Really I did!
The wonderful Lyssa-Face has yet to see her commissioned Raspberry Vanilla Hello Kitty Soaps that I need to find some way to transport to her but has already raved and thanked and now even paid. Does this make me a professional? Technically. But probably not really. I still wasn't sure how to charge her when I saw her at work so I asked her what she thought was fair. She handed me twenty dollars in cash. I had never even considered charging her that much but she quickly assured me that she was paying for both the finished product and 'my furthered research'.
I think I may have an investor.
