A Sally Field Oscar Moment
Today I am joining Seth Apter's 6th Annual Buried Treasure party! It is time to dig through old blog post and bring a favorite to the top. Here is mine, first posted June 18, 2009.
"You like me, you really like me!" Sally, I know just how you feel! I just now completed the custom order depicted in this post and sent the final photos to the customer. There is always that moment, for me at least, when just for a second I wonder if they will like what I designed and created. Here's a little background.
I was asked to create a floral arrangement as a baby gift. The customer provided a vase that she bought on Ebay & had sent to me. She gave me the color scheme of pinks with a little red & white and that she wanted substantial flowers.
I created a ruby red rose as a the focal point, since the baby's name is Ruby and the rose is her birth month flower (June). The other flowers include: daffodil, narcissus, morning glory, iris, lily, rose of sharon, anemone, orchid, and tulip.
Not only did my customer call it "AMAZING!" but she said it gave her chills. If you sell your art then perhaps you know this feeling, too...the high you get from knowing that someone really likes what you made!
Thank you, Seth, for organizing this and letting me relive a little "fame". If you get a chance, stop in at Seth's blog, The Altered Page, and see more favorite posts!
