Here comes 2009

2009

2009 is here.

I don’t want to make a new years resolution because nobody ever keeps them, but I’m going to make a list of things I would like to do in 2009: (not in any particular order)

  • get the screenprinting business off the ground, make lots of bad ass shirts, and open an e-commerce website store so i can sell the goods
  • go to the west coast, or on a fancy vacation to somewhere i’ve never been before
  • get another really great paying freelance job, last year i did a children’s book, it was a LOT of work, but it was fantastic, and well paid
  • buy a house (haha, this one probably def won’t happen)
  • make some stuffed animals or clothes, things i’ve wanted to do for a long time, but just don’t put aside any time to do them.
  • put up my own website, which i’ve been working on occasionally since i got out of school 2 years ago.
  • update my adventures of mrs. pacman blog a lot more (https://pactastic.wordpress.com/)
  • set aside time for me and paul to go out and take photographs, i really like doing that and i think he does too.
  • finish well… i should say start photoshopping my wedding photos and giving them out to people.
  • finish my wedding scrapbook
  • submit photographs and illustrations to istockphoto.com
