Projects update: March

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: January | February

February came with unexpected chaos which forced me to change my plans several times over and that month really didn't go my way. Things are still a bit up in the air but I'm trying to focus on things I can actually do something about like finding a job, selling my creations and working on my projects.


Lonely Hearts Movie Night - DONE
Not that many showed up on my movie night but we were a strong bunch who hung out for a couple of hours. I watched Howl's moving castle and Spirited away. Thumbs up. I might do it again.

100 love letters project - DONE
It went great and after public demand I am arranging it again next year, the new event is already up and running. I wrote more about how it went here. I am very pleased.

♥ Selling/giving away
I've been photographing everything now it's just measuring and actually get it all up on tradera (Swedish ebay), well for this time.

♥ 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
I now have my stuff and I started fighting with the cleaning company on what to do with my stuff but yeah I think I need to look them over myself and see if I can clean them or something because really they're a bunch of assholes (the same ones who emptied the other storage room but refuse to stand up for it).

3/4 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. This might get included in the book project, one of the books might support Panzi.
0/1 done

♥ Children's books project

Nothing changed here, other things got in the way but will restart with renewed energy in April. About 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.

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

♥ 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 

♥ Closet project - on hold
I still need to make the holes in the lids though, unsure what tools to use - an awl?

3.5/4 done 


♥ Tech sale - failed
I really can't go into specifics here but my stuff have been taken and I am not hopeful in getting them back, ever, so I will deem this project as failed - not because of me but because of other people.
