this is a little broken wing….a failed experiment in wing making 🙂 It sort of looks like Icarus’ wings when he flew too close to the sun eh?
I made some bookmarks from the collages i created….and also created hangtags of angels. I didn’t think about how much i’d charge for each one (i was thinking 25 cents each)……well i had the printer print them and cut them out for me (which cost quite a bit – one dollar per cut) and now i’m hardly making anything on the hangtags….doh…..ready, fire, aim. Next time i’ll adjust that :).
The colour coded calendar i created for the three days before the Studio Open house
On a piece of paper i created a three day calendar so i wouldn’t go crazy trying to fit everything in and so i could see at a glance what needed doing. Because i’m so visual those teeny black daytimer books just wouldn’t cut it for me. So i colour coded the tasks, red for eating, green for running errands/picking up stuff, pink for creating art and glittering 🙂 , orange for creating posters/mailing invites/setting up event page on facebook, purple for cleaning house etc. Of course i’ve been adjusting things along the way. I would love to know what do you do – what method do you use when you are under the gun and have a myriad of things to do? Do you make lists, have a colour coded system, enlist all of your friends to help? What works for you. Please share in the comments!
My apologies if you came to my blog today under false pretenses! I told you you had to come back to see the happy little blogs to see what i created from them? Well they aren’t done yet. Also i have given up on the idea of making xmas tree ornaments….oh well……ready fire aim. In case you are wondering Ready, Aim, Fire is a marketing term…..but often we are paralysed to do anything because we feel like we don’t have enough information, it’s not good enough, we’re not talented enough…….yadda yadda yadda. So what you do is you shoot and then adjust along the way :). So what if it doesn’t all get done 🙂
I’m beginning to think i’m abusing my smiley face priviledges 🙂
Please check out Kate Harper’s blog – she had a call out for Christmas card designs so i sent my angel card in and it was one of 14 cards chosen based on “interesting design challenges, emotional response, and marketability”. Thank you Kate for the opportunity to share my design with you and your readers! While you are at Kate’s site browse around……she has some wonderful posts there, interesting interviews……lots of inspiration and sage advice for artists.
I hope to see you at my studio tour tomorrow and Sunday!
Have a wonderfully magical weekend.
Make it so 🙂
Love, Violette xo
