wholesale necklace order, I jumped at the opportunity. I ordered the paint, purchased the bags, and painted like a fiend after Christmas.
It was with fingers crossed that I shipped the finished favors to Indiana this past Monday. I've said it before and I'll say it again: custom orders are nerve-wracking. You just never know if your final product is going to meet your customer's expectations. I was particularly worried that the bags weren't "identical" enough to each other. This is always a concern in the handmade world, especially for me, as I draw all of my tote designs freehand.
But thankfully all of my fretting was for naught. I was happy (and relieved!) to open this email yesterday:
"I received the box today! The totes are ADORABLE, thank you, thank you, thank you."
Reading that made my day. What's more, I have two more custom jobs on the horizon. Both are for felt necklaces, which warms the cockles of my costume-crazy heart.
