Today, my head is in the clouds, and not because I’m dreaming, but because this stinking cold has taken a turn for the worst. Not too sure what to do with myself, so I’m going to start on my action plan of the day.
First move- cut out the labels I created yesterday and attach them to the raffia and start to make bundles of cards… although I may cut everything out now, then take the things into uni tomorrow and work on them there… not too sure!

I keep getting worried about it as I feel so near to the final product with the idea, but in all honesty I think I’m just nervous to actually go for it and print and make the final piece. That is another thing i’m worried about… the printing! Think I may do some test prints later, to get an idea and so that I feel a little more reassured. As great as working on a mac is… its nothing compared to having the product in your hands. And… at the end of the day, I am designing something that will be printed… so I should print!!

I’ll try to keep updates of how everything is going today. Here is the hand-written version of my never-ending To-Do list for today:
