Remember this "Cheese Server"??



This is a big seller on my Etsy Shop.  It's very reasonably priced compared to similar trays I've seen on Etsy, which may be the reason I've sold so many of them.  But, with shipping costs as high as they are, I try to keep my price low enough that if someone purchases this, they can still afford to have it shipped.

This past week I had a request for 7 of them.  No problem, I had 2 already made and would just need to purchase lumber and let it dry out for a week or so, then I could make the other 5 and ship out the order.  Except, that was a problem - my buyer needed them for a shower being held just 5 days from when she made the inquiry.  And, she lived in the south!  So, no go.  But, she loved them.  Well, what do you do in that case???  Me?  I told her how to make them herself!  Detailed instructions, colors of stains, where to find the best price on handles.  Everything!  She was so excited.  I did ask her to send me pictures of hers when she was finished - and maybe she will.  The shower was yesterday.

I was happy knowing she could get what she really wanted.  And, I hope everyone enjoyed their gift!


Easter season is upon us!

I've made a lot of crosses in the past couple of years.  I've given most of them away as gifts to family and friends.  But, I've sold a few and am happy to sell more!  Like tables, these crosses are a joy to make.

Well, for all that I've made, I do not have one!  And, with Easter fast approaching I thought this was the perfect time to make one for myself.  I post things on a Facebook page, too, and one of Camper daughter's friends saw it and wanted one for herself.  Mine is on my wall and hers will be mailed on Monday.  We'll both be ready for Easter!  (although, mine will hang on my wall all year long - I love it and the reminder of God's love for me and all of us).

Happy Easter Everyone!
