yay for order tracking

yesterday, i received one of the two orders i placed for the upcoming custom project and the other one is in anchorage as of 6:21am today!!! i can't wait!! i figured out the first set of measurements for the album yesterday.

i've been thinking a lot about how to expand my small business. i have a plan: enter more shows, do a few solo exhibits (through first fridays), get the "made in alaska" certification, take sample pieces to stores to sell my product (& take orders), infiltrate every store i can in alaska, expand to the lower 48 (starting with seattle), and start my quest for world domination. okay, maybe not the last one...maybe. anyhow, that is my general plan, which i will supplement with custom orders and letterpress printing (invitations, business cards, broadsides, artist books, etc). the key is to make (not find) the time for all of this art madness. i know i haven't spent as much time in the studio as i should. sometimes there isn't enough time in the day to do everything i want. know what the answer is? more coffee & less sleep!
