I used to spend a lot of my time trying to make other people happy. Then I discovered something- you can’t make everyone happy. Especially if you want to be happy too. So now I just do my crafting projects for me. No special orders or requests and if you’re lucky enough to get one, good for you. Is that awful of me? I’m not sure, but it’s certainly a lot less stress.
Have you ever tried to price your products when someone wants you to make them something custom? It’s hard. I can figure up materials in a heartbeat, but to set a price for my time- that’s something else entirely.
How do you handle projects for other people? Do you even do it? Or are your projects specifically for you?
