Welcome! If you are looking for a unique, not mass produced, beautiful and practical buckwheat pillow for yourself, or to give as a gift to an adult , senior, teen, or child, you have come to the right place!

CreativChristie is a woman owned shop, and it’s just me! I do everything from designing to posting my products on Etsy!
I actually enjoy sewing, and making my whole buckwheat seed and flaxseed therapeutic heating pads/cold packs.

My unique pillows can be microwaved or froze, depending whether you want heat therapy or cold therapy. Whole buckwheat seeds retain heat and cold well, and contain rutin, a natural anti-inflammatory agent. Flaxseeds are also anti-inflammatory, are soft and malleable, and retain temperature well (especially cold). Rice gives off moist heat. All herbs used are organic.

My buckwheat pillows are one-of-a-kind! They are joyously crafted in my sewing room, in Jamaica, NY! I choose my fabrics carefully, and double/triple stitch the removable cotton pillow cover. The inside muslin pillow is also well reinforced with stitching; I add decorative stitches, and other little details. I never make two pillows exactly the same.

My pillows are user friendly, nice to look at, and practical too! I love making them, and I love that they are natural pain relievers!

©STORY PILLOWS are partially lined with muslin. Each pillow's cover tells a unique story. The story comes to me, usually while I'm working with the fabric- choosing, cutting, and piecing it all together. It's as if the fabric speaks to me! The stories vary, as the patterns on the pillows do. Enjoy! I'd love to hear your story about the pillow.
©Bye Bye Boo Pillows, for children, are also partially lined and contain buckwheat and flaxseeds. They tell stories too.

All of the pillow covers are removable for easy washing. The inner pillows are not washable.
All are made in my smoke-free, pet friendly home.

****USPS has once again raised their priority mail shipping charges. Because buckwheat and flax seeds are heavy, most of my pillows are sent in a padded flat rate envelope which makes the shipping cost higher.****
I am sorry for these shipping increase. I continually look for ways to help my customers and keep costs down.
I do offer discounts on shipping with multiple purchases.
I refund any shipping overages after purchase. within reason.
Thank you!

A Natural Way to Ease Joint Pain!

My story:
I believe in using natural remedies to soothe and heal the body, and in taking care of the environment. (I often use repurposed cotton for the lined pillows.) The inspiration to make my pillows came when I was diagnosed with lupus. I needed something natural to relieve the awful joint pain I had. My friend gave me a plain, muslin, buckwheat pillow, which could be heated in the microwave. That pillow brought me a tremendous amount of relief, so I decided to help other people by creating my own buckwheat pillow product. First of all, the pillow had to be made so it could be heated or froze. I use buckwheat and flax seeds for that because they hold temperature well. Next, I wanted to offer organic herbs to my customers because of their medicinal and aromatic properties. Lastly, I wanted the cotton pillow cover to be removable for easy washing, be attractive, and up lifting. I am a storyteller, and tell a story in each of my pillows.

Creative Christie natural heating pads and cold packs are therapeutic for the body and soothing to the soul!

Because buckwheat seeds are heavy, shipping costs are higher. Shipping rates go up every year. I ship through USPS, priority mail. Pillows under 13 oz. are shipped first class.
I am continually looking for ways to help my customers and keep costs down.
I combine shipping of multiple purchases going to the same address.
I will also refund overages of shipping, within reason.
Purchases made over $100., going to the same address, ship free.
Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
I do accept and fill custom orders. They generally cost a few more dollars above the listed pillow price. Send me an email, and we can work it out.
You will choose the type of pillow, size, and colors you want. I will ask you lots of questions and send you photos of fabric to be sure that I make a pillow that you will be happy with.

Please allow up to two weeks for your custom made pillow. Thank you.
