Mid-Month Goal Check In

Jena from Modish Biz Tips has kindly posted a reminder that it is indeed half-way through August.  Here’s what’s up with my goals:

1.  Send out new Mailers at the end of the month. 

I have the cards, but I need to   

    •buy more stamps,

    •print out labels

   •spend an hour watching something fun and slapping it all together.

2.  Start sketches for a fall mailer. 

Um, nope. I have some ideas, but nothing on paper yet.

3.  Contact 3 more agents about possibly representing me.  

I have a couple in mind and have the materials to send.  Just gotta schedule it in.

4.  Go to the beach. Its August and I haven’t been yet.  Not even once.  And now I live in the “Ocean State.”

Sort of.  We went to one of the many beautiful state parks, and while this one was gorgeous, it definitely wasn’t indicative of your typical RI beach experience, complete with waves and soft sand and clam cakes.  I’ve got such a trip planned for this weekend though. 

5.  Add a newsletter sign up page to my site and blog.  

6. Contact Thumbtack Press to see if they’re interested in carrying any of my work as prints.

7.  Send out a newsletter announcing opening of my online shop.

8. Make a list of possible wholesale stores for Magnetic Kids. (what’s Magnetic Kids? My new{ish} project in the works!)

9. Finish Magnetic Kids wholesale line sheet.

So close!

10. Contact two blogs about my online shop. 

I really just need to bite the bullet on this.  I hate to admit it but I think I’m just a little scared.  

But I feel good at where I’m at so far.  How is everyone else doing?

Anyhow, I’m supposed to be concentrating on a pretty fun illustration project, but I’ve got friends coming for dinner tonight, and I keep getting distracted by the cooking possibilities.  Chocolate mousse…?  Watermelon Basil Salad…?  Agggh!  Gotta get my head back in the game!

    I think you definitely have your priorities straight! 🙂

    I’m bringing haloumi cheese to throw on the grill.
