So many custom orders, so little time

Believe it or not, I spent almost half of the past couple of months ill. I had a flu, an ongoing sinus infection and now another head cold. I missed almost 3 workweeks at the office! This is driving me nuts. I guess my bad eating habits are catching up with me, not to mention biting my back. I am taking care of that.

In any case, all these sicknesses cost me in terms of promoting my shop and creating new products. I also had several custom orders that dragged and dragged and were completed in great delays (thank God for my sweet understanding customers, who agreed to wait for their orders to be completed).

Finally, this week I managed to catch up on my custom orders. All apart for one, who is waiting for me to shop for cloths, which will have to wait till next week.

First is this sexy little hand puppet. She is made after a very rich successful gorgeous blond lady. Therefore, I had to create a chic designer outfit for her with elegant accessories. I made her a backless collar dress in coral toned lace. The neck is decorated with clear rhinestones. The gladiator sandals are also decorated with rhinestones and compliment the satin back straps of the dress.

Next, we have a lady who ordered a look alike hand puppet of her brother. He is a very handsome young man, and I did my best to make him a worthy mini me.


I also had a very nice man, who ordered a look alike Flutterbutt of himself as a birthday gift for his girlfriend. The drawn whiskers are a  memento of a romantic event they shared, which I find very sweet. I packed him is a transparent bag, so he can see the complete work before giving it to his beloved (obviously, he received photos while I was working, and approved them). I think the gift wrapped boyfriend is very cute.

Now, I am very eager to 1) be healthy 2) create a Flutterbutt of my own liking. Custom orders are wonderful, but I didn't update my shop in so long, I feel it's time to refresh. After all, it is apparent spring is approaching.
