Once it was because I was attempting a design that looked complex but
turned out not to be, so I charged fifteen when I had quoted twenty

people brought and they were so impressed they tipped me like $10. A
trio of 30-ish ladies who came to my house each tipped me a couple
My mom was always very firm that you tip the lady cutting your hair,
but I don't think she tipped the folks who painted our house. Maybe
people put us in that category? Or because we vend at festivals, and
you wouldn't think of tipping the lady who made the pretty painted
snowglobes you buy for your mom.
I think I'll try putting out a tip jar and seeing what happens.
