The days have been flying by here in the land of Orange Twist and sometimes I feel like I’m standing still while they do. In just about two months I’ll be debuting my line of cards at the National Stationery Show and lordy, the amount of work still to do!
Certainly I’ve already done a lot in six weeks since paying my third of the booth fee for the NSS and have created the structure for all the other things I want to accomplish before arriving in New York. Lists are lame, but time is short, so here’s an abbreviated list of what’s been happening: I’ve researched, ordered, and received my new press. I’ve obtained a paper cutter. I’ve designed half my new collection and burned screens for a third of the new designs. I’ve enlisted an awesome designer to help me with my pulling my packaging together. I’ve increased the amount of drying space for printing thus increasing the amount of cards I can print at once. I’ve researched options for catalog printing. I’ve moved money around in order to pay for all this expansion. I’ve been keeping myself healthy by sticking to my stretching, walking, and icing schedule.
Today I need to print and review and revise my timeline and prioritize all the things that need to get done. Sometimes that’s the hardest for me just because I figure if I do some of the less important things first all the REALLY important things will still need to be done and more will end up being finished. Probably a recipe for disaster but my recipe nonetheless.
Let the prioritizing begin!
