this week has felt like a vacation compared to the past couple of months. still been busy, but it's been a blast to actually have time to design new products (like my ring above - you likey?!), to "waste" time on creating new products (anything sewing machine-related does not give me instant gratification is one way of putting it), taking new product photos and stocking them up in the shop - along with the normal week's happenings.
also i got myself a big ole notebook specifically for brainstorming purposes. while at CE, one of the speakers (becky higgins, i think it was) encouraged us with this piece of advice:
"write down all of your ideas in one big notebook, so you can make more room up here [pointing to her head] for even more ideas"
simple enough but well-stated. i already had a little anthro planner and a ton of loose leaf papers and post it notes that was doing that very job for me. but i figured i should organize it up a bit by having one central location to creatively puke on. i'm keeping the planner for anything schedule related (giveaways, sponsorships, etc) but then using this larger notebook (found it at a Borders on sale) to keep things as in check as possible. we'll see how this goes!
