  1. I am soooo impressed. It makes me really happy to see this posted.

  2. Thanks! I'm happy to finally be able to post it.

  3. It's a serious bargain, too! There's really no replacement for learning from real artisans.

  4. Trying to set the price was probably one of the most difficult things I've done in a while -- I have this bad habit of forgetting to pay myself :)

    I appreciate the props! Really. Thanks :)
