You did see this design a couple weeks ago when I ran my first Facebook ad.  But I forgot to number it so I’m doing that now.  This weekend I’m going to be doing a couple short posts of things posted before that didn’t get a number so that i get caught to where I am in my daily self-challenge.

I also realize I may have to change the parameters of the challenge.  I was only going to count new designs in the daily design but I am finding that since I may have to tweak designs, like reworking a story, it takes a little time.  So I’m going to have to count redesigns.  Also if I like a design (like my mom’s kimono flowers”, I am going to put it on more stuff so while the main part of the design (the flowers) doesn’t have to be redone, on each thing I put it on, it will have to be resize to suit the product.  Images may have to be shifted in tone from bright to pastel depending on what product.  For example on a coffee mug, bright is good but on a post-it, pastel is good.  This is not really brainwork but more like techwork especially the resizing but it takes time.  So putting it on one new product doesn’t count for a design day but maybe on five new products?  I have to think about this.

I have more than one blog.  I wish it was as easy to clone myself to do different design work.  I have so many ideas.  I’m into Asian American history so I’d like to do a series with vintage (76 years old or more) Asian American art or writing to celebrate those who came in the past.  I want to do Arizona with my own photography — especially morphing my pics.  I’d love to do a pet series as well as t-shirts with funny or cool quotes.  Ideas keep popping into my head.  I need to focus.  Maybe I should refocus my challenge so that I focus on one thing for a month in my daily designs.  I was letting Zazzle’s 40% off sale drive my design choices because they were having a 40% on different items every few days but they stopped doing that.

I haven’t ordered an apron yet so there isn’t a review.  I’m not worried about the printing.  That’s one of the reasons I am thinking of just doing cool quotes for at least a week — I don’t have to order one of each to check it out.  Just printing text and a few colors should have any problems, right? Also I need a little time as being accepted into Amazon’s t-shirt program, I need to see how they’re set up.  I can put the quote t-shirts there to start.

      You’re lucky your dad cooks for you. I think food tastes better when someone else cooks it. Messy is alright as long as the food is good.

      Laughing, Brian, I just remembered you’re the awesome cat! I totally forgot. Your dad cooks for you? Don’t tell Pinkie and Midnight, my cats. Pinkie and Midnight think cooking is me ripping open the kibble package, lol. Although that can get a little missing if they tap my hand just when I’m ripping the package to hurry me up a bit.
