Since everyone is dropping like flies, and I don't have the time to devote to this to do it justice at this point in time, I think we'll just wrap it up.
My goal here was to challenge your creativity, and help to develop a different way of looking at things. I think I have done a decent job of doing so.
I hope you enjoyed the experience. I have. I learned a lot of how to prepare for doing this again, when I have time to devote to it.
As for myself, there are not enough hours in the day, and my fledging, yet overly successful business is taking up nearly all of my time. I've been open for six months now, and I am at the teetering point of thinking about hiring an additional jeweler. That means growing, and getting a few more steady accounts to support the decision.
Others have left for various reasons, and I hope you all do well in whatever you do!
Glad to hear the business is booming. I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed being a part of the group. Thanks for taking the time to create the "class" and working with us all.
I have learned more than a thing or two about photography and art along the way, and you have most definately changed the way I look at everything around me, and how I approach taking a photograph.
Thanks for the time you spent with us. I learned a bit about the fundamentals of photography, it should serve as a good base for continued learning.
I can appreciate that you're busy and hope you have continued success.
David, great to hear your business is growing, real life is first and you should take care of it. All the best with that.
Because of you now I am seeing things in a different way. Thanks for all your support.
