The other day, we had a nice sized box lying around waiting to be taking out with the trash and I just got this idea to put a pillow in it and cover it with a flannel blanket. That’s exactly what I did and Lu’lu LOVES IT! She is laying on it ALL the time and it just feels good to know that I made that for her and she is ACTUALLY using it! 🙂 So next time, before you go out and give your money to a store – let your creative juices run and see what you can come up with.
