These past two weeks have been quite productive! So many things happening right now that I haven’t had a moment to just sit down and process everything. I guess that’s what I’m going to do right now, so why not join me?
I actually somehow published more posts than I planned on here, including:
I signed with a new ad network the other day so I am excited to see how that goes, and I’ve been revamping my YouTube channel to include more lifestyle/how-to type posts. Go subscribe if you want to stay updated!
I’ve also been diligently working on my soon-to-be-launched course, Get Noticed. All of the details can be found in the last link above and if you haven’t yet, you can sign up for early access here. I have to admit, I’m a little nervous. I keep going back and making adjustments or adding things to the site, so I’m not sure if it will ever feel completely done. Regardless, I’ll be opening enrollments next week so stay tuned! People have asked me if it will be a paid course, and yes it will be as it’s part of my work related projects and packed with value.
Behind the scenes, I’ve been making piles of messes with boxes as pieces of new furniture arrive for my “library room” makeover. I was lucky enough to get to work with one of my favourite decor stores for this project and will be sharing the final finished design on here once it’s complete! You’ll probably see bits and pieces of it in some blog photos until then.
I’ve also been doing those dreaded taxes, which is kind of a big job and I’m surprised at how quickly I’ve managed to get them together this year. People have asked me to do a post about taxes for bloggers, but being Canadian I’m not sure how much it would help since us Canadian bloggers seem a little more sparse than US ones. Plus, I’m definitely not an expert and usually have to end up Googling certain things myself.
We spent Easter weekend with a couple friends who visited and then traveled to see my family. I received a pretty amazing package from Ferrero Rocher filled with chocolate and just about died inside because they are my fave! Let’s just say I’ve been working out a little harder lately.
On the work front, there have been a bunch of developments. For those that don’t know, my “work” portion of my life consists of the creative projects I am involved in aside from this blog.
I signed a deal with a manufacturer to sell Wonder Forest designed things, like bedding, textiles, wall decor, pet accessories and more. I like to see this as an extension of my case line, and am so so so excited about the opportunity. This has been one of my goals since last year so I am really thrilled to see it happening. Wonder Forest is also in the process of becoming a trademark, yay!
If you guys read my post about the cat shelter, you’ll know I also spent a little time designing a few simple shirts to help the cause. I would really love it if you helped to spread the word. I stopped in there the other day and had my heart melt for a sweet kitten I befriended. I wish I could just take them all home!
I think that’s about all I wanted to update you guys on this week! It seems like there was more, but that’s probably because I’ve just been so occupied with the course, fundraiser, contracts, taxes, and day to day stuff. Tell me, what did you get up to this week? What did you accomplish?
