 This week has been almost entirely focused on my business. I have watched an amazing number of videos and webinars about various aspects of my business. I have spent hours and hours thinking, planning, and figuring things out. Maybe if I had done this in the beginning I wouldn't have to be doing it now. But, it is what it is. I'm determined to figure this whole social media thing out and there is no stopping me. 

I will say that I have been the tiniest bit sidetracked. One of the seminars I watched this week was focused around planners and using them. I got some really good ideas about using my planner, organizing my planner, and generally getting back into the planner game. I've let that fall off the last few months because of complete overwhelm and I need to get back into it. So I've incorporated some bullet journaling into the one I have now - boxes and a key for various things. I've also incorporated a Top Three each day. I've tried that before but never really stuck with it. I have said to myself a number of times that I don't have a top three. Well, the truth is I do. There are things I want to do each day and I just need to start writing them down in my planner. I'm putting the things I want to get done that day and I'm prioritizing a few of them. Others are just on a constantly moving list of things to do. Each one will eventually become important, but for now they are just things I want to do. It's a work in progress. I hope to have the habit established by the time I return to school so that I can utilize my newfound planning skills to keep things straight at school. 

Yesterday I got my 49er cups. I am calling them that because they are red with gold underlay. Very excited about them and already have a few designs ready to engrave. I'm going to do 3 or 4 and them post them all on my Etsy store. I'm also thinking of posting in some 49er groups. We'll see. I can post in the groups and direct them to my stores. Again, we'll see. 

I will be working on those cups today and I need to do some laundry and such. Otherwise I think I'm going to paint earrings and resin them. I also want to try resin based paint for my dominoes - might work on that. And clean up my board up there. What a mess. Maybe also work on cleaning up some other parts of this room. I don't know. We shall see. 

Okay, have to go walk the Mavster. He's getting restless.
