Customer Satisfaction

SHE came to pick up her ornaments and she liked them...well, all except the horse. Now, we both know the horse needed work. She said, " could you make his neck a bit longer"? And I did...and guess what...he actually looked like a horse! And SHE was a happy customer! :)

This holiday season, I have been making and selling personalized pet ornaments and initial ornaments. And there is a very good reason why I stick with those two items...because I can make them. When one of my customers asked me for four ornaments, one with a chili pepper, one with a bunny, one with an angel, and one with a horse, I said O.K.! Did I really say O.K.? What in the world was I thinking? Always wanting to please, I began about the task of envisioning what she had asked for and begging God to help me! (seriously)
Now you must know that I truly cannot draw a stick figure...but here is what I ended up with...

...So, if you think they are alright, well then to God be the glory! If you think they're not so great, well, then you didn't really understand what God had to work with! :)

Tray Chic

Wanting to preserve those beautiful fall leaves, I decided to make a tray. I had seen this idea in a magazine years ago and had always wanted to give it a whirl. First you take a picture frame...remove back, place leaves on glass...add a second piece of glass as a backer...screw hardware in place for handles...AND you have a beautiful, useful tray!
