Corgi Pillow Monsters!

Look at these amazing Pillow Monsters I commissioned the amazing Nichol Brinkman to create for Melanie!

Nichol is such an amazing artist and absolutely captured Melanie's Moe and his cousin, that has been named Martin.

They were waiting for us when we came home from camp and we were jumping up and down when we got the package!

Moe is Melanie's sweet, wonderful corgi.

Here is Moe's story told by Melanie. :)

Moe is from Mountain Home, Arkansas. The breeder specializes in Cardigan Welsh corgis. They come in all sorts of colors: black/white, red, brindle, blue merle. We drove to AR to pick up moe. he was the only black/white from his litter of blue merles . He was born on Thanksgiving 2004. the day before, our breeder also had a red corgi litter. She had over 10 puppies at once!
He just loved his red cousins and chased they each other all the time.

Can You find Moe in this Corgi Pile?

Baby Moe!

Snazzy Moe!

I love Nichol's work. It is so special and she is a wonderful person. Please check out her blog and Etsy store. It will brighten you day!

Moe is a sweetie pie! I love Corgis. My daughter has always wanted one!
I loved your page Melissa. Your pugs are so adorable and the dog tag was perfect. It was so much fun to be a part of this project.
