monthly goal meetup

October, so sad to see you go.  It was an amazing month.  Our family staycation rocked. I realized just how much I missed the people I see and live with every day.  I get myself so wrapped up in this project and that project that taking a whole week to catch up and enjoy each day with my favorite people in the whole world was fantastic.

October Goals
  • web site client - in progress and moving along well
  • logo design client - completed
  • promote custom magnets for the holidays - underway
  • promote monthly sale & test out renewing Etsy items daily - underway, getting more traffic but no extra sales yet, I'll give it another month of daily renewing to assess.
  • family staycation - woo hoo! - so much awesomeness!
  • make Halloween decorations - kids want more spooky stuff! boo,didn't get to create.  oh well we'll try for fall/thanksgiving crafts
  • reacquaint myself with the gym - YES!  it is great to be back even if it's just 2-3 days a weeks
  • cook up some real food not all the processed stuff we've been eating lately (I blame it on coupons!) - made a few new dishes, my son E's new favorite dish is ground turkey tacos. 
I accomplished everything I set out to do last month and that feels great.  November is shaping up to be a busy month.  I'm going to take it in stride one step at a time and really try to not alienate myself from the rest of the world. Because really what is the point of that, right?

November Goals
  • web site client - finish up design galleries and press/news page
  • teach cartooning to 2 elementary classes each week
  • east vallery artisans logo design
  • promote custom magnets for the holidays
  • fill custom magnet orders
  • continue to test out renewing etsy items daily
  • post new items on etsy - bookmarks and notecards
  • test out new items - bottle cap bookmarks and bobby pins
  • craft sales 11/12 and 11/26
  • create custom coasters for Suzan
  • create custom painting for Jenny
  • create custom painting for Inessa
  • cook Thanksgiving dinner
  • family fall crafts
  • set aside gym time
  • set aside cooking time
