After furiously preparing for the HandMade Market (which was a fantastic show, by the way), I spent last week defrosting my toes and catching up on some fun custom requests, or, as I like to call them, super special orders. Although custom often means quite a bit more work for me, I really love doing it. I love the break from routine. I love the slow relaxation of hand embroidery (and being able to watch TV while I do it). But most of all, I love the warm and fuzzy feelings that come from knowing I am creating such unique, personal gifts from the heart. This week, I inscribed secret love notes, played with monsters driving monster trucks, and scored big time with a hockey lover. It was great.
Inspired to create a personalized gift for someone on your Christmas list? Please remember that the ordering deadlines for custom items are getting real tight! Today is the last day for international customers. Americans and Canadians have until the end of next week. So please contact me sooner rather than later!
