New Week/New Goals!

This weekend was filled with adventures with old friends, going to the movies, and tasting beer. The movie we saw was Horrible Bosses, which totally brought me back to the cubicle days.  I have had quite a few completely horrible bosses and I knew I was in trouble if they invited me into their office and told me to close the door behind me.  The movie was so hilarious and would recommend it for the perfect date night movie.  I am still dieing to see the new HP (Harry Potter duh) but the movie was sold out all over the place here! Don't spoil it!   
 This week I have to really buckle down and take care all of my goals.  I totally got behind last week and really need to be motivated all week long.
1.  88 Strong Show- I am participating in the 88 Strong Show at the Goodfoot.  I have to complete 8 paintings for the show and haven't started yet.  The show is the Last Thursday in September.  I am still working on what sort of theme I want for my paintings for the show.
2.  List a few etsy prints.  I have been hard at work making the perfect prints of some of my artwork and will have them listed on etsy this week.  I am so excited to re-open my etsy shop and have so many plans for the shop to come.
3.  I am working on curating the Siren Nation Show Paint Your Art Out,This is only my 2nd time organizing anything like this and I am so greatfull to be apart of this event. We have the venue booked for August 18th and have an open call to artists still open and the artists that want to participate are really amazing. 
4.  I recently bought a juicer and promised myself I am going to juice for breakfast for 30 days.  It's like eating a salad for breakfast in a cup.   Anyone juice? Doesn't juicing sound horrible? Almost like a drug.
5.  Bug the hubs to update my website.  My hubs is the brain behind my website and usually requires heavy bribes in order to do anything for my website.  Maybe I will make him his favorite dinner- clams and fresh pasta :) gets him every time.!
6.  Give the puggers a bath and beauty treatments. It's there favorite thing ever.  They get so excited for their beauty time- they squeal and twirl in excitement.  I am going to attempt to take pictures but they are so quick.  I am slow photographer! I have also thinking about painting their puppy nails- I don't know if they would sit still long enough for me to do it.
7.  Paint as much as I can!
 
Happy Monday! Hopefully the production and motivation fairy will be on my side this week! What are your goals this week?

Glad to hear Horrible Bosses was good. I think the boy and I will go see that for date night. I'm also dying to see HP but he won't go, hah. I'll have to find a girlfriend for that.

Your puppies and their beauty treatments sound so cute! I need to give my pup a bath. She did lot's of swimming in the ocean this weekend and now smells like a fish. Blech .

How did you like the beer fest? We had a great time.

I love your list for the week. I need to get motivated to get some things done this week. Time is flying by right now and I feel like I can't keep up!

Chelle Lynn said...

So, I just wanted to say that your blog is super cute, PLUS I'm excited to read what a fellow painter has to say about work, life, etc. Maybe one day I'll get to quit the day job, too. :)

PS- Harry Potter is awesome, you will not be disappointed!

Mo Pie, Please said...

Good luck for a productive week ahead of you!

I have heard such great things about juicing and have really wanted to get a juicer and do it! Let me know how it goes! Have a great week!

I'm behind, too, but not on anything remotely fun like painting!! Have fun with your pups. We have to do some grooming as well, but they HATE it. Which is why I am not calling it beauty time. I will look un-beautiful by the end.

Thanks for the comment, which led me to your lovely blog! I will keep the movie recommendation on my mind, I was a tad on the fence (even though I rarely see them in the theaters).

p.s. Your pugs are just as adorable. Gotta love those faces!

Glad to hear Horrible Bosses was good. I can't wait to see it. I have a feeling I'll be able to relate due to some bad bosses I've had!
I hope you get everything done that you want to!
