Pillow Talk - July Updates

Pillow Talk - July Updates

Summer is upon us! Does that foretell a staycation or vacation in your future? Either way, we've been busy bees designing (with our very own printer!) plenty of fun creations for everyone and every purpose.

We are so pleased to sew and print in-house now! This setup allows us to create custom designs on-demand, which means no delays from external sources during a pandemic. Our pillows are made with even more local love at the same affordable price, and with an even higher quality fabric than before. The weave is tighter, meaning any hi-resolution photos you send in will be printed without grain! This has made an incredible difference for our latest Graduation pillow designs. ...

Pillow Talk - May

Pillow Talk - May

We trust your nest was cozy and full this past Mother's Day! While many were likely still under quarantine restrictions, we'd love to hear how you celebrated in unique, creative fashion. Hopefully you were spoiled, or at least treated yourself well!

There have been many exciting developments to our little business over the last few weeks, and even more to come....

Pillow Talk - April After All

Pillow Talk - April After All

For those of us who've transformed our homes into full-time office spaces over the last month, the days have begun to blur and time has taken us for a spin, it seems. 

How is it April already? One thing is for sure, it definitely doesn't feel like April.

While it has its perks, self-isolation has made it even easier for us to be consumed by our own problems and lose touch of what's happening in the lives outside our doors. And, with so much negativity on the news, most of us want to hide from all of it, anyway. While we have been asked to maintain distance, there are still many creative ways to be involved and maintain connections (more on that below)....

Pillow Talk - March Madness or Merriment?

Pillow Talk - March Madness or Merriment?

With spring on the horizon, it's easy to get excited as nature, and our bodies, begin to awaken from winter's hibernation. As baseball season starts up and the sun stays out longer, a lot of us find ourselves outdoors. Maybe you're an avid gardener, a home-improvement DIY-er, or maybe hiking, vintage shopping, or playing sports are your thing. First of all, if you're looking for a pillow that covers one or all of these categories, you're definitely subscribed to the right site, *wink*. But whatever and wherever you find joy, we hope you focus all of your efforts on it this month!...

Pillow Talk - February Flow

Pillow Talk - February Flow

People seem to either love or loathe this month--very few of us find ourselves on neutral ground regarding Valentine's Day. But what we often fail to realize is that as there are many different types of love (eight, according to the ancient Greeks), so are there more reasons to celebrate such a day! The rest of the month is kind of a wash anyway, as winter feels like it's still hanging on in most parts of the country, and not in the fun way. So, why not use the excuse to show a little love? ...

Pillow Talk - Jubilant January

Pillow Talk - Jubilant January

The month of January often brings mixed feelings for all of us. But while the post-holiday blues can make it difficult to jump back into reality, there's something about the beginning of a fresh new year that just feels right. 

Of course, now is also the time well-intended yet lofty promises are made to ourselves and others, which in just a few weeks will potentially result in disappointments....

Pillow Talk - Dear December...

Pillow Talk - Dear December...

We can't believe we're saying this already, but, what a YEAR! Oh, it was not without its tests and trials. Some months and moments pushed us to our limit. But those things helped us grow both personally and professionally--our little business that could actually now can, with God's grace. Uniik Pillows was able to expand tremendously in the local area this year, and it's been such a joy getting to know all of the fine artisans and local businesses throughout the valley....

Pillow Talk - No Stress November

Pillow Talk - No Stress November

You don't have to tell us. We know. You're already stressed about the last weekend of the month. October was a blur, now it's November and everyone looks to you to put the plans in motion but you don't feel ready. Hold up! Take a breath. Everyone already knows you're superwoman (or superman, if we have any fellas subscribed!). But, being a superhero means you're extra busy, and unfortunately not immune to woes of expenses and time constraints. ...

Pillow Talk - An Organic October

Pillow Talk - An Organic October

Those of you who live in a part of the world where there are actual, organic seasons should consider yourselves beyond blessed. Don't get us wrong, we do love our desert. But an 80-degree fall just doesn't quite feel the same! So, we resort to heatless fireplaces, pumpkin scented candles and décor that brings the ambiance of autumn...while we sit in our A/C homes....

UniikPillows - Pillow Talk - September Sentiments

Pillow Talk - September Sentiments

September has got to be the most neglected of months. Technically, summer lasts until the 23rd, but terrible things like school and "normal" jobs decide to rudely cut the sunny season short. So then we find ourselves in a bit of a limbo--unsure if we should be firing up the grill and munching watermelon or if we need to just give in and drain down that first pumpkin spice latte (affectionately known as a #PSL)....
