Projects update: January

When I do things that is a bit bigger I call them projects, it can be everything from organising an event to rearranging my kitchen. It's good for both having a good overview of what needs to be done and for evaluating when it's finished. Below are some of the ones I've been working on lately and their status.

Last update: December

I almost forgot this update, awkward! December was mostly filled with creating stuff and prep for Christmas fairs and actually being at the fairs. It was, I think, one of my most productive months during 2013 when it comes to my crafts.

Ongoing

 
♥ Selling/giving away
I focused on getting stuff ready for the Christmas fairs so I didn't work much on this except actually adding more stuff to the pile. I'm hoping for some sunny days so I can photograph everything.
Neverending

♥ Finding the perfect job
Suggestions are appreciated in events and festival organising, cultural events and youth projects all over the world.
0/1 done

♥ Taking care of things in basement
Nothing changed. My friend, who owns the storage unit my stuff are in (after the fire), is as easily caught as a unicorn - still.

2/4 done 


Project Panzi hospital
I read an article about the survivors of sexual violence that Panzi have taken care of and that the hospital need an industrial washing machine so through deviantART I'm trying to collect money, by selling donated prints. You can see more here. So far only collected $1.

♥ Closet project
I still need to make the holes in the lids though, unsure what tools to use - an awl?
3.5/4 done

♥ NEW: Children's books project
I've slowly gotten more and more disturbed that 90% of the main characters are boys in books and that if there is a girl she's wimpy and frankly not independent and cool and dare to do things. So, I started my own project where I hope to organise and make 5 children's books with girl leads, hopefully with the help of some talented writers and illustrators. You can read more here.

On hold

♥ Friendship project - on hold
3 (of 4) still needs to be photographed and shipped to their owners. I've just put the box with the bracelets in a safe place so now I can't find it. It might have been moved to the studio.
3/4 done

♥ Tech sale - on hold
All of the basement things are in another place due to fire and are smoke damaged (thankfully not thrown away as some of the stuff or burnt up). Tech sale is therefore put on hold. Need to get it all cleaned before I can sell it off.
1/4 done

♥ Earring project Z - on hold
Haven't had the time to work on this. This was mostly to inspire myself, I'm being plenty of inspired lately without it. Parts: make, photograph and put up on Etsy and deviantART.
1/4 done
