This weekend was rather industrious for Rachel and Benjamin, who were each working to fulfill their first commissions. Benjamin made a set of winter hats as a gift for the set of twins around the corner from us. When we babysat them at our house, their mom mentioned to Benjamin that they needed new hats this year and that she'd gladly pay him to make a bigger set for them. Benjamin's eyes lit up with dollar signs and he worked rather diligently on these hats for several days.
It turned out simply beautifully! Our neighbours said they'd point everyone to her website, which made her a little flustered because she had just thrown up a whole bunch of pictures with "asdf asdf asdf" as filler text. She'll get in there one day to write some descriptions for her cake (perhaps over winter break).
Well done, Rachel!
