Frustraited , angxety all day
Tuesday I sent an email to the customer of the walnut desk explaining the hours I had in the desk (45) and I still needed to put the desk back together , get and apply the leather and all the hardware. I got luck today , Tresa up at C&H had everything I need that was missing this morning. Well yesterday I had not heard back from the customer and they are usually very responsive. This Morning I get this note in an email ;
I am not at all surprised by the labor hours it has taken to complete the desk. From what you have described, it was a huge task and I can't wait to see it. I know that it will be as beautiful as everything else that you have done. We received more compliments this past week-end on the game table and the Napoleonic mirror that you "saved" for us. Let me know when you are ready to bring it out. Also, let me know what we owe you for the leather and do you want a separate payment for that?
She is a real Sweetheart ! SO I did not charge her the full 45 hours of time, I just could not bring myself to that. But I am getting a purity penny and lots of referrals. Picks will be up soon on this. I will take them when we put the desk back in place. It is AWESOME. One of the most beautiful beautiful pieces I have done in a 100% tung oil next to my 54 cal. flint lock.
The Word says worry is a sin and I slipped a bit on this one.
I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
