My friend Bonnie needed a very special card for her father for Christmas. Evidently he really likes the western artist Bill Jaxon and for Christmas they were getting him a signed print but wanted him to think all they could get him was a post card with a personal note from the artist. Bonnie's mom asked Bonnie if she could do something special to present the postcard to Bonnie's dad and Bonnied told me "I told her...hmmm, I probably can't but I know someone who can!". And that is how I got commissioned to do the card.
I generally decline special orders, or any orders for that matter *okie doesn't like to think of papercrafting as orders because then it is a job and no fun* because I am always afraid it won't be like the person wants and they will complain or not like it and all my hard work will be for not. I really need to remember that the majority of my friends and family are NOT papercrafters so anything I do is awesome to them...it sure would help alleviate stress!
When I gave Bonnie the card she was quite pleased and as a thank you she had made me one of her famous bundt cakes that I love so much. Of course I can't show you a photo of that because Chuck and I ate the cake! LOL
Okie, this is just beautiful.ReplyDelete
I am sure they loved it!
I am like you when it comes to taking orders for something.
To me if they see it and love it, then that makes you feel good.
But if someone want to order this or that and wants it a certain way then I am always wondering if they are going to like it or if this is what they had in mind.
I think you did a fabulous job.ReplyDelete
This is a card your friend's father will cherish.
