34 before 35 update

Hard to believe we are to May already. Time is sure flying although the last week of April seemed to go really slow.

Here is my list of 34 Things I want to do before I turn 35!
4. Have 100 sales in my Etsy shop.-2 sales of 3 items. Total so far is 8 sales of a total of 15 items.
5. Have 75 followers on my blog.-14 actually listed as followers.
6. Maintain 50 items in my Etsy shop. I have so many things I want to make and hopefully it will be hard to have 50 items in my shop all the time because hopefully things will be selling!-29 items right now.
9. Create digital cards. Think the cards you get at Christmas. Great for birth announcements, birthday invitations, Graduation open houses, wedding save the dates and more.-Made 2.
10. Declutter. I am tired of all the junk we have. I have started with my scrapbook stuff and actually look forward to creating because I don't get caught up in the stuff.-Make-up bag has been cleaned out and we used a lot of stuff from the cabinets.
12. Do more reading of creative/business books. I have a massive list of them to read.-Read a lot on branding this month.
13. Learn to design elements in Photoshop Elements. I really want to learn to make digital elements for digital cards and stuff.-Played with some print ideas.
14. Drink 3 bottles of water daily. Mostly to drink less pop each day. I am a huge pop drinker and need to cut back.-Not bad, but could do better and will in May.
15. Do more with photo editing. One thing is I want to go back and do some things with my older pics and also there is so much more fun stuff I can do with pictures.-Have a good workflow down for general editing, I want to do more with some creative editing stuff.
16. Have 10 custom orders. I would love to have more, but I really want to make more custom items for people. Be it banners, cards or scrapbooks, bring it on.-2 banners, up to 9 so I'm almost there.
24. Stay better caught up on pictures, editing and uploading. Upload to Shutterfly, Flickr and other spots. Also be better about backing up.-Did pretty good with the exception of baseball pictures. I take way too many and don't see myself cutting back any.
32. Participate more at Flickr, Etsy groups and Etsyprenuer.-Was doing really good and then baseball started. I will get them caught up though.
34. Do more to encourage Handmade Items!! I don't care if it's jewelry or cards or what, I just really want to do more to encourage buying handmade.-Did a blog post on ideas for Mother's Day and also told several friends about Etsy and a few little local shops. 

I forgot to take a picture of the name banner, but here is the Happy Birthday part of the banner. I LOVE the bright primary colors, especially for a first birthday party.
