What's the Craziest Thing.....

...you've ever made to order????

In the beginning of our business....a family friend worked in a busy medical office. The doctor's wife enjoyed doing luncheons as a "thank you" to the city's physicians and their staff. This created goodwill......and I'm sure garnered them additional referrals...and it was great fun!! During those luncheons (she hand made a grand buffet BTW!!) she would have me set up with our wares. Folks came and shopped and ate and we all giggled and laughed.....we did give- aways....really a wonderful day of fun and fellowship!!

Mrs. Holder was a great gal!! She was quite a hoot and very daring in her decorating!! Being a successful doctor's wife.....people anticipated her decorating to be high end.....and it was...however....she enjoyed a chuckle as well!! She once ordered a dinosaur......for the entrance of her driveway.....and she wanted it LARGE!!! Richard (she named the t-rex) was born.....from 2 sheets of plywood!! Having teenagers......Mrs. Holder wanted to be able to welcome her guests for every season.....so we made Richard's arms movable...and made him "things" for each season!! He had bunny ears.....a big red heart for Valentine's Day that read, "Be Mine!!"......a shamrock that read, "Kiss me...I'm Irish!!".....Richard wore a cap and gown for son Holder's graduation party.....and I can't put into writing why the t-rex got his name Richard..... you may be able to guess..... cause Richard wore a speedo one summer!! tee hee hee hee hee!! Oh my gosh....what fun!!

So there you have it.....I've made 3 different HUGE buses.....2 palm trees.....the entryway to a college and a massive bolder (for church plays).....I've made wooden bears....and stuffed everythings....but Richard was the craziest thing yet!! What's yours????

Have a great day.....and remember to take a lil' time to enjoy your day with a giggle or two!! Life's too short to be too serious!! Go on....shock your neighbors!! :O)
