It's Time for the March Meetup!


Maya Deren from Meshes from the Afternoon (1943)




 Wow, I don't believe it's March already...

I must say, I am so ready for Spring! I've been feeling pretty cooped up in my house lately and after having over a month of construction around my house and soon in it, I will be happy to start getting out more...

Here's my business goals for Bluehour Studio in March.
  1. I have 2 Custom Portraits in the works. I need to get them both done ASAP.
  2. Add a few more samples for the Custom Portraits, perhaps me as a Victorian Lady?
  3. Get myself out there. This month my Etsy shop will be on Papernstitch starting March 5th. For those of you that do promotion for your artwork, which sites work best?
  4. Find more places to show my stuff each month. 
  5. Finish up my mini-book I started last year. I'm so close to finishing it but never got it done...
  6. Finish the new portraits I've been working on. Get them up on the site.
  7. Write all the mini-bio's on for each of my Victorian characters, make them into cards.
  8. Get back to Illustration Friday.
  9. Get back to exercising...
  10. and meditation...basically take better care of myself.
  11. Start working on some Editorial pieces.
  12. Design postcards to send to publishers.
  13. Take another class at San Francisco Center for the Book.
  14. Read "The Money Book" by Joseph D'Agnese & Denise Keirnan. Learn it, live it... 
  15. Finish my Victorian Portrait Necklaces, get them up on Etsy.
  16. Work on that Balance finding thing.
Well, that seems like a good start...wish me luck and a bolt of energy to get this done this month!

 What will your month hold?
 

What is the Meetup thing, you ask? It is a group of creatives that encourage each other each month to make and complete their goals. Join us...it is an amazing to watch the progress of others and yourself...

Hi Debbie, love your illustrations, Jasper is great. Sounds like you have some great things going on for March. The book sounds interesting. I have yet to read the money book, I took it out of the library around Nov - bad timing I couldn't get around to reading it. Thanks for the reminder to try again! I wish you a productive month with some time for self care thrown in. Good luck with papernstich I am interested in how that goes.

That is a super busy March! Good luck with all of your goals and enjoy the Money Book, I've used it more than once to get myself back on track!

The Money Book! It's back on the table in front of the couch in my studio, and I have given myself the task of a chapter a day! I hope March is super wonderful for you, and good luck with PapernStitch! Let us know how that goes, and wishes for good productivity on all the rest of your list!

Hello Debbie,
I wish you the best in all your goals! I wonder how much progress you have made. I kinda like to go back in the middle of the month and see how behind I am to make adjustments.
Like your portraits a lot!

Although I'm waaaay late, I wanted to pop in and say hi! March came in and went out like a lion, didn't it? I hope you were able to kick it into high gear! :-)
