When I look at the success I've had with my crafting, I want to kick myself for not seriously starting earlier. So many people wanted to know where my "store" was and if I had a business card. And word of mouth would have worked fabulously for me because the island is so small, and everyone knows everyone. A lot of people came up to me and said, "Oh, you're Miquela. I've heard about the beautiful things you make!"
I've determined to continue once we move back to continental France, but the buying public will be so different that I don't think I can bank on having the same amount of success. I hope that I do, however; I have so many ideas that I'd like to make a reality.

* remember this entry where I said I was going to take it easy after May 2? Yeah, guess the joke's on me. Yet another expo. Actually, this one was planned, but I hadn't heard confirmation, so I thought it might have been cancelled. No such *luck.*
