I feel so flattered when people email and ask to be put on my waiting list as a decorating client. Fortunately and unfortunately, I am beyond overbooked, and because of the exciting developments I just mentioned, I'm keeping the decorating business on the smaller side for now. It was a tough decision, but I feel good about it.
I feel really bad every day when I have to turn down new clients. Then recently I realized that many of my readers are decorators trying to get their name out in to the market. There is more than enough business to go around. I liked the idea of this post, where readers were able to share their favorite fabric stores around the nation. And I thought it might be helpful to start a similar type post that acts sort of like a decorator yellow pages.
