Thursday evening already

How fast the week passes.  I don’t have nearly enough crossed off on my “to do” list.  I write out, on paper, each Monday my “to do” list.  Often times I think of Ron Henriksen, who I worked for many years ago when I was a young Interior Designer.  Each Monday Ron would take his […]

great week end…

Just jumped off my bike.  Mark and I rode out through our neighborhood (truly the “HOOD”, Bayview, in SF) to Candlestick Park and continued on winding around to parallel 101 South for awhile then over to Oyster Point.  A great ride, hour and a 1/2 so a good work out plus being able to ride […]

great meeting!

I was totally energized after walking out of Copperfield’s Bookstore in Petaluma this afternoon.  I met with Yvette Bird, card buyer.  From a marketing standpoint, I thought it might be smart to get a few different card buyers view points on not only my work, but how they purchase cards and other pertinent info such […]

busy little bee

I’m so “pea picken proud” (a phrase I loved and lifted from an old friend in Indiana years ago) of myself for having been so dedicated to the creation of cards yesterday.  I spent a good number of hours sitting on my comfortable couch, laptop open, legs up on the coffee table as I deftly […]

procrastination

Funny how procrastination can happen…even when you desperately want to get something done….procrastination is there waiting for you to put off what you plan to do with distractions like facebook, and email and cookies to make to take to a friends, chores to be done etc…. I’m surprised at how much I’ve procrastinated this week. […]

3 items to discuss

First off, enjoyed immensely my time with my daughter last weekend.  I was sad Monday evening after taking her to the airport.  It takes a few days to get back to the routine of life.  That said, I’m forever grateful for Emily’s expert advice with my cards.  She works at Northwest Art and Frame (one […]

keep moving

Mark and I had a discussion this morning about how important it is to wake up each day and start moving in the direction you want to go.  It doesn’t take a whole lot of effort, you don’t make it a big deal…you just start moving…walking towards your goal/dream/vision.  As is so often quoted, “It’s […]

self publishing and branding

I attended a panel series last night at the Commonwealth Club on self-publishing.  Though this was geared to the book world, I felt it appropriate for cards and other types of publishing.  I left pumped about all the resources and opportunities that appear to be out there in the world (and mostly on the web). […]

meeting the people you need to know

The Universe does provide!!  Even as I’ve been moving forward in getting my cards ready to publish, I’ve been a bit concerned about all the details I know I’ll have to deal with once I get this company up and running.  My gifts do not include organizational skills or bookkeeping or being detailed about processes. […]

making progress

Thank goodness for Sarah!  I had another “tutoring” session with her today.  Feeling like I’m learning to master the complexity of InDesign and Photoshop.  At least the little bit I need to know to pull in a TIFF image, resize it, add text boxes, take to Photoshop to change to CMYK color, check image size, […]
