monthly goal meetup


November was busy, productive and tasty.  I have been blessed with a slew of custom magnet orders and I am so grateful for it. I am also grateful for 4 days off for Thanksgiving weekend to spend time with my family.  If it wasn't for that time I think I may have burnt out by now.  That truly gave me a burst of new energy!

November Goals
  • web site client - finish up design galleries and press/news page - umm they want to start over with a different design approach that was presented in the first drafts!  Start fresh in the new year.
  • teach cartooning to 2 elementary classes each week - this is working out much better than the 3 classes last session, I just need to ease my anxiety the day before and of classes.
  • east vallery artisans logo design - done
  • promote custom magnets for the holidays - done
  • fill custom magnet orders - 10 orders completed in Nov!
  • continue to test out renewing etsy items daily - still doing it, not seeing much difference in sales but I am seeing an increase in shop visits. I think I'll give it a go for a bit longer.
  • post new items on etsy - bookmarks and note cards -  note cards posted!
  • test out new items - bottle cap bookmarks and bobby pins- done
  • craft sales 11/12 and 11/26
  • create custom coasters for Suzan - need to do
  • create custom painting for Jenny - on hold until new year
  • create custom painting for Inessa - on hold until new year
  • cook Thanksgiving dinner - delicious, i love this holiday and all the cooking that I get to do for it.
  • family fall crafts - we made a fun turkey craft on Thanksgiving
  • set aside gym time - good with the exception of holiday week
I can't believe the new year is only a month away!  I am already thinking about some new trails to blaze. But for now, here's what's on the agenda for December.

December Goals
  • wedding thank you cards order
  • teach cartoon class 2x a week
  • wrap up custom holiday orders, cut off is Dec 10th
  • post bookmarks on etsy
  • continue renewing items daily
  • craft sale Dec 10th
  • custom coasters for Suzan
  • make holiday cards with kids, bake cookies, enjoy my dad's visit, take the polar express, have breakfast with Santa, make gingerbread houses and spread holiday cheer!
Wishing everyone a joyous holiday with sprinkles of creativity, love and the magic of the season. xoxo

    Wow! You pretty much cleaned that list's clock! (Except the web design do-over...ARGH...I feel for you!)

    Have an AWESOME December Kristen!
