Day 30

I finally got the recalcitrant printers working again and started producing the promotional materials for the Dalmatian Rescue Valentines Day fundraiser. If you live in Dallas, be sure to stop by Unleashed on either February 6 or February 13 and let us take a heart warming portrait of your dog. I'm not surprised that people love these pet picture fundraisers we do. The quality of the photos are fabulous and, at least to me, the prices are unbelievably low. If I charged these kind of prices to my commercial clients, I'd be out of business in a month. It's all for the dogs though. The entire production team gives away their time for these events and although we are tired at the end of the day, we have a lot of fun too.

Thursdays are website update days for several of my clients. Luckily, the workload wasn't that heavy today, so I had time to finish the Valentines Day posters too. Dot is usually the model when I design posters and marketing materials for Dalmatian Rescue. Dash won't stay in one place long enough for me to take a picture.

Keeping the blog current is taking me a bit longer than I thought. I don't know why I'm surprised. Absolutely everything takes me a bit longer than I think it should. In theory, writing something everyday will impose a bit of discipline on my life and help keep my brain from turning to mush. It certainly beats doing Sudoku puzzles anyway. I wish I could continue to work in the slow meticulous way I always have, but still get things done faster. It's probably not going to happen. I don't believe in, or even understand, the whole concept of multi-tasking. Multi-tasking to me is just doing a lot of stuff at once in a non-focused, half-assed way.

So here I am, continuing to do one thing at a time and never getting finished. Finished or not, I'm certainly going to take a break and watch the premier of Project Runway Season 7 tonight. I've gotten totally hooked on that show.
