Turning Negatives into Positives

 First of my newly finished pouch thingys all set and ready to go to a new home
The second pouch thingy hangin' out and ready to be someone's new best friend.

So, I woke up today to some criticism of my work.  Not in a good way either.  This someone was not pleased with the quality of my work.  It kind of sucked to read what was said, but what exactly can you do.  Not everyone is going to happy with what you do 100% of the time.  Part of me wanted to write this person back with all sorts of explanations of my work and pleas for understanding my process, and, another part wanted me to meet her face to face and say something like " It's handmade lady!  If you don't like how I do my work, make it yourself!"   BUT, and it's a big but, I wrote back to apologize and offer a refund,  again, not everyone is going to like what you do and get the whole handmade thing.  It's just the way it is.  I do the best with what I have.  I make things that will last for a long, long while, in my design and style.  I think most people that create things do.  I thought what I had made turned out pretty awesome, but someone else did not.  I guess I just have to shrug it out and move on to the next adventure. 

In other news,  I am on to making pouch wallets this week.  Just like the one I made for myself.  I really like it and I am hoping it will make a little more sense with the new design I came up with.  We shall see though.  The first one is turning out pretty nice in all of it's dusty plum-ness, turquoise-ness, and such.  I can't wait to share it!

 *  I am crossing my fingers for being finished by the end of the week:)*
