Meet Nichol, Flannery and Benjamin



I am so excited! I just received my 2 very own Pillow Monsters!

Meet Flannery, Benjamin and their creator, Nichol Brinkman. Nichol creates a pillow monster a day which absolutely inspires and amazes me. Each doll is beautifully designed and hand-crafted by Nichol. Her creativity goes beyond her design and sewing as she even writes a story about each one really bringing her characters to life. I cannot wait to add to my Pillow Monster family.

You can see what Pillow Monsters Nichol is creating every day on her blog and in her Etsy Shop!



Flannery sits next to me in my office inspiring me with her smile.




Benjamin lives in the Boulder Foothills with my sister telling stories to her teddy bear collection and her Corgi, Moe all day while she is away at work. He is a charming fellow and has alot to say!






Nichol even decorated the outside of the box which of course I had to cut out and keep!



Emmitt loves our two pillow monsters and wants to give them a big kiss!

those are SO cute! I love the fabric choices! Also, I love the naughty naughty pets below too..I think they portray the little souls of the animals that they are.

Very Cute stuff! Nichol's blog is great too.
Don't you just love Etsy? Sometimes I think I could to take an entire year off from my work and do nothing but buy other people's artwork and maybe take classes. Of course the more time I have to spend money the less money there is to spend, funny how that works out.

Hi Melissa and Emmitt,
I just wanted to say that I am sorry I didn't get to hook up with you while in Colorado. It was just TOO MUCH. I do think we will have the chance...

Love the pillow monsters.
