Last update: January
January was mostly filled with job hunting and my new book project. I also started two other projects since last that will end soon: Lonely Hearts Movie Night and 100 love letters project.
♥ Selling/giving away
I'm hoping for some sunny days so I can photograph everything. It's been snow and cloudy for quite some time now.
♥ Finding the perfect job
Suggestions are appreciated in events and festival organising, cultural events and youth projects all over the world.
♥ 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.
♥ 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. This might get included in the book project, one of the books might support Panzi.
♥ 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. I got some people interested and planning on a meeting with a printing company soon.
♥ NEW: Lonely Hearts Movie Night
For some V-day is just a commercialised holiday and for some it's a great day to spend with those you love and for some, it's a day to remind you how lonely you are. Therefore I created Lonely Hearts Movie Night which start 19:00 GMT+1 on V-day. To join in on the chat you need a deviantart.com account. You can read more here.
♥ NEW: 100 love letters project
I wanted to spread some love on V-day and came up with the idea to get 100 people all over the world to write 1 letter to a stranger and leave it on a public space on V-day. A few signed up on deviantart but it wasn't until I created a facebook event that people started to roll in. As I write this there are 442 people coming and 185 maybe coming on facebook alone. The goal has been reached. I'm definitely doing this next year too. You can read more about it at the facebook event here and on deviantart 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.
♥ 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.
♥ 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.
♥ Closet project - on hold
I still need to make the holes in the lids though, unsure what tools to use - an awl?
