I have got to the point where I am blessed with being really busy. I have lots of orders and request for custom items.
Unfortunately, people may have to wait a couple of weeks for items. Obviously I inform them at the time of request, but some people still think I can get them there tomorrow.
I could employ someone, but this means increasing my prices and I feel I like to keep prices reasonable so that Handmade Special Items are still affordable.
I could try and rush everything, but each item and order is special to me and I like to make sure it is made with attention to detail and to a standard that I would want for myself.
Handmade takes time.
