One a Day in May Challenge

Cami 7:14

So we can talk about one a day in May because that was super fun that happened a month ago or so. So if you guys were following along on Instagram, I did this thing called one day may with Cami Monet. We’ll recap the idea from Katherine, who we had on the show of kitty meow boutique, and basically creating one product a day for the month of May. And it was so fun because so many of y’all did it too. And it was kind of like this whole like, design Blitz and like creativity Blitz to just like, push yourself to finish something once a day. And honestly, I learned so much for myself with like creativity and like how I work and like pushing the limits to like, see what I’m actually capable of. And now I want to do this Like every other month, like, I’m not even kidding, Elisabeth, like, I had so much fun doing it.

I felt like I needed it. Sometimes it’s nice to put guidelines for yourself in order to actually like, get something done. You know what I mean? Because it can be super loose being your own boss. So when you had like, this pressure and people watching you, I mean, there was like, not that many people watch me but you know what I mean? Like you hold yourself accountable, accountable when you have something on Instagram that you’re talking about. So I was like, okay, gotta do it. Gotta do it. And like, even though each product every single day, like one might have not been like the greatest thing I’ve ever created, but everything I’ve created and one day has sold, so at least there’s that there’s not one product that’s like still sitting there like everything is has sold at least one or two or one or two of. So it’s been good, but I feel like having those moments to push yourself are really, really helpful too.

Elisabeth 8:48

Yeah, I definitely agree that once you like set that parameter for yourself, it was definitely like hard to stick to in some senses because you’re like, gosh, I have to do one every single day. But I feel like the more Do you like flex that muscle and the more you did it, it became easier along the way. Definitely like I feel like I even like created like a whole new like card template for myself but just like you know basically like when I started the did the little penguin birthday one you know and I was like I like the way this looks and then I just kind of created some along the same thing. So it wasn’t even like reinventing the wheel but just like swapping out the animal for something else. And making like a totally different design from like a design template I created for myself. Does that mean yes.

Elisabeth 9:26

Yeah, I definitely agree that that you have kind of like a couple different templates like some of them have the watercolor script, you have them have the watercolor black letters then some of them have just like really simple Sarah type and without with an animal on it. So yeah, you kind of have these like little different like design categories now which is like so helpful for you to be able to just plug in things going forward. Yeah, makes it super easy.

What to do if you’ll miss us during our summer break!

This is the shameless side plug you guys really quick because that’s what we do on the show.
