Although being a member of Things With Wings isn't really a "job," it's more of a privilege...
I had the honor of creating a custom order for a man who, like any good husband, took his wife's very strong hints that she wanted a Things With Wings piece for her birthday. :-) After some brainstorming, he came up with the idea to create a piece using the meanings of their sons' names. (Their meanings were why they chose the names they did):
Luke = Light
Nicholas = Victory
Jack = Grace
So here's what I came up with:
Here's the response I got today from the husband:
"Got it today - how fast was that!!? And then..I just couldn't wait and I had her open it 19 days before her birthday. She teared up, loved it, loved it, loved it. It's absolutely perfect - thank you so much. Feel free to put it on your blog/FB whenever! THANK YOU - it's better than I expected. :)"
From the Birthday Girl:
"There aren't words enough to THANK YOU for my amazing birthday present. I love it more than I could ever say! Thank you for seeing my husband's vision and creating such a gorgeous piece of art for our home. I will treasure it always."
THAT'S why I love doing this! It's an honor and a privilege! Makes my heart full!
