my monthly goals :: february
- zero inbox. i want to go to bed each night with zero messages in my business email inbox. (not even going to attempt to do the same for my personal account.) omhg has a good post on how to do this. so does elise. and for the record, just putting emails into a "follow up" folder and then letting that folder build up doesn't count.
- continue my sketch-a-day, journal-page-a-day and pattern-a-day streaks. i've only done 5 days of pattern-a-day so far, but i'm so psyched. i'm already bursting with pattern ideas just from doing it 5 days in a row. one day this week i designed part of a collection. i was on a roll! i really need to build my portfolio to achieve my goals of getting my work licensed and this will be a really fun way to do it. alma and melanie are doing a 365 patterns challenge and are inviting people to post along with them. i'm not sure i'll be posting. sometimes creating a design is challenge enough. i've had so much fun doing my sketch a day and i look forward to doing another video in the near future.
- continue my daily exercise and add a strength element. i've promised you a post about this and it will come. for now, keep in mind that i am taking baby steps, so i am just going to add 1 minute of a strength exercise to my daily routine. (i'm thinking wall squats or lunges with arm weights)
- paint more. i haven't painted as much as i'd like so far in 2013. my hands are literally getting twitchy! i need it for my soul.
