Pocket mirrors, now in my shop. Each mirror comes with a sweet little printed pouch to protect it.
I found a great article on what it takes to be really good at what you do*, and it fitted very neatly with something I've noticed in the CraftSanity podcasts: all the people interviewed have been doing some form of what they're doing now since childhood.
A friend's daughter once phoned me for advice about a school project. We discussed stencils and paper-mache and things for a while, getting quite excited, and then she asked me where she could get the supplies. I had no real clue... I think that's the first time I realised that not everyone has a stash of old cardboard boxes, newspapers, and three different kinds of glue at home.
