Here we are again, the end of another month.
September has been pretty hot still here, good thing I had tons to do indoors!
I feel like I always have 18 million things going on, and when I list it all out, I’m not far off! Work day job, shoot stuff, edit stuff, post stuff, market stuff, learn stuff, home- man and doggie stuff, friend stuff, and you know, ALL the STUFF!
This month started with a hurricane! Yeah, Dorian came right up our coast, and Chris’ sister and her husband came to stay with us again, we always have fun, just tried to be positive. They stayed 3 days, and were cleared to go home. No damage to their home thank goodness!
I did a couple of shoots; a hairstyling tools shoot (finally!), and a big Rattan & textures shoot I had been thinking of for weeks.
Thing is with my shoots, I use a day off to shoot, and then I upload them and they wait until I have time to edit. Sometimes they sit for a couple of months, unless there is something I really want to get out.
The rattan and texture (not official name) will be moved to the front because it’s really Fall feeling, but the hair shoot, and older shoots will get pushed.
I also have a crochet + crafty type shoot to edit, and that will be good for the Fall/Winter months.
Editing takes hours, and while I know I’m supposed to be getting Fall bundles out in July/Aug I am not there yet timing wise, so I do my best, and hopefully people will still need photos during the season.
I won a free call with a designer to go over my website, branding, etc, and she really helped me get focused on productivity. I found out about and have started using the Trello App! Wow! It’s so cool and perfect for me due to it’s visual nature! I tried ClickUp as well, and came back to Trello. It works really well for me. Let me know if you’ve tried it or use it! Or if you like something better. Or ask me about it.
The biggest thing that happened this month (quite literally) was the release of my Artists Palette Bundle! YAY!
This baby is huge! There are 47 photos including 26 paper mockups that are just perfect for watercolorists, painters, and stationery designers, but many creative types can use this bundle and seriously get months worth of use!
There is also a smaller, mockup only companion,
In other news,
Chris had to serve on a Jury for 2 weeks! 😳 It was a big case involving a local water treatment plant and a 7 million dollar award.
I had some more photos taken of me for my sites, and when I get them, I’ll share. 😊
I’ve been test driving cars. I have been researching and looking for months. It’s time. I’ll keep you posted. 🚙
Lastly, I went to see the Downton Abbey movie! ok, you guys, I know you’re gonna laugh, but I haven’t been to the movies in like 3 years! lol
They have recliners!!! hahaha I know you know, but that is a pretty cool feature. I loved the Downton series, and I loved the movie too. Have you seen it?
OK, I have to go, it’s College Gameday!! Go Gamecocks!
