I've also been getting stuff done on a gift piece (which will remain secret until the recipient gets it), and the final scent locket- I worked out a different bail-catch technique for this one which seems to be working OK, so now all I need to do is make some pads, set it up in a box, and get a good photo or 2.
And as far as commissions go- yeah, I love doing them! But I also love working on some of my own stuff (and there's a pin for my mother-in-law that I need to get DONE before she visits over the Xmas holidays). So, if no more commissions are in the offing right now, that's cool; I can maybe finish up some of my long-ongoing projects, maybe start a new fun one or 2, and do some prototypes and Learning Experiences. Sounds like fun, either way. :)
