I am feeling the full swing of summertime, and all of last month’s goals went out the window.  Well…not ALL of them.

1. Work on artwork.

This is something that is my top priority right now.  Have got a few things in the works.

2. Bring 5 more of each card to Parts and Labour (on South Congress in Austin, TX).

Check!  Still need to bring more cards up there though!

3. Start Research for a business plan.

This is going to get postponed for a bit.

I am going to keep my goals short an sweet this month.

July Goals:

1.  My priority goal this month is to work on artwork.  I am feeling the need to get back to making art, and now is the perfect time to do it.  No greeting card holidays coming up for a few months now.

"The best ship is friendship" from 2007...Need some 2009 art!

2. Bring 5 more of each card design to Parts and Labour. When I go back to drop off those cards, take a picture of Parts and Labour for a blog post.

3.  Start research for business plan, and create a time line for writing business plan (time line to start this month).

 

Revisiting my June Goals

Did I accomplish what I meant to this month?  Let’s take a look:

June Goals:

1. Clean and organize studio and post before and after photos.

This is always in flux.  Still need to post photos!!!

2. Bring card designs to Parts and Labour (South Congress, Austin)

I brought my cards to Parts and Labour yesterday!  Hooray!

3. Update out-of-date flickr photos, and upload new card(father’s day and wedding congratulations) photos to flickr.

Done!  My flickr is almost up to date.  I still need to add photos of my new “Thank You, Darling” postcards.

4. Work on a 10 card pack.  Mix and Match or greeting cards for each occasion throughout the year.

You can mix and match 10 Glademade cards here.  I also added a mix and match 3-pack here.

5. Start research for business plan, and create a time line for writing business plan (time line to start this month).

This is not done.  Still on my agenda!

6. Take a trip to Dallas to research Dallas Market Center.  Investigate whether I want to “go to market”.  Anyone want to go to Dallas with me?

I’m not really sure of the feasibility of this one.  As it turns out, you either have to have a booth at the market, or you have to be a buyer.  I found a loop-hole though:  interior designers can bring up to 3 clients.  I’ll be working on becoming a client in the future.
