A week after shipping the completed 20" lazy susan off to California, I woke up to this email:
Oh wow!! It's beautiful! I really can't say enough. And you really connected to what I envisioned. Your choice of colors is perfect. I'm glad you didn't listen to me and paint the edge white. The dark blue is the right choice. I haven't shown Pat yet...I'm going to surprise her by just putting it on the table and wait til she notices. My only complaint is...you really didn't charge enough!!...holy cow...the packaging alone looks expensive...and all your time and artistry...I feel guilty. Look for a little surprise from me. It's been a pleasure!
Thank you for the honor, Jim. You are a very gracious and generous Being!
Update: The "little surprise" from Jim was more money! Seriously! I have been so blessed throughout my entire mosaic-making career with the absolute best clients imaginable. Who sends someone more than what they asked for? How generous a heart.
