Those custom orders i was so worried about

So I got my second two custom orders finished. Hey this is getting pretty exciting! Its sorta fun showing people how you interpreted the pictures of their pets onto the shell. Even more fun when they love what you've done with it :D

This is Lulubelle, a beautiful beagle/basset girl :) She has a very expressive face and i tried to capture her in a curious head tilt.

Now her owner happens to live in Canada. I just realized that at the last moment as i was I was packing the shell up. I've never sent to Canada before. I hope its not incredibly expensive. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

This trio is Teegan, Maggie, and K9 - three happy rescues! This is gonna be a gift from a friend to the owner of these three guys. I hope she likes it :)

I've acutlly noticed that a lot about my shells, more people but them as gifts than for themselves. I can't blame them, its a pretty interesting gift if i say so myself :P

Now if i could just paint some regular shells just for my shop... I've been meaning to for like two monts now. Speaking of which, that was the last time i had a regular sale in my shop. Meaning not custom, not reserved listing - just someone finding something in my shop and actually buying it. Sigh. I'm gonna paint a pug shell - anything pug related seems to be well loved. right?

Thanks again Tatyana. I am so looking forward to getting your portrait shell!! It's such an original idea, I adore it!!
I talked about you on the Etsy Beagle Street Team too...I think one of the members maybe contacting you about her dog!

You did a great job on the shells. The head tilt was really sweet and you captured it well..
