An Early Merry Christmas!

Although I love custom orders on Etsy, my love often turns to stress when I have a short deadline to get it to the buyer. On the other hand, I love custom orders on Etsy when I have an absurd amount of time to get the item (s) to the buyer.

A lovely, wonderful repeat buyer recently asked me to make 5 Custom Mini Comp Notebooks. I was thrilled with the order but when she wrote me that there was absolutely no rush because she wanted them as gifts for Christmas 2014, I was just over the moon.  No mistake here folks, she ordered them 10 months in advance.

Now, I knew I had lots of time to make these babies but due to a lost crown, the tooth kind, not the princess/queen kind, and a day off from work, I was able to finish up this custom order in time for a very early Christmas celebration. 

#1. Artist's Choice!

#2. Shabby Prim. I used some of my retro inspired Kaisercraft.

#3. This gal loves wine so I 
made her a Mini Wine Tasting Notebook.

#4. Hope this gal purrs when she gets her gift.

And #5. This was made for a gal who loves jewelry.
I wonder if she ever saw Breakfast at Tiffany's?  
Just wanted to let you know that I am currently taking orders for Christmas 2014, 2015 and 2016.   


  1. These are all wonderful Ellen! My favorite is the same as yours. I really like the wine tasting album too; and love the Tiffany & Co. as well. I hope you will be putting all these on YouTube? I am dying to know what paper line you used on the 5 cent Genuine Beauty.

  2. Lisa, sorry for the delay. The paper line is Vintage Vogue from Pinkpaislee. It's really vintage so I think it might be hard to find it. If you do please let me know since I adore it! Big hugs
