letter/Alphabet Pillows

14" x 14" Decorative Throw Pillows

16" x 16" Decorative Pillows

Got some Feng Shui Charms for New Year for good luck, prosperity, and protection

Started reading this book. Book club anyone? LOL!

Got my 2nd Glam Bag! I've been loving their samples so far!

Got my January 2012 Birchbox

Watched WICKED again...this time @ Pantages Theater.
I'm glad I saw it again because I got to see my favorite GALINDA/GLINDA (Katie Rose Clarke) play the part! ELPHABA (Mamie Parris) is great too!

Also got this Wicked Shirt.  I hesitated at first because of the price but got it anyway.

Check out my OOTD wearing this shirt...
