Special orders don't upset us on Etsy

Heart twig wreath

A great feature about shopping on Etsy is being able to communicate directly with the shop owner -- the creator, the artist.  Many shop owners on Etsy, welcome requests for special orders.  If you are unfamiliar with Etsy, it is an online marketplace where you can buy unique handmade and vintage items directly from independent sellers from all around the world.  Check it out here.  As you can see their are all sorts of categories with oodles of choices.  If you like handmade or one of a kind products you will love checking out these unique listings.

Recently I received a request for one of my photo frames but the customer wanted something a bit different.  She contacted me and told me what she liked about my photo frames but then told me what she wanted.
Here was her request - she referred to this listing:

Photo frame embellished with seashells & sea glass

"Do you do custom orders? Kind of looking for something a bit more simple, I think.... preferably a 3x5 photo size (but 4x5 would be okay too. It is for a horizontal photo... and I was just thinking some pieces of pale aqua sea glass, maybe on the bottom corner... and if that is too plain, possibly a couple of tiny shells sprinkled in. Maybe a few pieces in the top (opposite) corner.... but only a few."

This is what I put together:
 So, if you see something that interests you in my Etsy shop, contact me and I'll see if I can do something special for you.  If I put something together and it's not right, there is no obligation.  If you decide the finished product is not right -- I'll list it in my shop for sale.  In my shop I offer front door wreaths, silk and dried flower wall hangings and seashell decor.

What's new at Angels n Everlastings

I just love these rustic twig heart wreath frames.  I decorated this one with seashells, sea glass, pretty pink dried roses and fragrant lavender and eucalyptus. 

Twig Heart Wreath

I just added two new photo frame listings in my Etsy shop.  The first is embellished with bits of light purple seashells along with creamy white shells and sea glass.

Beach lover photo frame
 This would make the perfect gift for the beach lover.  It can stand or hang either vertically or horizontally.  The size of this photo frame is 5" by 7".  Contact me if you'd like a certain color or a different size. 

 Here is a photo of me at the beach collecting the bits of light purple seashells for the photo frame above.

Seashell sea glass photo frame

Here's the second -- A simply decorated photo frame with aqua blue sea glass and a few white seashells.  This is also a 5" by 7" photo frame. 


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and checking out my new listings in my Etsy shop.  Kindly leave some feedback.  Let me know what you think of my listings.  If you have any ideas for my shop please let me know.
