Ask again later...

Who doesn't remember the Magic 8 Ball?  I think they might even be making them still.  But "ask again later" has been my response lately to requests of custom work.

I am always both flattered and appreciative when one of you lovely people asks me to create a custom piece for your little one.  This is my latest custom piece:

It was created for my friend's daughter; she is having a Toy Story 3 themed birthday party.  However, I'm a little sad to say that I am working on my last custom piece right now.  The wonderful buzz that has surrounded á La Modish has generated lots of requests for one-of-a-kind items.  The problem is that with the clothing launch, I don't have time to do them :( 

So I say, "ask again later!"  I'm not ready to completely shut out the idea of custom work because I enjoy it so much.  But more importantly, I want to be able to invest all the creative energy into those pieces to make them special for you. 

Today's happiness:  Freebies!  Be sure to check back in the next day or two because I'll be posting a picture of the pillowcase dress that I'm about to give away.  Only six more followers to go, and I'm drawing one of your names out of a sewing basket.
