The Meetup – April/May

This year feels like it is flying by!  It is getting very pretty and sunny here in Chicago – time for the May update at The Meetup

For April here’s the score-

* Finish up invitations pkg for a communion Done (check em out here)

* Design Bday card (WIP – so sort of!)

* Design Baby Congrats / shower cards Done

* Start gardening for spring (fun goal!) Done.  More pix to come, yeah for warm weather and sunlight!

For May, I will be traveling quite a bit for my FT gig, so things will be a little light around here this month, but we’ll see what we can come up with!

* Check out some calligraphy books to learn on my own until I can find a class!

*Finish up B-day card ideas

*Organize inventory of supplies & setup work space

*Take lots of pix while traveling /gardening for the blog (easy & fun!)

How was April?  I hope everyone had a great month and is ready for the beautiful spring weather & feeling happy and motivated!

The Meetup March/April

Little late, but welcome to April! Time for an update on The Meetup

For March here’s my roundup –

Finish Bakery class & put some of this great knowledge to use. Done, I really liked the Bakery class, and it was great to get everything all organized at once and have a direction to go in!  I’m very excited for whats to come!

Post some DIY projects. <– meh. Didn’t do this, but its a to be continued…

Coach a friend on starting a blog / biz cards. (this is a fun goal!) Done!

I’m glad I kept it simple while the Bakery class was going so I could focus on that.  Now its April, and on to some new goals -its going to be a light month as I figure a few things out behind the scenes, but here’s what I’ve got so far!

* Finish up invitations pkg for a communion

* Design Bday card

* Design Baby Congrats / shower cards

* Start gardening for spring (fun goal!)

(Here’s a little teaser of the detail from the communion invite been working on)

The Meetup Feb/March

It’s that time again!  March, wow, you got here quick.  I feel like February just flew by, especially with Bakery’s Half Dozen e-class it has been a busy month with lots of behind the scenes stuff getting done.  I can hardly believe that it is Week 5 in the e-class…

So, the recap / layout for March

For February goals –

*Bakery’s Half-Dozen class awesome, on Week 5 and I feel like I’ve gotten SO SO much done.  Highly recommend it!

*Custom communion invitation / thank you cards – done, sending out paper proofs this week!

*Continue general 2010 goals (Cooking/Baking, Networking, DIY) – done/working on it. Attending some fun Chicago events & meeting lots of new people!

Kind of a short list, but with the Bakery class, it was necessary. March will be another short list month, but I’m pushing to finish up the behind the scenes stuff (biz plan, advertising ideas, press/media kits, etc)!

For March –

Finish Bakery class & put some of this great knowledge to use.

Post some DIY projects.

Coach a friend on starting a blog / biz cards. (this is a fun goal!)

How did everyone do for Feb? Hope it was a great (short) month!

The Meetup Jan/Feb

Hard to believe it is the start of February already!  Time for the Meetup!

Last month I did a general 2010 goals list, so there’s not really a big recap, but here’s my update:

*Learning to cook better – successful work in progress, pumpkin muffins, sweet potato soup, brownies = yum!

*Networking – went to indiewed!  (info to be posted soon)

*Math – checking out some free Online courses

*Making more things and procrastinating less with the DIY house stuff – meh. ongoing.  Took down some ugly paneling in the basement & prepping to redo the walls/flooring sometime soon 🙂

For February goals –

*Bakery’s Half-Dozen class – I’ve noticed a few fellow Meetup people will be participating – yeah!! can’t wait for the class to start!!  I’m going kind of light on my actual goals so I can focus on the class!

*Custom communion invitation / thank you cards

*Continue general 2010 goals (Cooking/Baking, Networking, DIY) and getting better at posting about it!

How did everyone do for January?  Hope it was a great month & start to the year!!  Check out Athena Designs to learn more about the Meetup!
