Custom Made Handfasting Broom (Besom) - July 14, 2006 - "Please tell me if you have any suggestions for flowers or colors. I don't see things in my head very well so I always appreaciate a little help. My wedding colors are sage green, citrine and ivory. Thanks so much." K. Graham, Lithonia, GA.
July 17, 2006 "Hello Kristin, I recevived our request and I am putting together your quote. I am guessing that Citrine is an orange type color? Might I suggest the yellow Sesame Bloom (#2) too. It's light enough that I think it will go well with the other colors. I don't think you want the peach phalais, it's not an orange color. Let me know what you decide, so I can finish your quote." Lirica
July 17, 2006 "Yes, citrine is in the orange family. It's an ambery orange type of color. I think the yellow sesame bloom would be just fine. If it helps, my favorite broom for sale on your site is the 68 1/2" Cottonwood broom. I think the colors are beautiful and I especially love the wheat in that broom. I love creator input and creativity as I am not very good at art and design myself. So if you have an idea, run with it cause I'm sure it will be beautiful. Thanks," K. Graham, Lithonia, GA.
July 18, 2006 "Hello Kristin, I have your quote done. Please let me know if you want me to do the broom. I will need to make and send your broom by the end of August. I have 2 Festivals that I am doing in September and 1 in October and I want to make sure that you get your broom before then. Also, I would like to ask for a written Testimony and a picture of you jumping over the broom for the web site. I can also send you pictures via email of the broom before I send it, if you want. By the way, how did you find me?" Lirica
July 19, 2006 "Thank you for the quote. I would very much like for you to do the broom. Pictures would be great. And I found you a while back by doing a search for "Handfasting Brooms" on google. I looked at a bunch of sites that didn't have what I was looking for and then I found yours. I can hardly wait to see it. Thanks," K. Graham, Lithonia, GA.
July 19, 2006 "Sounds Great Kristin. I look forward to making your broom. Out of everything I make on my web site, making the Handfasting brooms is my favorite part. I love to create something beautiful for someone for there special day. Talk with ya soon," Lirica
August 29, 2006 "Hi, Just wanted to see if you have any pictures yet of the broom. Hope you are doing well. Thanks," K. Graham, Lithonia, GA.
August 30, 2006 "Hi Kristin, I haven't forgotten about you. I have been busy working on your broom. I pulled it apart 3 times, because it wasn't doing want I wanted it to do. However, it is now working the way I want it to and I am almost done. I will email you as soon as it is finished." Lirica
August 31, 2006 "Hello Kristin, I finished your broom last night. Everything finally came together just the way I wanted it to. I really hope you like it. I took the pictures last night and then I boxed up the broom this morning and had UPS come pick it up. I worked on the pictures today and they are ready to send to you. UPS picked up your broom at 11:00 am and your the estimated delivery is end of day, Thursday, September 7, 2006. I also packed inside a Free goodie bag. Inside the bag you will find your broom tag (which you can put on the broom after the wedding. The tag has all the information about your broom. If you have any problems, please let me know. I have attached the pictures of your broom to this email. Have a happy handfasting/wedding day!!" Lirica
August 31, 2006 "I just wanted to let you know that I got the pictures and I love it! The colors come together beautifully and it is going to fit right into the wedding colors. I can't wait to have it in person, but mostly I can't wait to use it in the ceremony. I will send you plenty of pictures to choose from. Thank you so much for you time and creativity. Sincerely," K. Graham, Lithonia, GA.
September 01, 2006 "Hi Kristin, It was my pleasure to create your broom and I am very glad that you like your broom. I think you will be blown away when you see it in person. Like most things pictures never to do the brooms justice. The brooms always look better in person. Have a wonderful handfasting/wedding day!" Lirica
May 20, 2007 "Thank you again so much for the beautiful broom that you made for my handfasting. The pictures that you sent me before hand do not do it justice. The ceremony went beautifully and I got many wonderful comments about the broom. It was a blessing to find you because I must have looked at a hundred websites trying to find a quality, hand-crafted broom and had zero luck until I found your website. I will most definitely refer you to everyone I know. For part of our wedding gift, my father hand-crafted a wooden shelf with brackets to hold our broom and it now hangs in our bedroom to always remind us of our love and commitment to one another. I have attached some pictures from the ceremony. There should be one of us before we jumped the broom, one jumping it, and I threw in one of the awesome tree that we got married under. I like to think of it as the Tree of Life. I think it may be an Ash tree but I'm not certain. I hope you like them. Thanks so much." K. and B. Simpson, Lithonia, GA.
