Hello again, folks! It's been a very busy week(ish) at Lauren's Creations. I've finished my next order for these 2 pink Dahlias. Yay!
But I've also received quite a few more custom orders since last I updated this blog. I'm now booked all the way through June. I will leave my shop open until Saturday, when my 15% off offer expires, then after that I will be closing for a few months so I can get through this long list. My current project is for a mini Poppy arrangement. Originally we were going with the larger Poppy, but my customer decided she wanted them smaller. So I'm making 3 of the tiny ones on the left. Plus a couple buds, some of those funky poppy leaves, and the black and gold fern leaves that you can kind of see in the background in the second picture. I'm saving the larger one I made for a future project. :)
This one will be finished in just a couple days. Then I'm jumping right in to another mini rose vine. Then I get to make Lily of the Valley, after which I'm taking a break to do my Dahlia Pattern by the end of the month. Then I will be making an Astilbe Stem, a Purple Iris, 3 Purple Gerbera Daisies, a Wedding Bouquet!, a Hydrangea, then another Southern Magnolia and a Purple Ruffled Rose. Phew! Some of these projects seem so far away. But I'm excited for each and every one of them. Of course, because of the scheduling needs of a couple of them, I'm having to push my Hydrangea pattern from April into June. But, I'm making a Hydrangea that month for a custom order so it works out well. :) I haven't published a new pattern this year and it feels really strange. I had no idea that this many orders would come in back to back. My little fingers are going to be beading like crazy, that's for sure.
I will see you all next week with another update on my progress.
