DIY Motivational Pom-Pom Pillow!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all having an awesome Tuesday! This post was originally going to be another ‘Motivational Monday’ post (hence the delay) but I decided not to, because I didn’t want to do two Motivational Mondays in a row but I still did want to share this DIY with you all! 😊

Lately I’ve been going through a bit of a cute throw pillow making obsession. For some reason it’s very very satisfyingly to just sit for and make something completely original and then stuff it and just watch it come to life! It’s just really fun! 😍

I even think it’s becoming a bit of problem ha ha..I’ve already made about three pillows and I’m not even close to overcoming it? πŸ˜‚

So I decided to make the most of it and share one of my favorite DIY pillows with you all! I hope you like it!

  • White Cloth (or cloth in any other colour of your choice)
  • Paint (in any colour of your choice. I chose black paint) and Paint brushes
  • Markers or Paint Pens (if you don’t want to paint)
  • A Pom-Pom trim. (If you don’t have this, then you could use any other lace or ribbon that you have at home)
  • Stuffing
  • A pencil
  • And a Scissor

  • The first thing you will need to do is cut your cloth to the size that you want your throw pillow to be and map out your design on the cloth. Make sure to fold it in half so that the cloth is perfectly even on both sides.

<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br

  • For the next step, you will have to grab your paint or your markers and do a little outline of the word that you have chosen and fill it in with paint. or you could even leave it as it is.

<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br<br
ided to try and replicate a picture of the word instead. (If that makes any sense at all haha..)

Here's what I used to help me! (I just typed out the word in my fave calligraphy style font and looked at it for inspiration!) ❀️

  • After that,you have to either glue or stitch your trim along three edges of the pillow. This is to close up the edges and to attach the trim. For me this was the hardest step as I’m not very good at sewing but it was also quite relaxing and even a bit satisfying? πŸ˜‚

Important Things to Remember.Don’t forget to leave one edge open so you can add in the stuffing.

  • If you are using glue then make sure to turn the pillow inside out before glueing the sides.

  • Now it’s time for the really fun part. STUFFING!! Stuff the pillow with as much stuffing as you possibly can! The more the stuffing the more cuddly and cosy it’s going to be! 😍❀️ just have fun with it!

And that’s it!

Here’s how my pillow turned out!

It’s not perfect but I’m still really pleased with it! 😊❀️

What do you think of my pillow? Are you going to try this DIY out? I do hope so! Oh and if you do, what will you write on your pillow? I’d love to know!! πŸŽ‰Alright now it’s..Time for the Comment of the Week! πŸŽ‰

Motivational Monday : Seven Inspirational Quotes to Brighten Up Your Week!

Hi everyone!

I hope that you are all having a lovely Monday! I know that Mondays can sometimes be the most unappealing days of the week. Especially after an amazing weekend that didn’t deserve to end so quickly. How dare Monday just take that pleasure away? Right?πŸ˜‚

Anyway, the reason I started up Motivational Mondays is to (hopefully) help with those Monday Mornin’ Blues and help to brighten up your week! ❀️ The last time I did this was almost a year ago, which is absolutely crazy to think about. I shared some tips on how to make Mondays less stressful and more fun.

This week, I decided to share some of my favorite quotes to help you (and me!) make this week AMAZING! Let’s do this!

  • Quote #1

  • Quote #2

  • Quote #3

  • Quote #4

  • Quote #5

  • Quote #6

  • Quote #7

I found all of these AMAZING quotes on Pinterest so the quotes do not belong to me, but the designs do! I designed each of these quotes for all of you so that you can use it as a wallpaper on your phone or print it out and tape it up on your wall! (If you do share this, please don’t forget to give credit!)

Overall, I just hope that it helps you get inspired and (hopefully!) makes your Monday a bit brighter!

What do you think about Mondays? Do you like any of these quotes? Oh, and if so,which one was your favorite? I really want to know! πŸ˜‰

Sasha Chats : A MASSIVE Apology + Why I LOVE Blogging! πŸ’—

Hi everyone!

It’s been simply ages since I’ve last blogged and I can’t tell you all how terribly sorry I am! 😞😭 I’ve been trying to think of exactly what to say in this post for ages, but I still think that nothing I can say is going to do this post complete justice? (Wow that sounded so intense)

So I’m just going spill it all out. That’s the only way that I think I can explain it all.

The past few weeks had been a whirlwind and it carried me away with it. I had TONS of exams to start with and quite a few extra curricular activities (okay, and I got carried away with some fab new books πŸ˜‰) and in the midst of all of that, I suppose I just didn’t have the time or energy to create a good and interesting blog post. I did make a few DIYs for some fun blog posts though! (I can’t wait to share ’em with you!).

Another major reason was probably because I didn’t prioritize properly? Blogging has and will always be within my top list of priorities, but because I procrastinated so much, I just had cram all of my studying into the last couple weeks. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ (Thank goodness it’s all over now!)

I actually think that it’s been quite a good learning experience for me because absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? ❀️ And I’ve missed my blog and all of you so much, it’s actually crazy. I suppose you could call this break an ‘ Unintentional Hiatus Due To Sasha’s Procrastination’ πŸ˜‚

Anyway, I’m really really really sorry for not blogging (and apologizing!) sooner!! I genuinely do LOVE blogging and I simply cannot imagine life without my blog and all of you lovely people. ❀️

Blogging is and has always been something that I’ve loved and enjoyed doing. Ever since I started my blog, my mindset about things has changed immensely and I’ve been able to learn so many new things. I know it sounds a bit clichΓ© but it’s true! I’ve been able to experience and learn and enjoy so many things that I wouldn’t even have dreamed of doing. ❀️

And blogging for me has not been just a hobby, but a passion and it’s like one of those things where you join or start up and expect something good but the result of it is just blows your mind? (If that makes any sense at all haha..)

I just wanted to type up a quick little (but hopefully still meaningful) post to explain everything. I actually kind of think The Break (I’m going to call it that now) was also kind of needed? Now that I’m back, I’m just bursting (I really am) with more fun ideas and posts and so much more! AHHHHH I’m just SO excited to be blogging again! πŸŽ‰πŸ˜Šβ€οΈ

I also want to just thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for constantly supporting me and being there for me and for just being lovely people in general! You are all amazing! Thank you so much! ❀️😊

I’ve got a TON of fun posts coming up including :

  • Some SNEAK peeks into a book that I’m writing with the AMAZING Ilsa Nite (The most amazing writing partner ever!)
  • A post with my sister! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ (this one is going to be super exciting!)
  • Wacky Wednesday! (I did something that nobody thought I would do and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!)
  • A Three DAY Donut PARTY! πŸŽ‰πŸ’—πŸ˜ (DONUTs are AMAZING and they need to be appreciated more!)

And many many more fun posts and other things! I would say more but that would spoil the surprise. πŸ˜‰β€οΈ
