June Goals Follow-Up (How'd I Do?)

1. Finish sprucing up the current designs in my Etsy shop.
Um... I made a lot of NEW designs. Guess I need to work on spring cleaning a little more. It's just so much more interesting to make new things than to fix old things. ;P

2. Add 5 new blog template designs to my shop.
Yup! Definitely did this and more.

3. Bid on 5 "real" design jobs.
Let's see... I bid on 3 jobs. Didn't get any of them. But at least I put myself through the process of inducing nervousness into the pit of my stomach. This'll get easier, right?

4. Actually get out of the house for a walk at least 3 times a week.
Three times a week? Did I say that? I think I made it out three times total. Maybe. I need to work on that.

5. Remember to shower at least every other day.
Yup, did pretty good on this one. I even did some laundry too so I had clean clothes to wear. ;)

6. Knit 3 new items for my knitting shop.
I got one hat made. Does that count? Also I started crocheting something that shall remain nameless because I might be giving it to someone who is pregnant and reads this blog and may or may not be related to me.

7. Photograph said items & actually get them into my shop, ready to sell.
Yup, got the ONE item photographed and into my shop. It was tough, but someone's gotta do it.

8. Get my design portfolio online.
Oh yeah. Forgot about this one. Anyone have any suggestions how to do this?

9. Finish one of the many books that I'm currently reading.
Finish one? Uh-oh. I think I started about three more... Hmm... Guess I went backwards on this one. ;P

10. Earn at least $200 from my various shops / design jobs.
Hmmm... well... I made $13. That's a start right? That's almost $200.


  1. I really like how you set goals and follow up.... I should do this! Happy Friday. ~Stephanie

  2. I love how you follow up with your goals, even if you don't accomplish everything it's great to see the progress!!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
