Well... it's September 1st so I'm forcing myself to write an update on the creative project goals I laid out last month. I've said in the past that I often have so many ideas and interests that I end up spreading too much of myself around instead of focusing on a single thing (except for when it comes to running, it's pretty clear I don't have the same problem here.) Anyway, this past month instead of concentrating on ONE project to complete, I got overly excited and started a handful of them- none of which are finished.

Classic conundrum, I know. So what have I been working on?

1. I'm farthest along with a t-shirt printing idea that I've been thinking about for quite a while. I completed my initial design and am in the process of  having some screens made so I can print shirts at the Milwaukee Makerspace. I'm really excited about these and am thinking about selling some if there is any interest after I print my own.

2. I've also revisited my greeting card project that I started a couple of years ago with some of Juliana's drawings. This time though I'm manipulating some photographs I've taken and am going to print new sets of cards using these images. Do I have the images selected yes? Have I printed anything. No.

3. Last, I learned one of my favorite Mountain Goats songs on the guitar. It's not a difficult song but I've been meaning to do it forever. I had plans to record in in Garage Band but... you know. Argh...

Yeah. So what's my goal for September then? Complete at least one of these ideas and more importantly DO NOT START a new project.

We'll see how it all shakes out.
