Well golly you guys. The past week has been a really busy one for me.
Right now I am working on a custom order for a previous customer - the Wild Roses I mentioned in my last post. I had a few ideas for how to make them, and two of them turned out very well.
After speaking with my customer, we have decided to proceed with the top design. So this week I will be completing that order with three Wild Roses and the accompanying leaves. I'm quite excited!
But I better get my tail moving. Because I have another custom order to start on by next Wednesday. I will be making a mini rose vine similar to this one, only longer and with smaller roses:
But that's not all! No, not at all. I also have another custom order for a Rose Hair Comb, and five of my Large Rose Stems! I really wasn't expecting this last one, and it was quite a nice surprise!
After that the Rose Vine customer is likely to order more vines if she likes the first one. So. I'm booked until mid October unless someone cancels. I have a wait list! How cool is that? I might have to temporarily close my shops, though, as I'm not sure my brain can process too many more orders. Strangely enough, all my custom orders are for some kind of Roses. So I'll be making Roses for quite a few months still. Lots and lots of Roses.
This also means that I will have to wait a little while before I can make the Iris and Gerbera Daisy patterns. :S Sorry! What I might do is save the weekends for working on patterns and weekdays for Custom Orders.
