I’ve mentioned this before, and I’m sure I’ll mention it again, but I believe celebrating our small achievements is a huge part of remaining motivated. One way we can celebrate small achievements is by simply acknowledging them as just that – achievements. As a way to practice what I preach, every month I’m going to take a monthly tally of what I’ve accomplished from the previous month and set some small goals for the coming weeks.

In November 2013, I

  1. Started prep for wholesale by calculating that actual cost of making all of my items
  2. Reinvested in my shop by getting an easier camera for quick product shots
  3. Took Decor8’s blogging course, Blogging Your Way
  4. Took a Skillshare class, The First Steps of Hand-Lettering: Concept to Sketch (sign up through this link to get $10 off your first skillshare class if you’ve never taken one before: http://skl.sh/16j8qUf)
  5. Drew up to my 82nd #LogaCat

In December 2013, I will

  1. Sell at Bust Craftacular for the second year in a row – YAY
  2. Set up my wholesale linesheet
  3. Make Christmas gifts for my nieces and aunt
  4. Make sticker packs for my shop
  5. Start a Dogs of Etsy magnet project, similar to my Cats of Etsy project
