"Hey Dawn, I know it's short notice and I was going to wear that set you made me last year to go with my grey dress, but it really didn't go, so I was wondering if there's any way possible that you can make me something to go with this dress I bought for a wedding." *Yes, this was spoken as all one sentence for those of us that are grammar conscience.*
"Sure, how "short" is short notice?"
"Oh, a week from Saturday..."
Short notice and custom made aren't often used in the same sentence, but when inspiration is ready to cooperate (and I can hand-deliver the pieces eliminating shipping time) then once in a while magic can happen!
When I delivered it to her yesterday, her response was priceless... "How do you DO that?"
My response: I pointed my very high-energy niece (4) and nephew (3) whom I love more than words and responded "How do YOU do THAT?" :)
Brenda will be the belle of the ball, second to the bride herself and true royal beauty in the eyes of her husband!
