Bring Peace, Love and Joy to Your Dreams
During the summer of 2011, my oldest daughter, Heather, attended a Girl Scout “lock-in” at the then-known American West arena (later renamed the U.S. Airways Center, and now called the Talking Stick Resort Arena) in downtown Phoenix. After watching a WNBA Phoenix Mercury game, the girls were literally “locked in” the arena for the night. They had numerous activities for the girls, and I think they might have slept for about 10 minutes!
Heather needed a sleeping bag for this event, but didn’t own one. What could be more natural for a quilt designer than to decide to make one! It obviously didn’t happen overnight, and not even in time for the event, but this is what inspired the creation of the Peace, Love and Joy Design Collection, released in 2012.
Featuring bold lettering and jumbo flowers, the Peace, Love and Joy Collection will delight the girls in your life. The sleeping bag is ideal to take to events like “lock-ins”, or to grandma’s house, a friend’s house, or any other numerous venues. The matching twin-sized quilt is perfect at home on a bed or for snuggling on the sofa.

(SIDENOTE: After people fell in love with the designs for the words “peace, love and joy,” they asked me when I was going to offer the full alphabet. Well, I thought that was a good idea because then people could really express themselves as they wished. Check out the Express Yourself Collection for the rest of this story…)
Why own a plain-colored sleeping bag with a design so boring it’ll put you to sleep before you’re even able to crawl inside? Peace out and sleep blissfully in this Peace, Love and Joy Design Collection sleeping bag!
