new year, new goals

Monday, January 30th, 2012

I know this post is a bit late, a whole month to be exact but I’ve been trying to regroup this month, decide on my goals for the year, brainstorm on new products,  clean / simplify my house and business stuff like taxes. I thought that I’d share some of my goals for the year as well as some big events from 2011, which will be hard, because it was a great year! Twenty eleven brought me my best craft year yet, a new to me letterpress, my cards in two retail shops (!!!), two trips to Paris and a trip to Harry Potter world, and an entire year of working for myself. It really was a wonderful year and looking I’m looking forward to the great things that 2012 will bring. Without further ado here are some of my 2012 goals; continue creating new products and updating my shop, kick ass at the National Stationery Show (yep I’m showing there as part of the Ladies of Letterpress booth), get my new letterpress in working order (this is tippity top of the list),  participate in more craft shows, redesign fancy seeing you here, get my cards in more retail shops and attend Alt Summit in 2013 (so sad that I couldn’t go this year.) I know it’s a lot but it can and will be done.

happy belated new year to everyone! hope you have some exciting and challenging goals for this year!

make my feet go

My good friend and fellow art director Christian Williams will be running the Boston Marathon on April 16 for the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge (DFMC). I’ve known Christian for about 6+ years and therefore I know this is a HUGE challenge for him, (he practically hates running.) BUT I also know that he is very determined, which means he will succeed even if he’s crawling across the finish line. Using his art director skills he created a great little campaign/site for his journey. And he’s challenging all of us to donate at least five dollars. “Five dollars. It’s not a lot to part with. We spend almost that much a day on coffee. Five dollars may not seem like a lot. But, if enough people contribute…five dollars will add up quickly. In addition to knowing that you’ve contributed to one of the nations leading cancer institutes I’ll also go ahead and send you one of the buttons shown below. Please do you part and spread the word. Together We Can.”

Please donate if you can and spread the word because every bit helps. For more information about the marathon and Christian’s running journey check out his site Make My Feet Go.
