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:
|Spring front door wreath|
Here are a few listings I found on Etsy offering "special orders":
|Handmade modern crochet accessories by Loopdeedoo|
|Special order handebar bag by Savvysacs|
