little frustrated) I'm looking at each encounter as an opportunity to grow. Most of that isn't true but sounded like something I should be saying.
She then suggested that I disassemble my piece and pack it into a smaller box (the box size, not the weight being the primary problem with the postal system). Now I'm a nervous wreck. Take it apart? I had worked quite hard to ensure it's never coming apart when I initially constructed the piece. To make long story short, that is exactly what I did. It then packed in a much smaller container and off it went to Australia. Four weeks later, I received an email from my customer who exclaimed it had arrived intact and was already assembled and sitting on her table. Heavy, heavy sigh of relief!!!!!!! Again, a huge learning curve but one I am truly grateful for having experienced :)
