Projects update: April

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: March | February | January

March was full of stuff, it was my birthday and I was being creative with new stuff. I also put up on etsy after getting my manufacturer application approved. I've also applied to several jobs but hasn't gotten one yet, but I have an interview next week so we'll see. I'm hoping to start up my book project and also the photo exhibition I had last year, in the coming weeks.




♥ Selling/giving away
I've sold some stuff on tradera during end of March and I'm planning on putting up some more in the following days. Due to the shipping price change (April 1st) I need to fix that too. I'm going to go through stuff in basement and see what I can sell from it.

♥ 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've given up on the cleaning company because clearly they do not want to help me, I will see what I can do myself with the things in basement. I truly hope my box with Christmas ornaments can be cleaned and thus saved. I will also see what I can sell.

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 $6.46. This might get included in the book project, one of the books might support Panzi.

♥ 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.

♥ 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.

♥ 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?
