Custom Order Catch Up (and a DISCOUNT code) …

I *heart* custom orders.
Especially when that custom order challenges me to try something new.

Ehem, okay … honestly, custom orders that challenge me to do something new scare me. And I want to say, thank you, but uhm, no thank you. My brain is not ready to really think today.

But then I give myself a little pep talk and decide that trying new things is good, right? A challange helps me grow, right? And then I think … being a grown up is hard. I want to be 6 again ;).

So, sweet Jessica (seriously, my bestie is a Jessica … and why, oh why are they blessed with beautifully curly hair?!? I want my name to be Jessica and I want the curls that come with the name) of Allora Handmade asked me to make her a camera bag.

Say what? Uhm, yes … a camera bag. Like one lined with foam.

And I did it!! Hurray … and while not 100% perfect, it did turn out darn close. I learned a lot, my brain got its workout and Jessica assures me it is working great for her (although I reckon she’s too sweet to tell me otherwise). 

I took my ‘Everyday Classic’ tote and created it in a gray corduroy and then modified it to have foam in the sides, bottom, and two padded interior sections.

Another custom order came from a local customer (who also keeps me stocked with Scentsy) who requested a fabric ‘count down’ chain for the weeks when her husband is away for work. She was tired of the kids making paper chains each time and was looking for something a bit cuter and a more ‘green’ option ;). 

Isn’t that a sweet idea? Love it.

Those are a few of the things I’ve been working on …

I also just finished a BIG batch of “Oh Snap! Mini Wallets” … they’re in the shop and just waiting to go home with you. 

Oh and these ‘Stamped with Love’ coffee coats, they’re only available for a few more weeks. Want one for Valentine’s day? You still have time (order by Wednesday, February 9th). Order it up and I’ll send it out super quick … promise.

Let’s sweeten the deal for this weekend … use code LoveKB14 for 14% off your purchase.

Happy Creating!
