Enter September

Hmm... Only 7 blog posts for the month of August. When you're busy there are things you really have to put aside. But being busy on the right things is always good.

So aside from printing bloggers shirts, I've been designing a roll-up banner and a flyer for a memorial/leisure park located in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I've been working on the layout since the first week of August and still they are not approved. The client is being too meticulous and keeps adding unnecessary details. Like, he wanted to have a tiny logo placed before the company name everywhere it is mentioned in a paragraph. As if it could actually increase chances of sale. Anyways, I hope to get this project over with soon because I don't really enjoy designing print ads and there are other things to do.

I still have to design shirts for two motorcycle shops owned by friends. Also, remember my moto-industry shirt? I still have 15 pieces with me. I need to schedule a trip to Global City in Taguig and sell the shirts to riders who hang out there every Sunday morning. Really, after I sell all these shirts away I will not do the print-then-sell approach anymore.

Oh and I have to get my red bike repaired so I can sell it too and finally get a new big bike! I miss the long out-of-town rides!

I still haven't set up a photo studio here in this old house. There's just no space for it here. The DSLR camera and the lamps, lent to me by my sister and her husband, are still in their boxes lying on the floor. No space at home and no money to pay for rentable space. Paano na? The most ironic thing here is that my parents has a new and empty house in Cavite (just behind my brother's new house). They did offer me to set up my workspace there but I refused. I do not wish to write lengthy explanations about why I cannot have my business that far outside Metro Manila and I certainly do not wish to write an even longer explanation why they are still not moving into that house instead. But I am not out of hope. I will someday find a solution to this.

On the good side, I found sources of affordable custom made frames and printing services for the digital portrait paintings that I'm planning to start as a side business. I'm yet to look for box makers, make sample portraits and create an online store.

Well here's another month - the first of the "ber" months. As always, I hope to accomplish more.
