Sale - SherylC
« on: November 22, 2017, 11:29:46 am »
 I fulfilled my first paid order for a customer today who placed an order for some Free Standing Lace (Machine Embroidered) 8 Xmas Tree ornaments and 8 Coasters in her colours of choice. the Sap Green, Gold and Red, very Christmassy.  The customer was over the moon with them and I too was over the moon with her reaction........and being paid! lol

Here's examples:-

Both of them look great but I love the coasters I can see why she would be over the moon with them.

Thanks Teejay. I've another order to make the FSL Angel and 3D Star!  :legs:  I have an appointment on Saturday to discuss the possibility of selling my FSL projects in a craft store. So exciting. If it comes to something great, if not that's fine too.

Thanks Linda. Yes, I agree, it's nice to be paid for your work but even better is when someone likes your work enough to want to buy it. :)

Very nice, Sheryl!!   I love the tree ornaments!!   I also like the coasters but would go for a different color.  I'm a "coaster" user daily!!   And you're right, it's definitely nice to have someone pay for your work.   I used to have a doll shop years ago where I made one-of-a-kind dolls that sold for an average of $75  and this was back in the early 70's.  That was a lot of money for a doll.  They came with birth certificates too.  I always said the guy who came out with the cabbage patch doll stole my idea with the birth certificate.  His came out long after mine!  It was always so rewarding for not only the money, but to think people liked the work so much that they would pay for it.  Rather miss those days!!

Good luck with getting your stuff into a store.. that would be the icing on the cake!!

Thanks MaryLou. I remember you saying about your dolls, they must have been very popular. Pity when ideas get snatched.

An author of a children's story book has found that a famous store, John Lewis, has put out their Xmas advert which looks very similar to the author's book including the monster he created for the story...Monster under my Bed. Not sure what will happen about that but all will be revealed in time I guess.
