A Memory Gift from the Heart!

Once in a while a gift comes along that is so special it makes your heart sing! That is what happened with the beautiful Mothers Day Memory pillow I received yesterday from my sweet granddaughter and her dear mom! I simply could not believe my eyes at the charm and loveliness of this picture pillow.

When it is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, I have to add, "Yes, it is, and even more!" This beautiful handmade memory pillow not only adds the joy of light and love to any room in our home but also brings back sweet memories of a little girl, now grown, who danced her way into our hearts.

This beautiful pillow is just one of the custom made gifts designed and produced by Laura Kangas, who along with her husband Todd is co-owner of Desperate Checkbook.

Laura and Todd share their passion for "going green" and talk about what their new business offers: Here at Desperate Checkbook, we have a need and passion for creating and giving. We realize that everyone has a "Desperate Checkbook" from time to time. But, if we step back...we can see that there are situations that occur all around us that should make us grateful for what we have...then realize that others may not be as fortunate.

...At Desperate Checkbook, we create and sell quality handmade items that are affordable...we then donate a portion of every sale to organizations that help those in need."
