Working for the redesign company is beyond awesome. I love every single last thing about it. However, I do have one little itty bitty complaint. I want to take everything home!!!!! All the beautiful new furniture, and pillows, and throws, and accessories, and POUFSSSS! I think I have the hardest time with the poufs. I want them all. I’d like to think that I’ve never really been a materialistic person….that is until the pouf came along. Just look at how Christina teases me…
See what I mean!!?! Totally teasing me with all that pouf fabulousness!
Sooooo I’ve been dreaming about a pouf. I went to West Elm for work the other day, Ahhhh anytime you say you went to West Elm for work, it’s a good day. Anywho they had all their rug samples for sale! I think they were $4.00 each and then I had my 20% off card, so around $3.00 each I think (math is not my thing, neither is cooking or vacuuming). I was going crazy with all the possibilities for these rug samples. My first thought was to buy a bunch and make one giant rug. Then I started talking to my friend Angela who works there (she’s so super cool and I especially love her name) and we came up with all sorts of ideas for these samples..wall art, car floor mats, under shoes when you walk in, under dog bowls, or a few sewn together for a doormat. Then it dawned on me, POUF!!!
I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on foam or filler or whatever you stuff a pouf with. Christina wasn’t on to me when I kept volunteering to haul the trash after our redesigns. I was slowly but surely stuffing my pouf with all the paper and packing goods left over from work. You can now call me Angela the environmentalist, oh and Angela the zipliner (I did that the other day)!!!
Yes it did take me 25 years to hand sew that together and then I couldn’t use my hands for a week because of all the blisters, BUTTTT I love it so much and it makes me so happy and the most important thing is I don’t have pouf envy anymore.
