I'm sure its not just me, but I get really nervous when I sell something online and even more so when I do a custom order. I think its just because I really want them to like it, and as as they haven't seen it in the flesh it can be a little scary.

On Monday I dropped off the lampshade I had made for someone. I was very please and relieved to hear that she loved it and its a great feeling. I had also made a couple of hotwater bottle covers for someone at work, again it was great to hear that she really liked them too.

I am sure with time I'll get less worried about these situations, although to be honest its probably not a bad thing as it means I care about what I produce and also try to do the best I can.

I've got a bit of a cold this week and not feeling too great. I've got a couple of big projects happening at work, so its not a good week to have time off. Although I do feel a bit better today after the best sleep I have had in ages!!


  1. You are certainly not alone. I do a lot of custom orders and am always worried untill I get an email saying that they like the bag.
    Which can be a lot of worrying as so many of my bags have to travel all the way from the U.K. to the U.S.A!!!

  2. Hello. I can totally relate to these feelings. It is much more nerve wracking selling online because people are taking your word for it that it is what you say it is rather than picking it up in the flesh and deciding they want it. It's great when people leave good feedback. Sets you r mind at rest. Although I'm sure the people that don't leave it just forgot, I still worry that maybe they were disappointed. Daft really. But as you say it keeps us working hard to produce great, good quality items : )

  3. I do like your work. It is so different and unpredictable - quirky! I live just outside Nottingham. Where is the exhibition for Sherwood Art Week? Would like to go.
