Custom Orders

I love doing custom orders! They are often challenging, which is why I like them.

A few weeks ago, a lady saw one of my egg cups, and asked if I could make another so she could buy two. I ended up making the second one out of contrasting wood, which made a great his/her set.

Another custom order I’ve done was for deer antler pens. A man wanted pens made out of deer antler from a hunting trip he’d been on. We negotiated prices, and he ended up buying three!

One of the most interesting custom orders that I’ve had was to make something I’d never heard of before: sugar cone molds! I think it’s pretty sweet that some people still make sugar cones by hand. The lady who contacted me sent me a picture and dimensions, and I took a whack at it. This is how it turned out:

I actually ended up making two cone molds, and she bought them both!

It was really fun to make something totally new. Don’t be afraid to ask for custom orders. I just might be able to make what you want!

AW Magazine

My mom is a writer and editor for Area Women Magazine in town. The magazine is mainly stories about women around here.

Mom had a meeting with the owner of the magazine one day about a month ago. Like any good mom, she likes bragging about her children. She showed Mike (the owner) one of my pens. He was impressed and impulsively decided to do a story on me! When I heard, my first reaction was, “But I’m not a woman!” and my second reaction was “free advertising … niiiice.” Needless to say, my second reaction won out. Later that month, my mom interviewed me and wrote up the story! The magazine came out today:

It’s cool to have an actual story about me in a magazine. I still find it humorous that I’m in this particular magazine, though!
