Projects update: September

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: August | June & July | May | April | March | February | January

September was a chaos. I've been sick most of the month (or well in pain - a bit better  now though) and best guess from doctors is kidneys at the moment - we'll see how it goes. My second focus was to get enough money to pay all my bills which I succeeded to do. I sold several orders on etsy and I sold some stuff on Swedish ebay (tradera).

3/4 hopes was fulfilled: 1) stuff sold in my etsy shop 2) people liking my new notebook styles 3) enough money to pay bills. Alas my hope that I would be hired didn't happen.

Hopes for October: I am hoping that a meeting about a really cool artisan crafts fair will happen and that we can start something amazing. I hope I get a job or at least money to survive another month. I also hope that I will sell at least 5 items in my shop.


♥ Selling/giving away
This is going slow but steady. Keep selling something every time I put stuff up for sale. It is not much but at least it is a small income and I get more space.

♥ Finding the perfect job (or a job at all)
Suggestions are appreciated in whatever, I am getting desperate.

♥ Taking care of things in basement
I haven't been down since the flooding to take care of things, but then I saw several stuff I could sell so I should probably get cracking on that. My drawings and photos could for the most part be saved so that made me happy.
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 $6.46. This might get included in the book project, one of the books might support Panzi.

♥ Children's books project

Other chaos popped up during September so I will need to focus on this when things calm down a bit. 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
