Traveling Pillow

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pillows

Cultivating Contentment and Gratitude One Pillow at a Time!

Last November, I found some great pillows inscribed with the words:

Give Thanks

I loved them! So whimsical, so orange (leftover from Thanksgiving decor)–such a good reminder – we have SO MUCH to be thankful for!

So, I sat down and listed 10 things off the top of my head for which I was thankful and sent the pillows and list off to my friend, Kathy Vick in Portland, Oregon. I said, “Kathy, let’s start the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pillows! You keep these pillows as long as you want, then make a list of your “thankful’s” and then send the pillows and your list (and mine) off to a friend–maybe a friend who is already thankful – or, who could be, if reminded.”

She loved it! She added a journal and off they went – not sure where…

To keep the Sisterhood moving, I found a dear young woman in Fond-du-Lac, Wisconsin who makes sachet pillows – beautifully – and she agreed to customize our “Give Thanks” pillows in a smaller fashion – easier to mail, after all. And, she scents them – when we are thankful, we “smell better” – don’t you think?sisterhood









You, too, can purchase a Sisterhood Set: – One sachet pillow – scented or unscented and one coordinating journal including wrap and gift-ready!

Sachet is crafted from soft, creamy muslin and scented lightly with essential oils to freshen your closet, drawers, car, anywhere! Sachet has a black grosgrain ribbon hanger with a satin bow embellishing the front. Generously filled with poly/cotton fiberfill, sachet measures approximately 4.5 x 5.5 inches. Journals come wrapped with pillow, and, directions for “sending gratefulness” from sister- to- sister are included.

$20.00 per sachet pillow/journal set (plus $4.00 shipping/handling) allow two weeks for order.

    Love my sisterhood pillow Sue. What a great-ful idea and still savoring the wisdom you passed on today at our Lovely conference. Thank you for inspiring and encouraging us to grow-up!
