  First place an order for Broom Favors. Then started chatting on Facebook and I told her I could make her Handfasting Broom.  Custom Made Handfasting Broom (Besom) - August 13, 2011 - Per Broom Quote Form - June 2, 2011 - "What is the Inscription (Wood Burning)? Can we have our names and wedding date? Also I couldn't pick...I am trusting you, My wedding colors are light pink and black. What ever flowers and ribbon you think will be good I trust it all as I love your stuff. I kinda just went threw and picked like all pink....not even sure so your judgement is best. I was just thinking like light pink ribbon." H. Strong (Laube), Sterling Heights, MI

June 2, 2011 - "Hey, The inscription is wood burned onto the wood before sealing the wood.  The inscription can be your names and wedding date. The wood burning symbols are the symbols like a cauldron, rune letters, triad knot, claddagh and more on the wood burning page.  This type of wood burning I charge for each symbol. Okay, you have given me a challenge, which I love the best, because it lets my creative brain take over and that's when I design the best brooms. I am working on your quote right now.  Just let me know if you want any symbols and let me know what you want your inscriptions to say." Lirica

June 3, 2011 - "Hi, We like just our names and the wedding date on the wood. Thanks, H. Strong (Laube), Sterling Heights, MI

June 6, 2011 - "Hey, On the inscription, do you want just your first names or your first names and last name?  Just a reminder that I do not charge for shipping until I am ready to ship the broom out, so the shipping totals I have are estimates only." Lirica

June 7, 2011 - "Hi, I would like our first and last name for the inscription name part." H. Strong (Laube), Sterling Heights, MI

July 18, 2011 - "Hi Lirica, I am just doing lots of e-mailing this morning on wedding stuff and I was just checking in to see how things are coming.....getting really excited to see it all! I know I had mentioned in an e-mail earlier to ship ground but if we need to go quicker to get here in time is fine too. Just let me know when to plan to ship and we can go from there. Hope you had a great weekend! Thanks" H. Strong (Laube), Sterling Heights, MI

July 18, 2011 - "Hi, You must have heard me yesterday when I was talking to my husband.  I was going to send you an email later today with an update.  As I was getting ready to cut and sand your broom handle yesterday and pit bull puppy showed up at my door.  So, everything came to a halt while we gave her some water and food.  She is between 2 and 4 months old.  Once everything was taken care of I got back to my task of the day.  Your handle is cut sanded and ready for wood burning, which I am doing today.  I plan to take a picture of the wood burning when I am finished and send it to you.  I am also finishing up the favors today and will be taking a picture of them too to send to you. I am hoping to have everything done this week, so I can ship it out to you this week.  I am shooting for shipping on Wednesday, which will give it 3 weeks to get to you and the UPS web site said ground shipping would take 4 days to get to you.  I will send you an email later today to let you know how everything is going." Lirica

July 18, 2011 - "Hi Lirica, AWWWWW We just got a pit puppy too 2 months ago! They are great pets! Great on everything else! Good luck with pup....send pics of her too! LOL" H. Strong (Laube), Sterling Heights, MI

July 25, 2011 - "Hello, Sorry for the delay, but both puppy and baby got really sick after the last email.  Everyone is doing better.  I finished the broom favors and I have attached a picture.  I will be finishing the broom tonight, so I wanted to get started on billing you for the shipping as it will get a day or 2 for the money to clear and I want to get this out to you by no later then Wednesday." Lirica

July 25, 2011 - "Hi, I am sorry to hear that both the puppy and the baby were sick I hope they are doing better now! Cannot wait to see them! Thanks!" H. Strong (Laube), Sterling Heights, MI

July 25, 2011 - "Hey, I know you are really busy with the last minute details, so this will be very short.  I wanted to know if you got the broom?  You can give me a testimony and pics later." Lirica

July 25, 2011 - "YES, we got the broom! I love it! thank you so much for doing it!I will send you pics soon!" H. Strong (Laube), Sterling Heights, MI - Waiting for a Testimony.
