I have gotten this before. I'm a costumer, so by force of necessity, I've learned how to do lots of different things. Sewing, leather, basic jewellery making, fabric painting, and even basic chainmail and scale mail.
I made a few pieces of scale mail while working night shift security, and it takes forever, even for small pieces. I worked on a larger piece by doing it in segments- doing small pieces at work in between rounds, then piecing them into the main body of the thing later.
A coworker of mine wanted me to make her a whole scale mail short skirt, for club wear. She didn't want to pay for time, since she figured I could do it at work, like my own little pieces. And yes, she said it would be good promotion- she could tell people who made it.
I also write and draw- I've posted my stuff here before. I do mainly urban fantasy, with my characters usually being personified skyscrapers and the like.
My mom keeps wanting me to draw her something to hang on the living room wall. But she doesn't want what I like to do. She wants something like a Victorian lady holding a parasol. Aside from some steampunk dabbling, I'm not really interested in Victorian stuff, and ladies with parasols just don't interest me, when it comes to taking the time to finish a piece. So she doesn't really want my work, she wants her picture with my name on it.
My sister once dabbled in writing some short stories, and my mom told her that she should get me to illustrate them. Thankfully, my sister discouraged that, saying that her writing and my artistic style didn't fit well- she wrote about ordinary, every day people, which I'm not really interested in drawing, given that most of my subjects aren't even human.
On another note, for the lady who's afraid to take her gorgeous cross stitch to Micheal's to have it framed, because of an entitlement poisoned mother whose daughter works there and might make it disappear, I would have gone right to a manager too, and told them what that entitlehog told me. After all, they might like to know they've got a potential thief working for them. Or perhaps daughter might end up having words with her mother, about how such entitled ranting could make her lose her job.
