Projects update: May

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: April | March | February | January

April was full of job hunting and going through stuff in my apartment to see what I can sell. I also baked a lot (like lemon sponge cake and bread). I also cleaned both kitchen and bedroom from top to bottom after the window change since I had wall dust on literally everything in both rooms!




♥ Selling/giving away
I didn't sell anything during April, I had a batch up but I think it was because of Easter that no one bought anything. I've gathered some DVDs and books I'm going to photograph and put up and going to check some of my xbox games which I think are broken, if not I will sell them too. I'm also going to put up some furniture for sale I think. I read somewhere that people have a lot of money in stuff they don't use, so I'm trying to slim down my home and get some money out of it ;)

♥ Finding the perfect job (or a job at all)
Suggestions are appreciated in events and festival organising, cultural events and youth projects all over the world.

♥ Taking care of things in basement
Stand still in April but I will hopefully dare to go to the storage room in May. 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

Not much happened in April, sadly, but I hope things will go more smoothly in May. 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
