Every now and then a friend will call or message us with an urgent request. They have a great idea for a gift for someone, and they want to know if we can make it. Or they've seen something we make and want that item or something like it. Usually there is a deadline involved.
Can I say it now? I thrive under pressure! There, I've thrown down the gauntlet and tempted the dare fairies. And at Christmas no less. Bring it on!
Last Wednesday, a friend from church had a last-minute idea for something she wanted for her daughter's wedding. The couple's last names start with "Ham" and "Egg" and they have adopted the nickname "Ham & Eggs." Take that all you Hollywood couples with the silly combo names like Brangelina!
Anyway, the idea was for a sign that would have their nickname and the wedding date. (Did I mention the wedding was on Friday?) We discussed ideas for a few minutes, and decided on a framed chalkboard with vinyl lettering. I was pretty sure we had the perfect chalkboard at our shop, which we did, so I set to work.
Below are images of he finished piece, and the happy couple in a pretty wedding pose with the sign. I just love how it turned out, and that everyone liked it. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to see the vision of a customer and turn it into reality.
Congratulations, "Ham & Eggs" and to the Mother-of-the-Bride! Thank you for thinking of us when looking for your special project.
