Previous Accomplishments, Future Goals

Thanks to the wonderful and inspirational San Smith and her posts on creating visual lists, I got the idea to do a year in review of 2009 and goals for the coming year.   Here's what I came up with - what do you think?

2009 Accomplishments - YAY ME!
  1. broadened network and skelekitty fan-base
  2. skelekitty.com (up and running)!
  3. improved art techniques with practice
  4. gallery shows outside of Sacramento and California
  5. taught first classes (mixed-media classes at Santa Clarita Craft Lab)
  6. helped build Abby's confidence (OK, so its not really a career accomplishment, but if you'd met this dog when we found her, you'd agree that this is worth noting)
  7. Artfire.com shop open (Skelekitty)
  8. accepted commissions (from friends)
  9. accepted custom orders (from anyone)
  10. took portrait class

GOALS (blank page on the right is for mid-year evaluation & reassessment)

What are YOUR accomplishments and goals?


  1. hmm. I am now inspired to do the same!

    Also, I'd like to know what you think of Artfire.


  2. Lady E,

    I LOVE Artfire! I've all but closed my Etsy stores and won't be listing over there any more. If I had to pick a single reason to switch, it would be because shoppers don't need an account to purchase from my Artfire shop. A close second would be that verified members can use the shopping cart feature on any website/blog.
