Completing A Tall Order Gets Me Every Time


We made it! Rather, we made them! All 500 of these Toyidermy business card holders were completed, painted, touched up and shipped out. And I couldn’t have done it without the help of my “partners-in-craft” who I can’t thank enough. | If you’re just tuning in, catch up with part 1 and part 2 of this story. |


It was a tedious job and I spent a lot of it kicking myself for accepting such a huge order with a tight timeline. But, once it was complete (and I caught up on some much-needed sleep) I felt so accomplished and happy I had taken on the challenge.


Each animal was meticulously painted by hand, sometimes with two coats. Then came the eyebrows and the Benefit logo stamp.

I think they turned out pretty darn good, don’t you? And now for some “beauty shots.” (pun intended.)

I foud these bad boys on the internet and can only think that after I sent the herd to Benefit, they added this cute chain and tag. The zebra says “Nice brows, wild thing.” If you’re unfamiliar with Benefit, they are known for their wonderful brow products and their “brow bars.”

And here’s another “brow cow” stolen from the internet, with the hangtag “How cow… what beautiful brows!”


So there you have it guys. That is the whole story of why I was missing in action for a little while at the end of the year. Thanks for bearing with me during those crazy times and this crazy story!
