Mid month check in

April 16, 2010

Its going to be a busy weekend, no question about that. Tidying up I found the suntan lotion… and its going to be warm out at Hemet for the Ramona Pageant.

As for the rest of the list it looks much better… perhaps I was a bit too ambitious?!

make 20 bracelets – I made 12 in the end (and sold one!)

make stud earrings – I made one more pair & 3 drop earrings (see below)

rings??? – I ordered sterling silver ring blanks, and have made 4 rings and I love them.

business cards – hopefully I’ll have enough for the weekend.

make postcards – no time but I do have postcards.

collect Red Dirt poster/postcards distribute – 100%

taxes – 100%

Spring clean (urgent) 75% – looks better, filled up the bins this week..

plant out the veggies – Up to Geraint at this point!

Studios space – I know Geraint and Will went up there at the weekend

silk tie purses – no new ones sob sob but there are few to finish.

Write a demo bio for the RAA newsletter – wrote a “formula” – still need to do mine
