things i've started and must get on with:
after selling off all old stock of notebook and sketchbooks, i've spent a long time fannying around designing/printing/assembling the new ones. these are nowhere near finished.
in an attempt to be more media ready (i want to start submitting things to the posh mags) i was advised to have 'cut outs' ready to send - i have been playing with this in photoshop. who knew something that looks so simple could be be so time consuming? i've managed one so far.
then i decided that my pile of printed fabric 'scraps' was getting out of hand and so spent time cutting and ironing them ready to be made into packs for the shop.
sooooon!!! some listed here!
i really, really want to spend time creating a 'proper' range of fabrics for one of the quilting big boys. been thinking about this for a long time. am procrastinating big time. am scared.
i want to make a ton more screens for printing. i've been playing more with the handmade screens, i'm liking the effect very much.
i still haven't printed and photographed the new 'loops' design yet! must. do. that. soon.
sort out my poor neglected folksy shop, it's looking pathetic.
i've been playing with packaging ideas - i've had a lot of wholesale inquiries that i really must take advantage of, but my products are not 'shop ready', this needs sorting out asap.
i've made some little house blocks for 3 special little girls - i MUST get them finished and in the post !!!
all is not lost though, these are the things i've managed to actually finish or things that i have accomplished:
commission for a wedding (although need to get it in the post!)
i hit 1000 sales on etsy this week!
i had a play with my 2 new hand drawn screens and made a one off original print called loops and leaves.
i discovered that my prints, despite not being 'proper' repeats, look pretty cool in larger pieces...as you can see in this piece i printed for an etsy customer...
hmmm, i think i need more things in my 'completed' list.... dare i say: roll on september?
how are your to do lists coming on during the summer holidays...?
