(that's all of them lit up and pretty!)
Since January, I've had the privilege of making quite a few custom-orders for new Etsy customers, which has been fun and challenging at the same time. Some of them want me to take something I've already made and tweak it slightly (different colors, design, etc.) and some want me to match an item they currently have or replicate one that was accidentally broken. The latter makes me a bit more nervous - since I didn't make the originals and as hard as I try to match them, I'm a different artist and do things differently so they will never be exactly what the customer had before. I just want to make sure the customer enjoys what they've paid for! I'm also a perfectionist, which doesn't help. But so far, no complaints - let's hope it stays that way!
I haven't had as much time as I'd like to work on all of these orders due to crazy work hours, but luckily everyone has been very understanding and isn't expecting their items right away. I just can't wait until May rolls around so I'll have an unlimited amount of time (until mid-July anyway) to not only get these ones squared away but to play and create my own designs again!
Until next time - let the creativity flow!
