goals and dreams, a recap

about a year and a half ago, i posted about my goals and dreams for linwood avenue. i thought it would be a good thing to revisit them to see where i stand. i try to be a very motivated person, and to actually put one foot in front of the other when i put my mind to something. looking back over the list lets me know where i have made strides and where i need to devote more time. so here goes...

small goals:
  • be published in a national magazine by the end of the year  - yay for artful blogging!
  • create a calendar with my botanical drawings and find a publisher for it. month to month in flowers, but with a modern, youthful twist - 6 more months to draw
  • purchase linwood avenue embroidered labels for my products regardless of cost - loving these!
  • become a much better product photographer - photos aren't yet where i want them to be, but i'm getting there.
  • keep my etsy shop update regularly - working on this
  • save money to attend an art retreat - art and soul portland

big goals:
  • enter the world of licensing. would love to design and reproduce vintage inspired lamps
  • expand linwood avenue so it overshadows my graphic design business - not yet, but it is about half/half right now which is great!

blog goals:

  • have my blog become a place of creative inspiration for readers  - i think adding more tutorials has helped this.
  • build my blog followers - thank you once again artful bloggging!
  • have a larger tutorial section - my partnership with may arts has contributed greatly to this section. 

that's it for now. i feel good about what i have accomplished and some of the items are almost there. overall, i really, really need to devote more time to etsy because i think that will overflow into some of the other goals. and i really want to finish the botanical calendar because i think i will feel such a sense of accomplishment after it is done. don't you love how freely you can breath after you have finished something that has been hanging around for a long time?


  1. Wow, I so need to do this. I am a goal maker like crazy but never stop to look at what I have actually accomplished. Kudos to you for checking off a lot on your list!

  2. Good job accomplishing so many of your goals Tiffin! My goal is to open my etsy shop next week. So excited!


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. i love reading each and every one and am thrilled you decided to visit linwood avenue!
