Instant Gratification Signup Post

SIGNUPS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED! I have a few more requests to sneak in over the next few days; today was apparently the day that all the people I've been trying to get in touch with about Very Urgent Things decided they could finally all call me. All at once. *headdesk* But listings are up in the store if you're one of the pieces I didn't have to bump to tomorrow - thank you and enjoy!

This is the signup post for April's Name-Your-Price Instant Gratification session! I will be doing simple custom work from approximately 10 am to 6pm on Tuesday, April 14th. Please read this post carefully before placing your request, particularly the parts in bold text.

If you can describe what you in ONE paragraph and I have the necessary materials in stock, I will make it for you! Simple is the operative word - I should be able to look at your request and immediately start working without having to ask for more information. Please be as specific as possible about what you want and how much you want to spend. (I am bad at mind-reading.) Requests that are missing necessary information will automatically be moved to the back of the queue, which may result in them not being finished on Tuesday. 

There is a $5 minimum and a $50 maximum for these pieces. If you really loved something that was more expensive than you could ever afford, don't hesitate to ask if I can make something similar to it at a much lower price point - I won't be offended and I'm very good at finding ways to do exactly that. I firmly believe that handcrafted art should be accessible to everyone.

I will reply to your request with a link to a reserved-for-you listing in the store. I do ask that you either purchase for your item or let me know that it's not to your liking within 48 hours. Any unpaid items will be made available to the general public on Friday, April 17th. All purchases must be made through the cart system on the web store, which accepts both credit cards and PayPal.

I reserve the right to limit this to a maximum of 30 requests and one item per person, as well as to say "that needs to be a regular commission" for any requests that are too complex, vague, or time-consuming for this format.

Requests are open as of now/strong> and will remain open until approximately noon on Tuesday or when we hit the 30-request cap, whichever comes first. Tell me what you'd like and how much you want to spend and I will do my best to make it for you. I will be working through requests in a roughly first-come, first-served basis.

You can comment below using a variety of login options, most of which will notify you by email when I respond to your comment. If you don't get an email by Tuesday night, please check back for your link.

(Please DO NOT use Facebook messaging/comments, Twitter @s/DMs, or any other form of social media commenting/messaging to place requests! The ONLY way I will be taking requests for this session is in the comments on this blog post. (Unless if you are plotting a surprise for someone, in which case you you can email

(Need inspiration? New here and not sure what I make? Have a look at what's recently sold to see what I've been doing recently, search the 2003-2013 archive, or browse through ten years of photos on Flickr.)
