Month at a Glance| April’s Creative Workflow

Hi friends and Happy April y’all!

Also Happy Monday! It’s creative work flow time. Which means it’s time to get organised and crush some goals! *woot!*

March is gone and cherry blossoms are kissing me ever so lightly! ^^  *hello~ waves happily*

hello April! Let’s crush some goals ♡

It’s yet another busy day of organisation, brain dumps and tattooing, today. As I shared last month, these monthly workflow posts are just my organising and (visually) seeing what I have set out before me for the month to keep me on my on task with my organising goals.

But before we start, let’s recap and see how I did from last month’s creative work flow~

My two top goals were my monthly tattoo round-up and joining a creative link-up. Check AND CHECK!

Now here’s more from my creative work flow last month …

Last month was a challenge! But I made it. *shamelessly pats self on the back* Before sharing April, though, here’s a quick look at last month and how I did ~

  • stick to my blogging schedule for March
  • schedule and plan for next month!
  • commit to growing my Instagram with new kawaii format (please check it out! constructive criticism welcomed)
  • get active with 2 link-ups (sticking with this monthly goals link-up & #PACCreativeChaos link-up for a while)
  • start a blog series, Soulful Sundays (I think I jumped out there too soon and may have to revisit this idea >.< )
  • create a closed DC KawaiiStyle community kawaii interests & enthusiasts (and it’s working!!!)
  • kawaii tattoo colouring book work (at least start is … sheesh!) (making a printable to share)
  • start outlining interactive Tattoo blog (THIS is gonna be a TON of work >>.<< )
  • bookings for April (private) #INKPLAY tattoo appointments (AND I updated my #INKPLAY site! 💣)
  • kawaii DC tumblr DIY (need to blog this)
  • Girl Scouts of America Central Maryland’s Girl Con (also need to blog this here & at DC KawaiiStyle)

✨ My Goals

I am a workaholic with a large to-do list and some times my goals have sub-goals and ripple effects. *tee hee* Blogging is a tool I will soon be able to use in a grand way so I have a lot to learn. It’s overwhelming to start, but I think I have a handle on my sub-goals here that I would like use for growing other passions and projects.

Here are some things I plan to start checking off THIS month as I get better at blogging, branding and networking. ^^

  • stick to my blogging schedule for April
  • continue with 2 chosen link-ups (MSC monthly goals & PAC creative chaos)
  • ipukekawaii tattoo colouring book work (collaborating with a cutie on this one!)
  • start sharing daily tattoo/ kawaii updates on #supportLIPS blog
  • bookings for May #INKPLAY tattoo appointments in Japan
  • kawaii DC tumblr DIY, blog it!
  • Girl Scouts of America Central Maryland’s Girl Con, blog it!
  • HAPPY Birthday #KAWAIIindaHood + Kawaii Art at E.L. Haynes Wellness Day, blog it!
  • update DC KawaiiStyle with kawaii event reports
  • update I.P. Brand Ink & Art portfolio & art event reports
  • schedule and plan for next month!
  • commit to my new kawaii Instagram format

Let’s shout GAMBARE!

I am all about encouraging each other. So here at Gambare ipukekawaii, you a part of a community, whether it’s seen or unseen. ^^ So please keep reading for a communal accountability activity at the end of this post. Let’s work on encouraging each other through our crazy dreams and goals~ K!

So let’s hop to it with April’s creative workflow!

MyCreative Life

It’s crazy how I used to have to wait until spring and summer hit before being asked about themed tattoo days/ months, group shows, and other creative deeds. But these days, it’s almost always a full calendar of creativity and I am more than thankful. Hooray for growth, yea?! *freeze frame high-five*

So here are the (big) creative deets for April. Other things may or may not present themselves, but I vow to focus on these first and not drive myself creatively batty. (maybe … 😅)

✨Little INKPLAY Shop

My tattoo bookings went through a (MASSIVE) information update. If you’re interested in my work or bookings, you can book here, at your convenience!

Now I have to organise for my customer appreciation storytelling idea! This’ll be a super fun project and creative way to say THANK YOU!

March Round-up

I’ll also have a VERY special announcement NEXT MONDAY, so please stay tuned.

✨Arts & Crafts at Blind Whino  

It already happened and was a BLAST! Now I just gotta tell yah all about it!

✨Cherry Blast

I am so stoked for this event! DC KawaiiStyle family even had the opportunity to represent with Fox 5. It’ll be bigger and better than the years before! And my painting is due Friday. >>.<<

Check out some of my art from Cherry Blast 2015 here and please wish me luck! ^.^


✨BYOB Hanami Bento & Crafting Meet-up

I am SUPER excited that Terra will be hosting this. I will be holding down the fort doing some kawaii crafting for the Sakura Matsuri workshops. We’re still planning the meet-up info and things.

Of course, I am open to feedback, comments, and constructive criticism so please don’t be shy! Hold me accountable, I warmly welcome it ~
