Shana Tova art – new year resolution
I made a big mistake this year. One that I wrote down to myself to never do again. Or at least, I can make a new year resolution. After all, with a new Jewish year starting in about 20 minutes, I can afford making some resolutions, right?
What did I do wrong? well, many things. But the one I am talking about is that I promised a friend to upload my Rosh Hashanah art to my Zazzle store so she can get some Shana Tova cards, and I didn’t do it…
When selling your art online, or selling any product, you really have to be prepared way before the season. I hear now people talking about making their art and promotions ready for the holidays season. So I should have done the Shana Tova cards way back, probably 3-4 months ago.
Well, my only excuse is that I was busy. I started a new day job. My kids were on summer vacation. I travelled to Israel. But the bottom line is, that I just made a mistake.
So, my resolution for the new year, is to prepare myself ahead. Make a calendar with enough time ahead for every project I plan to do. So for the Hanukkah cards, I should start already, and that will be my priority immediately after the holiday. Not Hanukkah holiday! But this upcoming holiday (which starts in about 15 minutes now….)
OK, so I wrote down my resolution, and now I can’t back off! It is another way to make myself do things…
And with this, I really have to finish up and get ready for the holiday.
So I would like to wish you all a wonderful, sweet new year! Shana Tova Umetuka for all my family, friends, subscribers, readers, guests, and anyone out there.
And lets make some art!
