February Goals Meetup

Meetup  large

Well, I sure have been busy this month! I made some art, completing 2 commission quilts this month. I did a lot in the name of networking/publicity, sending off 2 magazine article proposals, finished up my studio submission, sent off 2 interviews (one published here and the other one I sent out an hour ago!), plus I put together a list of Moms PLUS bloggers to watch that got some attention from some Problogger readers. I got some dyeing done, for some overdue prizes, as well as a scarf I donated for Craft Hope Haiti. JUST under the wire, I finally got a bag made for my Christmas present laptop (pix tomorrow).

  1. congrats on your goals and your crazy organizational percentage-ness 🙂 I fell apart at the end of January for a bit, but I’m starting February right with my own goals list posted too 🙂

  2. Looks like fun with another day off school for the boys and rehearsals for honor bands. Hope Liam made orchestra.

  3. wow, you did a great job in jan! i love how clearly you’ve got everything listed and the %s – keeps things motivated, even if its not 100% yet! – good luck for feb!!

  4. Little Wallet tutorial! Sounds cool. I am thinking over my February goals…. I made good progress in January and got some things decided … I’m going to make up a quilt pattern for sale over at my blog, and I know which quilt now!

  5. Candy, you are a mad woman. I always find your posts to be so inspiring. Your site is looking fantastic. It reflects your work perfectly. I’m very impressed the your marketing prowess. Congratulations on a terrific month. I’m going to get to work so you don’t have to kick my a$$ on March 1. Happy Monday! Angie

  6. Congratulations on completing so much! I love your method of a monthly goals checklist, I’m thinking maybe I’d better employ this myself. 🙂 It’s a busy schedule you have for February, good luck!

  7. i love your organization – thanks for sharing it. im sure you not only get so much more done but you can look back at all youve accomplished and actually feel a sense of … well… accomplishment!!

  8. Wow Candy, your list never ceases to impress me! It’s most inspiring! Hope your february is a kick ass month – I can’t wait to be done with the taxes, and I didn’t even put it on my list. Looking forward to seeing the birdhouses that are on your list….

  9. way to go candy! now i’m curious about the “mystery submissions” category, would like to know what that is all about 😉

  10. I love your spreadsheet type chart for your list of goals.. very organized. Yeah, I’m dreading taxes but I rather get them done than wait until April & stress myself out even more lol. Good luck on your goals `=O)

  11. I’m also curious about the Little Wallet tutorial. Can’t wait to see that. I’m always amazed at how much you accomplish each month and your organizational skills. I was never able to juggle my business very well with a 9 to 5, so I really am in awe of you! Good luck with your February and keeping up with your Google Reader 🙂

  12. Awesome goals and I love seeing how you’re accomplishing everything so quickly! I should write my goals down so that I’m forced to check them off! But I don’t want that guilty feeling when I haven’t finished them… 🙁
