My goals for August (my birthday month!) are numerous! So I thought i’d share what my plans are as i’m feeling a little more inspired this month to make things which in turn means having things I can share.
Bendy and the Ink Machine Party
My son’s birthday party was Bendy themed. If your not familar with this video game, its somewhat new but nothing existed in terms of party supplies and such, so I had to make my own. So i have a draft started on that where I’ll also include some printable files you can download.
Bendy and the Ink Machine Plushy
I’ve already started this and I’d like to share how I made the pattern (on computer) that I think could be utilized for creating other plushys from cartoon characters no patterns exist for. I have the pieces cut out already out of black and white minky so it will be soft and snuggly (as snuggly as a little 1930’s cartoon style devilish character can be XD ) I think this could be something I’ll be really proud of..but here’s to hoping.
Lifestock.co – My photography blog
I mainly have been working on my other website LifeStock.co. I finally was able to finish the design on my photography blog I have residing over on my other website www.lifestock.co. I think what has been taking up most of my creative time (outside of work) is thinking about creating some products using my photography that people will be able to purchase in the lifestock shop section of the website. I’m planning on posters, totes, mugs, phone cases, beach blankets, and possibly shirts that I hope everyone will love! I’ll share my designs here in the next few weeks that will be available for purchase in September. New ventures are exciting!
I love quotes…so I’ll leave you with some quotes on ‘planning’ that I like:
- “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” ― Benjamin Franklin
- “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
- “Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here.” — Donald J. Trump
- “Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” — Gloria Steinem
