Updates Galore – What to Expect from fallenpeach

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been super quiet here lately, but I’m in the middle of a million projects and I’m hoping to be back blogging by the end of July at the earliest. I am incredibly excited about everything we’ve been working on and I can’t wait to show off. 😀

Here is what you can expect from fallenpeach in the coming weeks:

1. My domain transfer finally went through. Which means that I’ll be transferring this blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org and to fallenpeach.com officially, something that intimidates me a little. I’m hoping nothing goes horribly awry, but please be patient!

2. I have about 21 brand new bookmark designs that I photographed today and will be listing in the shop over the coming weeks! There are some great road trip kitch images as well as some beautiful hot air balloon images!

3. I also have three sets of 4 coasters photographed and almost ready to list! Yay for new products!

4. We are slowly building up our graphic design company, Side Route Studio, and I’m hoping to start working on the website soon. Stay tuned for updates on that. For a sneak peek at what to expect you can check out the temporary webspace here – Side Route Studio.


And on that note, back to work I go!




June Goals, 2013

the meetup banner 2013

Is anyone else amazed that it’s already June?  May was a surprisingly productive month for me and I think I’m getting better at focusing and keeping myself from getting overwhelmed. Let’s look at May:

MAY GOALS – Focus on Blog and Portfolio

– Make new sidebar graphics – have you seen my new sidebar yet?

– Make list of blog topics for future posts  The list isn’t big, but I do have a list of blog topics to pull from. I’m hoping this will help.

– Make custompeach blog portfolio page (s) Have you seen them yet?! Graphic Design and Custom Art

– sort items on tablet portfolio and make into a neat, easy to browse set of folders with only the best of the best  DONE! Tablet portfolio ready to go!

– check out other blog templates, make sure this is the right one for me  I changed blog templates and love the new one!

– re-evaluate blog schedule, make official calendar I have a general guideline for what days I post certain types of posts. In May I started making a more detailed schedule. I’m using the Windows desktop app Scratch Pad to keep a dated list of posts. Once I write the post I delete it from the list. I haven’t been using it too terribly long (try a week), but so far so good. I just need to get a few weeks in the list so that I’m ahead of the game.

Other Goals

– finish Steampunk outfit and accessory build for SPWF Our outfits and accessories were super awesome, did you see the photo at the bottom of this post?

– apply to another craft fair  for Fall, research more Spring fairs – I did look for Spring fairs (without success) but did not apply for Fall fairs yet. BOO.

– at least photograph new bookmarks if not put into shop. – I didn’t do this either, but I will in June.


Awesomely Productive May I had there! I am, seriously, really proud of myself. I hope that I can keep this momentum going for June. Although the one craft fair we are signed up for isn’t until August, My Overall Goal for June is: Craft Fair Preparation.

– Find all craft fair display pieces and put in one place

– Buy new gray sheets for tables (I want to change my color scheme from black)

– Sort new display pieces and decide on new table layout

– Have a new banner made

– Have a stamp made

– Decide on sale items

– Order supplies for new keychains and pendants

– Decide on new prints to get together/have printed, buy more mattes for them.

– Decide on framed prints, change out from what is already framed if necessary

– Buy clipboard for e-mail list sign up

– Make checklist of what to bring (don’t forget snacks and water)


Other Goals:

– Photograph new bookmarks

– List at least one new bookmark

– Continue craft fair research
